    Re: What is a "Selected Spruce Top"?

    Re: Question for Arrow Jazzbo owners

    They look so cool, it reignites my MAS. The nice fat tone doesn’t hurt either.

    Re: Traditionally voiced A-style?

    That’s an interesting concept, given how few people could likely remember how Monroe’s mandolin sounded unamplified, especially compared to another Loar. It would be interesting to me to have...

    Re: Traditionally voiced A-style?

    Forgive me for not knowing, but what is “traditionally voiced”? Compared to oval hole A style? Compared to a 1922-24 F5? How would you characterize the sound? What’s an example of non traditional...
  7. Re: Should I put a Mandolin Cafe Sticker on my Vintage Lifton Cas

    If it makes you happy to do it, go ahead. If a lingering doubt, wait and do it later:). I have stickers on some cases and not on others. And yes, they leave goo on tweed cases, even when they fall...

    Re: Free Improv Course

    Re: technique

    You can never have too much technique. You can easily be short of good taste.

    A shop I was in got written up for pouring glue into unlabeled squeeze bottles. We wrote: ‘Glue. Do not eat’ to be safe:)

    Great player in a great band. Sorry their festival agenda didn't happen, was so looking forward to seeing them again. Nice to see him get so broader notice.
  16. Re: The sheer inexpressible delight of stumbling across a new tun

    I got a copy of Cole's 1000 Fiddle tunes in about 1974. I'm a slow learner, more than a few to go:)

    Re: Front porch furniture + mandolin

    I'd be really curious to know if F models are 'more profitable' than A's. Maybe they are by dollar amount, but I'd think the per hour rate garnered is less, generally. If you can get >$20K, F's...

    Re: Finally Finished: Soliver #001

    Congratulations! While I know you've been working on this awhile, I'm still envious at the speed with which you got it done, ie, you kept after it. Not all of us do that:(

    Beautiful job:)

    Re: What’s after a Kentucky KM-1050?
