    Re: Advice on purchasing my next mandolin(s)

    Allen nailed it. My Kelley A-5 is a bluegrass hoss and very adept at anything else I play…but my Rigel CT-100 excels at some things the Kelley doesn’t. And, for jazz, don’t forget about sold body...

    Re: Gibson and Hamlett Harmony!

    Y’all sounded great! Both mandolins have the sound, but the Hamlett is the clear winner to my ears. Just more complexity/depth of tone without getting muddy. As with my Kelley A5 it gives just a bit...
