    Re: Howe-Orme mandolin video

    A few minutes ago the thought hit me that I had listened to the whole video with interest but I don't remember hearing the word "mandolinetto". So is that a word that was used when these instruments...

    Stable Cracks

    I have seen the phrase "stable crack" used fairly often, often in "for sale" ads. But I confess that when I think about the phrase I have difficulty understanding just exactly what it means.

    Re: Weber Yellowstone Experts

    March, 2005. last 2 digits = month. first digit = year-2000 for seven digit s/n's.

    Re: Weber Yellowstone Transformation

    Two things I am curious about:
    a) what year was your Yellowstone made?
    b) I am surprised that it had polyurethane or that it was so thick.

  11. Re: What Are Some Good Options in the $2-3k range?

    Oh jeez. That is a scary story. I feel sad for you and for TMS both.

    I'd love to hear a sound sample, too!

    Congrats on the new mando!
  13. Re: Tone differences between Yellowstone A and Yellowstone 2 poin

    I currently have the three Weber models you mention. The A and F are very similar sounding. If you have played a Weber, you know they all seem mellow in comparison to, say, a Collings. But they still...
