    Re: Thats a suprise Regal Reverse Scroll

    To be clear - which in retrospect, I was not - it's not my definition. It's a consensus definition compiled from several on-line dictionaries. That is, in an attempt to settle something that was...

    Re: Thats a suprise Regal Reverse Scroll

    Thanks for the clarification after the fact. Grazie, amico.



    Oh well. I tried. Note to self: Maybe ease off on the coffee a bit ... ~o) ;) :whistling:

    This does give me the opportunity to...

    Re: coolest shirt I ever had

    I did a www google, did not access through the Mandolin Café. Lots of similar results to what you displayed, but didn't see a MC attrbution. I repeat - Sorry! :redface:

    Re: coolest shirt I ever had

    Oops! Sorry for causing any ruckus.:redface: My point was that the image was easy to find via google. Though oddly, the original (Mandolin Café) didn't show up. That seems odd. :confused: At both of...

    Re: coolest shirt I ever had

    Not a big deal. Me, I just about always do my research first and then come here if I get stumped. Quite a hive mind here. :cool:

    Might not hurt to get started on the artwork and sort out the...

    Re: coolest shirt I ever had

    Hey! Don't you guys know about google? This took less than a minute. I just googled "evolution of mandolin," then selected "images."

    Y'all can take it from here. And yes, someone should at least...

    Re: mandolins on television

    The wiki page on the evil doctor has a list of all ten episodes featuring him. Recognize any of them?

    "The Night the Wizard Shook the Earth" – Episode #3
    "The Night That Terror Stalked the Town"...
  8. Re: Ultimate Vintage Snakeheadedness and Chocolatey Goodness

    My word, that is drop dead gorgeous! (As they used to say, back in her day.) I hope she grows to sound as good as she looks. Now, I know it's a bit unseemly to ask a lady's age (and she clearly is a...

    Re: Thats a suprise Regal Reverse Scroll

    It started being about a Regal mandolin with a reverse-oriented (in the Gibson-and-similar-design universe) scroll, and a dovetail joint that is perhaps more interesting but has been overlooked,...

    Re: Sleep with One Eye Open

    I'm a bit confused here. I don't understand why this was posted to begin with, as the original post dates to March 2011, so this doesn't appear as part of the "On This Day" function. And then the...

    Re: Thats a suprise Regal Reverse Scroll

    I know what you mean. Pillsbury, I believe, and still around. But I think brunello was talking about food in a squeeze tube. I've seen mayo, wasabi, and other things packaged that way. But other than...

    Re: Thats a suprise Regal Reverse Scroll

    Thanks for pointing that out. Overlooked it. But it's in the opposite direction! :disbelief: As is the headstock scroll. :confused:

    In the Gibson style, main scroll and headstock scroll are in the...

    Whoa, now, hold on, there. You're making some assumptions, and I believe they are not grounded in fact.

    Re: Thats a suprise

    So does that mean that this cinnamon bun has a reverse scroll? Or is that spiral formation considered correct? Then wouldn't that make the Regal method correct and the Gibson F-style scroll reverse?...
  17. Re: Embarassing Question - Which Mandolin to Bring to Jam?

    When in doubt, do this. Words to live by. Worth repeating ...



    That oughta do. ;)

    Though perhaps the problem is, which path to take in order to have fun. One could argue either way you go...
  18. Re: Embarassing Question - Which Mandolin to Bring to Jam?

    I used to struggle with this myself. Should I bring my 100-year-old Gibson that sounds really good but risk worrying about damaging it, or bring my beater that will survive just about anything and...

    Re: Luthier in Central Florida

    Member Charles E. up in St. Augustine might be able to help you out. I don't know if he does repairs, but he's built a couple of nice mandolins, so he surely has the skill set and tools.
  20. Re: How often should my mandolin need to be tuned?

    Thanks, Whimpsta. Well, to my mind, knowing that eliminates a fair amount of possible causes. If I recall correctly, Silverangels are regarded pretty highly around here. So I'm leaning more toward...

    Re: Do I need a mandola?

    It's worth pointing out that a mandola is a different instrument than a mandolin. Similar in many ways, of course, but different. I got mine because I wanted to, and could, not needed to. Well,...

    Here's my 1916 H-2 (on the left in both pics.) The first is better for color, the second is better for focus.

  24. Re: How often should my mandolin need to be tuned?

    I would still like to know what make/brand/mfr your mandolin is and its age.
  25. Re: How often should my mandolin need to be tuned?

    Yes, indeedy. All that and more. Not as simple a question as one might think, as evidenced by the wide-ranging input here. ;) As all too often happens, we haven't heard from the OP, so we don't know...
