  1. Re: What's the weirdest MUSICAL thing you've ever done?

    I don't actually do anything I think of as weird musically, but I will offer this. I play my mandolin for feral cats. My wife is heavily involved in trap/neuter/return (TNR) of feral cats and when...
  2. Re: Sirius Radio Replaced Bluegrass station 62 with 24/7 Dolly Pa

    Have to admit, I just checked the calendar to make sure I hadn't slept through the winter and it wasn't April first. What a bizarre thing for Sirius to do! Seems like a complete non sequitur...

    Re: Case/Gig bag for F style mandolin.

    I have several different cases and gig bags and could give the pros/cons of each (in my opinion only) but to stick to your question, one really jumps out at me. I really really really like my Access...
  4. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    If I am any indication, it's not an age thing. By the end of PHC, I had stopped listening altogether. I found GK's program very tired. I find CT's new show refreshing and interesting. Yet...
  5. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    I am a fan of Chris's music and have been since the first Nickel Creek album. I went to a concert when Nickel Creek was touring in support of their first album. At the time, they really were very...

    Re: Piccolo (Soprano) Mandolins

    I had Mike Black build one of his A4-type piccolos with a Virzi for me. Wonderful instrument, I can't say enough good about it. I use it in a variety of settings, mainly for melody line playing. ...

    Re: My new Apitius build

    I have to say that I certainly hope you are alive when it is done, and that comment was just a moment of pessimism, not a real concern. I hope you are well, strong and playing daily.

    Also, you...

    Re: My new Apitius build

    Good for you! I'd be stoked, too. As I've mentioned elsewhere, I'd love to have one of his Club Jazz mandolins. Let's see what the future holds; one never knows.

    Please keep us posted, with...

    Re: Is my MAS dead?

    I hope my MAS is never fully cured. Remissions can be good, but reoccurrence let's me recall the passions of a younger time. Even when I don't act on it, it gets the blood moving. It reminds me...

    Re: Is my MAS dead?

    Funny you should ask that question. I believed I was fully cured of MAS by my Phoenix Neoclassical. Perfect instrument for me. But after a few years of MAS-free mandolin bliss, I find myself...

    Re: James or Allen tailpieces-anyone use these?

    Hi Phil,

    That is super helpful. I was planning on taking one of the spares that came with mine to the hardware store to match it up. Now I know just what I need. Thanks!

    Re: James or Allen tailpieces-anyone use these?

    After some thought, I realized that there is one tailpiece that I like as much as my James. It is, however, completely different from the James. The tailpiece on my Phoenix Neoclassical is probably...

    Hey Sperry,

    If you don't mind my asking, how did you take those super clear macro photos? Good shots!

    Re: 1923 A4 Gibson Value

    Hi William,

    How recent was that? Prices really do,seem to fluctuate over time. Also, do you think the Virzi was an issue? I, personally, like the Virzi sound and if I was in the market would...

    Re: James or Allen tailpieces-anyone use these?

    I have a James tailpiece on my Mike Black piccolo mandolin. I really like it and would get one again.

    At first, I had some minor doubts, as I wasn't sure the cover was closing tightly enough. ...

    Very, very sad. Much of the spontaneous fun and unanticipated interaction with interesting strangers has been sucked right out of train or air travel. Still, I find that carrying an instrument case...

    Re: The Un Pequeno

    What? You live in France and are on a diet?! Heresy! Besides, nothing here at the Cafe will put on pounds.

    Actually, I am quite jealous. I'd love to see France, especially the countryside. ...
  19. Re: And Now for Something Completely Different. Gong Master Sven

    That really is something. He should have his own show. He could call it (you can see this one coming. . .) The Gong Show.

    Actually, I found the sound entrancing and would love to hear more from...

    I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy mine, which is Terry's #14. These are really fun instruments!

    I won't offer my opinion because I have not played these two instruments. I just wanted to point out what a great problem this is to have! I'd take the trip suggested by others just for the fun of...
