  1. Re: Mandolin Orange Live in Studio "New Sounds"

    Thanks for giving us all a window into the fulfillment of a mandolin dream for many here. That Gibson was powerful at Thalia Hall this weekend. I hope Ella has moved on to a new owner who will...
  2. Re: Mandolin Orange Live in Studio "New Sounds"

    Thanks from me too, Dem. This was a great listen. I had to pity the DJ that he didn't get the pun of the band's name! But yes, the Loar does sound lovely. Can't wait to hear it live next weekend....
  3. Re: Anybody from North Kakalacky (North Carolina)

    Born and raised in Chapel Hill and still consider myself a proud Tar Heel, despite not having lived there for quite a few years now. Most of both sides of the family are still in the triangle area.
  4. Re: Article: Mandolin Orange's Andrew Marlin Comes Out From Under

    Agreed, great interview. I gave this another listen after reading the article the other day and was again very impressed. Super interesting to hear about the mandolin choice for this recording as...

    Re: Punch Bros at Red Rocks w/Gillian Welch

    They all came out together for the encore, pictured above. The first tune was The Weight, with verses taken by, I think, Gillian, Gabriel, Critter, Paul, and then all on the last verse. Then while...

    Re: Punch Bros at Red Rocks w/Gillian Welch

    Yep, this was a very special show. The Punch Brothers played with a ton of energy, and the bulk of the crowd seemed to be there for them. Lots of raucous cheering after songs, as if congratulating...

    Re: Levon Helm

    Thanks to everyone for all this Levon love. One of my very favorite musicians, and this was a fun excursion into some of the late era performances. I remember seeing the Levon Helm Band earlier the...

    Re: Girouard Mandolins

    Very cool, Mary. Sounds like it was fate.

    TME's blurb says that A5 is noticeably different than other Girouards. Does that refer to the Red Spruce top and the cremona burst, do you think? The...

    Re: Girouard Mandolins

    Someone got a fantastic deal today on Girouard #70, a bog cedar-topped mandola. This is 3 SNs away from my cedar F5 and looks to have a very similar burst. I was very tempted to snap up this twin...

    Re: Im With Her at 9:30 Club

    No, but their show a couple weeks ago in Chicago was stunning as well. I am so delighted that this band has finally found the right time to get together and make music regularly.
  12. Re: Michael Heiden videos / Reischman comparing his Loar to Heide

    What a worthwhile Canadian initiative. Thanks for posting these videos.

    I definitely hear what John says about the Heiden having a thicker, fatter tone, while the Gibson is a little clearer and...

    Re: Pick thickness?

    To my mind it's a question of the mechanics of picking a double-course instrument and getting good tone. It takes a few steps, so bear with me...

    If you hold a pick firmly when picking the...

    Re: Torn between two mandolas

    Well I am a big fan of my Girouard mandolin, and though I haven't played one of their mandolas myself, the recordings I've heard sound fantastic. I've played a couple of Collings mandolas and didn't...

    Re: Going to see Mike Compton tonight

    Yeah this was really unfortunate. Unfortunately, it's also very typical of this festival, which relies on undergraduates to organize it and carry it all off. They also seem to take a perverse pride...

    See you there!

    If you can get down to Hyde Park early for the workshops, Mike is leading one at 3:15 in Ida Noyes Hall.

    Re: Nugget Mandolin #310

    I can definitely relate to the inspiration from hearing Joe K. Walsh's. That mandolin sounds so alive. Hope your notes are jumping off the board like his!
  20. Re: Stuart Duncan Transcription- Pretty Fair Maid in the Garden

    Thanks a lot for this. "Pretty Fair Maid" is sch a great song, and Stuart's fiddle break is really tasteful here. I'll look forward to checking this out when I can play along. How do you find those...

    Wow, the video recording of that blonde F5 does indeed sound wonderful. And like you say, very different from the Loar-spec sound of other Duffs, as best you can tell from an internet video, of...

    Re: Girouard Mandolins

    Oh it's a keeper for me for sure. I swooned for the tone when I first played it.



    I tried the nickel bronze strings on D'Addario's trial. I didn't notice a big difference in tone, honestly. And...

    Re: Girouard Mandolins

    Girouard #73--the video I posted above--is a cedar-topped Girouard, and indeed the wood is from Spruce himself! I'd say the sound is a little chunkier than red spruce. But there are so many factors,...

    Re: Girouard Mandolins

    Very cool. I'll be excited to see the progress on this one, and hope we'll get to hear it played a bit. I assume they'll be shooting for the Loar tone.
