    Re: Why do you like the picks you like?

    3 or 4mm Gravity picks, acrylic polished bevel Stealth triangular. Easiest playing, least noise. Would prefer bare fingers, but these will do.

    Re: Feline String Change Caution

    About 25 years ago give or take, I was preparing to hem some jeans, and was momentarily distracted by a phone call. When I hung up, I could not find my needle and thread anywhere. I suspected one...

    Re: Musical Reincarnation ;-)

    Hi Victor, I just found and listened to this. Beautiful! It sounded familiar, of course because I had heard the mandolin version some while back. But the string orchestral version has more depth...

    Re: how often do you refill your humidifier?

    I don't dare get a humidifier - it would probably try to fill itself! (we have dehumidifiers)

  5. Re: Has Anyone Received Stimulus Check? (Possible Mandolin Conten

    Still waiting here, but the checks were only supposed to start going out today. That's how we'll be getting ours, as we've always paid taxes through snail mail.

  6. Re: Mandolinists RIOTING over unfair String License fee

    This time of year, again. LOL The robot voice sounded too much like all the scammers who leave messages on my answering machine.

    Re: Resonance of a fiddle vs mandolins (wow)

    Yep, you can get some nice surprises with the old German trade violins. Back when I used to know a lot more teachers, I regularly focused on buying just those types of violins on eBay, which I did...

    Re: Music "Stand" Challenge

    I forgot I even had one like the one posted by pops1. It was hidden behind a bunch of junk on my desk. The top of mine measures roughly 9" across.

    Re: Should I be insulted?

    I have many cats, and have had many more over the years, and the only certain thing is that each one is different. They may prefer one type of instrument timbre over another, or enjoy none at all. ...

    I, too, lust in my heart for a Style A mandola, but practically speaking, cannot justify the expense.

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld string weights

    I'm glad you got your answer. I have no experience with the 174s, other than to try them on mandolas, as I don't have an octave mandolin of any scale right now... I was referring to the 164s being...

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld string weights

    They do make them for octave mandolin, only they're called the Mandola set (174). (For a mandola, you'd want the Alto Mandolin set - 164 -, but they run short, so you'd have to measure your...

    Re: Don't let those mandolins get thirsty

    In my S. Florida house, it's impossible to get the humidity below 60% in the summer, even with the AC running full time. In the master bedroom, which somehow is the most humid room and even worse,...
  18. Re: I put new strings on and positioned the bridge myself

    For me, a string change every three years is quite normal, but I use Thomastiks and don't play exclusively on any one instrument, so they last quite well that long, or even longer. If I'm not...

    Re: Fingerstyle mandolin

    My journey into fifths-tuned ukuleles has led me to explore fingerpicking on mandola. Adds another color to the palette, for sure!

    Re: tenor uke to mandolin tuning
