  2. Re: Open Back / Old Time Banjos - Comparisons to Mando Builders

    Nice. You rarely see those for sale in a store. They are mostly special orders.

    I watch Will Seeder’s website regularly and found this a few months back:...

    Re: Jay Ungar, Mandolin Picker

    I took a mandolin workshop with Jay at Ashoken Southern week. He’s a great player and a great teacher. He also plays old time banjo.

    Re: Octave Mandolin Course

    The man to learn counter melody and harmony lines from is Dave Surette. He is the master at this. His Green Mandolin and Northern Roots CD have a lot of octave and bouzouki on them.

    Poll: Re: Poll - Torrefied vs Natural

    I own several of each. There are tonal differences, especially in the all torrified. You get a little more volume and the top end and mid range tone is sweeter. Same model mandolin, same woods,...

    Louise, you could see the signs coming. Collings has fully booked through parts of 2022 (yes, 2022). They've put new Waterloo orders and case production on hold. Northfield is shipping out...

    Re: Collings, Northfield, Girouard

    I'm going to make a prediction, pretty soon (within 6 to 8 months) the used ones will be as much as the new ones. I've been buying and selling for over 25 years. I have never seen a market like...

    If you search through the Cafe archives you will find lots of opinions on these, and even a similar thread with individual observations.
  15. Re: looker! natural blonde Collings MT-2 Mandolin Fully Torrefied

    It will be sold by then. Things are selling at a pretty fast pace. There is tint on there also. Collings no longer does blonde or natural. It’s considered amber.
  16. Re: looker! natural blonde Collings MT-2 Mandolin Fully Torrefied

    The torrification darkens the color. TME has a used sunburst with waverlies, Birdseye, and a pick guard. Not on the website yet. Great mandolin, from the Namm show a few years back. These are hard...

    People keep saying that, but there are easily at least three on-line banjo workshops and any given number so on-line festivals, boot camps, etc. on any given weekend. The mandolin activities...
