Thread Name: Mandolin Mudcatters survey
Subject: RE: Mandolin Mudcatters survey
Is the mandolin your primary instrument or a sideline? Probably my best instrument but I play guitar more often.

Do you perform regularly with others/are you part of an organized group? Yes, very regularly/No

What type of music do you play? Irish, blues, swing and jazz.

What style would you LIKE to be playing? As above, but I'd like to add to my classical mandolin repertoire too.

What type/style/brand of mandolin do you own. Currently I own handbuilt G. Weigert mandolin and mandola by the same maker (my personal favourite instrument), and a handbuilt Docherty OM. Previously, I've owned a Eccleshall A.5 plus other handmade mandolin family instruments by Martin, John Roberts, John LeVoi and Paul Hathway.

Are you happy with your mandolin? I'm extremely happy with all my current instruments and don't foresee changing them. I also really like Tony Dixon's instruments.

Nice to have a thread about mandos!
