    Re: Which bridge?

    My fingers get sore just looking at those knurled nuts! Why don’t they use hex nuts like Vern Brekke does? (Another choice for you—Brekke traditional. You can adjust next nuts while strung up.)

    Re: Damaged Martin 2-20 ( I think)

    “If it came to me, I would convert it to an oval hole.”

    Man, that sounds like a great idea! With a carved top, right? Does a Martin oval-hole like that exist?

    Re: Restored Gibson A jr on FB marketplace

    Some very odd string spacing at the bridge, if you ask me. Like a nice blue zither.

    Re: Useful Tip For Changing Strings

    Same here, actually. Adding the capo has no downside. Just assistance.

    Useful Tip For Changing Strings

    If you are like me (and I know I am), changing strings on your mandolin is not your favorite task. I’ve been doing it successfully for 40 years, or so, but I often wish I had a third hand (one that...

    Re: Counting Tree Growth Lines ?

    Thanks for all that info!

    I think it’s been settled that you can’t very easily determine the age of mandolin wood by counting the annular rings. All I meant to add to the conversation is the point...

    Re: Counting Tree Growth Lines ?

    I posted earlier (#6) regarding the age of wood near the center of a tree vs wood near the edge. Say you had a tree with 200 annular rings. The “tree” is obviously 200 years old...BUT the outermost...

    Re: Counting Tree Growth Lines ?

    The more lines on a piece of tone wood (or any wood, I guess), the greater difference in age between one edge and the other. Outside rings are newer growth and could be much younger than inside...

    To A Higher Standard

    Not quite sure where this thread should go, but this seems like a good choice.

    My youngest son played percussion in his high school band (and later graduated from Berklee College of Music). At one...

    Re: Natural talent vs practice

    Now that I think about it, I bet that the more natural talent one has, the more they want to practice. If I acquired a sudden burst of talent, I don’t think I could put my mandolin down. Even now, if...

    I doubt that any of us believe that the best player in the world is the one who practices the most. Of course it takes talent and practice. Seems to me it is a question of how far can I take my...

    Re: Natural talent vs practice

    I have “some” natural talent. I think it usually takes some to keep someone at it, but I’m 71 and I’m positive that all the practice I’ve done (a LOT) hasn’t made me 10% as good as Sierra Hull (or...
