    Re: Cleaning crud on a 1930s mandolin

    I've got a very similar bridge on my Strad-O-Lin. The luthier carved some compensation into the white saddle, and it works well. I like the old look of it. The action has changed around a little bit...

    Re: Newb's first day

    Howdie, LRDave! I'm another newbie who started in my sixties (going on a year and a half now). What Ranald says strikes a chord with me. It's super easy to feel impatient to "be better", more...

    Re: New Eastman won't stay in tune - bad pegs?

    Last summer my Strad-O-Lin stayed in tune for days at a time. This year, with all the July rain (please can we send some out west), not so much. My house has brick walls, and I've been running either...

    Re: Good deal on a Big Muddy M2 on Boston CL

    Wouldn't it be cool to hear the two of them side by side?

    Re: Good deal on a Big Muddy M2 on Boston CL

    It was still there yesterday; he'd raised the price but dropped it down again. I've got a 1999 Mid Mo M15 mandola. I love it. It looks and sounds great, and I like the way it feels in my hand.

    "The Great Mandolins" postcards

    I got these off of ebay, they're pretty cool. By Dix Bruce, they were apparently available through Mandolin World News in 1984. I'm going to group them in a frame and hang them in the room I'm...

    Re: Mandolin Case Storage Solution

    I was thinking along the same lines. Closets can get pretty humid, even if you don't live in Florida.

    It's cool, Sheila, really cool. Old and funky, and the stuff that came with it is great.
    Did you see it before you bought it?

    That's a nice looking tailpiece. Looks good on there, Bob.

    I'm kind of wishing I extended at 40% off rather than waiting until Christmas time (when I first enrolled) for the 50% discount. Who knows, that offer could be in the rear view mirror now. Bean...

    Re: Hot humid weather

    It's been crazy. After 4 days of sweltering heat, my DH said he refused to entertain starting the woodstove in July. Yet on the 4th, at his buddy's house, he was finagling him to start the pellet...
  20. Re: Protecting mandolins from changes in climate

    I spent the whole winter filling humidifier buckets every day, and lately, emptying dehumidifier buckets every day.

    Side benefit is I am more comfortable.

    Re: No love for old Martins?

    How about this mandola in the classifieds? Well out of my league, but looks pretty darned nice. Built the same year my Mom was born.

    Sheila, could this be a good addition for you :mandosmiley: ?

    Re: Good deal on a Big Muddy M2 on Boston CL

    Glad you got a good deal on a good mandolin, and glad he hasn't fallen on hard times.
    So, just because curious minds want to know, if the neck et. al. are good, what is driving the high action?
