    I remember seeing that as well on his FB gig page a while ago, Nick. I think things are pretty grim in his area right now, as (I think) its economy is pretty dependent on British expats/second home...

    Anyone heard from almeriastrings?

    I bought my first good mandolin from him several years ago, and was planning to drive down the coast to visit him & his wife (pre-Covid) when I stopped hearing from him. I see that he hasn't been...

    Re: Sturgill Simpson Bluegrass Album

    I coincidently heard him for the very first time via the local radio station the other day (this album's version of "All Around You") and had to find out who the mandolin player was. Ms. Hull all the...

    Re: impulse purchase - non-mando

    As I also wanted to explore bass but have a space-challenged office/music room/man cave, I went the u-bass route. Really fun, and it for sure informs my mandolin playing. TuneFox (NFI) has been...

    Re: El Toro ?

    Hi Dwiggins,
    The El Toro will give you something to grow into for many, many years, possibly for life. The sound of Ken's mandolins is unbelievably rich.
