    I own Wiens #35; you can see it in the Mandolin Archive Wiens section and my comments in the thread that Mike Edgerton linked. Absolutely terrific sounding on lows and highs and everything in...

    Re: Mike Marshall or Sharon Gilchrist?

    Alan,

    That reminds me of what Norman Blake was quoted as asking somewhere: "How much time have you spent behind the box, son?"

    Re: Underrated Players?

    "Underappreciated" perhaps, rather than "underrated" for nearly everyone named here.

    Frank Wakefield, three more times.

    Re: NonCountry Bluegrass suggestions?

    I never lose an opportunity to praise Jack Tottle's amazing Back Road Mandolin, and it reminds me that it's time for my annual note to Rounder Records pleading, begging, demanding that they release...

    Re: Wiens mandolins

    I wonder why Carter Vintage lists this as 2012. It looks to me to be Wiens #37 (2013) as listed by Dan B. in the Mandolin Archive:http://www.mandolinarchive.com/wiens/serial/37

    Re: Ludwig Van Beethhoven

    For several decades now Frank Wakefield has played the Beethoven Andante con Variazioni (WoO 44) in concert. One nice touch is that he would have the banjo doing the keyboard plinky plinky parts. It...
  9. Re: Anyone know the history of Loar price changes?

    Well, sometime around 1980 when I was taking lessons from Frank Wakefield in Oakland, CA, he said that someone had offered him $10,000 for his Loar--and he was amazed at that high price. But he kept...

    RickieK and Skip: thanks. Now that I listen to it again, of course that's it.

    Alan: you're wrong.

    Re: Makers getting Top Dollar

    So a new Jamie Wiens (whose #35 I own; http://www.mandolinarchive.com/wiens/serial/35) is a pretty good bargain at these prices: http://wiensmandolins.com/
  13. The Brewster Brothers, "I'll Be Happy in My Home"

    First off, I'll bet a dollar that AlanN can answer this one.

    The old Rounder "Early Days of Bluegrass" series on LP, Volume 2 (the yellow one with a very young Frank Wakefield in the middle on the...
  14. Re: If I Could Only Listen To One Player.

    Frank Wakefield. And then Jack Tottle every other day.
  15. Re: No sir. You don't need an F mandolin...

    Thanks, DN. I don't know how I ever missed that thread of yours.
  16. Re: No sir. You don't need an F mandolin...

    Thomas,
    What's the source of that photo? I've never seen that. To think that he had a Loar-era snakehead long before he had a Loar-era F5. Amazing.

    Re: Wiens mandolins
