Yes, it's a Stroh Violin and it sounds cool, but not nice. He also plays the "Horse Head Violin" (don't know if there's a specific name for it in English)from Mongolia.

I was thinking of incorporating some other duck or dried potato elements but I've been watching the builders spar over virzis in the builders section and since Dan is a virzi (wienzi at least) believer this seemed more appropriate.

The Caption....

The attachment of virzis to both the upper and lower plates has had a valuable increase in tone of various sorts with only a slight loss in volume. Creepiness, however, has taken on a big gain.

I free associate too much... I read Banjo of Damocles and dropped the classics in favor of Rocky Horror Picture Show. I bet you and your son are occasionally hard to live with, aren't we all, but having a father and son playing music in the house together is a very good thing. I hope my kids and I will share moments like that when they are grown too.

It is real. That guy has even two of that kind he built himself, i.e. he bought the single instruments and "customized" them together. The mandolin part is loud enough to be heard above the din, so it seems to be working somehow.

Somebody brought a saxophone once - does that count?

The sessions I regularly go to are monthly:
- in Wuppertal (Domhan) 2nd Saturday
- in Herne (Sonne) 2nd Sunday
- in Witten (Finnegan's) last Thursday

all starting 8pm respectively. Additional ones are springing up spontaneously sometimes.

And David M.; that is a seriously long pheasant tail feather

Hey, gutbucket. #It's in Muscatine, Iowa. #A patio at Pearl Plaza downtown. #I'm facing the Mississippi River and just to the audience's backs is a good restaurant called The Button Factory.
Okay.
Thats where they use to make pearl buttons years ago from river clams. It looked familiar.

And David M.; that is a seriously long pheasant tail feather
down by your cases. You must have come out here to Kansas to get one that long. And not all shot up too. The fly tiers down in Arkansas give a dollar apiece, then charge $4.
Anyway, just curious

Msnyder: good eyes. There's a pheasant and a turkey feather in that fiddle case. along w/some other autographs, notes, etc. Think I may have shot that one, but can't remember. I have buddies who give them to me. I tie flies w/them and put them around here and there as you can tell.

Yeah, they used to make buttons here from the freshwater pearls in the Ms River. at one time they were cranking out more buttons than anywhere in the world. Millions per day. amazing. Still lots of button blanks and shells w/holes in them if you look around when someone digs dirt.

I'm kinda thinking that bright red is not Doyle's best color.

Pete, I watch a fair amount of TLC and What Not To Wear, etc. with my wife, what, do you think, would be a good color for Doyle's jacket with all that stuff on it? The man is making a statement! http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif It's workin for me. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/blues.gif

DC, Tell us about your bridge; is it one-piece and what material? Also how do you like the Orrico tailpiece?

Hi Ken, That's one of Red Henry's one piece maple bridges. I liked it but it was not fitting quite right so I've since put my Steve Smith bridge back on. It did make some difference in the sound, but I'm not sure it was enough to fool with it. Some folks swear by them. I think if you look in the archives you'll find a lot of discussion on them. As to the Orrico, I like the way it looks and maybe helps the sound a little bit, but it is not an easy chore to put a set of strings on...

The draw of this pic isn't the mandolin (Tacoma M1E used for a travel instrument), or (obviously!) the player ... :-)

Taken 7/16/2008 @ Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center, Olympic National Park, near Port Angeles, WA.

Thinking this one will be the cover pic on my first solo album LOL.

G'DAE, was that pic taken at Blueberry&gt; I believe that I was there at Grisman's table waiting to speak to him #which I did right after that was taken. That's Don Rigsby to Grisman's right.
