  1. Re: A question for luthiers - from a non-luthier

    Well this thread was worthwhile! After reading the various responses I reflected on my practice habits and I believe the answer to my question is explained by two factors: perception and...
  2. Re: A question for luthiers - from a non-luthier

    Dave - thank you. That is a very interesting observation. It will be interesting to see how the thoughts expressed on this thread affect my own perception of the two mandolins compared. I do agree...

    Ahh - thank you
    I hate to expose my construction ignorance, but what exactly is "neck relief"?
  4. Re: A question for luthiers - from a non-luthier

    Thank you Aaron. Your post is most helpful. It really does make me think that the luthier's work of creating a particular sound and feel is art, not science! How much was Rolfe's creation itself a...

    Well said Eric and totally what I'm talking about. Thank you.
  6. Re: A question for luthiers - from a non-luthier

    "the responsiveness of the instruments, or how they respond to the pick. One might take more effort to produce the same loudness as the other.
    the "tone" of the instruments. What we hear can make a...
  7. A question for luthiers - from a non-luthier

    I am in hopes a builder can explain something to me. My Phoenix Neo-classical Europa III is amazingly easy to play. The pick literally feels like it is gently caressing the strings. Both it and my...

    Lyon & Healy Mandola Model A

    Those of you who have been watching vintage instruments for years: can you tell me how rare L&H Model A mandolas are please? How often have you seen one for sale (either symmetrical or asymetrical)...

    Eugene -
    I am updating my response re the Galli pick. I have continued to experiment with it on both the TI and Dogal stringed instruments. In fact I have come to enjoy using it on the TIís...

    Re: Classical mandolin album library list

    Caterina Lichtenberg's new Solo album should be added to the list. It is an extraordinarily sensitive performance. You can feel her heart in every pick stroke. Nothing short of amazing.

    Re: Take Your Pick

    Today I received Caterina Lichtenberg's new solo album. It is extraordinary. Played back to back with Sebastiaan de Grebber's La Voce de Mandolino album and you have incredible examples of the German...

    To say this album is extraordinary is an understatement. Caterina's sensitivity and feeling for this music lifts this album way beyond a virtuoso performance. It is a most wonderful gift to the...

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld Strings

    Dan - my signature below lists the TI's I have on three different style mandolins. I think TI's are great - but definitely, for me, not on a bowl back.

    Re: Take Your Pick

    I was able to set up an account after several attempts. The website has some pretty awkward flaws and inconsistent behaviors. On the other hand, once you get an order submitted, they are very fast at...

    Just a wee bit of a topic stray - just wanted to say that Caterina is an incredibly wonderful, skillful teacher. She is a kind and generous person who very capably hones in on the student's...

    Re: Take Your Pick

    Hi Eugene -
    It has been most interesting so far. The Gali pick, when used with the Dogal strings on my bowl back, results in a substantial, wonderful change in tone. Overall the bowl back becomes...
  24. Re: Lyon & Healy Model A rebuild or for parts

    Jim - whoa! That would make you think twice - thanks for pointing that out! (Is this one of those "dah" moments? LOL)
  25. Re: Lyon & Healy Model A rebuild or for parts

    Louise - feeling ignorant here. Are you saying that a bidder will pay an additional amount beyond his bid or that the premium is simply a portion of a bid that goes to an auction house? Thank you!!
