    Question Mid Missouri/Big Muddy Mini Mo.

    Been thinking of getting a mandolin for playing on my lunch break and dragging along to work. The Mini Mo seems like a good instrument for this purpose. Anyone here own one or ever played one?

    I don't have the Mini Mo but we do have the Kid-Mo. Not at all the same, but in case anyone stops by here thinking you are asking about the small mando, I want to say that it is pretty great. It's my grandson's, but I enjoy playing it, too. I have never played a MM/BM I didn't like.

    I have a Big Muddy, and it would be perfect for taking to work. I had Mike build one for me with a cedar top, over rosewood. I love it. Go for it!!

    I have a BM MW-Ow that I think is fantastic! Haven’t played a Mini but I don’t think you’d be disappointed in any of their mandolins.

    To my knowledge, he hasn't made the Kid-Mos in years. Looks like a MidMo but has a bolt-on neck and everything is smaller but not as small as the old Holdrio piccolo in my profile pic. I happened upon it, new, in a repair shop with lots of different stuff.

    I love the MidMo and Big Muddy mandolins, Caleb. I just wonder if you might want to get one of the full size flattops since the mini has the bolt on neck. Maybe you don't mind that fact, but I was giving my input thinking that you would get a space saving mandolin as it is with the flattop and the reduced concern when compared to your Collings that you wouldn't want to bring to work. Sounds like fun-- playing at lunch while at work! You will probably get a following.

    I recently bought an MM-8 Mini-Mo from Mike. I love playing it, and it's super easy to pack along in the small gig bag he sells for them.

    Good thoughts all. I don’t think I’d mind the bolt-on neck at all. I was mainly thinking of convenience, but the bolt-on issue is something to consider. It looks like I might be moving to a new area within my company, and a place to secure my mandolin during work hours might be available. If so I’ll just take along my Collings. Win/win.

    How nice to be near Carter's! Wow, I would go on vacation just to visit there, though I will have to wait until Mrs. B is able or willing to drive me across the country.

    If it’s done right a bolt on neck has no negatives. It makes a neck reset a trivial operation.
