  1. Re: Roman quartino (piccolo mandolin) by Embergher ?

    He has posted here in the past. I don’t really know him well but you can reach him through his website: http://lippi.net/strumenti/mandolini/?lang=en
  2. Re: Roman quartino (piccolo mandolin) by Embergher ?

    I honestly don't think the workmanship on the OP's mandolin matches the quality of any era of the Embergher shop.

    Lorenzo Lippi posted this Embergher quartino on Embergher Facebook group. He...
  3. Re: Roman quartino (piccolo mandolin) by Embergher ?

    Your photos above do not show up. The Pecoraro terzino has a fully-detailed scratchplate (scrolls) which was characteristic of the 5bis concert instruments.

    Re: 1920ish Martin built? For S.S. Stewart

    I agree. Not a Martin. Weymann did use front mounted tuners FWIW.

    Re: Interesting CNC violin build

    Interesting. These sped-up videos make me more than a little nervous but that is just me.

    He says he used regular wood glue instead of hide glue but I wonder why. He does say that he knows it will...
  6. Re: Roman quartino (piccolo mandolin) by Embergher ?

    It definitely is Roman style but I would say unlikely made in the Embergher shop. Most of the details don't match up to Embergher instruments I have seen. Scratchplate design is amateurish, headstock...
  7. Re: Feedbacks on my F Mandolin and complete gear :)

    Very major upgrade and thorough review. I didn’t understand this point about the case:

    Re: Mando/ Harp WW2 Fell apart

    A tenor harp is really either a tenor banjo with a wooden soundboard or a tenor guitar with a banjo-shaped body.

    He also wants it to be a Cousenon, not a Couesnon. :)

    Re: Grandfathers Gibson A3 Mandolin

    My first Gibson was a 1919 A-3 whiteface. It was the best sounding A-model on Mandolin Brothers’ wall. Excellent sounding. Best of luck in restoring it and I hope you will play it as well. So cool...

    Re: Absolute Silence

    That looks pretty nifty but would it work just as well to slip foam under the strings near the bridge?

    Re: Pretty Bowlback Naples 1900-ish

    It could be a genuine non-DeMeglio Since it definitively has traits. On the other hand it also has some non-traits that could easily lead us to a genuine non-Larson. :)

    Re: Pretty Bowlback Naples 1900-ish

    Do we know that this is not a DeMeglio? In any case it has the patent stamp so possibly design was licensed by DeMeglio. It has the behind bridge tensioner and the slotted side vents, same headstock...
  18. Re: High carbon plain strings for E and D pairs?

    My favorite strings for vintage bowlbacks are Dogal Calace roundwound RW92 and 92b. I believe they are carbon steel.

    Re: For the adventurous builder

    that is pretty thin for a mandolin top. And if they need to add epoxy then why not use plastic for the pickguard? There must be some use. I wonder if they can process thicker pieces.

    Re: Absolute Silence

    I think most violin mutes clip over the top of the bridge and a violin mute is much thinner than the top of a mandolin bridge. Too bad about that. There is a heavy violin mute Made of metal that...

    Re: Octave Mando Tunings

    I think the idea is that you use the D'Addario mandola set but still keep it in GDAE octave tuning.

    I think the heavier strings will drive the top better for tone and volume and the shorter scale...
