  2. Re: HOLY BEANBUCKETS! The Colonel's Mandolin Band LP AUTOGRAPHED!

    Just out of curiosity, does anyone recognize (or admit to being) one of the "pickers" or "strummers" listed on the back cover?

    Re: Making a Measuring Wheel

    Hey thanks! A couple years ago I whittled this doodad from a piece of hard maple. It has served as a kind of soothing adult pacifier for me ever since. But I have often wondered what it really is....

    Re: Celtic Mandolin Builders

    I bought a used Red Valley about six months ago. Even though the sound sample I heard before buying sounded good, I must confess that the looks of it really captured my interest. When I got it, it...
  8. Re: Using Tabledit to transpose from Manadolin GDAE to Mandola CG

    No problem. Click on the module box up in the upper right corner and the module dialog should come up. Click on the Tuning tab of the module dialog. Then change all the notes for each course from...

    Re: Ebay - American flag mandolin

    I am not attracted to this mandolin at all, but a couple years ago there was a special Weber A (I think it was an Absaroka) with Stars and Stripes treatment that really tugged at me. Considerably...

    Re: Schaller Grand Tune Tuning Keys

    I know it is small comfort, but StewMac will tell you the pretty much the same thing with regard to Waverly tuners that seem tighter than necessary. But, StewMac would probably offer to send you a...

    Re: Very small mandolin

    Maybe the camera angle is misleading, but my eyeball says that it would be close to unplayable if restrung (and if it didn't collapse while being brought up to pitch). If you do try to restring it,...

    Re: Changed back to nickel-silver frets

    As a genuine old geezer, I will note that my education pounded home the concept that there is reality and there are opinions. Many opinions, some of which may turn out to be pretty close to reality....

    Re: Three Mandolin Sound Test

    I am still surprised and pleased when I pick up my RV AM custom, built for the previous owner.

  17. Re: Virtual Shop Tour(s)... I'll show you mine

    I have visited four mandolin builders' shops (Bruce Weber, Sonny Morris, Dale Ludewig, Matt Ruhland). One thing that impressed me is that they all had a zillion tools and that necessitated strict...

    Great tune and great sound from that mandola. I liked both so much that I just went to your website and downloaded the album.

    Pete, can you point me at a notated or tabbed or abc-ed copy of the version you are playing? Everything I have found by that name has been quite different. Fiddler's Companion (ibiblio) mentions a...
