    Re: Anyone been to Nashville trying mandolins?

    I don't know if all the stores are willing, but TMS did (for me) play two mandolins that I was interested in on the phone so I could hear them back-to back (I ended up buying both because I couldn't...

    Re: Ever just love the sound of your mandolin?

    I love the sound of my mandolins every time I play them. That's why i have them! They all sound wonderful in different ways, that's why I have more than one. Now if I could only play up to the...

    Re: ISO a decent starter Mandolin

    If yo play multiple instruments, you (most likely) have a pretty good ear. I am also a multiple instrument musician, and when I started on mandolin, I bought a "starter" instrument and quickly...
  5. Re: Mandolins with violin-style construction are nothing new...

    I really like the headstock - I too wonder how it sounds. It surely is a good-looking instrument.

    I would like to play bowlback mandolin with Jim (Ohio and New York are not that far apart,) but the pandemic/quarantine between the two states is an issue currently. Maybe someday (Jim, are any of...

    Re: Bad habits?

    We all have bad habits, some worse than others. I have very small hands and very short fingers, I sometimes (with some chords) will fret my G-string with my thumb like when I can't reach low "E" on...

    Re: "The Loar" by Weber?

    It does look like a quality build, I know nothing about Weber building mandolins for the owner of the Loar name, but it sounds believable. Would like to see the instrument and try it, but my MAS is...

    My spouse is tolerant, but wishes I had fewer "obsessions." I keep saying I could do much worse things! LOL!!

    Re: D'Addario Chris Thile Signature Pick

    I've been thinking about trying a D'Addario Chris Thile Signature pick, my hesitation is I rarely use any pick thicker than 0.9mm. I guess if I hated it, I could always sell it.

    The Reverb instrument could be interesting without the nearly pulled out tailpiece and without the side cracks.
  16. Re: Standard Notation for the Tab-Addicted Mandolinist

    Sight reading (at least in piano) means the ability to play a piece accurately without needing to practice it. I do not have that ability with mandolin pieces of much difficulty. (Chords, yes,...

    Re: Beginner info

    +1 for Artistworks. If you do one lesson/week it comes out to $2.69/week. That's pretty cheap for a lesson. NFI, just a satisfied customer for 2 years.

    Re: How Many Like Blonde Mandos??

    I never liked them until I bought my Collings MT (which is a honey amber.) The only reason I bought it is because the price was right. I love the mandolin, and now I don't mind blonde mandos at all....

    That squeaky clean Vega bowlback is tempting, but I probably wouldn't play it.

    Re: Types of Mandolin Collections

    I've been told I have "obsessions." I have 4 bowlbacks, my Collings, my Pava, and my Weber. I am considering adding a 1920s Gibson A-style, and a Weber F-style Bitterroot (to match my Weber A-style...

    Re: Collings MT vs Pava A

    I own both a Collings MT and a Pava A, and I do not ever forsee letting either of them go. I enjoy the different sounds of both instruments, and they both play easily. The Collings MT is "brighter"...

    Re: Mandolin purchase advice for a new player

    This is true to an extent, but not completely. I think there is a very definite, noticeable improvement between the "entry-level" mandolins and the $2000 - $3000 level mandolins, and after that point...
