    Re: Is there a mandolin equivelent out there?

    The best part of that video was the nice high-pitched cello playing in the background. ;)

  4. Re: Classical nerd roll call: Lyon & Healy archtops

    I, too, lust in my heart for a Style A mandola, but practically speaking, cannot justify the expense.

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld string weights

    I'm glad you got your answer. I have no experience with the 174s, other than to try them on mandolas, as I don't have an octave mandolin of any scale right now... I was referring to the 164s being...

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld string weights

    They do make them for octave mandolin, only they're called the Mandola set (174). (For a mandola, you'd want the Alto Mandolin set - 164 -, but they run short, so you'd have to measure your...

    Re: Don't let those mandolins get thirsty

    In my S. Florida house, it's impossible to get the humidity below 60% in the summer, even with the AC running full time. In the master bedroom, which somehow is the most humid room and even worse,...
  9. Re: I put new strings on and positioned the bridge myself

    For me, a string change every three years is quite normal, but I use Thomastiks and don't play exclusively on any one instrument, so they last quite well that long, or even longer. If I'm not...

  11. Re: What's the weirdest MUSICAL thing you've ever done?

    I love that, Bob! You should post some videos! I also love your tagline - I have a sign in my kitchen that says the same thing. ;)

    I caught when you said that you were still a teen. But you do write much better than 95% of your age group. Must be the home schooling! :)

    Re: Fingerstyle mandolin

    My journey into fifths-tuned ukuleles has led me to explore fingerpicking on mandola. Adds another color to the palette, for sure!

    Re: This is mind blowing....

    Was that the point all along, for real? I always wondered what their name meant, but never put 2 and 2 together because the accent on mandarin is on the first syllable, and the accent on mandolin is...

    Re: tenor uke to mandolin tuning

    Tenor ukes work great in CGDA mandola tuning. GDAE, not so much - you need a shorter scale uke.

    Re: Round picks

    Hi Victor, good to "see" you, too! Good points - real music (versus synthetic) includes its many integral extraneous sounds, and each of us has our personal tolerance/annoyance thresholds. The only...

    Re: Round picks

    When I first started my plectrum journey, though I liked their articulation capabilities, I was very clumsy with pointed picks, getting them easily hung up in the strings, so I opted for rounder...

    Re: Timple in 5ths tuning

    Very interesting! I only visited Lanzarote briefly, and of course I didn't know about a long-necked timple - learn something new each day! In that case, I don't know how to attain that tuning. I...

    I prefer side markers only, I don't need them very often, but it's nice to have them there. But I just don't get the ones on the fretboard. If you bend over far enough to see them, you're hurting...
