  1. Re: Happy birthday to me - My new Pomeroy #274

    Looks really nice! Since sustain is a high priority for you, walnut instead of maple was a good call.

    Re: Beginner song list?

    Any Celtic fiddle tune or bluegrass standard can be tamed, so think about the tunes that you enjoy listening to, and then learn them at a moderate pace. I've heard Red Haired Boy played screaming...
  3. Re: Overwhelmed beginner - merging of styles/genres?

    Although he's in the Bluegrass Hall of Fame, Sam Bush would be a good starting point.

    He has several audio and video instruction lessons on...

    Re: Mandolin Lesson Advise

    If you don't have a big budget for lessons, then I suggest looking into either Artist Works or Peghead Nation. Both have TOP-notch instructors. You'll need to put a chunk of change down up front,...

    Re: David Surette's health

    I had just started his Mandolin Almanac online series --- which, of course, was great --- so I got the news through their mailing. I was astounded, since David was typically vivacious during the...

    Re: Beautiful A- Style on Reverb

    In the Product Specs section, it says that the listing is two years old. I'm surprised that the store isn't using the "Make an Offer" feature by now.
  8. Re: Tony Rice Inducted into North Carolina Music Hall of Fame

    Seriously! Given the length of his physical decline, the NCMHF certainly had at least a decade of opportunity to do so. An unnecessarily posthumous induction gives honor to the memory, but not to...

    Re: What next to get?

    I'd vote for choice B, since your budget is more than double the cost of your current mandolin. I agree that your preference for used will apply in the mandolin world, and it basically lets you look...
  10. Re: Sound difference between a 305 and a higher end Mandolin?

    In that case, you have an answer to your original question! :mandosmiley:
  11. Re: Sound difference between a 305 and a higher end Mandolin?

    You can probably evaluate catmandu2's first point by thinking about how sensitive you are to the tonal differences in guitars. What level guitars do you have? Since you're happy with those, you...

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

    Re: Petersen Octave Mandolin

    Mine is a Level 3 with a 22.5 scale length built in 2006. Ive only used EJ80s on it because Ive always been thrilled by their tone on all four courses.

    As for the levels, they definitely...

    Re: Eastman Octave Mando...

    At that price point, it's going to be hard to find an OM that is any better. You might even have to go up another $500-$1K to get the next level even used.

    As Adam mentioned, the Eastman is a...

    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...

    Re: Punch brothers

    Agreed! Tony and Norman were bowling on different lanes in the same alley. The PB are in a totally different alley. I didn't like it on the first listen, but then it grew on me. Still, I'd...

    Re: Northfield FS vs Artist series

    I’ve never played an Artist model, and I haven’t played any Northfields in at least three years, so I’m probably a generation or two behind, but I agree with Lane that the Big Mon —- at least back...

    Outstanding interview! We’re so fortunate to have Tristan Scroggins and Daniel Patrick doing such deep dives for us.
  19. 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...

    Re: Apollo Mike Marshall picks

    If I remember correctly, Mike had been using ProPlec picks for quite a while. I wonder how these will be different, aside from the price.

    Also, does anyone know whether Mike uses the same type of...
  22. 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,...
  23. Re: New Bela Fleck Album out - My Bluegrass Heart

    I ordered the cd through Mandolin when I got the RockyGrass show streaming “ticket,” so I’m not sure when I’ll be getting it. I’m still waiting for the new Watchhouse cd that I bought through...
