    Re: What are you playing the blues on?

    For the country blues like you have described, you can't go wrong with a Kalamazoo! I think the mandolins have a wonderful blues sound and are generally easy to find, to play and to set-up. I have...

    Re: Describe your MAS progression

    Good reply, clever.

    Luckily my family and my wife just think I am a little crazy... and they are right.

    Style 1 guitar seems like a reasonable place to start...

    Re: Describe your MAS progression

    I had fun reading your various trips down the MAS road - Thanks to all!

    I would have to give it some thought before I could write my list down, but in the meanwhile if you are interested in MAS...

    Re: The Guitarist ep2 is really about mandolins

    Does anyone know about the mandolin Ricky Skaggs is playing? Is it the famous one I think it is, with the Gibson logo gouged out with a penknife? Where is that mandolin now?
  5. Re: An (incomplete) list of recorded black mandolinists

    One of my blues mandolin heroes is Herb Quinn from New Orleans, who played and recorded with Babe Stovall. This tune is a classic with some wonderful mandolin and guitar interplay on the breaks:

    Re: Removing LR Baggs Radius and Reinstalling

    The radius is a great pick-up; no matter how loud the room is, the pick-up sounds natural and doesn't feedback.

    However, I wanted to swap it to another mandolin. The clear putty stayed on the top...

    Re: Less Collectible Gibson's

    I gotta agree with all that... my 1933 A 50 is amazing sounding (and has a great sunburst), and has more tone and volume than my 1924 Snakehead. Plus my Kalamazoo's from the 30's also have a...

    Re: I am a Stradolin convert!

    The Gibsons lines such as Kalamazoo, Cromwell, etc - both mandolin and archtop guitars - were all pressed and NOT carved. I am pretty sure my Stradolin from the 40's is pressed as well but I have...

    Re: Old Regal Reso

    I had the Dobro version before I traded it to a friend who really wanted it. It was a good sounding mandolin that was a fun addition with other instruments.

    Re: Now that I know it's an 1933 A-50...

    Do you still have your A-50?
    I also have one from 1933 (based on the FON and the Spann book) that has had some repair work but still looks great. I traded for mine a couple of years ago and finally...
  11. Help with a bridge question for my 1930's A 50

    I have an oval hole A50 from the 1930's and I am setting it up. The bridge was off it when I got and I wondered if anyone knows where the Pat 18 - 21 stamp would go on the bridge relative to the...
