    Re: Room Humidifier recs

    Well, I probably do want to keep them in a smaller room, but I want to play them in the main space. So I was thinking about trying to humidify both spaces so that the instruments don't receive a...

    Re: Strategies for learning without teachers?

    A big question is how to find other people to play with in these covid days. We got together with my brother and his wife this past weekend, and he brought his guitar. It was indeed very fun, even...

    Re: Room Humidifier recs

    This seems to be the tricky part, then. How do you find a newer humidifier that works with the controller? I found a Vornado Evap40 that does not need to be restarted, but reviews indicate it is not...

    Re: Room Humidifier recs

    Here's another question. If you have one of these humidifiers running through a separate control switch, what happens if the water runs out while you are away? Will it keep running and running until...

    Re: Mandolin Heroes Podcast

    Been meaning to start listening to your podcast, so this reminded me. I listened while I was doing some graphics work, very interesting and enjoyable. My cat came and sat on the adjacent chair. Same...

    Re: Strap for A-style (that old chestnut)

    I bought a used Lakota strap for my Stradolin, intending to attach it to the headstock using the pops1 method above. My fail was forgetting that there was no tailpin on that mando :disbelief:

    Had...

    My husband and I got together with my brother and his wife this past weekend. My brother brought his guitar, and I brought my Stradolin. It was my first time to play my mandolin with someone else. IT...

    Re: A-strings constantly going out of tune

    Mark, I'm pretty confident you and Pops1 are right; I'm just really nervous about messing with the nut. I have to work myself up to it. It's the causing of "other problems" that concerns me on a...

    Re: A-strings constantly going out of tune

    I wonder what it is?

    I am going to try in order of easiest to hardest, least likely to work to most likely to work: powdered teflon, lighter strings, messing around with files.

    Re: A-strings constantly going out of tune

    So, you're saying you widen it out almost all the way to the bottom but not quite?

    The strings that came on it are stewmac medium 11 14 26 39. If I changed to lighter strings later, would it have...

    Re: A-strings constantly going out of tune

    Kevin, those tubes of graphite are black. That's probably what I would try vs. a pencil. But the idea of the teflon that Tom suggested is that it is not black, which could discolor the nut. We have...

    Re: A-strings constantly going out of tune

    I've developed A string problems on my new Morris flat top. I take out the mandolin, they are flat. It takes more turning than I feel like it should to tune them up, then after I play awhile, they...

    Re: Is this how it starts?

    It's cool to hear there is more than one out there; I'm sorry to hear yours was stolen though. I hate thieves, it's the ultimate in selfishness.

    The temperature and humidity is what concerns me as...

    You never know (with vegetables or mandolins).

    I hated brussels sprouts until my late 50's. Now I love em.

    Re: Is this how it starts?

    Have you ever seen the stairstep before?

    Here's how much I like the Stradolin - if I had to pare my belongings down to what fits in my car, this mandolin would make the cut.

    Re: instrument an offensive weapon (no mando)

    Yes, it is kind of like an extra obnoxious kazoo. Quite loud and buzzy. Only 2 notes, in and out. Maybe it's more like something you might use to call in waterfowl :))
