    Re: poor quality or MAS?

    First of all, welcome here. You're right, there's a subtle difference between round holes vs. F, but you can play any style on any mandolin.

    I agree with the advice so far, especially with giving...

    Re: For John Prine

    Perhaps that's why he has a lot of money. No matter how much you make, you will surely go broke if you have to have the best of everything. I would guess he has some pretty nice stuff though.

    Re: For John Prine

    Joan is such a talent, I was genuinely touched by her tribute to John.

    John has always been on my list of top talents, he has such a way to convey complex issue into simple words we all can...

    Re: Informal Poll

    I doubt very much that I'll ever buy another mandolin, I have two very nice F5's, a Harvey era Gibson and an Apitius.

    But if I were to buy another one, I would probably sell both my F5's, my Les...

    Re: I Miss Playing Live!

    Thanks to all who have read, and for the responses.

    I don't in any way wish to imply that my situation is bad. So far my health is OK, and I'm not threatened financially. I know there are many who...

    I Miss Playing Live!

    Most of my friends won't relate to this because they aren't musicians, but one of the things I miss most right now is not playing live music. Sure, it was only in the choir. But we practiced at least...

    Re: Reading suggestions

    I LOVED this book, could not put it down. I even bought a couple of copies as birthday gifts.
  10. Re: Washington Square | The Village Stompers

    In November of 63 I was 9 years old, but I don't remember this song. I can remember lots of other songs from that time, but who knows if I remember them from when they were hits, or just hearing them...

  12. Washington Square | The Village Stompers

    We just finished watching Stephen King's series "The Outsider" on HBO, worth watching if you like Stephen King. The song Washington Square is mentioned in an important scene, then played at the end....

    Re: Any new pedals for multi-instrumentalists?

    I just purchased the ToneDexter, and so far I'm really, really pleased. I've tired several pickups and three or four preamps, and nothing comes close. It has the capacity for 22 different wavemaps,...

    Re: not counting but

    I've only owned 5 mandolins in my life, and still have 3 of them. Not bad for 35 years.

    Don't get me started on guitars, let's just say I've gone through a bunch. Most of which weren't very good....
  15. Re: Anybody planting trees? Share your stories!

    We need to be careful with this thread as it could easily go sideways.

    The best advice I've heard is to plant trees for the next generation. Meaning if you plant a slow growth tree as an adult,...
  16. Re: To the multi instrumentalists: which instrument is your no. 1

    I used to joke that I can play "Oh! Susanna!" on at least 7 different instruments, none of which were a banjo on my kneee.

    But in actuality the only two I ever really play now are the mandolin and...

    Re: Gravity and mando case surprise...

    I always like reading stories like these where the case did its job. I can see how it could have been much worse, it sounds like there was quite a bit of force on your F9.

    I agree with you about...

    Re: Pickup or microphone?

    Very good advice. I've played with an internal K&K pickup through a Baggs Venue DI box into the mixer for quite a while now. This is in a choir setting for a 300 seat church. We usually have 2-3...

    Re: Pickup or microphone?

    This is a good question, one that every one who plays live has to face at some point. I would first ask you what kind of music are you playing and in what settings?

    For instance, if you're playing...

    Thanks Eoin. That's pretty much what I was thinking after reading everything twice. But you have to admit, the website does seem to be a bit contradictory.
