    Try to avoid breathing in the diatomaceous earth. It can create lung and breathing issues.

    Re: Work distraction

    Actually, I find five or ten minutes of playing to be helpful with writer’s block or general work fatigue.

    Re: Bedbugs And Mandolins

    If your landlord has a license to rent to the public (which he may not have, which could put him in jail or severely fined) then he has a legal duty to fumigate effectively.

    Re: Octave mandolins are totally addictive

    It's all relative. Aside from the fact that they are both tuned differently.

    Re: Octave mandolins are totally addictive

    I'm quite content with the Brock GBOM and the Girouard GBOM. The rest will probably go quietly. I am hunting a Romero open back banjo.

    Re: Types of Mandolin Collections

    I have a bunch of mandolins; Heiden, Collings, Girouard, Ellis, Campanella, Kimble, Smart, Brock, Northfield..... So, that's not a legitimate collection?

    Re: Collings MT vs Pava A

    Is it a bad thing to offer a viable alternative? There is also a Northfield M in the Classifieds. Also a Hinde A at Morgan Music.

    Re: Collings MT vs Pava A

    The Pava is going to have a more traditional sound. It will also require more break in time, but if you are playing in a band it might serve you better, if you take the time to break it in. If you...

    Re: Collings MT vs Pava A

    I am going to assume that the Pava has an Adirondack top, and the MT will have an Engelmann. Big difference in the tonal qualities.

    The finishes may also be different, and as Rich states, the...

    The only instrument that will kill a banjo or a fiddle (possibly both at the same time) is a set of bagpipes.
