    Re: Petersen Octave Mandolin

    All four of those match the gauges of the EJ80 set, so there you go!

    Re: ArtistWorks discount - What do you think?

    Me, too. I was expecting an interesting and somewhat lengthy thread during the first few weeks after the class opened, but I've noticed nothing.

    Looking at the curriculum list, I think that there...
  3. Re: String Gauges For Cittern, changing Unisons to Octaves

    To get an idea of the diameter ratios of octave pairs of strings, I looked at a standard set of strings (Daddario's EJ38) for a 12-string guitar. It seems like as the courses get lower, the ratio...

    No matter how many agree about that, it only takes one person with desire and funds to prove that the price is right.
  5. Re: String Gauges For Cittern, changing Unisons to Octaves

    Id start by asking Nigel.

    In the meantime, some of the bouzouki players here who use octave pairs could give you recommendations for the G and D strings. Scale length will be a consideration,...

    Re: Frank Wakefield

    I got the teal album when it came out in 1972, after I saw Wakefield interviewed on David Frost's show, and I still play it a few times a year. His back-up band on that album included Tony Trischka...

    Re: Zimnicki in classified info

    It’s quite a striking instrument, and it’s at a really nice price point for a 10-string, let alone one with electronics. My main concern would be about the tone of the C string, since Elderly says...

    Re: Amazing Nugget F5 at Carter's!

    Three weeks later, all three are still listed on Carter’s website. If any of those stunning mandolins were underpriced, I would expect them to be gone by now.

    Re: Trip To Dusty Strings Today

    I wasn’t!!! It sounded great at full force and with a delicate touch, perfectly balanced from the low strings to the high ones. I had never played a cittern with octave courses before, which I...

    John Reischman recorded a couple of tunes on mandola for his Walk Along John album a few years ago. I think he uses a mandola built by Stan Miller, but I'm not positive about that.

    I'm guessing that before the pandemic, there was a pretty established and consistent equilibrium between supply and demand. The companies and the luthiers knew about how many mandolins they could...

  21. Re: Learning octave mandolin before regular mandolin

    I agree, although I'd call them "overlapping" applications. You can play bluegrass on an OM, but it's easier on a mandolin. You can play power chords (e.g., C5) on mandolin, but they sound more...
