    Re: Collings Vs. Northfield Vs. Kelley

    Iíd buy the Kelley. Besides the fact that Iím drawn to the work of independent builders, and Skip is a heckuva nice guy here on the Cafe, a used instrument should already have the depreciation taken...
  2. Re: Open Back / Old Time Banjos - Comparisons to Mando Builders

    Iím resurrecting this thread which Iíve looked at so much over the last year and this post in particular. If Rickard is the Bill Collings of the banjo world, might Chuck Ogsbury of OME be the...

    Re: Blue Chip pick for oval hole mandolin

    I had one of those picks back when they were labeled Tremelo and liked it quite a bit on flattops ó very articulate ó but predictably ended up losing the clear thing never to be recovered. I...

  5. Re: total noob but wanted real people's info on what to start wit

    If I’m not mistaken, I believe that Jimmy Page wrote “The Battle of Evermore” on a Martin A mandolin belonging to John Paul Jones, and such instruments are routinely available in your $600-1000...

    Hey Tyler! Thanks for following up with me here. You are correct that your response for some reason ended up in my spam folder, and I apologize if my post came off as unfair or critical.

    Re: Collings, Northfield, Girouard

    Without being flippant, my immediate answer was "the used one." Mandolins are one of the few things in life that many people believe in quality as they depreciate in price. At the very least, I'd...

    Re: A style Kimble, Heiden or ...

    It was listed as available on Friday and “Sold Out” as of last night. Perhaps that explains why Tyler didn’t respond to my inquiries.

    Re: A style Kimble, Heiden or ...

    Tyler White had a pretty one listed on his website . . . briefly. I hope someone here snagged it.

    Re: Mid-Missouri M-1

    This is good advice. I would only add that, for whatever reason, flattop mandolins don’t seem for the most part to depreciate or retain their value at the same rates as archtops.
  14. Re: Open-back banjo recommendation for a mandolin player?

    I’m interested in this thread and easily convinced that I need another instrument. Why should I (or should I not) want to buy this one?

    Re: Mid-Missouri M-1

    My first mandolin was a Mid-Missouri M0 that I sold used a few years back for around $500.

    Iím not sure about the physics and mechanics, or the difference that it makes or fails to make, but I like the floating ebony tailpiece on my Black GBOM!

    IIRC, that’s the same outfit that makes Ameritage cases.
  22. Re: Interested in picking up mandolin, advice on buying first.

    For playing folk at home, I’d derive more satisfaction from a flattop oval made of solid woods by an independent luthier here in the U.S.

    Re: Strap for Weber Gallatin

    Unless you intend to attach the strap every time you use it and detach it before putting the mandolin in its case, that buckle is probably the biggest threat to mar the finish of your Weber. While it...
  24. Re: Interested in picking up mandolin, advice on buying first.

    It’s not a minor thing. In the niche market of mandolins, the lefthanded instrument is an additional niche, meaning limited options particularly for used offerings. Any chance you’d consider...
