    Re: Loar LM110A Mandolin Question

    Sensukai, did you get your mandolin setup to your liking? Not sure if anyone mentioned it but I bought a bag of rubber grommets on "the bay" and have them on my mandolins. They pop in between each...
  2. Re: Tip: Replacing Book Bindings with Spiral Bindings

    Been doing this for years - Buy used from amazon then take it to the office store to make spiral. Then put it on a shelf and forget it's there!
  3. Re: Was the mandolin played in traditional folk before Bill Monro

    I can imagine a mandolin providing counter melody to the fiddle or perhaps arpeggios. BUT that is from my "modern ear" perspective, I've never done must OT Folk.
  4. Re: Just downloaded Rob Meldrum's free Mandolin set-up book

    True, I got a Loar LM310f from the same place and the setup was very good. Over time I did a little tweeking but trying different strings often requires that.
  5. Re: Just downloaded Rob Meldrum's free Mandolin set-up book

    Ditto! The info helped me turn a barely playable Rogue A into a enjoyably playable and usable instrument.
  6. Re: Confirmed: Correct Tone-Gard size for “The Loar” LM-310F

    Thanks for the update, John. I have one of those and the HSC from the Mandolin Store and am very pleased with how it plays.

    Re: One more banjo question

    I play 4 string tenor (DGBE) and I put a couple of foam squares between the strings between the bridge and tailpiece. That really killed the weird ringies. I also use a block of foam in the back...
  8. Re: Straight Up Strings by Siminoff - any thoughts or experiences

    Well, the thread got me to look! What they describe does make sense but the strings I like at the moment are DR Dragon Skins (10-36). Last a long time and the tone works of both my low-end Loars...

    Re: Finger Ease

    I have used FE sparingly for decades. first on guitar, then bass, now mandolin. What it does for me is lessen the dreaded "SQUEEK!" and lower the resistance sliding my fingers over the strings. May...

    Re: Rogue RM-100A A-Style Mandolin

    I have one in black that I added to a MF order just to use a coupon so I paid even less than $49! Anyway it is currently setup with DR 12's and downtuned a whole step. I ended up with something a...
  12. Re: If you have Scroll Envy and $299.00 this has your name on it

    I got one from The Mandolin Store with HSC. Use it on stage for a couple of tunes.

    Wanted an f style that "looked" vintage and it has fit my needs well. Check out this thread...

  13. Re: Newbie here, suffering from analysis paralysis

    One other thing if not mentioned above. If your budget is $500 then that will have to pay for the instrument plus the case and possibly shipping/tax.

    Online dealers often will setup the mandolin...

    Re: pointless pick

    Out of sheer curiosity I ordered the sample pack from pointlesspicks. They came fast and in three thicknesses. I have not spent much time with them but they sure feel odd! I did like them for bass...

    Re: What makes Chop?

    Not that I'm a grasser, I can comment as a musician. Trad Bluegrass groups have no percussionist so the mando chop on top of the indistinct (vague) upright bass downbeat musically fills the place of...

    Re: Mandolin without marks on the neck

    For my Rogue I wanted side dots so I went to a big craft store and found a sheet of very thin plastic and a 1/8" hole punch. I think it cost about $6. I stuck the dots on at the usual frets then...

    Re: Mandolins on airplanes

    Another reason I bought a Rogue and cheap HSC - $98.00 less coupon because of other stuff I was buying. Then several sessions using Rob's fine setup ebook! Currently tuned ebf#c# using DR 12's.
