  1. Re: Flatiron A-5 Artist, 1,500 should I get it?

    Ah, I didn’t see that in the listing. OTOH Reverb says they have Reverb Protection. Hmmmmm...

    Re: DR Dragonskin Strings...oof.

    I tried Thomastiks on my 23 Gibson A-2 many years ago and hated them. I like them on my vintage Lyon & Healy however but that is about it. I don't even like them on bowlbacks. And, yes, I know many...

    Re: Unusual Benko mandolin

    I have a similar instrument probably also a Prim but it has 5-strings and I call it a tele-tamburitza. You can see why. Oddly the first course is doubled.

    Re: Women Builders

    I met Maegen at the Woodstock Invitational a few years ago. She said she had built a mandolin but didn't have one with her. Her guitars are very nice. I don't know how many mandolins she has built.

    Re: Want to take up the cello

    I love cello but I doubt I would ever play one. I did have a mandocello for awhile but it is a challenge to play cello music on that. If I want the lower range I have a mandola and am checking out an...
  7. Re: Flatiron A-5 Artist, 1,500 should I get it?

    I just found this thread. I would guess that the dealer/seller would honor an approval period and if you took it to your luthier to check it out and your person pronounced it expensive to fix that...

    What, none of you folks want to post the pics for eternity. At least the "smiling crack." I guess I have to do all the work around here while you have all the fun.

    Re: Bowl back identification

    I am agreement with the sage folks above that it is quite possible that this mandolin was built in Catania, Sicily. So far, the only feature I could match in my files is the headstock shape which is...
  10. Re: Roman quartino (piccolo mandolin) by Embergher ?

    He has posted here in the past. I don’t really know him well but you can reach him through his website: http://lippi.net/strumenti/mandolini/?lang=en
  11. Re: Roman quartino (piccolo mandolin) by Embergher ?

    I honestly don't think the workmanship on the OP's mandolin matches the quality of any era of the Embergher shop.

    Lorenzo Lippi posted this Embergher quartino on Embergher Facebook group. He...
  12. Re: Roman quartino (piccolo mandolin) by Embergher ?

    Your photos above do not show up. The Pecoraro terzino has a fully-detailed scratchplate (scrolls) which was characteristic of the 5bis concert instruments.

    Re: 1920ish Martin built? For S.S. Stewart

    I agree. Not a Martin. Weymann did use front mounted tuners FWIW.

    Interesting. These sped-up videos make me more than a little nervous but that is just me.

    He says he used regular wood glue instead of hide glue but I wonder why. He does say that he knows it will...
  15. Re: Roman quartino (piccolo mandolin) by Embergher ?

    It definitely is Roman style but I would say unlikely made in the Embergher shop. Most of the details don't match up to Embergher instruments I have seen. Scratchplate design is amateurish, headstock...

    Re: Mando/ Harp WW2 Fell apart

    A tenor harp is really either a tenor banjo with a wooden soundboard or a tenor guitar with a banjo-shaped body.

    Re: Grandfathers Gibson A3 Mandolin

    My first Gibson was a 1919 A-3 whiteface. It was the best sounding A-model on Mandolin Brothers’ wall. Excellent sounding. Best of luck in restoring it and I hope you will play it as well. So cool...

    Re: Absolute Silence

    That looks pretty nifty but would it work just as well to slip foam under the strings near the bridge?

    Re: Pretty Bowlback Naples 1900-ish

    It could be a genuine non-DeMeglio Since it definitively has traits. On the other hand it also has some non-traits that could easily lead us to a genuine non-Larson. :)
