Thread Name: Mandolin Mudcatters survey
Subject: RE: Mandolin Mudcatters survey
Hi! Congratulations on the Brentrup, he really knows his stuff. As the name suggests, I'm mostly a mandolin player these days, though I started out as a 'strictly rhythm' guitar player. I think I play in a band called 'Bit on the Side'(things are a bit sticky at the moment), who can be heard at http://www.myspace.com/bit_on_the_side .
My main mandolin is a Rigel A+ deluxe Custom. I also have a decent F5 copy, a weird stratocaster shaped acoustic flatback by David Freshwater, a resonator mandolin shaped like a National Guitar by Stuart Wailing, a couple of mandolins I made myself, a cheap Octave Mandolin and a killer Rob Armstrong mandocello made from Brazilian Rosewood and Cedar.
Mandolin Cafe is a good place, and it's also worth joining the co-mando discussion list (you can join via the Cafe, but don't forget the hyphen in the name, or you end up in a Spanish porn site...)
