If your mando is older, you may have SADDLE SAG...

by Mary Weber on Dec-11-2018 at 12:28pm

Having trouble getting your action just right? The G and E strings play great but you get a buzz on the D and A? You get rid of the buzz on the D and A strings and the G and E are hard to play?

The picture above shows what may be the reason. Over time the string tension works on the saddle on a traditional style bridge creating a bow with the D and A strings riding lower, sometimes significantly. Flat or radiused fingerboard, the problem created

Happy Ranger Owner, home on leave, wrote a nice review- Update

A little update as the first Cherry Ranger went out today- sounds fantastic! Just thought some might be interested in these woods that are a bit different.

Thanks, NP!

I love my Ranger! I upgraded to the walnut with radiused ebony fretboard. From the start I was blown away with how great it looked and sounded! You canít beat its size and portability as

Worthless For All But a String Holder

Custom Rangers

This one will travel to France, soon- upgraded with an ebony FB & Peghead Veneer (think it's radiused, too) and buckskin color.

This one is Vegan- which is pretty easy to achieve with the ebony star in the peghead and micarta nut- looks cool, too!

Bruce has been picking wood and planning with two players for their instruments (one a two point, one an F)...great visits!

Mando 118 Years Old

by Mary Weber on Jun-14-2018 at 12:09pm
Here's a nice (and interesting) letter we received from a repair.
Mandos can sure get around:

My Grandfather Peter E Anderson was listed on the 1900 census as living in an apartment in Kentucky with three other LDS missionaries. Before he left the mission field to come home, he bought his wife Clara a mandolin. My father gave the mandolin to Pamela when we were newlyweds because she was the only member of the extended family that owned and played a mandolin.
