    Thanks again for sharing your beautiful music! You seem to have an incredible circle of very talented people to collaborate with. Kolkata must be an amazing place.
  2. Re: Unusual Pocket/Travel Mandolin. Any Info on builder?

    Still seeking information. Do these enclosed tuners tell us anything? How about that narrow metal strip between them on the back of the head stock? Shape of the scratch plate? How about the...
  3. Re: Unusual Pocket/Travel Mandolin. Any Info on builder?

    Hi Mandroid,

    Sounds like a good size for bike trips. I had a Weber Sweet Pea but when I found I was playing with others I would meet along the way, it just didn't have enough punch. When I need...

    Hi Mike,

    I think this was before toilet seats made it to the Threatened and Endangered Species list, but I'm not entirely sure. Actually, I wonder if MOTS was used as an 'artistic' choice, or...
  5. Re: Unusual Pocket/Travel Mandolin. Any Info on builder?

    I think this one is of European origination, Allen. Not sure though. I was hoping one of our experts would know something about it. The owner was an immigrant to the US from Italy, I believe.
  6. Re: Unusual Pocket/Travel Mandolin. Any Info on builder?

    Actually Jim, I'm hoping Poul will chime in. He's another one who appreciates these little instruments.
  7. Re: Unusual Pocket/Travel Mandolin. Any Info on builder?

    And a few more photos. I am pretty intrigued, and glad he told me about it.

  8. Unusual Pocket/Travel Mandolin. Any Info on builder?

    A friend sent me pictures of his Grandfather's mandolin and when I saw them, I knew we had something unusual.

    First, it's a pocket or travel mandolin rather than a full-sized mandolin. The body...

    Re: Nylon-string mandolin

    The late Walt Kuhlman (Gypsy's Music) made two mandolins specifically for nylon strings. I had the pleasure of owning one of them for a time. It was a wonderful instrument. It had fan-bracing like...

    Re: Let's talk small, high-end, acoustic amps

    I love my Schertler Guilia. It has just one input, which is fine for me. My guitar playing duo partner carries his own amp. This amp, more than any other I have used, gives the true sound of the...

    Re: Dolinman X Arko

    I love this music. Although I will probably never get there, I'd love to visit India to take in the music, art and food. Thanks for posting this Diptanshu. Thanks also to Arko.

    Re: My Greatest Regret

    No regrets. They're pointless. We make the best decisions we can at the time given our knowledge and experience. Today is what matters. Make today the best day you can.

    Re: Arch/carved top mandola under 1000$?

    To me, that Eastman is a good value. I wouldn't expect anything more for that money. If I was in the market in that price range, I'd buy one. Just my opinion, YMMV.

    Re: Can anyone recommend a builder to me?

    Also, tell us a little about the mandolin you would like to have built. Some details would get you better advice.

    Re: Would I be happier with a 20s Gibson F4?

    Same for me, Jim. For many of us, the optimum number of mandolins one can own is N+1 where N= the number you currently own. Happiness can be an elusive target but we can still strive toward it, and...

    Re: Would I be happier with a 20s Gibson F4?

    One more option I'd add to the mix; a Mike Black A4-style mandolin. While I'm not in the market for a new mandolin at this time (enjoying my flat-tops), if I was, this is the one I'd buy. Mike is a...

    Re: Walnut Back and Sides Spruce Flat Top Tone

    Now that I think of it, I had a Gypsy's Music (the late Walt Kuhlman) nylon-strung flat-top that had Walnut ribs and back. Really pretty wood and what a nice little instrument that one was. ...
  23. Re: Do you take your best or most valuable mandolin to gigs?

    I have a few mandolins, and none of them are junk instruments, just different, one from another. I take whatever instrument is right for the gig. Sometimes it's my Phoenix Neoclassical, sometimes...

    Re: Walnut Back and Sides Spruce Flat Top Tone

    Hello Colemole,

    I build flat-top mandolins in the 'flatback-style'. I have used several woods for backs and ribs, mostly cherry, black walnut and maple. My observations are based on my mandolin...

    Re: Cafe Classified

    I like it just as it is. I am used to it and don't see any way to make one thing better without making another thing worse. I agree with j4music; If it ain't broke. . .
