    Re: Eastman md 304 vs 314

    Here's my 2Ę. I've had the following: Eastman 504,604; Morris Flat Top, A4; Kentucky KM272, Big Muddy MW0, M2; Low end Washburn. Those are also the only oval/round hole mandolins I've played other...
  2. Re: I canít remember if learning guitar was this hard

    I'm glad you posted this. I'm pretty much in the same boat. I read the OP and thought-I can't do a lot of that stuff and I've been at this a long time (14 years). Maybe I took the wrong approach...

    I have an oval hole, solid spruce top (pressed) with laminated maple back and sides. Strung with GHS Med/Light strings. I bought it for $210 about 6 months ago. It is about 10 years old by my...

    Re: Favorite mandolin playing beverage?

    Manny's Yum. Can't get it here in Bend though. So for me it's either an Athletic Brewing (non-alcohol) craft brew, a Dr Pepper or a Jack Daniels on the rocks
  5. Re: Who Has a Northfield F5-S with Airloom case?

    I must be in my old age mentally incompetent. First and foremost, I've owned a bunch of musical instruments. I can't remember any that came with a case where it was a loose fit. Shoot even my...
  6. Re: Who Has a Northfield F5-S with Airloom case?

    David,

    I'm no expert on any of this. I'm thinking they could have shipped the incorrect case, but never even seeing a Northfield what do I know. I have never been able to turn the bridge thumb...

    Re: Jam Etiquette re: Playing Mandolin Chords

    I don't think it matters. Several teachers I've had were very direct about chopping only and on being very accurate on playing the correct chords at the correct time and timing of the chops. So, ...

    Re: Mandolin Rental

    This is not necessarily answering the OP's question, but you say "I'm wanting my son to try the mandolin....." So, he's 9 years old. Is it he who is interested in the mandolin or is it you who...
  11. Re: Best Mandolin for Traveling From Sea Level to High Desert?

    Well...........I'm going the other direction - actually to a tropical destination and I'm taking the Mandocaster with my headphone amp. Don't think the solid wood Mando's would fair too well. Also...

    NMD-Eastwood Mandocaster Ltd

    I opted for the metallic green mandocaster. Now, the only other electric instrument I have (ever played) is a cheap lap steel I bought when I was waiting for my first dobro to be built. Can't play...

    Shoot JB, back in the 60's in Seattle there was a drive in called Gil's. for 49Ę you could get a burger, fries and a shake. We always dipped the fries in the shake...... So yes - pre Wendy's
  16. Re: Final choice - Eastman MD305 or Kentucky KM250

    I would guess it would come down to the neck differences and which you would prefer. If you can't compare then it's a crap shoot. I had an Eastman 305 as well as a Kentucky 272 (oval hole version...

    I bought my last mando from Dennis at The Mandolin Store (I believe my fifth mando purchase from there) as part of my downsizing move. He cut me a very good deal and even did the set up himself...

    Re: Total Newbee looking for info

    Mike (the OP), I had an Eastman 305 that I purchased as a travel instrument a few years ago. I liked it a lot. So much so that it ended up being my main player. The tuners are much maligned here,...

    I have owned a Kentucky 272 (oval hole version of the 250) and an Eastman 305. My 305 had no tuner issues so no change out needed. Otherwise I think maxr did a great job on the overall review. My...
