    Re: Hello, first time player here

    Being a piper, you may already be aware of www.thesession.org, but if not, they maintain a great repository of Celtic tunes with both the dots and ABC notation. Another great resource is Baron...

    Thank you, Eastman

    On Saturday (three days ago) I unpacked a five year old Eastman mandola that I purchased used. Tuning it up, I noticed a problem with the bridge saddle intonation cuts. Saturday night I contacted...

    Re: The Magic 200

    Well said, and a good reminder to me as to why I fumble my way through tunes that I thought I had "learned". Thank you.

    Re: Waiting for UPS

    Well, I have already stomped all over Doug's thread, so I'll just say I would trade several of what I presume is in my box for what was in his box. And I'm not talking about the ghost f@rts.

    Re: Waiting for UPS

    Oh lordie, there must be a cubic yard of peanuts (ghost toots) in that box.

    And the case feels cold. I'm gonna have to wait before I open it any further.

    I'm gonna be awful tired of that...

    Re: Waiting for UPS

    Looking out my window (four minutes after the 2-hour window) I have seen Fed Ex trucks go by three times and the USPS vehicle twice., along with a few bicyclers and dogwalkers.

    Re: Waiting for UPS

    I got a two hour window from UPS for their estimated delivery time. I have 11 minutes left in that window. Please, somebody, play the jingle.

    8 minutes: Play it again!

    I have seen the same thing for quite some time. What works for me (using Chrome browser, Windows 10, all up to date) is to right click on the Additional Information button and then select Open in New...

    Re: E string constantly breaking

    Interestingly (to me anyway), I have broken a few E strings while loosening them relatively rapidly. On one mandolin where this happened, I was taking the tension off because I suspected the nut...

    Re: NMD 1989 Flatiron Performer A

    Spencer, I snagged a 1994 Flatiron Festival A from Bozeman, MT about a month ago and I love it. I think that would be after Gibson bought the company. But it sounds better to my ear than any Gibson I...

  15. Re: The Long Lost Mandolin Cafe Time Wasters Page

    "Long Lost"? If I didn't know it was there, how could it be lost?

    But if it is subsequently "found" anyway, I would have to say that is just amazingly graceful.

    I did have fun wasting some time...
  16. Re: An idea that does not NOT need to be revived

    Ouch. I wonder what would be the Mando o'Shame? I am thinking of maybe an Antonio Tsai that has been stored out in the garage for a few years - twisted neck, half the inlay gone. Superglue the...

    Re: Three Mandolin Sound Test

    Well, I too like the RV first, the Coleman second, the seagull third. But if I needed a mandolin quick, could play it with a bag over it, and was strapped for cash, I might go with the Seagull.

    Just curious -- what does one do with a plectrum banjo? Where does it fit? It is basically a five string banjo without the fifth string, right? Is there a genre or culture where a pb is the must have...

    Too bad Gator doesn't make a piano case. Angela Hewitt really needed one a few weeks ago. Her $200k piano was dropped - total loss.

    Re: Gravity and mando case surprise...

    Don, I'm glad you didn't break a limb. And glad the instruments are OK. I have a Gator and for my light usage of it, I like it a lot.

    It's bittersweet to see Ivan's posts in this thread. I miss...
