    Re: Thanks to Rob Meldrum!

    Even if you don't want to do setup stuff yourself, it is a "must read" for any mandolin owner.

    Welcome, calumscott. Sounds like you have the mandobug for sure so you came to the right ward.
  5. Re: Third string out of tune below the fifth fret

    Here is a non-adjustable bridge on a 1920 Gibson mandocello currently listed on Reverb (NFI). Note the compensation steps. This is the step pattern I would expect when all strings are wound, even...
  6. Re: Third string out of tune below the fifth fret

    That saddle is definitely compensated for two plain treble pairs and two wound bass pairs. I had the same problem with a mandola I bought. New saddle, properly compensated, solved a whole world of...

    Re: Red Diamond Serial Numbers

    Who grabbed the Red Diamond A that was (very briefly) in the classifieds last week? Jaw dropping low price (for an RD). Made me wonder.
  11. Re: Zacro - Your First Name in Pick Retrieval

    Wow. This morning I didn't even know that there was an actual thing called a spudger. Had I known, I would also have known how badly I needed one. Oh, sweet innocence! Amazon now has me on their...
  12. Re: Slight frustration when changing mandolin strings

    How about a slight change in the routine? On my Weber, I do it like this:

    Remove all strings except the outermost G and outermost E.

    I got a suggestion for a handy dandy little D'Addario tool to go with all the tuners, stringwinders, string cutters, etc.
