    Re: 2020 NAMM Show Report

    I believe, as with the violins, there is an option for midi. Not all the violins have midi electronics

    Re: A. Lawrence Smart Mandolins

    It’s also 30 years old, if it truly is from 1990. Generally a used Smart F5 would be around $7k.
  3. Re: New to playing Celtic music but I see its big locally

    Marla Fibish. David Surette. Seamus Egan. You might also listen to tenor banjo players like Gerry O’Conner, John Carty. There’s also Simon Mayor, Andy Irvine, and fiddlers like Kevin Burke, Liz...

    Re: Monteleones in the Denver Area?

    You might try different strings. Something a bit brighter.

    Re: A. Lawrence Smart Mandolins

    The earlier Smart mandolins have stunning voices, most have engelmann tops. The Music Emporium sold a used two point Smart for just under $6k a few months back, so I’d say the price on the A5 in the...

    Re: Monteleones in the Denver Area?

    I had the opportunity to play three at one shop, one in for repairs, two on consignment. Each was different. Two were hardly played, one showed a lot of wear, and while not as attractive as the...

    Glasser, who has been making carbon fiber bows for decades, and really nice carbon fiber violins, violas, and cellos for at least four. Reasonably priced too.

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    It came Monday, which was kinda shocking. Sweetwater generally takes an age. But it is sweet, and I love the color.

    Re: 2020 NAMM Show Report

    Glasser is the US distributor for Larsen. The strings are made by Laurits Larsens’ company in Denmark. They are fairly expensive, but sound great on Glasser’s instruments.

    Re: 2020 NAMM Show Report

    I have two Glasser violins, a four and a five strings. These are great instruments, especially for the money. It’s exciting to hear they are developing a mandolin.
  15. Re: “one announcement we're privy to that will rock the industry”

    Quite a few jazz violinists have started playing Zetas. After Carlson bought Zeta folks began to get more interested. Eileen Ivers has played a Zeta for years. They make acoustic-electric models...

    Damn, now I really want a Zeta.
  18. Re: “one announcement we're privy to that will rock the industry”

    Today electro-acoustic, tomorrow possibly a traditional line of mandolins. Either way, a Zeta mandolin is an attractive alternative to putting a pickup in or on one of my mandolins.

    Jim, it’s the same concept and probably the same technology, adapted to the mandolin. I’ve seen some other designs, but still the same approach isolating the strings. They work amazingly well. All...

    I grabbed a LPB blem off Sweetwater this afternoon. They must have just listed it. It was now or never.
