    Re: DAWG picks. YES, they work

    NMD Morris A5

    I recently acquired a morris a5, and I have to say I am shocked by the quality of this mandolin. My A5 has a redwood top and curly maple back. She's loud as all heck and has such sustain that even my...

    Re: Eastman MDA315 mandola! Yes!

    Re: Thinking About A Pava

    I went from an eastman 305 to a pava and the difference is night and day. Yes, the pava is much easier to play. It's got a more rounded V shape, not at all chunky like a Kentucky or Weber. It's also...
