Thread Name: help? Entry Level mandolin
Subject: RE: help? Entry Level mandolin
Greg saw an A-style Kentucky at Yale's in Sayre today, color black, similar bright tone to the one we have, for maybe $225. New or used, I dunno. Also another $199-ish A-style (dunno maker) and a F in stock, no further info. Yale's has a long and good rep as supporting all acoustic music, and bluegrass in particular. Owner Dave Yale is a gigging BG band member and repair/setup guy Mark Orshaw is too, from a long family line of musicians. I'd call 'em up and ask 'em to play these over the phone to get an idea of basic tone, and then maybe make the trip to check them out. These are good guys-- you can always say hello from me-- I'm the lady they fronted gas money to (to get home from their shop) several years ago! :~)
