    Re: Loar K-5 Mandocello

    I’ve got a 10 string K-5 from Lawrence Smart that I adore. I’m sure he’d make an 8 string if he hasn’t already!

    Re: Balancing a headstock-heavy CBOM?

    I know the feeling! Looks like you are using a nice wide strap, but perhaps something with more grip? I use a leather strap (nothing fancy) with a slightly rough natural underside that helps keep the...
  5. Re: Sourcing Custom Trapeze Tailpieces (Archtop Guitar Style)

    I'm asking for some pretty specific hardware that doesn't exist and have a vision in my head, so I'm more than happy to do some scouting, they are also on the case.

    Re: Strings for gold tone mandocello?

    I saw that set, and I assume that’s what’s on it right now, but I don’t love the D string 34, as is up around 35 lbs of tension compared to about 25 for the other three courses. Also the phosphor...

    Re: TablEdit is back!

    I pretty much learned to play mandolin by pouring over these tabs as a kid, and it makes me so happy to see the project get new life! Thanks Larry!

    Re: Octave Mandolin Strings

    That 40 for your D seems extremely heavy. I personally wound be worried about that much tension, both for the string and the instrument. I love to use this tension calculator and aim between 20 and...

    Re: Octave Mandolin Strings

    That E string at 12 seems really light. A 15 would be more appropriately tensioned compared to a 52. I recommend using the gauges for mandola strings which should get you into the ballpark assuming...

    I had my middle position swapped (after I made my review) to the beefier sound, much improved in my opinion, but I know some folks like the way that middle position sounds normally. Series and...
