Mandolinists are just as obsessive. Maybe it's the inbreeding. (Being one, I can make jokes about it.)
I was maybe more obsessed when I used to...
Old used stuff can be fun and pretty cheap. I still miss my Kawai K5 and Ensoniq Mirage.
I always feel I have to ask this because over half the time, there's a catch that wouldn't have been disclosed without asking.
The Hummingbirds - 80s Australian jangle-pop
Milkman Half-and-Half - tube preamp, 300W Class D power
I just offered less than 10% off a "make offer" for something that had been sitting around for most of a year and was rejected as a low baller. :)
I love Bump of Chicken! Their whole Flame Vein album is a favorite of mine.
My Gretsch-o-caster: hollow mahogany body, TV Jones Classics, Bigsby, solid rosewood neck
This was a few years ago, but it was a combination of

I didn't like it when I tried it, but YMMV. I did really like the discontinued Fender Jazzmaster Ultralight solid-state amp though.

Definitely Echos Myron by Guided By Voices

The Zoom equivalent 5370 16 x 4 is $70 on Amazon which is what I paid for my 8 x 4 a few years ago. I just don't like/trust Arris very much.
He's almost on the level of George Jones compared with today's country performers.
What I've found most interesting here is learning to think of Lexicon reverb not as a "thing" but as a very elaborate programming toolkit for...
Depends on the guitar - electrics around $3K but probably double+ for the right classical guitar.
I have a Rigel G110 which looks a lot like a little Strat even though it's an excellent acoustic mandolin. It was a custom instrument sold at a...
