    Re: Monteleones in the Denver Area?

    Also a good recommendation! I was just thinking about trying out some new strings. I've only ever played medium Elixer Nanowebs and medium D'Addarios on it, both of which I really like. I don't want...

    Re: Monteleones in the Denver Area?

    Scotter, I had an opportunity to play a Smart 10-string with fanned frets that Matt Flinner had several years ago. They are really cool instruments but definitely feel strange to me. The tone was a...

    Re: Monteleones in the Denver Area?

    Thanks, Jim! You make a good point. As do you, Mandobar! That's kind of what I'm struggling with at this point. I do love my Cohen dearly but it is still a little tight on the high end. Of course I...

    Re: Monteleones in the Denver Area?

    I would love to buy one eventually but it's going to take some planning and saving (though they are less expensive than many cars so I can justify the cost to myself). We are very early days in this...

    Hot dang! New posting! Thanks, Jim! I couldn't pull the trigger on such an expensive instrument without playing it but it's nice to fantasize about. 😉

    Re: Monteleones in the Denver Area?

    Good point, Jim! I will send him an email.

    I have only seen one Radio Flyer for sale online, a beautiful A-style in Japan that was listed on Reverb. I just checked the listing again and it has...

    Monteleones in the Denver Area?

    Hello, all!

    I have been extremely interested in Monteleones for quite some time now without ever having had the opportunity to play one. I live in Central Wyoming, where there isn't a huge mando...

    Thought about that one, but no. The second day I had it I took a pretty good chunk of finish off of the binding with my laptop while setting up for recording. I had a bit of a breakdown, but have...

    Re: My Cohen C#!

    Thanks for the suggestion, pefjr, but we've already named him. "Dorian Gray," long for Dorry. He really is more gray in person (and not photographed over "winter brown" grass), though there is a...

    Re: Two new C# mandolins

    Like a dream! Smooth, even, different than any other style I've played in a way that is very hard to describe. That Dave's a genius.
  13. Re: speaking of Dave Cohen. . . (and my new A5!)

    Awesome fatt-dad! That is one sweet lookin' Cohen! The walnut on that puppy is gorgeous. I imagine you are just as pleased with your new instruments as I am with mine. In which case you are already...

    The "pinstriping" is actually a very beautiful all wood binding that Dave laminates himself. On this particular instrument the binding is five layers: (from inside out) ebony, maple, rosewood,...

    My Cohen C#!

    Hello all!

    I know Dave already posted some photos of this one but I couldn't help but make a post of my own. I gotta say, I absolutely love this mandolin! The tone, the playability, the quilt!...

    Re: Two new C# mandolins

    That gorgeous gray mandolin looks just like the one I received only two hours ago! Absolutely phenomenal work, Dave. I cannot express just how much I love this mandolin!

    Thank you so very much!
  17. Re: What is the best mandolin somebody handed you to play

    David Grisman handed me his Loar to check out backstage at Rocky Grass when I was fifteen. I couldn't believe the volume and playability of that thing! Truly one of those great moments in life.

    Re: To sticker or not to sticker...

    I recently acquired a Gator case that I've been adding stickers to (came to me with a few already on it), but I also have a Pegasus and an original redline on which there are no stickers. I don't...

    Re: Your first experience with a Loar?

    The only Loar I've ever played was David Grisman's '24 (not Crusher) backstage at Rocky Grass when I was probably fifteen-years-old. I just wanted to meet him and show him my little F4 as he is my...

    Sounds like an old Kay that was given to me by my grandpa when I first started playing. It was in much the same condition; rusted strings, neck completely separated from the body, but when I showed...
  21. Re: Who out there taught themselves to play the madolin

    I started teaching myself to play when I was about thirteen, using a Ray Valla (I think...) book on mandolin. I started out learning fiddle tunes from tab, tunes that I knew my dad played on guitar,...

    Re: Which mando do you most hanker after?

    I'll second that. I've never played one of his mandos, but my old bass teacher has a Holst archtop guitar that is phenomenal in most every way. From the looks of it Holst's mandolins are made with...

    Re: Which mando do you most hanker after?

    I have three mandolins on my mind at the moment: a San Juan F5, a Cohen C#, and a Smart 10-string fanned-fret mandolin. The nice thing about this dream is that I will eventually end up with one of...

    Re: Taking the finish off the neck

    I've come to look at the worn finish on my F4 with fondness and a bit of pride. Good memories of the hours it took to get down to the bare wood, I suppose.

    I've only played one mandolin with an...
