    Re: DW Stevens reverse mandolin.

    All mandolins are like that south of the equator.

    semi-deleted for lack of originality and attribution. but that does not make it untrue.
  2. Re: 2nd Mandolin. Ellis? Gibson? Clark? Weber?

    I am very partial to Webers, especially those with Bruce Weber's signature on the label. The sound will be warmer than your Collings, which will make a good complement to the Collings sparkle.
  3. Re: Does anyone have experience or advice about finger rehabilita

    Steve, I'm thinking of you and cheering your progress. Thanks for the update.
  4. Re: How often should my mandolin need to be tuned?

    Since this thread seems have covered the bases re the OP's question, I don't mind going OT and saying that there actually was such a thing as an "electronic tuner" back then. Our symphonic band...
  5. Re: How often should my mandolin need to be tuned?

    Also, as a matter of physics, mandolin strings have a relatively short vibrating length. Thus relatively small changes in temperature, top deflection, etc, have bigger effect compared to a banjo.

    Re: he's at it again

    Re: Playing a triplet over 2 quarter notes.

    i know this is not terribly helpful, but I grew up in the south and I call this construct a "mosey" - kind of a drug out triplet. That's the way I play it, too. Tom's explanation makes more sense,...

    Re: Howe-Orme mandolin video

    A few minutes ago the thought hit me that I had listened to the whole video with interest but I don't remember hearing the word "mandolinetto". So is that a word that was used when these instruments...

    Stable Cracks

    I have seen the phrase "stable crack" used fairly often, often in "for sale" ads. But I confess that when I think about the phrase I have difficulty understanding just exactly what it means.

    How...

    Re: Weber Yellowstone Experts

    March, 2005. last 2 digits = month. first digit = year-2000 for seven digit s/n's.

    I do like it. I trust it has that Weber-y sound with added oval-holiness.

    Re: Shaving bridge feet

    I would use 100 grit to remove wood, then follow with 220 grit to smooth it out.

    Re: Weber Yellowstone Transformation

    Two things I am curious about:
    a) what year was your Yellowstone made?
    b) I am surprised that it had polyurethane or that it was so thick.

    If the year is unknown, it can be determined from the...
  17. Re: What Are Some Good Options in the $2-3k range?

    Oh jeez. That is a scary story. I feel sad for you and for TMS both.
  18. Re: What Are Some Good Options in the $2-3k range?

    I'd love to hear a sound sample, too!

    Congrats on the new mando!
  19. Re: Tone differences between Yellowstone A and Yellowstone 2 poin

    I currently have the three Weber models you mention. The A and F are very similar sounding. If you have played a Weber, you know they all seem mellow in comparison to, say, a Collings. But they still...

    With all respect to the two very knowlegeable luthiers above, I offer my non-expert opinion derived from my having worked on several Brekke Traditional bridges on my own Webers.

    Re: Tailpiece detail
