    Re: Collings MT vs Pava A

    Can you describe the differences in tonal qualities?

    I'm still new to knowing about mandolins, and have not yet mapped type of wood>tone very well.

    Re: New To Me - Flat Top Mandolin

    It looks very nice. I was wondering how it sounded, given the f-holes on a flat top. I'm also pretty used to seeing flat tops with oval holes.
