    Default Columbus Ohio -- setup, shop, recommendations

    I have a Pac Rim mandolin that has been on loan to one niece and is now at another. I have not seen it in a while, and am thinking about having her bring it to someone to check setup, etc.

    Suggestions appreciated.

    THanks,

    Dave

    How's the Bluegrass Store's selection of instruments? I'm going to be in Columbus later this year for work, and am curious about good shops to check out. (Sorry for tagging onto the OP's original post.)

    They致e got some. I was there about 3 weeks ago. About 8 or 9 mandos, mostly if not all used. Also guitars and ukes, harmonicas, etc.

    I bought a very clean Kentucky KM-254 for my gal from them.

    Saturdays they have an awesome bluegrass jam in the basement.

    Good to know. I live about 2 1/2 hours NE of Columbus, but my sister lives in Columbus, so on one of my visits to her I may have to make a side trip!

    The Blugrass Musician's Supply (the name on the sign) is a great store for guitars, banjos, and mandos, plus all your gear, books, and recorded music. Not only that, they have a Saturday jam in the basement from 10am to 4pm. Locals wander in and out of the jam, and visitors like me were warmly welcomed. I played for hours, then browsed till closing time, walking out with a short stack of CD's the folks there recommended I try based on what I liked (Danny Roberts was a suggestion, and a really good one at that.) as a really nice bonus, there's kolaches and German food just up the street. Very much a great little gem in Columbus.
