    Re: Kimble two point reviews?

    That was one of the recent trio that each had a different burst. I'm digging Will's experimentation.
  3. Re: F'in Mandolin Shootout with a Nugget, Gilchrist and Hogan!

    Really nicely done comparison video. All 3 are stellar and that Hogan is a bargain with how well it hangs with the more well known builders. The Nugget is super clear and has great note separation,...

    Re: How Many Like Blonde Mandos??

    Blondes can be a lot of fun. Here's a couple I used to own.

    Before there was a Goldrush, there was Blondie. A CD signed Master Model.

    Brad - Are you making a sheet of material and then cutting them out or are you rough shaping and then drying?

    Re: Heiden Artist Plus A model mandolin

    Legitimate question, you own at least one Ellis, but your responses are often about Girouard and trying them over everything else. Do you choose the Girouard over your Ellis or is there another game...

    Re: Types of Mandolin Collections

    I've accumulated more than I've collected. But, all with the eye of finding "the one." It's funny to me, my primary instrument is fiddle/violin, and I found my one about 10 years ago. I hardly...

    Re: Gilchrist and Heiden - Big Indian Blues

    In retrospect, I need to restring the Gilchrist and do another comparison. The Heiden has J74 strings and the Gilchrist has Mangan Monel. I don't think the Gilchrist responds well to these. I...

    Gilchrist and Heiden - Big Indian Blues

    I finally started to record some comparison of my A style mandolins from each of these master builders. This is Gilchrist 522 and Heiden 92, 2001 and 2018 builds respectively. The Gilchrist is Red...

    Re: Traditionally voiced A-style?

    Actually, if you can find one of the varnished Kentucky KM900's, you're 90% of the way to the top of the heap. Unreasonably good for the money.

    Re: Traditionally voiced A-style?

    Yes it is... ;)

    I'd be curious to play the A style at Carter's that is just a few serial numbers away. The A style I have, built in 2001, is a completely different beast. Thick bass and a...

    Re: DI Box w/ XLR IN & Mute?

    +1 on all of this. Yes, the Felix is a bit pricey, but it is a great piece of gear and very versatile. I've used it with my clip on mic, and like Dang mentioned, I've also run my large condenser to...

    It was a very good price. It didn't have the cosmetic details of the Artist models, but it had all of the sound.

    Tom Ellis is making a few A style "Traditions." I believe there's at least one in the wild now.

    Re: Heiden Artist Plus A model mandolin

    That's a beautiful instrument! I do like the more traditional A style headstock as well, that's what's on mine #92. I'm not super familiar with the model distinctions for Heiden. What is an Artist...
