    Default Massachusetts mandolin tasting meet


    Hey everyone!
    Here's our first Massachusetts
    mandolin tasting meet video series..
    You will get to see and hear some
    wonderful handmade mandolins.
    Dude, Gil, Brentrup, Duff, Stanley, Collings, Pheonix, and a Brunkalla...
    This wasn't taken with any hi-def gear
    Just an I-Phone. The video is split into
    two segments and for some reason part
    1 plays after part 2, so be sure to watch the whole
    thing through to see the introduction and description of each
    Mandolin. There is also a part three that wouldn't fit, but I will
    Post that separately. It features each mandolin being played by
    Ken Reback displaying a bluegrass style chop rhythm.
    Also there will be some photos attached.
    Enjoy!
    Below is a list of the make and models in order played. Feel free to leave comments.
    1-Kentucky F-5
    2-Collings MF5
    3-Pheonix Standard
    4-Stanley V-5c
    5-Gilchrist Model 5
    6-Dudenbostel F5
    7-Collings Mt2
    8-Duff F5
    9-Brentrup Stealth
    10-Brunkalla F5
    Thanks,
    MMTM

    An informative, scientific approach. Bravo!

    (But seriously, this behavior should be promoted and amplified)

    Nice. Did you record any comparisons of a less percussive passage being played? With this sample, it's almost impossible to tell differences in sustain between the instruments, and a couple of them should sound vastly different than the rest of the mix in that regard.
