    Re: Stolen - Weber Fern A-style - Oakland, CA

    Hopefully you find it again. I would check pawn shops in your county and surrounding counties, also places like instant cash shops (they often accept musical instruments.)

    Re: We're not so weird...

    Hey, you can collect belly button lint if you want too (and I bet someone does! LOL!!) We could also collect boats, antique cars, or airplanes (much more expensive!)
  4. Re: How did you feel about your new build Mando?

    If you aren't sure quite what you would want, after no longer being "thrilled" with my starter mandolin, I called The Mandolin Store (NFI) and told them what I was looking for in a mandolin, and they...

    Re: New to the cafe

    Keep trying. I took up mandolin in my late 50s after starting guitar in my early teens-20s, then the guitar got put away for lots of years of family/life in the way. Picked guitar back up, then fell...

    When he calls it "beloved," I think you are probably getting a very nice mandolin also! :mandosmiley:
  7. Re: Fratelli Tassinari (Napoli) -Help with Info and Value

    Plus it looks like it has a pretty decent crack in the top - don't know if it is cleated or not. And the headstock looks to be broken, repairs could be a bit pricey. If it is sentimental, worth...

    Re: Storage: Case vs Hanging on the Wall

    Cases for all of my instruments for several reasons - 1) My mother did not name me "Grace" for a reason, 2) Cats, 3) Dogs, 4) Kids, 5) Murphy's Law. If any of my instruments would have an accident,...

    It is handwritten, so I guess anyone could have written it any time. I am presuming it is accurate, but may not be.

    Re: I just want to know the year

    I have a Lyon and Healy bowlback that looks like a twin to your mandolin - my label says 1902.

    Re: Soft Picks ?

    Try a Casein pick - I got one, and it took a bit of the "brightness" off of my Collings for those occasions when I want a little less.
  12. Re: If you could have any mandolin in the world….

    If I suddenly became independently wealthy, I would add a 1920s or 1930s Gibson A, an approximately 1900 Italian made bowlback, or an Ellis A5, just because I could. I truly don't need to add any...

    Re: Lateral Upgrade?

    I've never played an Eastman or a Silver Angel (I live in a mandolin desert,) but I own a Collings, they are pretty bright (compared to my Pava and Weber) but it is right up there in quality with the...

    Looks like some Suzukis I have seen advertised, but I can't be sure. Maybe someone else can comment.

    I don't ever stop looking, but I have quit buying - my 3 main mandolins are better than I ever will be, they will never "hold me back" in my attempts to progress, and all 3 have different tone but...

    Re: Mandolin care??

    I occasionally wipe a little dust off under the strings with an old sock turned inside out, and the fretboard when I change strings, but since they live in their cases, they don't get very dirty.

    So very true - sometimes scales and other exercises are just what you need, work with a metronome, no slowing down on the hard parts, get everything back to "crisp and clean!" No more "passes" for...
