    Re: Charity Shop Donation Help

    Those threads should get you lots of info. It looks to be in decent shape with the exception of a piece of the tulipwood border.

    DeMeglio mandolins have labels that say they were made in Italy,...

  3. Re: Interesting Mandolin- Cammeyer -the owner from NYC?

    For historical purposes, here's the original eBay mandolin. What is especially of interest to me is the rather slim neck heel (see last photo). I assume that there must be some pretty substantial...
  4. Re: Interesting Mandolin- Cammeyer -the owner from NYC?

    This web site has some additional info about Cammeyer, that he had a shop until 1939 to make mostly banjos after breaking up with Essex.

    More and similar info here.
  5. Re: Four-string nylon-stringed mando. Acoustic.

    My fingers did not work too well on my phone this morning. Duh! Yes, Nylgut, not Nygut. :)
  6. Re: Interesting Mandolin- Cammeyer -the owner from NYC?

    Yes, interesting mandolin. I hope you can acquire it. I have heard of Cammeyer in terms of banjos but not mandolins. I wonder if the Essex partnership would put a date on this mandolin circa 1900 but...
  7. Re: Four-string nylon-stringed mando. Acoustic.

    Sorry to be a stickler but the brand name is Nygut not Nylagut.

    No problem to jump on an old thread.

    Re: 11 (eleven!) string thing?

    What does the label say? What country is it made in?

    It is a mandriola with a 91.7% discount. Or a Waldzither with three tripled courses and one doubled instead of 4 doubled and one single. Or...

    Re: Bach -- played on a WHAT?

    Nothing like a minuet played with distortion and reverb. :)

    Someone should talk to Hal Leonard and tell them next time to make Carlo Aonzo and John Carlini much larger. Those two would appeal to...

    Re: LiuQin

    Here's a nice piece, evidently another "standard" in liuqin repertoire that reminds me of some of the classical mandolin solo pieces.

    Re: LiuQin

    I just found an older thread with a link for this meeting of John Reischman's group with some Chinese musicians playing "Katy Hill". John duets with liuqin player, then pipa, etc.

    Re: Bach -- played on a WHAT?

    Sad when graphic designers have no knowledge of music. They should have asked Carlo. I bet hr is not real happy and probably never even saw the cover.

    Hey, at least they had a mandolin (of some...
  13. Re: Building a higher-end replica Taylor GS-Mini guitar (NMC)

    A friend of mine just acquired a Collings Parlor 2H-T and it is an amazing guitar. Very small parlor but deep body. The tone is to die for. It is definitely in your range, maybe slightly less in...

    Re: No manufacturer or serial number

    I am not sure but I believe I got that image from the NAMM library and they may have marked it Harmony. I know there are others on that page—that is why I posted the whole page—but that doesn't mean...

    Re: pointy vs round picks.

    The BC pick I have landed on for the moment is a TP50. I am not at all fond of the really rounded ones and the much heavier. I like TAD40 for guitar but smaller for mandolin. I have a TPR50 and TPR60...

    There are quite a few looooooooooooooooooooong threads on Blue Chip picks, deep discussions and arguments, etc. I assume you are talking about recording with multiple picks. Frankly, I can only tell...

    Re: more accurate clip on tuner than Snark?

    Looking at my pile of tuners, I am convinced that none work perfectly and the best I can do would be to get fairly close with one of each pair of strings, then tune the other to the first of each...

    Re: No manufacturer or serial number

    I have this page from a 1935 Grossman catalog. I believe that the "Buckeye" was made by Harmony.

    Looks like that particular model is no longer made. I still think it is a tenor in the video above. Maybe you have one of the...

    Re: 8 string Uke

    Soprano, concert, and tenor Ike’s are tuned GCEA so this tuning would be a major third down from that tuning.
