    Re: How Do I Maximize An Octave Mandolin?

    Agree -- I would also check out players like Sarah Jarosz, Sierra Hull, I'm with Her band (for different voicings). All master players and worth listening to!

    Re: Iwamoto F5 mandolin #118 in progress

  6. Re: Do You Play ALL of Your Mandolins Regularly?

    As long as I am home, I play all three of my F5s every day -- which one gets played most depends on what type of music I play most that day - and sometimes which one is closest to grab - and sometime...

    Re: Stripped screw on case

    If you have dremel tool with a cutting disk, you can cut a new slot into the head and extract it with a flat head screw driver -- if there is enough of the head left.

    Re: Octave Mandolin strings

    A quick look through this thread and I have not seen a reference to Northfield's octave sets. They make one set for archtop and one for flattop Octaves. Here's the description from their website:

    Re: What's the deal with Vintage F4s?

    I've owned a '25 F4 and played several pre-Loar F4's. Generally speaking, the tone of these F4s (2's) is more "woody". I think another way I would describe the tone is maybe last focused or more...
  16. Re: Gibson Master Model vs. Ellis F5 with all of his highest opti

    I have owned both and still own my MM. If either one of them were my only mandolin, I would be happy and content (barring any MAS affects). In the end, I wasn't playing the Ellis as much as I...

    Re: Tonegards

    I've used toneguards on all my mandolins, Kentucky, Flatiron, Weber, Gibson (1927 varnish, 2001 laquer, & 2012 varnish), and Northfield. I've never had a finish issue and certainly no indents in the...

    I was just at the Northfield workshop where Derek said that they do not use torrefied tops in their mandolins.

    After acquiring my Artist 5 bar, I am a huge fan of what the folks at Northfield are doing. So much so that I've sold one of my high end F5's and getting a 4th generation F5 and will have $ left...

    Re: Tuner replacements

    I tried looking up the specs but didn't see them on Saga's website. If the tuners are the same ones (and I think they are) they use to use on the KM-Dawg back in the day, I replaced those with a set...

    If they get wet (rain, snow), they start to do what nature does and break down. That breakdown causes significant enough heat to spontaneously combust. I've seen whole fields burn because one round...
