    Default Kentucky km 855

    Just bought a Kentucky KM855 from a forum member. It is my Christmas present to me. I was sent a picture of it and if it sounds half as god as it looks, it will be a real sweetheart. Now if I can just integrate it into my "other stuff" without the wife figuring it out I'll be cookin'. Wish me luck. Thanks

    I have a 855 and it is a fantastic mandolin. Great tone and fit and finish is excellent. A work of art. The problem is you need another mandolin for everyday noodling. I am afraid to scratch or ding the 855.

    I have a 855 and I'm really happy with it and it sounds better and better the more I play it. At the beginning it was a little too "bass-y" but since I put D Addario EXP 74s on it (forum advice!) it's perfectly balanced - and very loud! I
    Glad to hear from fellow 855ers because there seem to be not many of them around. ..
    Have fun with your new Mando!

    I have that taken care of already. I have a great sounding KM150. There is still a picture of the 855 I got in the classifieds.
