    Re: compared to a Weber mandolin.

    I would put them on par with Eastman and a step down from the Weber. I think you'll end up needing to put a little cash together with the Weber as the Gallatin line was pretty basic and a wide neck...
  6. Re: Fuzz / Distortion pedal recommendations?

    I've run my electrics through a Fulltone OCD & a Swollen Pickle by Way Huge but not the acoustics. I'm sure it would work fine if a little prone to feedback.

    Re: Eastman MDO305 Octave

    Though I didn't like the tuners, the MDO305 is a lot of bang for your buck. It's a lot of OM for a starter but I'm a gear snob and ended selling mine to fund a Weber.

    Re: Top Seam Repair on GBOM

    I have a Taylor 814 with a similar seam separation from low humidity. It's similarly repaired and, though I didn't keep it in my office anymore, it's been stable ever since. That said, the repair...

    Re: Comparison/impressions of Guitar Body OMs?

    I recently picked up a Pono MND-30HC & really dig the shorter scale. It has a slightly tighter feel vs the Northfield & a little brighter tone. I waffled between the Pono & Northfield offerings...

    Re: First Purchase Recommendation

    Make sure to leave a little room in the budget for a setup. You can also do it yourself, of course, and one of the Cafe members, Rob Meldrum, has a killer setup book that he'll email you of you send...

    Re: Northfield mandolins - USA or China made?

    Though I do think US made instruments can do better at resale than imports, I think that's just perception and more folks are coming to realize that. I love everything about my Big Mon. From the...

    Re: Describe your MAS progression

    I started out with a Kentucky KM-150 & then picked up a Loar LM-600. My first upgrade was a Weber Absaroka after selling the KM-150 & the LM-600. I also got two Weber mandolas, an oval & an F hole,...

    Re: Advice on purchasing my next mandolin(s)

    When I think of "jazz" mandolin, I think of hollow body electric. Maybe oval hole vs F holes but, even then, it's more of a different tone with jazz melodies/scales/rhythms rather than a correct...

    Re: Comparison/impressions of Guitar Body OMs?

    I have a Northfield flattop GBOM with Sitka & Walnut that I love. I like the 20" scale of my Weber OM but it doesn't have the resonance of the longer scale. I've never played a 21" scale for...
