  1. Re: Are All Lloyd Loars Dropping In Price?

    You would come out a very confused camper for sure.

    It has been discussed and I agree that there is a noticable difference in the perception of sound of a LL when you are the audience as opposed...

    Re: The master’s hands

    What mandolin (brand, a or f, year built/akquisition etc) is it?

    Once an instrument has been played in it retains its soundquality. Read about the famous Kreissler violin for example. My mandolins...

    Re: One Mandolin - forever...

    As the original question was "what if you could only own one mandolin out of the ones you have played or you own" it´s a pretty wide margin. It could be your own former mandolins, a mandolin that you...

    Re: Concerning Loar copy mandolins

    Play it in good health!

    From a brief contact with billbows I have learned that he tries to emulate the sound of Bill Monroe´s July 9th Loar from the early 60ies (if I remember right; it definetly...

    Re: Concerning Loar copy mandolins

    Now that´s a dandy! What year was it made? When did you get it? How does it compare to the Wiens that you had (Loar tone vs. modern tone etc.)? I´d really like to know.
  7. Re: East Tennessee Blues by Joe K. Walsh & Aaron Weinstein

    Very nice. I especially liked the nod towards the "Little Rock Getaway" (one of my alltime favorites).

    How did you do it? Did one of you send the other a recording that the other then played to...

    Re: For John Prine

    First time conciously listening to a John Prine song was "GrandpaWas A Carpenter" (Circle II) and "Paradise" (a Jim & Jesse album and a "Country Gentlemen" album). Grandpa was a carpenter not only...
  9. Re: Wegen (bluegrass) picks without grip holes available?

    Thank you kindly.
    The mandolin store, like many, carries Wegen picks. It has the Bluegrass picks (with holes) and the „M“ variety (that you refer to). M-picks indeed have no holes. The shape is...

    Jethro Burns on guitar is allways great. I wish I knew how to play chords like that.
  11. UPDATE; Re: Wegen (bluegrass) picks without grip holes available?

    I contacted Martin Hense (martinsmusikkiste.de) who is an extremely reliable internet salesperson for any musical equipment. I have no affiliation even though I eventually buy things from him from...

  13. Re: Wegen (bluegrass) picks without grip holes available?

    Thank´s all.

    I have some M150 picks also. But I´d have to cut them to size (teardrop shape etc.). Apparently Wegen makes some kinds of picks without and some with holes.

    As it is in these...
  14. Wegen (bluegrass) picks without grip holes available?

    I will run low on my supply on Wegen picks in the forseeable future. It´s been a long time in the coming.

    I have Wegen (bluegrass) picks without holes. That´s what I like. Are they still...

  16. Re: 1923 Lloyd Loar Previously Owned by Joe Val For Sale

    It´s a great mandolin. I´ve played it. It gave me a serious hearing adjustment towards other instruments. I´d have no qualms to own it.

    The owner is a nice guy. I hope his health concerns are not...

    Re: What's up with this A4?

    The fretboard (extention) is not right for a mandolin. That kind of fretboard indicates a mandola. So... is the instrument a mandolin or a mandola?

    Well...

    The Wolle pick example shows that classical performers prefer a thick though quite flexible pick. Us bluegrass folks like stiff picks. I doubt that any of us would like to use a Wolle pick...

    Re: Blue Chips

    This thread had quite some funny moments.

    Pick pouches (on a key chain) disintegrated on me. Therefore no more of that.
