Subject: RE: Changing the tone of my mandolin
Yes - you may be judging the sound of your mandolin by what you've heard on recordings. And some of those musicians pay huge amounts of money to get that "chunk" sound. Many of the professional grades of mandolins you're hearing may sell in the range of 3,000 to 24,000 dollars{US}. And some of the prized Lloyd Loars can sell in the 100,000 to 200,000 dollar range.
