    Re: Mandocello question

    I think thatís the same length as the Northfield octaves. They sell string sets for those, might try that. But double check, it might be 22 1/2, I canít remember.

    Re: Mandolin tuning on a ukulele

    I’m confused by this list of strings, and I can’t find some of the sizes on juststrings. You have the D (.0318) thicker than the G (.028w)? I’m assuming that’s not a wound string, since it’s...

    Re: Vintage Gibson oval hole

    I have one of these as well - 72767 iirc. I think it might be early '23 depending on which number you like. But, same here - this is one of the nicest instruments I've ever heard, including some of...

    Re: Flatiron Performer 1995/1996 volume?

    I have a couple. They are surprisingly loud. One of the gents at Elderly called my first one “a little cannon”. I like them.

    Re: Carbon Fiber Mandolin

    I’m interested. I’ve been trying to build one of my own. It’s hard! I think a small neck A style would be great.

    I have a silverangel, just the low end one with no bindings and a redwood top. My other two are a ‘24 Gibson A-2 and an 82 Anderson F-5. They’re all different but the silverangel is a much, much...

    Re: Loar Tone "Sweet Spot"

    And many of the old Strads (which are about 350 years old I think) aren’t playable. There was just a big article on a recording project in Cremona to capture the remaining ones before they’re gone....

    Re: Tunefox

    Do you have plans to do standard notation? I like the app a lot but I don’t like tab. I like to see and think in notes.

    Re: short scale mandolin

    I have a travolin that I use for, well, traveling. (http://www.travolin.com). It’s really tiny. It’s a 13” scale and I think a 1”, maybe 1 1/8” nut. Easily the smallest mandolin I’ve ever seen. Not...

    Re: Travel / practice mandolin question

    I have one of these that I bought for that purpose but I’ve never found strings that will hold GDAE without breaking. Can I ask what you’re using?

    Re: Electric Viking Mandolin

    Can you share the details on the strings? I just bought one of the Northfield carved octaves. Would be fun to try to set up a regular one as an octave some time. Is that at 14” scale?
