    Re: Mandola Sounds?

    I really like this sound, too. I have a 2015 Weber Bitterroot mandola that approaches this tone, maybe just slightly brighter. FWIW it was made in Bend OR, signed by Bruce.

    Re: How Much Difference Do Speakers Make?

    fwiw: I bought a set of Klipsch speakers (expensive, for me at least) primarily for classical music played through my computer sound card. They sounded pretty good when volume was turned up loud...

    Re: Are classified ads ever deleted?

    And sometimes the seller is so excited to make a sale that he forgets to do any of that and the ad runs until it expires.

    :redface: Yup. I'm guilty as described. :redface:

    Re: Lyon & Healy mandolin scales

    Hmm - I didn't think about bridge compensation for the TI's. Theoretically, I am sure you are right. Probably practically, too, if you spend any amount of time playing up above the seventh fret....

    Re: Finally Finished: Soliver #001

    I really like the mandolin, Spencer. And I am envious of your picking. Folks, I am proud to say that he was a fellow Newbie a while back. He graduated. I'm still working on it.

    Re: NMD Arrow 5 string Jazzbo

    I have heard two Arrows. Both had wonderful tone. One was Tim Connell's. The other was a mandola played by a nice lady in the Oregon Mandolin Orchestra. Can't remember her name right now, but my ears...

    Re: Documenting my journey

    One great way to document the journey, for me at least, is with videos. They don't have to be fancy productions, although that can be a fun hobby too. I've been participating in the Tune of the Month...

  22. Re: "banjo-mandolin" and "nice sounding": an oxymoron?

    Re: Dean Webb, Mandolin Man Ongoing

    Hearing Dean on my first acquaintance with the Dillards (their Live! LP) really opened my eyes regarding the mandolin. I even put his break from "Old Joseph" on that album on my phone as a ringtone.
