  1. Re: What instrument is the hardest? My experience

    No need to apologize. I get it and I love the video. As you might tell by my post to Gunnar, I love world musics.
  2. Re: What instrument is the hardest? My experience

    I don't know. I think that the instrument is deceptively difficult though it sounds simple and the throat singing is not at all easy to master. Try it sometime.
  3. Re: What instrument is the hardest? My experience

    Gunnar: even more interesting to me... do you play Mozambique music? Are you from there? If not, how did you end up there and what are you doing there?

    Re: Did someone say PICKS?

    The seller estimates that there are 13,620 picks and he is asking $1500. That is about 11¢ per pick. He worked in a many NYC stores I used to frequent. Maybe one of those crazy youtubers should buy...

    Re: Bowlbacks of Note

    That is very cool, Bill. I remember that one and probably also avoided it because of the ribs. It looks like someone say on it.

    Let me think on the case possibilities.

    Re: Eastman Bag - The Mandolin Store

    Yeah, I got mine too but they made a small mistake. They sent me someone else's other stuff but they will fix that. The upside is that I got to handle one of those Lakota straps. I would have bought...

    Re: Strad-O-Lin Catalog Pages

    It is done, sire.

    Yes, my Weymann looks just like the A15 with the matching tortoise-oid tailpiece cover.

    Strad-O-Lin Catalog Pages

    I probably posted some of these on various threads over the years but figured I should put them in the photo section of the SOL Social Group.

    These are from some catalog pages from various...

    Re: Lombardic mandolin

    We in the classical department here call them mandolinos. Really they are sort of a hybrid mandolin, sometimes regional. More info here on wikipedia.

    The original baroque mandolino had 6 courses...
  12. Re: A Georgian Panduri (ფანდური) I built

    Jo: I am always amazed at the variety of instruments you build. I looks forward to your posts because I always learn something new.

    Let's see if this video works:

  13. Re: Dogal strings, Anyone tried them out and could comment?

    I always use the RW92B sets on bowlbacks that I play. That includes Calace (natch) and Vega. I tried them first on my Vega style 3 and when my main bowlback was in the shop I brought it to a...
  14. Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    Mugwumps says Premier is a Pepper trademark: Pepper, James W., Philadelphia, PA, 1890+. Strange that the seller contacted Martin, of all people. At least he says, "So it may not be a Premier brand...
  15. Re: A question on a Century of Progress Gibson LC Guitar.

    I got my '35 neck reset and some other work on it by an excellent luthier. It now plays like a dream. Yes the mother-of-toilet-seat fretboard is a royal PITA.
  16. Re: Where can I find a tutorial for new camptown races?

    Only one thing I noticed. They used to have downloadable play-along mp3 on Soundcloud. If you click on the Lessons tabs and click on one of the the tunes the links go to an error page. Still they...
  17. Re: Lyon & Healy Style A, #2356 -- Looking for info

    Hey Hubert and anyone else... so when did L&H start mentioning Washburn on their labels, not just Lyon & Healy and not the number styles for these carved mandolins? It is a bit confusing. I called...
  18. Re: Campanella two-point (How to make an accent on due?)

    First of all what strings do you have on it now? Did Joe tell you what he strings them with? As others have noted, just play it a lot. I do believe that there is some break-in time but this is also a...

    Re: Bowlbacks of Note

    1927 Tipo B student model. Price is reasonable and it looks like it is in decent shape though is almost looks a bit too shiny especially on the bowl. It could have been refinished or oversprayed....

    That is the one I saw. I am on Dave's mailing list and he mentioned it.

    Re: Brentrup Mandolins

    Yes, I was in touch with him after he announced retirement from mandolin building. He told me that he intended to try making only three a year but I guess that was too hard. He eventually stopped...

    Re: Campanella Mandolin

    I played a couple of his mandolins when Joe was first starting. I really would love to play one of the more recent ones. They are beautiful, perfect aesthetic for my eyes.

    Re: Guitar to mandocello conversion idea

    He did it on at least two. One was a Vega and I think also on an Epiphone archtop.

    I think the LH300 would probably be an excellent conversion candidate. Solid top, too. Probably would sound very...

    Check out her website. Jo builds all sorts of interesting world music instruments and posts them from time to time here.

    Interesting tunings (from the wikipedia article):

  25. Re: What instrument is the hardest? My experience

    I played around on DBA for accompanying singing in OT and a little norteño polkas. In my old mandolin orchestra they used the concertinas to play the wind parts. We did Handel's Water Music one year...
