    Re: Thile at Carnegie May 8

    It was a great finish to a great residency. I came down from Albany for all five shows.

    "Tomorrow is a Long Time." Just blissful.

    Thile at Carnegie May 8

    Does anyone know for certain what the order is for Thile at Carnegie Hall, May 8.

    Is it Punch Bros first; Nickel Creek second, or the other way around.

    Thx.

    Re: Chris Thile at Carnegie Hall 11/28/18

    I saw the first show from the fifth row and some of the second (I had to catch a train home) from the balcony.

    Humbling. Just humbling.

    I had been a doubter at first (years ago) but I am a true...

    Re: Mandolin Face

    I've been caught grunting on tape, and kind of moaning melodies that having nothing to do with what I'm playing. And my feet do weird things, too. What up with that!?

    I just love that he played so simply. This is nice.

    Re: The Weber Diamondback Octar

    J.C.,

    I'm so jealous. I had my eye on that, but was gathering funds. When I could finally do it, it was gone, at a lower price that I could have afforded a few weeks before!

    Best,
    Michael

    Re: Flatiron OM as mandocello?

    That's the width on mine.

    I want to thank all, as always, for the knowledge. I think I'm going to leave this fine instrument as is!

    Flatiron OM as mandocello?

    Hi All,

    I have an 80s Flatiron 3K Octave Mandolin, with 23 3/8 scale. Can I safely string this as a mandocello? Has anyone tried this with good results? If so, thoughts on best gauges?

    Thank...

    Re: Using effects with the mandolin

    I play acoustic mandolin in most performance situations, but in a trio called Good Things, I solely play electric.

    Current rig is a J.L. Smith 5-string (with Kent Armstrong mini-bucker) into a...

    Re: Favorite Musician's Instrument

    I owned Walter Salas-Humara's 1968 D-18 for many years and recorded a few albums with it. He had used it on a number of the early Silos records, including the RCA debut. In turnabout, Walter played a...

    Re: Talk to me about old National tenors

    Action can be a situation with these old beauties. Surprisingly, even though some can be difficult to play because of high action, many will fret true pretty far up the neck.

    I did not imply any magic in my original post. I have played lots—lots!—of mandolins. When I tried the instrument at Retrofret, with no knowledge that it was a Virzi, I immediately sensed a...

    Re: Played a Virzi

    All points taken, and true. Less volume from the Virzi, and I need that sharpness of sound for the jug band. The Virzi is not a bluegrass sound, but quite lovely; would be great in a chamber-type...
