  2. Re: Weber factory tuner I.D. wanted / Adjustment question

    I am quite happy with them; haven't ever thought about upgrading.
  3. Re: Weber factory tuner I.D. wanted / Adjustment question

    I have the same tuners on my 2012 Rawhide. They look like Grover 309CN to me. And I have a set of worm-over 309 C's on another mando - the back plate is identical except it is flipped top to bottom.

    Re: Which bridge should I get?

    I do like the newer style ("traditional") Brekke bridge for its adjustability under full string tension. I have old man's hearing, but to me, it sounds great.

    Re: Did someone say PICKS?

    A wise guru once said: "For every mandolin there exists a perfect pick."

    And: "For every pick there exists a perfect mandolin."

    And finally: "And never the twain shall meet."

  10. Re: mando in $300 price range for Italian songs

    I paid ~$300 for my Vega bowlback and it looks and sounds pretty good. It sounds good with O Solo Mio and Santa Lucia (my whole Italian repertoire). I see them on eBay from time to time for about the...

    Re: Would you sacrifice tone for playability?

    Let's say I have $500 - $1.5k to spend on a mandolin. I would not buy one that sounds crummy. I would not buy one that has structural problems or design defects that render it impossible to play...
  16. Re: Can anyone tell me anything about this banjolin?

    As a matter of fact, I am pretty sure the banjo mandolin in that thread is the same instrument as the one in this thread. Check the stains on the head. Good catch, Flutes.

    Re: beside the mandolin.

    Used to. But none of that la-dee-dah three finger stuff. Swore it off, though, and got a mandolin. Haven't looked back.

    Re: Mandolin "B" stock or seconds etc.

    I suspect that it will sound just like a non-second The Loar. I wish you luck but I don't think you'll need it. Unpack it, do the Rob Meldrum setup on it and you'll be liking it just...
