    Re: trouble with classified replies

    Wow! Scott was really on top of that. I don't know of any other forum that has such excellent management and support. I think mandolin café is truly a unique site!

    Re: Mandolins as a work of art

    I have a Lyon & Healy Model A. To me it is indeed a work of art in that it is both a beautiful appearing instrument but, most importantly, the sound that it creates is just heavenly. I really don't...

    Re: Thomastiks on a Northfield Calhoun?

    I currently use TI's on all of my instruments. While I absolutely love them, I cannot say I have noticed even the slightest difference in terms of less strain on hand, arm, and shoulder muscles. They...

    Re: Pick Review for an Apollo Casein 1.4mm

    Jake, this was a well thought out, excellent video. I very much enjoy your approach, enthusiasm, sense of fun, and playing. I would likely not pass a blind test on these picks - as I think (for me)...

    Re: Thomastiks on a Collings MT?

    After a year I revisited using TI Starks on my Collings MT2-V. Originally I tried a set while deciding to purchase my Collings. As you can read above, I did not like them. Trying them in a different...

    Beautiful, beautiful mandolin!
  9. Re: Lyon & Healy model A - appreciated more every day

    Hi Jim - I play mine daily. I actually play all three of my mandolins throughout each week but I seem to favor the L&H. Somehow I got lucky with the three instruments I own. Each is a joy. Kinda' put...
  10. Re: Lyon & Healy model A - appreciated more every day

    Hank - although I don't know for sure, I've always assumed that the A, B, and C models were structurally the same with only cosmetic differences. I've assumed the three styles sound and play the same...

    Re: Oval Hole Picking Technique

    Hi Joe - I did mean parallel. Hopefully I understood Parker's question correctly. The first part of the question was whether or not the pick is tilted towards your feet at a 45° angle on the down...

    Re: Oval Hole Picking Technique

    My experience with working through Calace and other classical methods is that great emphasis is put on holding the pick at a 45° angle, gliding through both strings of the course; and stopping the...
  14. Lyon & Healy model A - appreciated more every day

    My 1925 Lyon & Healy model A with TI flat wound strings is SUCH a glorious instrument for classical. Sometimes I just feel the urge to yak about how much joy it brings me. Every note, for my taste,...
  15. Re: The "legitimate classical instrument" thing..

    Thanks to this thread I am hearing the Modern Mandolin Quartet's Americana album for the first time. Dvorak is one of my absolute favorite composers - particularly his quartet and piano works. This...

    Re: New Carlo Aonzo Perfetto Mandolino

    As I find this mandolin a bit intriguing, I sent a note to the luthier. He is incredibly responsive and helpful. I suspect he would be a super person to work with. For those interested, all of the...

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld Strings

    Jim, there are perhaps other TI strings that might work - but I have had no luck trying to get TI to respond to my inquiries. A double set of TI AC112 guitar strings totals to $52 which is about the...

    Re: Vega cylinder back mandola on reverb

    It is indeed a beauty. Bernuzio's told me it was sold which is why it was not on their website and they had forgotten to mark it sold on Reverb. I have never seen a real Vega CB mandola- only an...

    I recently put TI flat wound guitar strings on my Burgin 23" scale Shanghai octave mandolin (.012, .024, .033, .044). I use TI's on my Lyon & Healy, for which they are perfect, and I was curious...
