    Re: Pub Prop

    I’ve used one for at least 15 years without any problem. They are strong, secure and good for what they were designed for. The alternative is to put your instruments back in their cases (there isn’t...

    Re: Letís talk ovals Vs fís

    I play an oval A in sessions without any particular volume difficulties. But, as mentioned previously, it really comes into its own in quieter sessions or at home when the tone and complexity can be...

    Re: Wood Identification Assistance

    Very difficult to say from the photo but I have a piece of padauk that looks rather similar. Most cocobolo I’ve seen seems a little darker. I may be wrong though.

    Re: Favorite Acoustic Amps?

    I use a ZT Amplification Acoustic Lunchbox for smaller jobs and a Bose L1 Compact for slighter larger gigs. I’ve been extremely happy with both. Where I have to go into a house PA I use my Radial...

    Re: Liam O'Flynn (Planxty) RIP

    For me, he was a wonderful piper and one of the truly great players. He had a huge influence on ITM and he will be greatly missed.

    Re: ISO standard for musical instruments

    I think standards could be useful in the areas of interconnectivity and interchangeability of some parts and perhaps for some environmental aspects, e.g. emissions, waste, and safety. I would...
  10. Re: A trip to Hobgoblin Music, and a new Paul Hathway mandolin.

    I have never bought an instrument at HG in Rathbone Place but always found them very helpful on the occasions I’ve been in there (generally as part of a general blitz on West End music shops). I had...

    Re: Blue Chip Uk

    I’ve bought mine from JP Guitars. I have a broad selection of picks including Primetones, Wegens, TS and V-picks and none of them are like the BlueChips which I much prefer for mandolin. They...

    Re: Phil Davidson Mandolins

    Hi Seamus... I usually sit next to someone in sessions who plays the more expensive carved top Davidson and it is a fine instrument (I’ve tried it out also). If you’re up my way to try the TKL case...

    Re: Resonator mandolins

    My RM-1, with its usual flatwound strings, is my “go-to” mandolin for Irish and Scottish sessions. Its tone is sweet and loud at the same time and you can easily lead a set in a big session with this...

    I have a TKL Prestige that my Old Wave A4 lives in when not being played. Your’re welcome to try your Eastman in it if you’re up my way.

    +1 for the TKL archtop A style case here too for most normal situations rather than really heavy duty use.

    I used to “plant” my pinky on the top but over the years have become more of a “free floater” with the heel of my hand often lightly touching the strings just behind the bridge which gives me a...

    Re: Strap Question

    My oval holes have all either come with strap buttons or I have fitted them. I just prefer the security a strap affords, even when sitting.

    All of my mandolins are larger than “standard” but all will fit into Hiscox cases, of which I have two. Bulkier than most cases for sure but at least excellent protection. I doubt my Taran Springwell...

    Re: What Irish tunes should I learn?

    Probably best to ask at the session. I've played at lots of different sessions and the repertoire usually varies at each although certain tunes do crop up fairly regularly (although this tends to...
