    OK, I found a video of my friend Dr. Frank Claudy playing "Old Decency," so I'm throwing in for that. I'll try to get him to record it with me if it wins the horse race.

    Re: Kimble or Duff F5?

    Play them both and decide. I like Kimbles but have never owned one. I do have a killer Duff F5. Love it. When I wore the frets down Dale Ludwig did an excellent job installing those big EVO frets,...

    Re: How much do you practice?

    At least an hour. I like to play as much as possible, around other things that need to happen. The morning is the best time to practice. I usually start practicing with my second cup of coffee. (I...

    Re: F5 with an OVAL hole?

    I like your thinking. I think I'd give that Collings a serious look and then go from there. I also like your adventurous ideas as to fonts and type sizes. Not sure why we're all always using the...

    I'll have to get my copy out and read it again. Thanks for the poke. Bob is a nice guy and a great player. And a fellow Iowan from up the road.

    Re: Are People Buying Less Mandolins Now?

    Interesting to read the comments. I was expecting to see more bargains in the ads here than I have, but I'm not exactly tracking things on a spread sheet. One of my sons has a high-end bike shop in a...
  10. Re: My Mandolin satisfaction maybe related to the cost

    I'm not sure price and satisfaction are related for me. If I paid a lot and it sounds really good, I'm happy. If it didn't cost too much and I like playing, I'm happy. If the playability is lacking...

    Re: Daily Cleaning Routine

    I wipe mine off with a cloth and some of Dave Harvey's secret polish when I change the strings. Mainly, I want to get the beer spittle off top and upper bout. Gross but true.
