  1. Re: looking to try some mandos out in fredricsburg va.

    Definitely head to Pickers- they don’t have the best selection of non-vintage high end in the world, but it’s certainly miles better than Guitar Center.

    Re: Wearing a watch and RH anchor

    Thanks for all the helpful replies- sounds like I need to make double-plus sure my anchor is right (I feel like I'm almost muting the G course with the heel of my hand, under my thumb, under the...

    Re: Wearing a watch and RH anchor

    I'll admit there's a bit of first-world-problems going on here... it's an Apple Watch, face out, so not only does it feel strange on the other wrist, but my right hand has NO idea how to work it....

    Wearing a watch and RH anchor

    I'm left handed, and wear my watch on my right wrist, but play mandolin (and everything else, really) right handed. I'm doing the Mike Marshall lessons through Artist Works, and he's mentioned I need...
  5. Re: New (to me) family American Conservatory mandolin questions

    All, thanks again for the help here. I went ahead and bit the bullet, and got the Eastman case. The mandolin itself has been to the luthier, who said it just needed cleaned and restrung! It’s a fun...

    That’s the very choice I’m struggling through now. I think between that, and the generally... interesting... nature of Hobgoblin USA’s e-commerce solution, I may justbbite the bullet on the Eastman...

    Re: Jams around Fredericksburg, Virginia

    I guessed that'd be no small part of it- although that's store is shockingly dangerous to my wallet, and is how I ended up with a MicroBass in the house...!



    I'll admit to a strong desire to...

    Thanks- this is TREMENDOUSLY helpful!
  10. Re: New (to me) family American Conservatory mandolin questions

    I suppose I should've asked in the previous: for American Conservatory mandolins, does anyone have a sense of if I be worried about the fit in any of the above cases? From previous threads, I...
  11. Re: New (to me) family American Conservatory mandolin questions

    Jim, I think I found it in a thread you replied to from circa 2005, but I found another alternative hard-sided case available in the US- a Viking Standard, from Hobgoblin USA.

    Added to the Eastman...

    Jams around Fredericksburg, Virginia

    I think I'm almost ready to look for somewhere to play with others in public (already make a lot of noise with the family, but that's another story!), and am looking for things around the...
  13. Re: New (to me) family American Conservatory mandolin questions

    I went ahead and asked them if they had any dealers in the US- and heard back almost instantly from the CEO. Unfortunately, the answer is no, but I was impressed with how fast they answered the...
  14. Re: New (to me) family American Conservatory mandolin questions

    Thanks for the help- I've found GHS 240s mentioned very frequently in other threads and conversations about bowlbacks, so I think that's the first thing I'll pull the trigger on.
  15. Re: New (to me) family American Conservatory mandolin questions

    Thanks for the detailed reply- apologies for seeding so many questions in a wall of text! I'd managed to get to 1900-1920, but didn't know enough about the instrument to have an idea of grade or...
  16. Re: New (to me) family American Conservatory mandolin questions

    Those foam cases look like they’d be ideal- a pity it doesn’t look like they have any in their current stock! I’d found mention of the chipboard and RockBag; off to see if I can’t find a dealer for...
  17. Re: New (to me) family American Conservatory mandolin questions

    I’m realizing I haven’t seen any gig bags that indicated they’d work for bowlback- are there ones known to work, or am I just not reading item descriptions carefully enough?

  19. New (to me) family American Conservatory mandolin questions

    I picked up the mandolin this August, and have been very happy with my little Eastman. My grandmother found out what Id been up, and gave me her old one as well- an American Conservatory bowlback,...
