    Re: 3 Point F-4 Torch and Wire

    Those 3-pointers are beautiful! I'm sorry the auction didn't work out for the OP - maybe another one will come along.

    Here's a 1906 that I really enjoy playing (frets and inlaid pick guard are...

  4. Re: Radial Tonebone PZ-Pre Acoustic Preamp

    I can't answer for both instruments since I don't amplify my mando, but I love this Radial Tonebone on my acoustic electric. 5-string fiddle. Wireless to the Tonebone to the amp/mixer.

  5. Re: Anybody happen to have tabs for Temtation Rag?

    JL277z, I'm in awe of your analysis! That's probably the reason I'm hearing an A in the second measure.

    And the B is just a passing tone (like the D# in the first measure), not requiring any...

  7. Re: Anybody happen to have tabs for Temtation Rag?

    Awesome work!

    One oddity - maybe it's just my hearing - is that the second melody note in measure 2 is written as a B in notation and tab, but the midi player plays it as an A. Similar issue...

    Re: A mandolin/violin relative price story

    This! And I'll add that the best bows can draw an even and beautiful tone over their entire length without having to press down too much. This requires a trained maker who understands the wood, and...

    Re: Joe Val 2018

    I'll be at Joe Val Fest, of course! They haven't finalized the JV Workshop schedule for 2018 quite yet, but as far as I know I'll be teaching two fiddle workshops, the first of which would be ok for...

    Re: How many missing Loars?

    A good day for the buyer, perhaps. Seems low for a '26 Fern in VG-EX condition considering what I've seen offered recently from private sellers. Of course, price usually depends on condition, sound,...

  18. Re: Tried out a fiine Distressed Master Model F-5 at Music Empori

    Didn't try that either. I used to own a Collings MF5 Deluxe Varnished model which was super.

    I didn't, but might get a chance next week.
  20. Tried out a fiine Distressed Master Model F-5 at Music Emporium

    I took a break from work to wander over to TME in Lexington, MA, wanting to try out this mando that just got listed. It's cool to live close by, but it can be dangerous!

    This DMM is really a fine...

    I'm a fiddle player - it's a really fun instrument, though tricky at times. Consider finding a teacher first, who can help you rent or buy an instrument. Try instruments in person if possible...

    Re: Ellis F5 Reserve in Classifieds

    I tried out this Ellis a couple of days ago and loved the clarity, punch, and playability, in addition to the beautiful quilted back.

    It's dangerous to live 5 minutes from the Music Emporium :-)....
  23. Re: Dream, Dream, Dream...so what's your list?

    I'd be delighted to have an old but playable Gibson F4 with torch and wire headstock and tree of life fingerboard inlay. Otherwise I'm in good shape with mandos.
