  1. Beautiful chalk art at Seattle Art Museum

    My wife and I were in Seattle on Friday and Saturday. It was our first visit to this beautiful city. While walking near the Pike Place Market (highly recommended!) we passed the Seattle Art Museum...
  2. Re: How much does a Northfield actually cost to make?

    One can also look to Taylor, Martin and other domestic manufacturers and compare the materials and cosmetic details on, for example, a D-18 and an OM-45 De Luxe Authentic 1930, which is 3000% more...

    Re: Fender Tru-Shell picks

    Those Tru Shells are definitely a great low-cost alternative to Red Bears. I have several of both the Fender and Red Bears that Iíve shaped and beveled in subtlety different ways, all with good...

    Re: Seeking song suggestions, cool groves

    Not entirely sure what you might be looking for, but Old Dangerfield and Old Ebenezer Scrooge are both great tunes. Mandozine probably has TablEdit files of both. Big Sciota and Stony Point are a...
  6. Art TubeMix - Nice little mixer/USB audio interface

    I needed a small mixer with USB connectivity since I gave my Mackie ProFX to my son. I was looking at the PreSonus and Allen & Heath ZED mixers but realized I would likely never make use of all the...

    Re: In The Pines

    My current favorite rendition of this tune is on the Todd Phillips album of the same name. This instructional play-along book/CD combo has a really nice arrangement with tabs.
  10. Re: Interface to connect DPA microphone XLR to Ipad or PC Laptop

    There are a lot of options here. I'll add one more to the mix - the Yamaha AG series mixers and audio interfaces. Audio quality on these is astounding for the price point. 24 bit 192 kHz sampling...

    That leaves the mystery still unsolved. I thought sure someone at the cafe would peg that picker in no time.

    BTW - that’s a great video of Don, Ivan. Thanks for posting it!

    I think Jesse Brock might be too young to be the mandolinist in that video - the Wikipedia article says he was on King’s final recordings circa 2013. And ‘Prayer’ appears to be a typo. It is spelled...

    I do like that version with Don Rigsby. I saw Rigsby close up a few years ago at Walker Creek Music Camp. He brought the house down with his rendition of Kentucky Waltz.

  20. Re: Mandolins most responsive to a light touch?

    I expect you are going to get as many opinions on this question as there are mandolinists. In my 40+ year experience owning multiple acoustic fretted instruments (ukulele, guitar, mandolin and bass)...

    Re: Next frontier: What's next after Mandolin???

    Many thanks for all the useful concertina info/discussion. The Button Box was already on my radar and likely where I would start an earnest search for my first reeded squeeze box.
