  1. Re: Case, bag for piccolino/pocket/pochette mandolin. Any photos?

    Though I can't imagine this being helpful to you, this is the case for my ca. 1910 unmarked piccolo:

  2. Re: Are you interested in a new method for the mandocello?

    Florian,

    The only mandocello methods of which I am aware were written over a century ago, Bickford included. I think a new method, while it would be a far cry from best-sellerdom, would be...

    Re: Identify unmarked piccolo?

    Thanks, Bob A. How cool to hear from a former owner! And to learn a little bit of its history! As for playing it, I can keep my fingernails pared to a fare-thee-well, but it will still take some...

    Re: Blind test of 6 different bowlbacks

    Thanks, again, for doing this. My preferences were No. 3 in first place (didn't know a Ceccherini could sound this good); No. 1 in second place; followed by nos. 4, 5, 6 in no particular order; and...

    Thanks for a good ear training lesson. And for the chance to hear up close and personal mandos I would likely not else encounter. The length and complexities of the piece you chose were perfect, I...

    Re: Modern writing?

    Re: Strings with no loop & no ball

    In January of this year I had this issue with strings for a Vinaccia. You can see that thread here. In short, I've learned to tie tidy and tiny bowline knots. Good luck!
