    Re: Fretless mandolin?

    You feel irritated, confused, discombobulated? :( :confused:

    I think it takes great skill to play a fretless instrument the correct way to sound in tune and pleasant to the ears. Fretless is...

  7. Re: Does your mando need a setup? Learn to do it yourself!

    I received mine and have looked it over. It is very detailed, well-written, and I appreciate it, Rob. I have done some of my own work, but now I will be able to do more. Autonomy is a good thing.
  8. Re: Shove that Pigs Foot a Little Farther into the Fire

    Shove the Pig's Foot is my favorite old time tune and you did a great job! I think that it is amazing to be able to play all those instruments with that kind of flow.

    Re: potato chip casein picks

    Nik will come up with a better idea, but my first idea for this that popped into my head was to use a heat/singe barrier (a piece of cotton cloth), and a steam iron on a very flat, hard surface. It...

    Bump... I just received some of those Taylor Thermex picks and at first, I was somewhat unimpressed, BUT, I polished the points to a shine and then both the tone and the glide on the strings was so...
  13. Re: Suggestions for types strings and a mandolin

    If your Weber has excellent fretwork and a great setup, you can go with Thomastik-Infeld strings. They are the easiest I have played (on someone else's mandolin), but they will sound less bright and...

    Re: Bela Fleck and Chris Thile

    Re: Punch brothers

    OK, what time signature WAS that? I got the warm fuzzies when they went back to the traditional timing/feel. They certainly are fabulous musicians.
  17. Re: Made a Bone Saddle for my F4. Big Improvement!

    That's a job well done! You have skills. I too like the look after you dyed it black. What kind of black dye did you use? It really soaked in nicely.

    Re: New Mando... Hamlett Two-Point

    Congratulations, Kevin! That is one gorgeous and sweet, clear-toned mandolin. I know that Hamlett mandolins are also very light in weight, a good thing.
