Default Calhoun Mandolin Ordered

Hope I'm getting what I wanted tone-wise. Being away from mandolin for too many years I got an Eastman 305 model I think about 6 years ago. Too loud and bright for my liking so I sold it and feverishly got a Pava A style and it was much mellower in tone. Always selling to buy, I sold it a few years ago and have been really missing the mandolin

I'm not a one genre player so folk, traditional, old country, blues, jazzy and a little bluegrass not played in a die-hard bluegrass style I just ordered the Wide Nut Calhoun and hoping it has the mellower more woody tone I'm after. I'm a home player now so loud volume means nothing to me, we'll see. Called store this morning and they thinking shipment should arrive Saturday since I'm only about 300 miles away.

I'm hoping you get the tone you want to hear!
