  1. Re: Intermediate Mando - Good Mando to Step up to?

    My actual younger sister turns 61 this year, and she does not play mandolin (played ukulele as child.)
  2. Re: Intermediate Mando - Good Mando to Step up to?

    I'm 66, so you could be my younger sister! LOL!! And my Collings is an MT, I listened to an MT2 and liked the sound of the MT better (and it was cheaper) and I have not been disappointed. I listened...
  3. Re: Intermediate Mando - Good Mando to Step up to?

    I completely agree - I will never be as good as my Collings, Weber, and Pava deserve, but they will never hold me back either. I am still practicing and trying to discover the subtleties that these...
  4. Re: Intermediate Mando - Good Mando to Step up to?

    You could call The Mandolin Store (NFI), I did when I was upgrading, and told them what kind of music I was wanting to play, and how much I could spend, and asked for their recommendations. Then I...

    Re: The wear of celluloid

    If you want to really try to see what you like best, there are 2 travelling pick samplers that you can sign up for and see what you like best (do a search for "travelling pick sampler.") Good luck!

    Re: MAS Determination

    The correct number of mandolins is also determined by a factor of time - as in how many hours do you have to play them all? My correct number at the moment is 4, and there are only 2 others I would...

    Re: Pickguard or no pickgaurd?

    I never had an armrest until my Collings came with one (bought used.) I tried it, and loved it. Now I have armrests on all my mandos, it keeps the edge from cutting into my arm (comfort.) Side...

    Re: What are you looking forward to?

    Being able to walk without a crutch sometime fairly soon
    Seeing my son in person.
    Being able to play and sing music with others again.
    If I never wear a mask again, it will be too soon.

    I might have to decline the MAS vaccine, if one is ever developed. It might make me reject my instruments....

    Re: Protocol for a trade.

    I did a trade once, and did it the same way Jill did. I didn't personally know the person, but we communicated enough that I had a pretty good comfort level with the trade. We exchanged shipping #s...

    Re: Found an old Sicilian bowlback

    Thank you for the comment - my Puglisi is my favorite of my bowlbacks - just sounds and plays so nicely. Better than my American Conservatory mandolin.
  13. Re: Small hands and neck width - instruments that fit/don't

    I have a Weber Bitterroot oval hole, it fits my hands very well (as does my Pava and my Collings.) I believe for me, neck width is more of an issue than neck shape (I also play guitar, and that's...

    Re: Kentucky Brand Mandolins-opinion

    I own an older Kentucky KM-805 I got in trade for a guitar that didn't fit me. It "plays above it's weight," but it doesn't measure up to my 3 main mandolins. Its benefit for me is it's my only...

    Re: Gratitude

    I agree that no mandolin that I own will ever hold me back from progressing in my mandolin journey. I am grateful for what I have, and very much enjoy them. I occasionally suffer bouts of MAS, but my...
  16. Re: Small hands and neck width - instruments that fit/don't

    I too have small hands and very short fingers, and can play both C- and V- neck mandolins with comfort. I have to alter fingerings with some chords, because I just can't reach, although picking is...

    Re: Too Cold to Ship Your Instrument

    I agree, some things are just not worth the risk. I work too hard for my money to risk damaging an instrument due to impatience.

    Re: An honest-to-goodness VULCAN HARP!

    Actually, pon farr only occurs once every 7 years. Gives them something to look forward to (Star Trek fan since the 1960s.)
  19. Re: I decided to hang it on the wall: it might be safer there

    You are correct - I too would be willing to take it for safekeeping, but you got the first offer in, so you do it and make the sacrifice for all of the rest of us.

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    Is the $1450 for all 3 instruments? If so, only a little overpriced.

    Re: Vorhees Bowlback- very interesting

    "Probably needs to be restrung" - REALLY?!? But it's got really interesting ornamentation, and I like it, just not the price.
  22. Re: What Sensation Should You Feel for "The One?"

    What he said. I got that feeling from my Pava and my Weber, and I decided I needed to try a Collings. I finally found one I could afford, paid for it, and when it arrived, it gave me the same feeling...

    Re: New player - Mandolin

    As for picks, I too came to mandolin from guitar (acoustic/folk,) and started with my guitar picks. I find many people recommend thicker picks for mandolin than I care for. I prefer less than 1mm...
