    Re: What kind of Mandolin

    Post some more pics. We can't even tell if it is a bowlback or a flatback and I have a feeling those may be banjo-style tuners which would be unusual. Show us the side and any details that might give...

    Re: Mandola Hard Cases

    For your convenience, here's a link to the Collings mandola case ad.

    I find it very odd that Eastman makes and sells mandolas but won't sell a case. Many years ago they had an...
  8. Re: Open Back / Old Time Banjos - Comparisons to Mando Builders

    I started playing old time banjo and fiddle back in the 1970s when there were very few modern banjo shops and most of the players I knew played old/vintage banjos. You can still get a great sounding...
  9. Re: Hey guys and gals, I need some help please . . . old newbie

    It sounds like you loved the Northfield OM. Personally, if you are doing solo work with whatever instrument I would think an mandocello would be less versatile than either a mandola or OM. I would go...

    Re: Powerful A models in the 5K range

    Another possibility is a pre-Gibson Flatiron A5. Mine is 83 and signed by Carlson FWIW.

    Re: The cure for MAS

    Yes! That is it! At one time I had a quartet of black Gibsons including the mandobass. All but the mandolin is gone now. But I still have a at least one of everything except for the mandobass. I...

    Re: The cure for MAS

    My biggest fear is to leave my wife and kids with a mountain of mandolins and other instruments and no backhoe to bury the instruments with. :)

    Re: Orchestra

    I played in the New York Mandolin Orchestra for a number of years. When I first started I could read music notation on mandolin rudimentarily but I got somewhat better as time went on. My background...

    Many years ago Christies had an auction in NYC of a collector who had a whole house full of antique church basses. He was quite wealthy but I think his wife was going to divorce him. I was...

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    Maybe five or six years ago I remember somebody bid up a Loar era F-4 to over $10k but nothing like that since.

  19. Re: National Mandolin Tailpiece, repair or replace?

    Harry Eibert repaired mine many years ago. He is up near Syracuse,NY. I believe he would have replated it for a little more money. At that time there were no replacements except original period ones....

    Re: Arnold Cross Mandolins

    take a look at Arnold’s site linked above. There are lots of photos if you scroll way down to the available section. I can see sort of a “volute” in the back views. Is that what you are talking about?
  21. Re: Vintage photo of a Lyon & Healy mando cello

    I found another photo of this band here on North Dakota Historical Society, however, no mandocello.

    Also, more info on members of the band here.

    Re: New Carlo Aonzo Perfetto Mandolino

    That works though my attempt at nomenclature was descriptive in that it loosely reminded me of a boat hull. One of my favorite makers of these was Mozzani. I played one belonging to the conductor of...

    Re: What brand mandolin is this?

    I think that is Aaron. Just with his head cut off. Ouch! When I met him he was playing a Red Diamond.
  25. Re: Looking for help with bowlback mandolin identification

    I agree with Mick. Also, assuming the scratchplate was original, I don't recall ever seeing a white one with that shape on a bowlback and the butterfly inlay is a bit unusual as well. Is that back...
