    Re: Mandocello Mystery of the Dead C Strings

    I can certainly procure something in the range of 60 or 62, but 56 is what I have in the building at the moment.

    Re: Mandocello Mystery of the Dead C Strings

    Well, I can confirm it was strung with either suspension-bridge cables or the D'Addario set, take your pick. I'm going to go 56-42-32-20 and maybe let it sit a day or two before bringing it up to...

    Re: Mandocello Mystery of the Dead C Strings

    Yes, I can make up a flatwound set with D'Addario chromes and use .065 for the C strings -- but I think I'll experiment with phosphor bronze roundwounds first; they are cheaper.

    Re: Mandocello Mystery of the Dead C Strings

    Well, I used the D'Addarios on a 1917 K1 for a number of years with no problem, but this '12 might be more delicate. I use 70-46-32-20 on my Steve Andersen but it has a truss rod.

    Re: Mandocello Mystery of the Dead C Strings

    I don't know exactly what gauges are on it, but I'll get the calipers out and measure. I have most gauges sitting about up to .056, but after that the next heaviest I have is .070.

    Re: Mandocello Mystery of the Dead C Strings

    I did check the brace and it doesn't seem amiss. But it has been mighty warm by Pacific Northwest standards and the action does seem to have climbed up a bit.

    Re: Mandocello Mystery of the Dead C Strings

    Hm. Well, it's a 1912 and has what I think is the original 1-piece bridge with removable ebony saddles that sit in a slot running the length of the bridge ... and it looks like there's a bit of a gap...

    Mandocello Mystery of the Dead C Strings

    I have a vintage Gibson K2 mandocello that I thought was all set up and ready. I pull it out tonight and discover that something's wrong with the C course: suddenly both strings buzz a lot and have...

    That depends. There are at least five distinct models of Kent e-mandos; not all of them have the long scale or the screw-on tailpiece cover.

    If you can find me a photo of Gate with a mandolin or mandola of any kind, please pass it along. He's credited with mandola on his Black Jack album.

    Whether this is a good deal depends on which model is being offered. Do you have photos?

    I love that this ad includes the original $886.89 sales invoice from 2010. That mandolin was quite the investment!

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    I love the "Siminoff" on the headstock ... that's a sick burn.

    It looks kind of like a James Docy but even more hastily assembled.

    I didn't actually work on this one. But yes, we have Man with Stick (actually he doesn't use a baton) and perhaps we should include him on the next one.

    Yes, all this was patiently edited together after the fact, and yes, it was a chore.

    Re: Recognize this one?

    It was listed on both CL and eBay simultaneously. Seller may be hoping for a local sale. Reneging on the eBay transaction doesn't exactly project an aura of trustworthiness.
