    Re: Thile using an SM57 mic

    I believe this is a legit quote from Gillian Welch, although I can't remember or vouch for the original source.

    "We carry Shure SM-58s and SM-57s," Welch says. "Fancy microphones can be very...

    Great quote from Norman Blake in post 27 above ^^^. And thoughtful. He's separating the idea of labeling for commercial reasons (and making a living is important and valid in this world), from the...

    Re: Punch brothers

    Oh! Damn! That is a helluva buildup and release.

    You can't overstate the reverence and deep love the Bros have for so much of the repertoire. Take Noam's Kenny Baker reboot. And now this album....
  6. Fifteenth Anniversary of the Death of Charlie Derrington

    Re: Shutt mandolin inner baffle

    I THINK it's fair to say that the baffle you describe was likely not in most A2 models. Sorry for all the qualifiers, but the scholarship is still pretty rudimentary on this revolutionary designer's...

    Re: Shutt mandolin inner baffle

    Hi Greg,

    I've had the chance to examine several of the 'artists model' the 'A1-A3' designs and maybe a dozen of the Harmony factory made 2-shoulder design. And I haven't seen the detail you...

    Re: Lyon & Healy mandolin scales

    I think that for me, and maybe most folks used to the Gibson scale, the longer L&H scale (essentially the same as the Gibson) both feels and sounds closer to what we look for in a mandolin. But if...

    Re: Martin with extra sound hole!

    That is indeed a very rare mod on a 50s 5-15T.

    But I expect it will find a good home, and of course, it'll be quite a conversation piece around the song circle!

    Re: Gibson F2 and F4 mandolins.

    Another way to look at it is this. $1000 invested in the S&P500 index 1975 and untouched until today would amount to over $150,000 today - dividends reinvested, not adjusted for inflation.

    Re: Great Vintage Mandolins Under $1,000

    In post 24 above I laid out my theory that the best deal in vintage mandolins is an L&H Model C that's missing its desirable tail piece cover. At the moment, there are two such in the classifieds....

    Re: Lyon & Healy Mandobass

    It's a neat instrument. And I believe that it does have an endpin. It's been a while since I've seen it in person.

    Like all bass mandolins, it's not comparable to a double bass in almost any...
  17. Re: Nickel Creek - When You Come Back Down (posted 2 days ago)

    That's a spectacular recording by the way. The instruments all sound great, the space sounds natural and lovely, and the subtle subtle stereo field seems just right - at least to me. I think that's a...

    I don't think there's any cause to be cynical about trying to find the strings, the pick, the instrument that works for you. And of course many top pros are always on the hunt. And others settle on...

    Re: 3-Part Chris Thile Master Class online

    Thile made me my first Negroni. I have to say, watching him wield that ice pick made me a little nervous!

    It was a good drink. And not my last. :-)

    I did not know that instrument came from Mandolin Brothers... assuming it's the one Andy played for so long.
