    Re: Are People Buying Less Mandolins Now?

    As the original poster of these threads, it's clear to me that I should have included banjos! ( and zithers?)

    Re: Carl Minor's Red Diamond demo

    Thanks Roland. Couldn't see the headstock in the first video, but can in the second one. Great sound on that RD, especially for a new mandolin. Never heard a RD I didn't like.

    Speaking of two finger style banjo playing, Nick Hornbuckle with John Reischman and The Jaybirds plays an amazing two finger style bluegrass banjo. Others probably do too, but I've never heard about...

    Re: Doubt about a banjo for Bluegrass

    As we all know, if you get a 5-string, and have it in standard G tuning for bluegrass, it will be a different experience for your brain. The brain craves novelty and learning new things. It will be...

    Re: Are All Lloyd Loars Dropping In Price?

    I liken the Lloyd Loars to paintings by the Old Masters. You know they are old, you know the artist, there are only so many of them, and they hold a lot of meaning in the art world. Sure, you can get...

    Re: Doubt about a banjo for Bluegrass

    I wonder if you got a 5 string banjo, could you tune strings 1,2,3,4 to a tenor banjo tuning, and tune the 5th string to a note that would compliment the tenor banjo tuning. You'd probably get a...

    Re: Are All Lloyd Loars Dropping In Price?

    Yes, Grisman's Loar(s) would be a hefty price, just because HE owned them. Wonder what John Reischman's 1924 Loar would bring? Guesses? He once told me he's had some offers, but that was some years...
