  1. Re: Eastman 305 vs Kentucky KM 250, improver reviews

    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...

    Re: Northfield M, a Step Up From My KM-900?

    Well if you figure price plays into the tone quality-why ask the question? if not well then.......... I have a KM950; Ive had much more expensive mandos, but I think the bang for the buck can't be...
  3. Re: Decided to expand from just guitar to mandolin

    Unless I missed it the OP is still in the market. I just perused the classifieds and noted there are three Morris's for sale by Howard (Sonny). 2 carved topped oval holes and one flat top. I've...

    Re: New Player - Kentucky KM-150 vs KM-250?

    Seeing as how you (I think-Acoustic Guitar Forum) helped me out on my GS mini, I'll do my best here. Either of the two will serve you well to start out. A set up is way more critical on the...

    Re: Vpicks ordering?

    Hmmm, used your link and was able to put a pick in my cart and check out (didn't as I'm not a big fan). Have bought a few on line from their web site before too. Not sure what to say????
  6. Re: Central Oregon - I need to try a Weber Yellowstone

    I'd like to help out, but the only Weber I've seen locally at jams and sessions (when we had them) was a Bitteroot A. Have never seen a Yellowstone in the High Desert. A trip to Albany (2+ hours)...

    Re: Is this how it starts?

    Is that a Bb? I toyed with buying one of those-played in the fourth grade for a bit-geez that was 66 years ago. Glad I went with the Anglo concertina instead. The clarinet was not my cup of...

    Re: Wegen vs. Primetone vs. Clown Barf

    I guess I'll weigh in. I typically use a rounded pick. I'll grant that a more pointed pick will get you a brighter, louder sound, but I just cannot do any form of tremolo with one. On the Muddies...

    Re: Greetings, new mando player

    Welcome to the Cafe! Play it anyway you want. It's all about having fun. Who cares what others think.....
  10. Re: Playability of a new Eastman 305 question

    A couple of non intelligent observations. 1) 12 string guitar vs mandolin string tension is way different with the mando being higher (tension) so harder to fret until you get used to it. 2) I...

  15. Re: Emotional hearing, and changing out my 7-year old strings...

    Hmm, interesting. Personally I hate changing strings-period. Mandolin, guitar, dobro, uke-doesn't matter; I just don't like doing it. So, usually my strings are way past due for changing and I...

    Re: Help! Drowned out by fiddles!

    I used to take a mandolin to the local "slow session". Slow? Not really. Anyway there are (used to be when we were still able to have the session) at least 4-5 fiddle players there. I gave...

    Re: Where’s the easy-does-it method?

    I feel the OP's "pain". I started and stopped playing mandolin about 3 times before it "took". I had played guitar about 12-14 years prior. I didn't have the problem with left (fretting) hand...
