    Re: Should I be insulted?

    I have many cats, and have had many more over the years, and the only certain thing is that each one is different. They may prefer one type of instrument timbre over another, or enjoy none at all. ...

    Re: Is there a mandolin equivelent out there?

    The best part of that video was the nice high-pitched cello playing in the background. ;)

  5. Re: Classical nerd roll call: Lyon & Healy archtops

    I, too, lust in my heart for a Style A mandola, but practically speaking, cannot justify the expense.

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld string weights

    I'm glad you got your answer. I have no experience with the 174s, other than to try them on mandolas, as I don't have an octave mandolin of any scale right now... I was referring to the 164s being...

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld string weights

    They do make them for octave mandolin, only they're called the Mandola set (174). (For a mandola, you'd want the Alto Mandolin set - 164 -, but they run short, so you'd have to measure your...

    Re: Don't let those mandolins get thirsty

    In my S. Florida house, it's impossible to get the humidity below 60% in the summer, even with the AC running full time. In the master bedroom, which somehow is the most humid room and even worse,...
  10. Re: I put new strings on and positioned the bridge myself

    For me, a string change every three years is quite normal, but I use Thomastiks and don't play exclusively on any one instrument, so they last quite well that long, or even longer. If I'm not...

    I love that, Bob! You should post some videos! I also love your tagline - I have a sign in my kitchen that says the same thing. ;)

    Re: Fingerstyle mandolin

    My journey into fifths-tuned ukuleles has led me to explore fingerpicking on mandola. Adds another color to the palette, for sure!

    Was that the point all along, for real? I always wondered what their name meant, but never put 2 and 2 together because the accent on mandarin is on the first syllable, and the accent on mandolin is...

    Re: tenor uke to mandolin tuning

    Tenor ukes work great in CGDA mandola tuning. GDAE, not so much - you need a shorter scale uke.

    Hi Victor, good to "see" you, too! Good points - real music (versus synthetic) includes its many integral extraneous sounds, and each of us has our personal tolerance/annoyance thresholds. The only...

    Re: Timple in 5ths tuning

    Very interesting! I only visited Lanzarote briefly, and of course I didn't know about a long-necked timple - learn something new each day! In that case, I don't know how to attain that tuning. I...
