Subject: RE: Tech: Mandolin-Oval vs. F-hole?
Thanks for the update, Dick. I hope you find just the tone you want. I will say that of all the varied instruments Hardi plays, it seems to me that his mandolin sounds the most different to the one playing it as comapred to how it sounds to the listener. He hears his as sweet. It IS sweet, but from across a large room I also feel an assaultive POP or PING. ??? Whatever! :~) He loves it, and that's what matters.
