    I’ve got 10 mandolins, but about 45 trumpets.

    It's a simple formula.

    n=m+1

    where n is the number of mandolins you need and m is the number of mandolins you have.

    Let me make one thing perfectly clear -

    I do not own and have never owned even one mandocello.

    For 24 hrs I was down to 3 mandolins. I had a Eastman 305 in the shop for a setup and someone wanted to know if I'd sell it. Sure, why not. When I went to drop off the gig bag that belonged with it I fell in love with a Northfield the luthier was playing. 24hrs later the money from the Eastman went towards the Northfield. It's a disease.
    Out of tune and out of time.

    I've had an Old Wave A oval-hole for about 18 years and have paired that an f-holed mandolin. Over the years I've had a Gerald Anderson A, a Collings MT, and two Old Wave C# (2-point) mandolins. So, mostly I've had two, but just recently sold a 2-point Old Wave F-hole leaving me the my Old Wave A that's served me well over these past 18 years. Gonna see how long I can last with just one.
