    Re: Marketing and getting your name/brand out.

    Hello Todda,

    Some may say the experience I am about to recount to you is totally irrelevant. If you believe that to be the case, skip it entirely. I, however, believe there are some similarities...
  2. Re: Your thoughts on Ellis A4s and other modern, upper tier ovals

    Hi Mike,

    Have you considered Mike Black's mandolins? He builds in the style of the old Gibsons, but obviously new and built as you want it. His instruments are beautiful to look at, to play and...

    Re: Stolen guitar bouzouki found

    Congratulations Nigel, I'm really glad to hear you got this beauty back. I hope there were some clues in the discovery of this one that will lead to the return of others as well.

    Re: tone woods for Octave Mandolin

    I would only have an instrument built by a Luthier I trust. If I trust that person enough to have her/him build me an instrument, I'd also trust that professional to guide me in tone wood selection....

    Re: Should I be insulted?

    Little known groundhog fact; they really like wine, too. So they like music and wine, hmmmm, maybe I am actually a groundhog in disguise.

    Re: Should I be insulted?

    I had a good chuckle from your various dogs' reactions. Why do I find it reassuring that your Pit Bull Chubby relaxed with Punk? Somehow that seems exactly as it should be.

    We really won't see...

    Re: New Mandolin case, a perfect fit

    Nice mandolin and a good case. You are off to a good start. I think that is a particularly attractive case, too. Best wishes!

    In addition to the positive reaction of my cats, I thought I'd mention my dog experience, too. My wife and I don't have any dogs; we are devoted cat people. But my duo partner (guitar/classical...

    Then I guess I'm really lucky he likes it! He is pretty big but to be honest, he's more hair than cat.

    Re: Should I be insulted?

    Depends on the cat. I have a couple of cats who are really into it. I have shown this older photo on the Cafe before, but it is typical of Robyn's behavior. He loves to listen to me play my...

    Re: Lightweight Octave Mandolin Cases

    +1 on the Access gig bags. I have an Access Stage 1 for one of my instruments and an Access Stage 3 for another. Big difference between the two, but I like both for their individual purposes. The...

    Re: Vintage Gibson oval hole

    Hi Jeff,

    A good story, well told. I like the way we can develop history with our instruments just as we do with friends. I wish you many more years of joy from it. Oh, and with instruments of...

    Re: Solo builders

    I would definitely look at the instruments of Oliver Apitius. The Club Jazz catches my eye and ear but it all depends on personal taste and genre.

    I also wouldn't necessarily feel the need to...

    Re: Chris Thile's Loars

    Just my opinion, but I liked his tone best back when he was playing his Dudenbostel. That was a sweet instrument.

    Don't work too hard at getting used to it, Mike. This whole inter-whatever thing is just a passing fad. It'll never catch on. ;)

    Re: is an arm rest a benefit to technique ?

    I agree with Mark that an arm rest is not essential, but I think they can help in a few ways. They can help keep you from dampening the sound of the mandolin by keeping your arm off the top. They...

    I had a Weber Custom Vintage A with the 'old wood'. Loved it, sold it, wish I hadn't, to be honest. I really should have kept it.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Mike. Looks like it's only the Engelmann they are closing out on. Good to know.
