    Re: RIP Arthur Stern

    I was a fan of Mr. Stern. I always appreciated the time he took here and in private. His love of all things mandolin, glass, his panache, and his awesome Maine Coon Cats. My condolences to those...

    Joe Brent and Alon Sariel have an album "John Dowland: An Englishman in New York" you can find Joe on Instagram and FB (I believe). You might get some help from him.

    Re: No frills vs fancier mandolins

    I think this is a builder by builder question, frankly. I would imagine the builders that carefully carve their plates work them to their potential. Do you get different "better" tone out of more...

    If your bridge is already at lower limit and you need lower, are you sure there isn't anything else going on with the instrument?
