  1. Re: Charlie Daniels, fiddle (and mandolin) player dead at 83.

    RIP Charlie, thank you for your music. I saw him several times, he was a hard working musician and put on a great show.

    Re: Stringwinder's for mando

    I've never tried that string winder, but it looks pretty cool. I finally broke down and bought a Frank's Crank for my mandolin last week, and man, what a joy that is to use!

    But the winder you...

    Re: Advise on a Webcam

    Hi Jim,
    Take a look at Mandolessons.com, it's a great site with lots of free lessons. He's got a whole section that talks about what equipment he uses (both currently and in the past), you can find...

    Re: Question about customising a mandolin

    Feel free to customize your mandolin to suit your needs and tastes. In theory, paint does affect how the sound is transmitted through the wood, but in real life, I doubt if you could hear the...

    I am saddened by this news. The world was a better place with the show.

    Re: New Mandolin Day!

    If it sounds half as good as it looks, you should be very happy.

    Congrats!
  8. Re: Mandolin Recommendations - Beginner to Intermediate

    What mandolin to buy? That is the question we all have to answer; from the very beginner who has never even held a mandolin, to those of us with years of experience wanting to upgrade to the next...

    Re: Introduction and my new to me Gibson Fern

    Congratulations on your mandolin acquisition! There are many on this board that feel the new crop of Gibson mandolins produced under the eye of Dave Harvey are among the best that Gibson has made...
  10. Re: Buying my first Mandolin- Equipment questions

    Correction:

    I had the wrong link for string cutters above, this is actually the correct ones for cutting strings.

    They're close, but the string cutters are a bit beefier than the wire cutters.
  11. Re: Buying my first Mandolin- Equipment questions

    That's a good question - what else do I need when I get a mandolin? I think a headstock tuner is a must have item, but there are plenty of other options out there. I like the one in the link because...

    Re: Am I being to Critical on New Mandolin

    Personally, if it sounded ok and played ok, I wouldn't worry about the minor imperfections in the wood. If you look hard enough, almost all mandolins have something that's not perfect.

    But... if...

    Re: Newbie: Which electric-acoustic to buy?

    I completely agree with Jeff.

    If you want your recordings to sound like you're playing a mandolin, then get the best acoustic you can afford and mic it. If you look at professional mandolin...

  16. Re: Reading mandolin music score by NOT using TABS

    Another vote for TablEdit. If you don't know how to read standard notation, it's a great way to learn. You can pick an easy tune you know, and slow it way down. There's also practice exercises in...

    Re: Strap Recommendation

    Another vote for Lakota. I've found both the product and support to be top quality. I like the fact that I get a great product and the money spent actually helps the tribe.

    I found a long lost Blue Chip pick behind the stove when we pulled it out for a repair. I am extremely careful to always put my practice pick in a little tray on my desk. The only way I can imagine...

    Re: One Mandolin - forever...

    I dunno, on one hand we certainly can get emotionally attached to an instrument. The sound is a huge part, but there's also the feel of it, the smell of the case when we open it, the memories stored...

    Re: Waverly Tuners?

    I have Waverly tuners on both of my F mandos, and they are nice tuners. Can't say they are X times better than other brands, but I don't regret buying them. I have a set of Rubners on my oval, and...

    Re: Help with evaluation

    To my eyes, the crack doesn't look to bad. It probably won't affect the sound, and doesn't look like it would get worse on it's own. The pickup is OK, but only worth something if you plan to use it

    Such a great problem to have. All of these are all what I would consider to be " very fine" instruments, and all are certainly capable of making great music. Ultimately you can't really go wrong with...

    Hard to tell by the pictures, but I think you have a reasonable expectation going in concerning the overall quality of these. The only thing I would add is that the tuners on the Portuguese style...
  25. Re: **Josh Pinkham, Red Diamond Mandolins, and D'addario Picks**

    I think I was mistaken, the Red Diamond mandolin at Morgan Music is still for sale, i think I got that one mixed up with the one at Music Emporium. I think I'd be happy with either one. :mandosmiley:
