  3. Re: 1923 Lloyd Loar Previously Owned by Joe Val For Sale

    It´s a great mandolin. I´ve played it. It gave me a serious hearing adjustment towards other instruments. I´d have no qualms to own it.

    The owner is a nice guy. I hope his health concerns are not...
  4. Re: 1923 Lloyd Loar Previously Owned by Joe Val For Sale

    OMG -- Joe Val, then with the Charles River Valley Boys, is probably the reason I play the mandolin (other than "inheriting" a Gibson A-1 from my grandfather's attic). I watched him many a time at...

    First he and Tony's EMD blew my head off, then he showed me the way to Barstow while Janice was cooking in the background.

    Re: If You Are Able…

    Good ideas, NursingDaBlues. I think playing in the street or backyard (if it will ever quit raining everyday) would be fun and potentially entertaining. But sadly, like Gelsenbury, I am just not...

    Re: If You Are Able…

    I agree, I’d just add that it’s ‘physical’ distancing rather than ‘social’ distancing.
    Because at times like this we need to be socially closer, which we can be, without necessarily be physically...

    I don't know if THIS story from the UK has been posted already - forgive me if it has. A touching gesture directed toward the memory of a musical friend.

    Ok everyone else thought this too, don't say you didn't. It is meant in fun as a musician joke. "They're both professional musicians? Good thing you got used to supporting them early on...."

    Brozman's book puts Ser.#305 as 1928, first year they were manufactured. Price is competitive, IMHO.
