    Re: Mandolin case comparison (for A-models)

    I have TKL and Superior cases (and like them,) but will keep my eyes open for a deal on a Bobelock case (I like the idea of suspending my Mandolin.) Thanks for a pretty comprehensive review (and I...

    Re: Fratelli Vinaccia 1898

    It has some issues, but $61.00, if you couldn't fix it, not a bad price for a wall-hanger.

    Re: Pick comparison

    I don't know if the pick sampler is still making rounds (post-Covid,) but if it is, you could get on the list and try a lot of different picks to see what sounds best on your mandolin. Alternatively,...

    Re: 1920s Dewick in the classifieds

    It's beautiful, too bad I don't need another instrument! (I know, we never really "need" another instrument! LOL!!)

    Re: compared to a Weber mandolin.

    I own both a Kentucky and a Weber, the Weber is WAY better than the Kentucky (tone-wise,) although the Kentucky is a nice instrument. IMHO, the neck is not wider in the Kentucky, although I have...

    Re: Describe your MAS progression

    Glad to see my list is still unchanged, am still working on improving my playing. I still read the classifieds regularly (nearly daily,) but am still satisfied with what I have. I don't think I will...

    Re: Yay or nay to a strap button

    Having drilled older wood for various construction projects (but never my mandolins,) I have to say older wood splits MUCH easier than new wood, and I would not be willing to take the risk. I use...

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

    Maybe they should have used the Gibson "pumpkin" finish on it - I think it would look more appropriate, YMMV.

    Re: Kentucky-brand info

    You are absolutely correct that above a certain dollar level there are diminishing returns. I have experienced this with other purchase items too (such as in horses, another obsession of mine. Is...

    Re: Kentucky-brand info

    I have a Kentucky KM-805, and while it is a nice instrument, it is not near the quality of my Collings MT, my Pava Player, or my Weber Bitterroot (all of which I consider very near professional...

    Re: Keep Mandolin in OHSC?

    Good for you! I actually can't run any more. I settle for walking quickly. Maybe if I was being chased by a bear, I would manage (with enough adrenalin,) but maybe I would just be bear food. :))

    Re: Blue Chip v Primetone?

    I went through a period where I bought some of just about every type of pick made in my favorite thickness (0.75-1.0mm) to see what I preferred. I have some I will use in a playing out situation, but...

    At the rate he (or she) is reducing the price, I would consider it after about 3 or 4 more price reductions. :popcorn:

    Re: Lovely Torch & Wire Blonde F4 on Reverb

    Very pretty and an oval-hole too, but too much money. At half that price, I would be hard-pressed not to make an offer.

    Re: Total Newbee looking for info

    Agree completely about the strap - even playing seated, you don't want to risk your mandolin falling off your lap and hitting the floor. It's a cheap safety issue IMHO.
