I sleep on that thing a lot... and your words are marked. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif I am considering a little voodoo, tonegard, and possibly one of those weber armrests; I really don't want to have to get another mandolin. Well, save for some sort of f-4 style... and maybe a hollowbody electric 4 stringer, but just having one mandolin over my entire playing years would be honorable I think.



Oh... and a mandola for Bach's cello suites and such. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

One mando for playing is definitely a very good thing.
Sounds a bit stupid but I think You kind of get used to and play 'each other' in if that makes any sense..
This 'mandovoodo' thing seems to be very popular but beyond a decent set up on the nut/bridge/neck what happens? I'm not knocking it, just extremely curious. I might try asking on the builders forum. I'm in England so I couldn't get it done anyway but if I knew there secret methods.....(rubs hands together in a sinister fashion)
Whats with the Manchester united shirt by the way??

tater71
Jan-17-2007, 11:56am
The mandovoodoo thing is "acoustic blueprinting" or something. He tailors the braces and such, just trimming them for optimum sound. It may be worthless, but I think it would be worth a try anyway.

Oh.. and I am a fan of the Premier Legaue.

Jason Kessler
Jan-17-2007, 12:36pm
Steve's been pretty forthcoming about the MandoVoodoo process. As I understand it, there's very little brace shaving involvled. Rather, it's basically a good set-up job (worth the money right there), with a vigorous shaking or squeezing technique he learned from his work with violins.

THat's cool. My daughter's kindergarten class has special 'letter' days, too. Since her name begins with L, she got to bring in special "L" things, and I don't have a Lute.

I might find out when they have "M" week and bring the mando in!

BTW, the "M" chord is very similar in form and sound to a "C" isn't it? http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Harrmob
Jan-26-2007, 1:30pm
That M chord is actually a G chord, but it did'nt really matter. I think fingernails prevented them from actually pushing down.

Jan-27-2007, 11:27am
My bad. The guitarist IS holding a G obviously. I guess I just looked at the girl in the orange sweater on 'my' left, adn her fingers seem planted in the middle of the neck.....

Thats SINISTER man!

Dave Caulkins
Feb-01-2007, 8:43pm
The Flatiron is a A5-2 (pre-Artist, same specs) from 1984 (Carlson signed). It's been in our stable of instruments since 1991, a long time before I played mandolin (my wife used to play, she moved to bass when she attended music school). They are great mandolins, I can see why you'd miss it. This one is going nowhere, which gives it a rare position in my house (I've traded too many beautiful instruments, some I really regret - my Vega 205 Cylinderback, a Rickenbacker 360 Custom and a 1976 Martin D-18 to name the big 'uns).

And yes, I am sometimes sinister... Bwahahahahaha!

I also have an A5-2, one of the first in 1983. I bought it from Mandolin Brothers new. It was my backup since my A2 snakehead needed some fretwork. The Flatiron became my main band instrument since I could hear what I was playing without a monitor. Great instrument.

I think the only difference between that and the A5 Artist is that the hardware on the A5 Artist is gold-plated.

If you just flipped the bridge than your intonation must be off. the offsets will be the same either way. You need a true lefty bridge with the e and a offsets towards the head and the d and g towards the tail. just my 2 cents, been there...done that. YMMV got a pic of the bridge? http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Jerry Byers
Feb-02-2007, 2:16pm
I wasn't going to say anything, but since the cat is out.

If it is a Collings, then the bridge is backwards and the intonation would be off. Collings doesn't use a symmetrical bridge.

If it is a Collings, then the bridge is backwards and the intonation would be off. Collings doesn't use a symmetrical bridge.
It's a pet peeve of mine since I learned the hard way. "Most" Pac-Rim lefty mandolins come with a righty bridge and nut. Something you have to know ahead of time and ask the dealers to replace or you can be like me and pay somebody later to replace them. #http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif #On the other hand, both my Eastmans came with correct lefty hardware. I also believe I think the MK's are now correct but they weren't at the time I bought my first mando. I also had a Morgan Monroe that needed replacements.
BTW, it doesn't matter if they are symetrical across the offsets. You still would have the offsets pointing in the wrong direction for the string they are on. The only bridge that can be flipped would be a straight bridge that might be slotted for the guage of the strings. As always, just my 2 cents, YMMV. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Hey Bloomer, name the time and place! Then we can get a picture of BOTH of us and our mandos and post it!

My mando sounds SO much better since I got it set up properly (until I start playing it, anyway! lol) I think I'm going to steal the guy's signature that says, "Just because I can't play them doesn't mean I shouldn't own them!" lol Makes me smile every time I read it.

Tony Sutherland made it Mike Mandrell. The banjer player, Charlie Jones, bought it from Mike. It has a carved top and back. The sides and back are koa. The top was cut from a log they found dropped across a small ravine. They counted the annual rings and the tree was over 300 years old. There's a much better picture of this instrument in the eye candy section of the cafe.

here's some pics i took of Adam Steffey's visit to my bluegrass seminar class at ETSU today.

he talked and fielded questions for a little over an hour. just a great guy, went out of his way to talk to everyone. you would never know by hearing him talk that he is one today's best players, no ego at all and he's seems really down to earth. (sorry about the fuzzy pic, the lighting wasn't very cooperative)

how did you like the Daley?
that thing was awesome. it's got a satin finish that reminds me of my F2's. the neck was nice, a little v, but not too much and the finish was left off. playabilty was excellent, his action was a little higher than i though it would be but it had the bigger fret.

great tone- it had that really hollow, kinda woody tone to it, which i like very much. it had plenty of volume, but wasn't brash sounding or jangly. just a really nice mandolin, i can see why he bought it.

and it has one of the best scrolls i've seen.

Man, this thread is getting dangerously close to 100 pages!

Had a really fun jam session last weekend. Our good friend Rolf Johaneson (seated left) has been going through some tough times and we thought a little bluegrass would help him out. This was a really fun jam for me as I got to play some "traditional" bluegrass with some fantastic players.

Left to right - Me (and the Collings MF-5), Sharon Messina on bass (she used to play with the great NW bluegrass band called Crossfire), Gary Olson on guitar (this guy knows more bluegrass songs than anyone I know), Steve Bickle on fiddle (he used to be in Crossfire and City Limits and he really cooks on fiddle) and Harley Bray on banjo (you know, The Bray Brothers).

Playing with Harley was quite an honor for me. As a mandolin player in bluegrass it's a blast to get to play with such a fine banjo player, like a great drummer in a rock band.

Bill, I can't believe you remember that old mando it's what, 5 years? old now. Luckily most houses up here are made of spruce, picea abies. My house was built in 1937, made from wood logged right at the site, and several rebuilding projects have left me with a lifetime supply of bracing material. That mando was made with spruce and maple pieces from the redecorating scrap bin; a truly home made project &lt;sorry about the lame pun http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif &gt;.

Hey Arnt, thats the WABI SABI attitude, right?

I'd much rather have an instrument made from salvaged wood with a story than kill a new tree.......

Arnt
Jun-15-2007, 2:44am
Martin, I usually buy my wood from tone wood vendors, so I am probably as guilty as the next guy for killing trees for instruments. I wish it was easier to obtain quality woods locally though, we have lots of wood up here but finding good pieces that are large enough for instruments is rare.

I had to go to Wikipedia to see what WABI SABI was all about. Here is what I found: "It (wabi-sabi) nurtures all that is authentic by acknowledging three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect." I guess that pretty much sums up my how I feel about my instruments, so in a way you are right! http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Hey, this thread is about posting pictures of yourself playing, right? I am not much a mandolin player, but I have played guitar for most of my life. Here is an old one from a crazy rockabilly band I was in; we had several of these projected on the wall behind the stage when we played. I'm "Dusty" in the picture, but these days I should probably be "Rusty"!

Are you talking about the Lakes BG Fest in Bemidji? If so, yes--we did it a couple years running. If you mean the MBOTMA fest they used to hold near Elk River (now moved SW of Saint Cloud), then that wasn't us. We just did that one for the first time last August.

Problem is, I don't remember being part of the same billing as The Wilders and the FPSLP's http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif
MBOTMA. That's the one. Sorry for the mixup but I was at that one about 5 years ago...too many brain cells died since then!

You're not a unix admin. You're not wearing suspenders (http://www.perturb.org/display/entry/462/)! http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

"There are no extant photographs of Moses parting the Red Sea with his staff, but as this photograph documents, we know he made several unsuccessful attempts with his mandolin.

Those are pretty funny. # I took that at Fort Flagler, WA. #Saw the bluff looking over Puget Sound and thought it would be a cool idea for a picture.

I'm not quite sure about drugs though http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif
