    Re: New case day - Hoffee

    Is the Hoffee made of carbon fiber and is it lighter than the Caltons?

    Most of my mandolins are in TKL or similar. Not real need that I can see for a more protective case than those.

    Re: aging fingers just can't cut it anymore

    Or check the set up on your mandolin and possibly use lighter strings with lower action.

    Or before the grass grows over the case and you might not find that mandolin. :)

    I am a few years older than you. I have noticed that I am slowing down and probably can't quite play as accurately as I used to especially at break neck speeds. OTOH I think you might just give...

    Re: The new ‘ukelele’

    I am away from my computer but my guess would be Stridente. IIRC they usually have round labels. I love those darkish brown buttons on the tuners. My de-accessed DeMeglio had those.

    Re: I Just Bought A Violin

    Well I have been playing fiddle for almost fifty years and I can say it is a very demanding instrument. I can let mandolin sit in its case for a week or two and then pick it up and play pretty...

    AFAIK the Bretons speak their own language so French would be just as foreign to them as English at least back when this tune was composed.
