Isn't it Time You Listened to Bach on Mandolin?

by Scott Tichenor on May-18-2015 at 9:29am
The music of the "old master" as some affectionately refer to him - Johann Sebastian Bach - has received a lot of well deserved attention of late from the mandolin world. Sure, we've played and recorded his music for years, but it's hard to ignore three important Bach projects in the past 18 months by some pretty big names. Like Thile, Marshall, Avital, Lichtenberg. I suspect many of you have not heard a note from a single one of these. Many of you have though, and a few of you probably

Mike Marshall and Caterina J.S. Bach Recording

by Scott Tichenor on Mar-08-2015 at 9:58am
We're privileged to be the first outside of the production team to receive any information about the new Mike Marshall and Caterina Lichtenberg J.S. Bach duo recording coming in April. This is sure to be one of the highlights of the year in what is already a very strong one for classical mandolin.

Since there's not enough information to share via a news release we're parking what we have in our blog.

The tracks:

Contestant #3: "I'll take Internet Forums for $200, Alex."

Alex Trebek: "ToneRite, Blue Chip Picks and Gibson's 120th Anniversary F5 mandolin."

Contestant #3: "Name three products garnering publicity and benefiting beyond their wildest dreams on the Mandolin Cafe forum."

Alex Trebek: "That's correct! Please continue"

I've been wanting to say this for a long time. It's clear strong negative opinions

New Packaging/SKU for D'Addario J-74 Mandolin Strings

by Scott Tichenor on Oct-25-2014 at 11:15am
D'Addario has updated their iconic J-74 mandolin string packaging and SKU (stock keeping unit). While this isn't earth shattering news, in light of the fact that this is probably the most widely used mandolin set in use in the United States and possibly other countries (our opinion, not backed by any statistics) we thought it worth sharing.

This point forward you'll see these referred to as D'Addario EJ-74 strings. Nothing else has changed according to our sources and we've reached
