    Re: F hole on the side?

    Increasingly common on guitars. I don't play well enough to want to hear myself better.
  4. Re: Name the tune? (The Mandolin Store Eastman Mandola demo)

    I believe it is called "Watch Me Play Fast."

    That is James from The Mandolin Store. Nice guy and obviously can really play. I've talked to him on the phone when deciding what mandolin to buy from...
  5. Re: Purchase a good entry mandolin in EU in 2021

    The tuners on the 300 series Eastman mandolins are certainly adequate and many people use them quite happily with no modification or upgrade. While everyone agrees the 500 series have "better" tuners...

    Re: Eastman "CLA" meaning

    It is their reddish brown solid color (classic). The other choice, when they offer a choice, is SB, meaning sunburst.

    Look at the MD 805 on this page:

    Re: REELS: What are your favorites?

    There's multiple reels?

    I thought it was one reel with 36,000 different names.

    Re: The Sound of the American Mandolin

    I went to Tony's website, Mandolin Central, and was amazed by the pictures there. It looked like Tony lost 200 lbs, shaved his beard, and put on a suit. Amazing transformation!

  11. Re: Any info on this mandolin would be appreciated

    Also, the Cash Converters web site shows a couple of Pilgrim round hole mandolins at 199 that look interesting.
  12. Re: Any info on this mandolin would be appreciated

    The Adam Black mandolin shows a truss rod cover. The McNeela does not. That would make me believe the Adam Black was made to a higher standard and has more potential to be adjusted to a better set up.
  13. Re: What price level and up gets you a "lifelong keeper" mandolin

    I bought my forever mandolin in January of this year for $725. There are, of course, better mandolins in the world. But, there is no reason for me to buy one. My Eastman MD 505 is not holding me back...

    Re: Q Mandolins

    I am pretty sure that since Jim Olson started using CNC to build his guitars he hasn't been able to sell a one of them.:)
  16. Re: An (incomplete) list of recorded black mandolinists

    This thread goes back a year but I am just seeing it. I was fortunate to see blues mandolin player Yank Rachell in Indianapolis near the end of his life. My friend and guitar teacher Dave Morgan made...
  17. Re: Info on this antique shop mandolin find?

    I would start with just restringing it with something light as suggested and give it a test drive.

    Re: It Made the Mandolin Sound Better

    I have found that I can make my mandolin sound better by handing it to someone else.

    Re: Tune from The Mandolin Store Site

    I much prefer the Mandolin Store demos by Adam . He plays a variety of things that give, at least to me, a better feel for what the mandolins can do.

    James, the speed demon in the demo referenced,...
