    Re: Eva Scow - After You've Gone

    You might have heard of her as part of the 'Tone Poets. project David Grisman did.

    Here is a thread from 2006 about her involvement in that....

    Yes, fantastic. I've heard this track actually, although I was unaware that you had any involvement in this CD. Now that, to my mind is very good tone on the mandolin, so the pick is certainly part...

    "Still making beautiful and meaningful sounds after changing the face of acoustic music forever".

    Exactly. Happy Birthday indeed, and thank you.
  6. Re: Stefan Sobell mandolins and other instruments

    Looks great.

    Cedar top, I would say? That's what mine both have, with rosewood.

    I have never got the impression that many instrument makers were particularly wealthy people. I should think if they charged by the hour for what they do, plus paid for materials etc and factored in...

    Great tune.

    I recorded it on the CD I made with my son Colin, 'Like Father Like Son'.

    They were great. Here's a video of Irish guitarists Arty McGlynn and Paul Brady playing a couple of Yamaha FG 180s.

    Re: Samick acoustic guitar

    Only last week I picked up a Yamaha FG-200 for 60 in a charity shop. I spent another 10 getting the action and saddle tweaked and it's quite a good little guitar. Loud, good tone, plays easily,...

    Re: looking for a travel mando

    I've been pretty pleased with my Seagull S8. It's small enough to put in my carry-on backpack and still have enough room for clothes etc - so only one item of luggage.
    I've travelled to New Zealand,...

    Re: Andrew York. Home.

    Here is Andrew's video. I did have a quick go at this piece this morning. I think it will work quite well on my 10 string mandolin

    Re: Andrew York. Home.

    Hi Mandrian,

    Slightly strangely I have also been listening to Andrew York recently and have seen his video of Home. I haven't tried to play it on mandolin, however.

    Your video won't play on my...
  15. Kaki King playing Veillette Gryphon high-strung 12 string guitar

    Not a mandolin, but there are obvious similarities with the double strings and high sound.
    I think this combination of Kaki King and South African guitarist Guy Buttery is very effective.

    Re: Seagull S8 Owners Thread

    Yes, I must admit that I don't like changing the strings on the S8. I don't think there is any alternative to bending the strings, and giving the string a good tug to help it grip once you've managed...

    I definitely would not buy the Stagg. The company make fairly good things like microphone stands, instrument cases etc, but in my experience (and I have seen quite a lot of them) their mandolins are...

    Re: Freshwater Instruments close down

    I must say I do find it very peculiar that this thread has been revived after so long when you know that Mr Freshwater has passed away (some time ago).


    Why?

    Interesting post Bill.

    I know what you mean, but perhaps you could clarify?

    Re: Best Celtic Mandolin around ~500($700)?

    No I wouldn't say so. I have a fairly large bodied 10 string mandolin by Stefan Sobell. It hasn't stopped me playing smaller instruments, or indeed bigger ones like octave mandolin or tenor banjo....
