    Re: Left-Handed Players

    That probably was helpful—sort of like watching someone else in a mirror.

    Re: Left-Handed Players

    I know a few lefties and they don’t have it easy. I don’t know why they are in such a minority. You would think that it would be 50% of the people on earth. Strange. Some tools are more difficult for...

    Re: Left-Handed Players

    I wonder if there are any right-handed folks who opted to pay lefty. Maybe somewhere in the world, like in a mirror or another dimension? :)

    Re: Rosario Genovese mandolin

    Best strings in my opinion are Dogal Calace RW92b Dolce. In US available from Bernunzio.com. I am not sure where you are located.

    Re: Rosario Genovese mandolin

    Even more important, antykathera: These mandolins will not tolerate standard modern strings. You need to string them with extra-lights. I fear that may be why the top looks like it maybe be warping....
  9. Re: NMC rare relic (re-purposed autoharp body)

    Not an autoharp, more of a manual model.

    Re: Rosario Genovese mandolin

    This is very exciting to me. Sometime after this thread I acquired this Rosario Genovese mandolin from Greg. I have not seen any others by this maker (or dealer). I am not sure what to do with it...
  11. Re: Sebastian de Grebber, Dutch Mandolin Chamber Orchestra

    Tim: all the conversations are still available to read here if you have the time.
  12. Re: Sebastian de Grebber, Dutch Mandolin Chamber Orchestra

    Tim: many moons ago the classical section of these forums was very active with many of those artists actually posting here. I had played in a classical-oriented mandolin orchestra in New York but I...

    I read your mind, Nick. Google works in strange ways.
  14. Re: Looking for mando arrangements of Jewish music, prayers

    Just to clarify one thing. The OP and at least one person recently was looking for arrangements or sources of Jewish liturgical music. Klezmer, while influenced by that genre (and quite a few others)...

    Re: Prettiest A model I have seen in a while

    It seems to be gone. Maybe sold already?

    Of course, there is this one at the Music Emporium.

    Here's the direct link.

    I love that hummingbird inlay. i love those little birds. I am not sure...
  16. Re: Sebastian de Grebber, Dutch Mandolin Chamber Orchestra

    Yes, Martin, you must like Ralf Leenen, since you listed him twice, unless you are referring to his twin, also called Ralf Leenen. :)
  17. Re: Another Mystery Bowlback (to test your patience)

    Nick: you link to a general Google search for "carmelo catania butterfly mandolin" with loads of photos. I looked for the image and I think this is it:

    Re: Ebay F-4 seller with low feedback

    I understand your concern. Also, none of his other transactions as a seller were for musical instruments. OTOH his description seems above board. He even mentioned the refinish and the scratch on the...

    Weymann, Bauer and Stewart (all connected) seemed to be among the Philadelphia makers that used these front loading tuners.

    Re: Kerman Mandolin status as of 2019

    The last time I heard that Kerman was charging about what a quality F-5 would cost here in the US. Did he quote you a price and how long it would take to make it?

    In the meantime, if this doesn't...

    Tony: You say your guitar picks don't cut it but what guitar picks are you using? And what it is about your picks that don't work or is it you are just not used to the different feel of a mandolin....
  23. Re: Another Mystery Bowlback (to test your patience)

    I agree with Nevin that the bowl looks like rosewood. Most bowlbacks were either maple or rosewood, rarely except in lowest level did they ever use mahogany.

    D'Addario J-74s are medium-gauge...

    And from a few Maurers. It seems like the mid-line and fancier had these collars and the others none.
