  1. Re: Northfield M, a Step Up From My KM-900?

    Every Northfield I've played has sounded really good, but each is unique and every player is look )listening?) for something different. I'd play before I'd buy, but sight unseen would choose a...

    Re: The cure for MAS

    My catch. & release program works well for maintaining a stable fleet until I catch more than I release!

    Re: Two mandolins from the same maker

    Does sequential ownership count? I've had 4 Gibson oval holes over the years, but only an A2z and a '23 F2 at the same time. Also sequential Ellis mandolins: an A5 and the current twin point The...

    Re: Loar-era Gibson F4 -- Structurally Sound?

    I'd agree with the advice to have the mandolin evaluated by a Mando-centric luthier for a loose brace before stringing it up with mediums. Otherwise, it looks to be in great condition. ...

    Re: Carl Martin Interview 1977

    Nice to see this thread resurrected & great pictures - I loved this band! In 1972-3 I lived across the street from a great (now closed) venue for live music in Iowa City, IA - The Mill. Martin,...

    Re: My MAS is cured.

    Having sworn I would adhere to a "one in, one out" policy, I now am in a situation where I can't decide which one should go out. Might have to break my oath and leave those decisions to the kids.

    Re: 1992 Nugget A Deluxe #155

    That is one nice-looking Nugget A5 Deluxe- love the inlay on the headstock. Bet it sounds great and will find a buyer.
  13. Re: Advice/Suggestions on characteristics of an ideal mandolin st

    Definitely no metal! I'd avoid hard plastic as well, for concern about marking up the mandolin if you put the strap in the case with your mandolin. I usually buy a 2-pack of rawhide 48" shoelaces...

    Re: Do You Baby Your Mandolin?

    I use my instruments, but don't abuse them. I definitely don't abuse them, but the ones that I play have all gotten that first ding that I put on them, even the older instruments that I bought used....
  15. Re: Carbon Fiber Builder wants our input on a Carbon Fiber Mandol

    There will never be a new (or old, for that matter) mandolin that pushes all the buttons for everybody. I know I've sold some relatively high-end mandolins that just didn't have it for me but...

    Re: NMD Gibson A-1 from 1912!

    IrishPicker10: That is certainly a well-preserved >100 year old Gibson! I hope you play the potatoes out of it. It may pick up some distressing, but it needs - is begging - to be played hard!

    Re: 1987 Gibson F5L

    I agree with Len - if I were in the market for a new mandolin, I would snap that up in a moment's notice. The back is psychedelic! And these instruments almost always sound great.

    Re: Mandolin Cafe hats

    I've lost a few and given a few away over the years - sometimes I'll order 2 at a time when they come up. The limited runs usually sell out. I think I've currently got a red and a black cloth...

    Re: Northfield Airloom Recurve with A-style

    I have one for "about the town" use and fits my Nugget A, also an Ellis twin point. When I travel out of town, I use a Calton for maximal protection.
  20. Not Our First Goat Rodeo at Red Rocks Amphitheater

    Great show in a wonderful venue last night. You could tell how amped up the group was, and a very appreciative crowd after months without or with a paucity of live music. I hope venues can stay...

    I too would be concerned about a naked foam pad's effect on a nitro finish or making an imprint on new varnish. You could make a "pillow cover" to protect the finish, at the expense of interfering...
