    Re: Good news, bad news.

    I have two mandolins. An older Red Diamond Vintage model, and a brand new Ellis Fern.
    I’m done shopping forever.

    Re: Gibson F5 Fern finish

    I had a Varnished Fern from 2003 signed by Danny Roberts. It was easily the second best mandolin I have ever owned. I reserve the top spot in my collection for my Red Diamond Vintage model.
  3. Re: anyone own one of the Nugget/Collings A Tim O'Brien mandos?

    Yeah, this is a problem every player should have. Which one should I play? I solved that problem by having both of them out at the same time.

    I learned a lot about setup from this mandolin. It...

    Re: I don't like the sound of tremolo.

    Tremolo was the technique that saved my mandolin playing. I had been struggling with being able to get any speed for a long time. Then, one day I noticed that when I played tremolo, I used a...

    I love Red Diamond mandolins. Before I bought mine, I was on a quest to acquire a Gil. After getting the RD, that quest was quenched.

    Re: Any Ex-Banjo Pickers?

    I have actually all but given up the mandolin in favor of playing banjo. I find that it is easier to keep up than the mandolin. When my wife and I do our duet shows, she told me she actually prefers...

    Re: Kicking off songs

    I'd say it depends. If you don't know the melody strong enough to convey it to the rest of the jam, you can always play a turn around. I like to hear the melody of a tune rendered recognizably in the...

    Re: Collings Varnish owners- a few questions

    Some people claim the varnished instruments sound more mature when new, and break in sooner. Some people say that's a bunch of hooey. I'm in the camp that believes in varnish instruments. I've had...

    Re: Some makes and models of single mics please

    I use the AT4033, but I think it's important to point out that unless you have the knowledge and/or equipment to control these mics, none are going live up to your expectations. I found that a...

    Re: Cafe hat signatures?

    Here's a project I started many years ago. I was going to take the top of this case off, and put it in a shadow box, but it has been hidden away in the basement for years.
  14. Re: Interesting observation on F style vs. A style

    I prefer the mandolins that have eight strings.

    Re: Blue Chip. lose it and see how it affects you

    I have never lost one of my Blue Chips, but I have a number of the same models, so according to the way my luck runs, I won't ever lose one, or wear one out. All my spares will be rendered...

    Re: Tell me about your Red Diamond

    My Vintage Model is voiced like a Reischman. Clear highs, and cutting ability, plenty of volume. I had also owned an A model with the vintage 22 voicing. I wish I had never let it go. Pretty...

    Re: Closed hand picking

    My point was that advising someone that there is only one right way to play, is ridiculous. Chris Thile has stated that he believes there is only one right way to hold the pick. Maybe for him, that...
