    Re: Seagull S8

    Here are a couple of threads on Seagull mandolins.
    I have one and I think it's pretty good.

    Re: Instrument swap?

    Having said all that, we once swapped houses with a family in France for three weeks.
    It's not for everybody of course, but it can work to both parties' advantage.

    Personally I would only...

    It's great to hear him still playing so well, and so unmistakenly Dawg.
  8. Re: Wanting to try a cittern (esp. Nordwall) in California/West C

    Hi Patrick,
    I remember the thread about Nordwall building your cittern and I have wondered how that worked out. Pretty well, by the sound of it.
    How do you tune it?

    I'm really looking forward to this.
    It will be the fourth time I've done a workshop in the Aberdeen area. There are some very good players around there. Here is a picture from the first one in...
  13. Re: Was the mandolin played in traditional folk before Bill Monro

    Bill's earliest recordings seem to be about 1937, so most of the folk music local people would play in their own areas before then would not have been documented much and probably never recorded.

    Re: Octave Mandolin History

    Thanks Marty.

    It's interesting to see that the 'modern cittern' pictured in your Sobell article only has 8 strings (as opposed to 10).

    Re: CBOMS in Ireland

    Have a look at Moloneys music shop in Galway.
    They seem to sell instruments made by a couple of local Irish luthiers plus some by a Portuguese maker, which look quite good value on the face of it.
