    Re: Sold my Collings and got a Pava

    My experience was similar, so I sold both a Collings and a Pava and got a Passernig kind of like this one:

  2. Re: Quite ill with a trach and a feeding tube

    I had noticed the absence of your generous, positive presence, Dan, and have had you in my prayers. I trust that you can navigate this transition, as you have the rest of your disease, with grace and...

    Re: Really Basic String Question

    I was under the impression that even the different manufacturers source their wire from a tiny number of producers.

    Re: A Willing Vessel

    Yes Josh and Spencer, this TM5 as Gary calls it has relocated to South Florida. Bill is correct in that it is definitely punchy for a mandola. And Doug is also right in that Garyís whitefaced octave...

    Re: Virzi tone producer

    Like Bob above, I had Mike Black build a Virzi into my A2-z. I was particularly impressed by this video:



    I also know Gail Hester to have tinkered with the Virzi, while Jamie Wiens offers his...

    A Willing Vessel

    I think I first became interested in a mandola when the snakehead H2, nicknamed “The Centaur,” turned up at ETSU back in 2015:

    Re: Quick Gibson A set up question

    Mine is lower as well. You may have just encountered the drawback of an A Jr. versus an A model (or higher), as an adjustable truss rod and bridge would make it easier to dial in the action to your...

    Re: Weber Redesign results

    Youíre almost certain to do better if you buy used (rather than new) and sell your Eastman (rather than trade).

    Re: Stanley Mandolins

    I believe that’s PJ’s old A5:

    I once had Stanley #46 pass through my hands, and I considered that one on Gruhn’s...

  11. Re: Flatiron Pancake v. Sawchyn Beavertail v. Poe Scout

    My curiosity is piqued as well . . . :whistling:



    One that I’d still consider is an Arches. I don’t believe Chris to be building currently, due to a shop fire, but his FT-O models both look and...

    I already have a Loar A5 tribute from Gail Hester, though I am interested to see what Max Girouard does with “The Griffith.”

    Re: Girouard Mandolins

    It looks like there has been additional information added about preparing the tops and backs, though it does not seem to be dated. Do you have any more recent updates, Max?

    Yeah, you won’t be seeing mine any time soon. ;)
  15. Re: Flatiron Pancake v. Sawchyn Beavertail v. Poe Scout

    I can only answer two-thirds of your query, as I have not yet had the good fortune to play a Beavertail. But I bought a Flatiron as my second mandolin, and I really loved the way it sounded, with a...

    Re: Any other Big Muddy owners out there?

    Like many I imagine, I found the Big Muddy (or in my case Mike’s earlier incarnation as Mid-Missouri) to be my gateway drug when I migrated over from guitar. I put a lot of hours into that thing, and...

    He listed four instruments for sale in the classifieds back in November including this tenor:

  21. Re: Ebay Ratliff Mandolin Ads - Why is there little interest?

    I wouldn’t be concerned that the instrument is from October of 2018. I would question why Charles is asking $100 more than Elderly’s price and expect to negotiate.
  22. Re: Ebay Ratliff Mandolin Ads - Why is there little interest?

    Post a WTB (Want to Buy) ad in the classifieds. As Elderly lists them (when available) for $1350 new, I’d expect to pay ~70% of that figure ($945) for a used one in good shape and then negotiate the...

    Re: upgrade thoughts

    Bought my MT for $1600 in 2013 and sold it locally in 2016 for $1500 without fees or issues. Of course, the price of new instruments has gone up since then, which might be impacting the secondary...

    Interesting. Has Tom built any A5’s as part of his Traditional line? I was under the impression that he developed that option as an alternative to his usual voicing, which is noted for its complex...
