    Re: Kentucky Brand Mandolins-opinion

    I own an older Kentucky KM-805 I got in trade for a guitar that didn't fit me. It "plays above it's weight," but it doesn't measure up to my 3 main mandolins. Its benefit for me is it's my only...

    Re: Gratitude

    I agree that no mandolin that I own will ever hold me back from progressing in my mandolin journey. I am grateful for what I have, and very much enjoy them. I occasionally suffer bouts of MAS, but my...
  3. Re: Small hands and neck width - instruments that fit/don't

    I too have small hands and very short fingers, and can play both C- and V- neck mandolins with comfort. I have to alter fingerings with some chords, because I just can't reach, although picking is...

    Re: Too Cold to Ship Your Instrument

    I agree, some things are just not worth the risk. I work too hard for my money to risk damaging an instrument due to impatience.

    Re: An honest-to-goodness VULCAN HARP!

    Actually, pon farr only occurs once every 7 years. Gives them something to look forward to (Star Trek fan since the 1960s.)
  6. Re: I decided to hang it on the wall: it might be safer there

    You are correct - I too would be willing to take it for safekeeping, but you got the first offer in, so you do it and make the sacrifice for all of the rest of us.

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    Is the $1450 for all 3 instruments? If so, only a little overpriced.

    Re: Vorhees Bowlback- very interesting

    "Probably needs to be restrung" - REALLY?!? But it's got really interesting ornamentation, and I like it, just not the price.
  9. Re: What Sensation Should You Feel for "The One?"

    What he said. I got that feeling from my Pava and my Weber, and I decided I needed to try a Collings. I finally found one I could afford, paid for it, and when it arrived, it gave me the same feeling...

    Re: Your first great mandolin

    My The Loar LM220 was my starter mandolin, still have it, it wasn't terrible but it wasn't what I wanted either. Called TMS (NFI) and told them I was interested in a Pava Player F-hole or a Weber...

    Re: New player - Mandolin

    As for picks, I too came to mandolin from guitar (acoustic/folk,) and started with my guitar picks. I find many people recommend thicker picks for mandolin than I care for. I prefer less than 1mm...

    Re: Anyone been to Nashville trying mandolins?

    I don't know if all the stores are willing, but TMS did (for me) play two mandolins that I was interested in on the phone so I could hear them back-to back (I ended up buying both because I couldn't...

    Re: Ever just love the sound of your mandolin?

    I love the sound of my mandolins every time I play them. That's why i have them! They all sound wonderful in different ways, that's why I have more than one. Now if I could only play up to the...
