    Re: Liuto Moderno

    No, I do the same thing, Jim. That is why I posted in red. No need for apology at all. Some folks mention that they are bumping a thread but some don't realize it. Nothing terrible.

  2. Re: If I can build an archtop guitar, can I build an A-style mand

    I am just curious where "around here" is and why there are few mandolins. You must be in somewhere pretty exotic. :)

    Re: Writing out Tab

    The notes in TAB are the position on the fretboard. There is no need to indicate accidentals. And besides you are providing the standard notation which you have that indicated.

    Re: Homemade Casein Picks

    This is sort of what Blackbird eKoa material uses. They are using flax fiber in a resin:



    I played one of their early Clara ukes made from that stuff and it sounded amazing. Not sure how it...
  5. Re: Semi-beginner here... trade-up or keep what I have?

    If you have a need for an excellent mandolin with a good unamplified acoustic sound, go for it. OTOH if you are always going to be playing amplified, I would guess your Godin is excellent for that...

    Re: Liuto Moderno

    I figured you did but not sure about some others. People who don’t notice might get annoyed when some folks who are no longer posting here might ignore their comments from the future. :)

    Re: What is this mandolin?

    This reminds me of that American experimenter Les Paul who played with lots of electronics. None of his early creations were gracefully designed but they sounded the way he liked. Maybe this...

    Ah, yes, but I believe that this strapping emperor has not clothes. Venison Straps?
  10. Re: Advice: new Hohner A style vs Kentucky KM-150

    Some of the later Strad-O-Lins were laminated wood. Early ones were solid. I am not sure which this is. If solid, then a great deal, if not, eh?

    I got four deer that love to visit my backyard. If you figure out how to convert the cow chips... maybe I can use the deer's production. :)

    Still playing those above on both fiddle and mandolin but added Wes Muir's Tune, another C tune as played by Nile Wilson.

    I would go for the Clifford Essex attribution more for the inlays on the fretboard as well as that sort of fleur-de-lis inlay on the back neck button. Hardware, especially tailpieces and tuners, can...

    Re: Let's build a liuto cantabile

    To update this thread here are some photos I have in my files. The site in the first post is no longer working. I believe that Victor Speranski now owns it. Attached also is the measurement image.

    Re: That famous cello prelude, deconstructed

    Thanks so much to both Tom and John for sharing your transcriptions. And, like Mandopops, I want to play this on my mandola to sound it in G.

    Re: What is this mandolin?

    The headstock looks like ones sold by Dallas, probably similar to one below. I am sure there is rampant reptile dentistry evident here with the added electronics.

    Re: Guitar player learning mandolin

    I don't think anyone else mentioned this, but along with the required set up, you may consider lighter gauge strings. You are playing electric anyway so don't need a heavier acoustic strings. I don't...

    Re: Reading music

    Not just woodwind players and not just jazz players, of course. Most highly skilled musicians can do that. I have been playing through some violin scale books and they cover all keys.

    Re: That famous cello prelude, deconstructed

    Tom, could you share your transcription with us? Personally I don’t need the TAB but I do agree that it sounds better in a lower register. That is probably why I like it on OM.

    I am just curious, Tim. What is the nut width? In the photos and the ones on his site it looks wider than others I have seen. Also what top wood did you choose? So the scale length is 23" (hard for...
