    Re: F5 with an OVAL hole?

    This would have been my dream mando! Long neck oval-hole without tubbiness. Amazing work!

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    How would you describe the tone of the WL-M?

    I tend to favor oval-holes (specially with flatwound strings), and chunky necks.

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    So I’ve been searching for a depression era flat top and ran into this thread.

    A couple questions for owners of one..

    Is the body really 2 1/8” deep?

    Also how does it sound?

    I’m looking...

    It’s fossilized walrus ivory. It’s a saddle I had from another project that found its home on the Draleon.

    Re: Well this isnít good..

    Bob, thanks for the kind words. Really appreciate that.

    This does give me the excuse to have a full contact base bridge made by Cumberland Acoustics.
    Just don’t feel safe using that stock bridge...

    Well this isnít good..

    While I was doing the annual string change (flatwound player) and deep cleaning of my mando I noticed two indentions in the top. Sure enough when looking at the stock bridge base it looks like the...

    Re: One Mandolin - forever...

    The maker is Century Strings. I emailed them about a case for this (as the one it came in was old and had seen better days) and they never got back to me.

    I don’t know if that means they aren’t...

    Re: One Mandolin - forever...

    Tim,
    Here’s what I’ve noticed so far from owning it. It has a fuller tone across all strings and extremely well balanced.

    How it compares to an oval hole: It doesn’t have the tubiness of an...

    Re: One Mandolin - forever...

    I started my mandolin journey back in 2014, and have been on the search for mando with the sound in my head. Been through a few (sadly none have been very high end mandos) and I think I found it.

    Playing Solo..

    Has someone done/or seen a mandolinist play solo without any accompanying instruments.

    I’ve seen classical mandolin done solo and it sounds amazing (Mike Marshall, Chris Thile), but was wondering...

    Such a great arrangement!
  22. Re: Gloss or Satin finish? Sound difference?
