    Re: Collings MT vs Pava A

    I've played both and considered purchasing both. When it comes to playability, I'm not sure anything is easier to play than a Collings. I was shocked, honestly. It'll have you playing like a...

    Re: $1000 Budget - What should I get?

    If you want an American build with a great tone and a luthier who guarantees his builds; Morris. Otherwise +1 on the eastman 300 series. They have a great warranty and are, in my opinion, some of the...

    Re: DAWG picks. YES, they work

    Sigh. I have about 300 dollars worth of blue chip picks. I thought I'd never stray from the brand. On a whim, I bought a pack of 10 dawgs for 10 dollars. I'm now filled with 300 dollars worth of...

    Re: Whatís after a Kentucky KM-1050?

    At this point you should be deciding what kind of tone you want. That'll help narrow down your choices re: builders.

    Re: $1000 Budget

    Ratliff's are great but you're not gonna get one for a grand. Country boy f style goes for just over 1700.

    An f style for a thousand bucks your best bet is either a Kentucky or eastman.

    Re: Well set up beater mandolin??

    OH, do I relate to this with my dog. She's chewed up all the furniture. Lol. She's a large dog, but still a small baby mentally. Being 85 lbs at four months old is a lot of power for a dog that...

    Re: Well set up beater mandolin??

    My dog is an 85 lb four month old. She jumps all over her humans and displaces whatever we are working on most of the time. I wouldn't feel safe playing my mandolins around her. Hell, she tried to...

    Re: Well set up beater mandolin??

    I don't have the tools. A basic set up kit from stewmac costs 120 dollars. At that price I might as well get the rover from elderly, but unfortunately that's not in my price range.

    I got a boerboel puppy recently and she chews absolutely everything. It's this reason that I've packed up my mandolins and stuck them in a closet. I've been looking at getting a Rogue, aka mandolin I...

    There's quite a few threads on the 272. Some have video demonstrations. I'd use the search option on the forums to look for 'em.

    I had the 272 for a bit. I liked the sound, but ultimately the feel...

    Re: Big muddy m-11 vs morris oval hole

    The m11 is all mahogany so it makes sense it would be on the "tubby" side tonally. As for a Morris oval hole, why don't you contact him? I'm sure he'd build whatever you like however you like.
