    Re: Why So Few Resonator Mandolins?

    Interesting discussion. I've wanted a RM-1 a quite a while and live within 15 miles of Rich Del Grosso but never made the commitment. So, after the weekly bluegrass jam, a fiddler and I end up at the...

    Re: Another airline problem

    How could this be true? You mean to say an airline employee attempted to physically remove a person's physical belongings for said person? Isn't that called theft..or assault?

    Re: why does my A string sound flat?

    440 A sounds sour to me. A well respected fiddler, who I played with for years, would occasionally play my mando. I'd check the tuning afterwards and it was always in tune except for the A which was...

    Hilarious thread if you consider the mass of personalities that make the MC so much fun while also trying at times. I know this thread started with D asking for opinions. That'll teach him.

    It wouldn't hurt for you to set it up if it were free since a professional set up might cost just as much as your mando did new. Learn to do it yourself as it's a good skill to have. The internet is...

    Re: I still don`t believe it...

    Play what you want, how you want but if I don't like it I might have to get up and get some water. Btw, the Anti-bluegrass police are just as annoying.
