    Re: Howe-Orme Mandolinetto

    Me too, Allen. They are fun as you said. I find you have to learn to play them like they want to be played - they are not bluegrass machines. Mine had the neck falling off, but was put back together...

    Well I for one had not heard this tune or the album, so I am glad you posted! What great music. Just sampled the rest of the LP & bought it. Thanks!

    You can hear Frank, literally "alongside" several of those artists, on a great version of Dusty Miller, and he also does a couple of his own tunes on this album, which is great fun:

    Re: dry & dusty/ old time mandolin & fiddle

    Very nice! This came up at a fiddle jam a few weeks back and I wasn't familiar with it. Perhaps with these fine examples you folks have provided, I can at least have a clue the next time it comes...

    Good luck Sue! I hope it's got a great fret job and neck on it and sounds fantastic.

    It might be easier for some of us to relate to if you said your MAS is in remission. Some are just not destined for a cure. :grin:

    Re: Eastman 515 vs J Bovier F5t

    I can also speak favorably for the Eastman 515. I've played a couple of them at a local store that sounded and played really well. There was a 515V they had a couple of years ago that was so great I...
  11. Re: Strap for a Strad-ol-Lin? There's no strap button.

    Ugh :( Strap around the headstock? - Drives me nuts whether it's a mando or a guitar. Just doesn't feel right.
