    Or maybe a case of you get what you pay for? It was worth £3, though!

    Ceccherini

    Don't know whether I'm allowed to post this, but I've just reduced the price of my vintage Ceccherini in classifieds, originally posted March 22. Someone should be able to give it a good home! Ad...

    Re: The Dark Side (Banjo)

    You can always try a mandolin banjo. Same fingering as mandolin, but gives a banjo sound and LOUD if you want it to be! I recently bought a new one, made in the UK, but I hear there are plenty of...

    I've tried using a coin when I couldn't find a pick. Don't really recommend it!

    Mandolin Banjos Group

    Sorry to dare to utter the dreaded ‘B’ (for banjo) word on the Forum. I sincerely hope it won’t evoke a torrent of scorn! I already owned two mandolins (see my signature below) but, yes, I...

    Re: New Gig: Restaurant Mandolinist

    Think, Elvis-"It's Now or Never" (for O Sole Mio) and make sure you don't swivel the hips too much!

    And for Return to Sorrento, think Elvis "So My Darling Please Surrender"

    With all these...

    Re: Chris Thile Signing Mandolins?

    Earlier this year I asked on the Forum "Do I need a bowlback?" It sparked a lively discussion and I soon decided that I did need a bowlback. I bought a vintage Ceccherini restored by Forum member...

    Re: Adding picking to my strumming

    Same here. In fact, I've never been a fan of chord playing whether on guitar, banjo or mandolin. I find a melody much more satisfying to play and far easier on the ear. Picking a tune I know well by...

    Well done on getting a bowlback. Lots of stuff about these lovely old instruments on the Forum, most importantly how to hold them! You will find the effort well worth it.

    Re: First Mandolin Questions

    I've been happy with my Eastman 305, which I've had for two or three years now, and I'm sure other Forum members will say they like theirs, too. It is a mandolin that always gets a vote of approval.
