    Re: Changed back to nickel-silver frets

    I switched to EVO after my first build and to predominantly stainless steel after about my 50th build. To my ear and hand, the biggest differences come from the quality of the seating, leveling,...

    Re: Monitor suggestion for DAW

    I had a potential customer send me a very long, very detailed critique of the tone of all the mandolins I had made to that date. They had very specific opinions about the tone, and strong opinions...

    Re: Uncharted territory in my mandolin life

    Same here. The main difference is that the outside world now is looking more like a dream of Edward Hopper's.

    But I would not worry about the end of MAS. I have played the same instrument for...

  23. Re: Simplifying when notating mandolin music?

    I think you're sort of answering your own question, Doug. Like you wrote, 'I’m not even sure how doable an “exact” transcription might be.' So, when I'm unable to do an exact transcription I just get...
  24. Re: Simplifying when notating mandolin music?

    Depends on who I'm writing it for. For me? I'll write out anything and everything I want to keep as my arrangement. For "the average mandolin player"? I'll write out the basic melody of the tune.
