    Default Andrew Marlin and Tommy Edwards

    This was 34 minutes well spent and I thought other folks might enjoy it if you haven't seen it already. Great harmonies, great picking by both gentlemen and it was cool to hear Andrew picking a few Bill Monroe tunes.

    Thanks, Evan - hadn't heard this one.

    I can always count on Andrew to expand my library of songs. 'Have a feast here tonight' and 'Love letters tied in blue' will be added to the list.

    I do so wish that he and Emily would put together an album (preferably a double) of BG and OT tunes. They really do them justice.

    Can't say that the A4 is my favorite of Andrew's instruments, but it still sounds good in his hands.

    I think that A4 has really inspired him and I do like that old time tubby tone... but I would have loved to see him with his Loar sitting in front Big Mon's old crib!

    I'm guessing someone will chime in with a better educated response, but seeing no headstock decal and seeing the detail, I might guess it's a Pre-war Guitars Herringbone

    Heh. "Tubby"... I like that descriptor...

    A little tubby-ness is ok. Lends some color to the woody-ness. But for me, that one (and oval's, in general) is too tubby. I like the more focused sound of the f-hole design. It's almost like the instrument has a hard time keeping up with him when they are playing Big Mon.

    Still, Andrew is one of those folks who could be whacking a fan belt with a stick and it would probably sound great.

    For the record, it's a 1921 A2. Ovals are perfect in this kind of duo setting IMHO. Definitely a different tone than the Loar. And he pushes it to the limits on a few tunes. They all sound great in Andrew's hands!

    Andrew Marlin single handedly made oval hole mandolins cool again. Love this video.
