Thread: Mandolin Tour....

    Would there be folks out there interested in checking out one of Pavel Sucek's F hole A style mandolins? I was recently given the opportunity to become Pavel's U.S. Rep and have a brand new A style that I would like to ship around to folks here on the board in order to introduce everyone to this fine Czech builder. Thanks to our good buddy Dale and his "enlightened" vision w/the Michael Kelly "play & ship it" model I would invite folks to sign up and enjoy the same experience with a new Sucek A style.

    *Important to note Scott was generous enough to allow me to post this announcement here and the ground rules would be the same as with the Michael Kelly "tour" Pavel Sucek has extensive building experience within the Czech Republic - is committed to high quality craftsmenship and offers a tremenous value -
    Although I am heading up the distribution of these nice mandolins there is a small group of folks that have formed a financial partership to help support the musical arts. That said this could be alot of fun. Anyone interested?
    .......Thanks again Scott.....

    Sounds like we're picking up steam. Lets see how things go hopefully more folks will climb aboard the mando tour bus. Thanks for the interest.

    I would love to take a whack at her!

    I mean... ahem... I promise no hitting the mandolin, only playing. Sorry about that.

    Seriously, I'd love to try her out.

    Is it going to make it out to Wintergrass? That might be a good time to get it out to a lot of people (myself included!)

    There will be a Co-mando jam in Northern Calif. on March 14th. Probably 30 or more pickers coming. I'd be happy to escort it to the jam if the schedule can arranged.

    Since i wasn't directly a part of the Dale-driven Mike K. mando tour I'll need to rely on you all to describe the ground rules again and also let me know what area we'll need to improve upon. What do folks think is a fair timeframe to spend per person with the instrument? Also how did you guys/gals share the shipping expense? Thanks again for the interest its going to be great....

    I meant to add that as long as someone will take responsibility I'd be appreciative to have folks share the A style at the "events". The more the merrier.....the goal is exposure...so that'd be ideal.

    Spare Change,

    I was on the MK tour. As for shipping, each person just paid shipping(and insurance) to the next person on the list. I think it worked pretty well. I'd like to participate in your tour also. Thanks.

    When my Sucek arrives, anyone in the Philly region is welcome to come play it. (Especially if you bring some of yours for me to try.)

    Good news folks...the new Pavel Sucek mandolins are completed and what fun they are to see. Any chance one of you nice mando tour guys or gals could help me "shrink" one of these pix to be displayed for those interested in the tour? I'd be very grateful. Thanks.
