    Re: F Mandolin gig bag

    Look at Access gig bags. They come in a few 'stages' based on level of protection, features and of course, price. I have a Stage One and. Stage Three, although the Three is actually a Uke bag.

    Debating what to order? Here are my three Mel Bay favorites (no particular order). These get a lot of play whether at home for my amusement, or playing out with my duo partner.

    Re: Just an observation

    Mel Bay has offered various discount levels on and off for some time. I watch for their 25% or 30% sales and then buy. Whether or not it is a gimmic is irrelevant to me. I like the low prices and...

    Re: Your Mandolin Your Beer

    Given my business (small farm winery), I'd better be. But I enjoy beer as well. There's room for it all.

    Re: Your Mandolin Your Beer

    Just this evening on my back porch; my piccolo flat-top, one of Nigel Gatherer's Scottish music books, two of my cats listening, and a Mexican Modello. What could be better?

    Re: 18" scale length-Help with options

    Hi Brian,

    I have a custom-made 18.5" scale-length arch-top Weber. The top plate is mandola-size and the sides (ribs) are OM depth. It works very well as an OM (GDAE) or as a mandola (CGDA). I...

    Hi Tim,

    The mandolin in the Vivaldi seems to be a piccolo. The mandolin played solo could be a piccolo or not, I'd have to know the scale length, but the body seems too small. It probably was...

    Henry and Gracie are beautiful, and obviously quite smart. They know where the best sunny spots for sleeping are located. I have a Gracie, too, but my avatar is Robyn. Robyn loves mandolin music.

    Hi Sue,

    They are pretty rare. They are, however, a lot of fun to play. They have a really pleasing voice which is different between the arch top and flat top varieties, just as it is in other...

    I would go the same route. I wouldn't put that one back on, and a full-contact Cumberland would be my first choice. Please let us know what you think of it.

    As promised, here are a few MP3 files so you can see how the prototype flat-top piccolo sounds. Nothing too artful, but clips that give a sense of the piccolo at different places in its range. Here...
