    Re: China mandolin supply

    Almost everything that's imported is likely to see a slowdown in availability and the good news is that includes banjos.

    Re: Looking for something darker and throatier

    For 5k-ish I'd be looking at a used Ellis A model. They are on the darker, bassier side of traditional.

    Re: Rest in Peace - Byron Berline passes

    Very sad news, indeed. Here is Byron with The Flying Burrito Bros- taking a neat fiddle solo. This song with an almost identical rendition appeared on The Last of the Red Hot Burritos the same year...
  7. Re: Northfield Airloom Deluxe case 2.0 - what was improved?

    Couple things:

    Thanks for the question and input. We designed this case to be a nod to the original vintage oblong cases with improvements to storage and strength. ItÂ’s not the most streamlined...

    Regardless of one’s personal convictions, I have to agree with the viewpoint of an inappropriate political topic, especially as the headliner. “ Topics started for or end up being used to discuss...

    Re: Kentucky 272 and my big problem

    Well I couldn't resist. Pulled the trigger on a 272 from The Mandolin Store. Will report when it arrives!

    Re: Italian Mandolin music being forgotten ???

    Here's some preview of the album, after about 40 minutes of...other stuff. I think the reason we don't hear much of the italian mandolin is that it takes a stone cold virtuoso to play it. Guggino is...

    Re: Kinda NMD

    Thanks.

    Yesterday I took off the pickup and put a bit of spirit varnish over the open wound - may try to put some color there someday. The frets were pretty gouged (my friend was primarily a bass...

    Re: New Chris Thile album

    In light of some of the comments, I gave the album a few more listens. I was struck by my absence of emotional reaction, that it didn't move me in any way. I think it is music for the ehad rather...

    Re: New Chris Thile album

    Thile's progressive work is something I want to like more than I do. I tend to blame my ear, though, for not being educated enough to follow where he's trying to take me.

    In a master class he did...

    Re: New Chris Thile album

    I have appreciated everything Chris Thile has done up to now, and of course I am sure he will continue to create incredible music. But this new album was lacking in so many ways. There just aren't...
  16. Re: RSW's Jerry Rosa & The Mysterious Sam Bush Upside-Down Truss

    He put the mandolin back into playing condition, but I believe (not having the instrument in hand but from some experience as restorer) the situation was such that much less invasive method could be...

    First, this video is just one of many where he displays basic misunderstanding of original construction. This is particularly true with vintage instruments. When people offer facts and correction,...

    Re: Cumberland bridge on Loar LM500 ?

    How much variation can there be between different pieces of wood? I’d think that anyone who spends time playing acoustic instruments would realize there’s a lot of variation. If there weren’t, all...

    Re: Question about Collings mandolins

    With all due respect, I would not consider the upper line "The Loar" mandolins to be in the same class as a Collings instrument.

    I know two fellows who worked for Collings. I don't know if...

    Re: Antiqued/distressed instruments?

    The reality is that nobody should care what you do and don't prefer in what an instrument looks, plays, or sounds like. This is a free country. Just don't even attempt to use a capo on a mandolin at...
