  1. Re: What’s the oddest mandolin related gift you’ve been given?

    Matt, neither of these qualify as "odd"--rather, they are AWESOME! My son, also named Matt, gave me two treasures for Father's Day this year: A copy of the classic Skaggs-Rice vinyl, with the cover...

    Sort of A Dumb Question

    I have noticed that many of the Mandolin Cafe patrons list their instruments at the bottom of their messages. Is that something that you have to do each time you post, or is there a way of creating...
  5. Re: What song, Album, Musician changed your perspective on music?

    This is really a fun question to ponder. Let me start with bluegrass, my first love; it would be Old and In the Way's version of the Stones' "Wild Horses". Totally awesome, and a good reminder that...

    Re: Gibson F9 2004

    Thanks, Rob Roy!! In addition to the F-9, I have a Weber Gallatin A-style, a Bruhn two-point, and a cheap but not that bad Epiphone. I've been mostly playing on the F-9, but the other day I pulled...

    Re: Road trip music

    If you are interested in some purely mellow and feel-good music, which can work for good traveling, Mandolin Orange (now called Watchhouse) definitely works. I would start with the album "This Side...

    Re: Gibson F9 2004

    Thanks so much, Jim! Yep, those are the strings. So far, I like them quite a bit. They definitely have a mellow sound, and I have not had them going out of tune frequently, like a couple of the...

    Re: Gibson F9 2004

    That's a great one, Allen!! Yep, faster is not always better; it may be faster, but what's the goal? I have often used the comparison of John Popper and Bob Dylan playing the harmonica. No doubt,...

    One of my favorite quotes about music comes from Voltaire in "Candide". In there, he says: "Music nowadays is little more than the art of executing difficulties." I love that one!!

    Re: Gibson F9 2004

    Thanks, pops1. That's good information. Right now, I just have a little Vox 10-watt amp that I ran it thru yesterday. But, I really plan on mostly just playing it as an acoustic. I am still...

    Re: Gibson F9 2004

    Thanks, MandoMan1. I will definitely keep the Daddario EJ 74s in mind. Fortunately, the previous owner left 3 sets of the Prazision strings (they are made in Vienna, Austria) and because they are...

    Re: Gibson F9 2004

    Thanks, Allen! Yes, I meant it has a pickup installed. I haven't tried it out thru an amp as yet. The pickup is apparently inside toward the bottom, or end piece. The plug-in receptacle is also...

    Gibson F9 2004

    Hello everyone! I just bought a 2004 Gibson F9 that our music store had on consignment and I have a question or two. I don't know who previously owned this F9, but they apparently gave it...
