    Re: What has your mandolin been called?

    What kind of banjo do you have in that case? - it was a National RM-1

    What’s that instrument called? - “George”

    Re: DYN-M pre-amp

    Assuming the Dyn-m you’re using is the P48, it’s a world away from the K&K. The Dyn-m is a condenser mic which requires phantom power. Plug it directly into a mixing desk and switch the phantom on....

    Re: I'm buying a Mandolin

    “This will most likely be my one and only purchase of a mandolin.” ..... I’ve heard that before.

    I think the best choice would be between the Eastman and the Kentucky both in terms of sound and...

    Re: My Pas Washburn Lyon and Healy mandolin

    I’d second having a word with Tevor at TAMCO in Brighton. He’s quite approachable and the only thing you have to loose is the price of a ‘phone call. Trevor sold a similar mandolin not that long ago....

    Re: Always surprised how people send stuff

    I bought my first Calton case (dreadnought) back in 1976 and Keith gave me a discount on shipping on the condition that I let him have the packaging back. I delivered it back to him at that years...
  7. Re: What Mandolin Did I Get From the Thriftstore?

    Looks to me like a Suzuki from the 1970s to me as well (I thought that before I read your post)
  8. Re: Can anybody help me identify this instrument?

    Those tuners look to me as though they’re replacements (....or the manufacturer was saving money on screws).

    It looks like a bouzouki so it likely is a bouzouki. Italy isn’t that far from Greece!

    Re: Radiotone Double Chamber Mandolin

    Congratulations Tony. Glad someone bought it who’s likely to fix it up and play it. At least it looks like a reasonably straight forward fix. I expected it to have a dovetail and to see far more...

    Re: comparing Eastman Mandola's

    With most Eastman stuff, the higher the number the more bling and possibly better hardware, and, oh yes, a free apostrophe!

    Re: Radiotone Double Chamber Mandolin

    Not only dont I need another mandolin, I dont need a repair job sitting around so, unless anyone has anything to add, Ill probably give it a miss; thanks.

    I doubt its the one from Gumtree...

    Re: Radiotone Double Chamber Mandolin

    Has anyone ever had their hands on one of these? I’ve spotted one locally and, from the photographs available, it looks as though it’s in dire need of a neck re-set. In fact it looks so bad, i...

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    Reminds me of a story on UK national radio a few years ago when people were asked if they had met any interesting people.

    A journalist said he’d been talking to a man in an airport departure...

    Re: Free Waterloo Mandolin

    I’d like to win one but the last thing I need is yet another mandolin - I’ve never yet won anything but, if I did win it, could we auction it for Cafe funds?
  18. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    You know, I don’t get the point in Appalachian dulcimers - the bridge is fixed to a lump of wood rather than the top so their design defies “luthieran” logic - but each to their own!

    Re: Country Gazette - A Traitor In Our Midst era

    I did much the same as mandocrucian - bought both on vinyl back in the 70s and the CD back in the noughties.

    My favourite bit has always been Clarence White’s guitar solo on “Huckleberry Hornpipe”.

    I think youll find that most strings are wound onto a hex. core. To a large extent, this is for the advantage of the manufacturers as a hexagonal core tends to grip the windings and stop them from...

    I freely admit that I’m no luthier but doesn’t it also depend on how well the top is finished beneath the appendage?
