    Re: Deep Nostalgia - Lloyd Loar

    Looks like his radar ears are zeroing in on the tap-tuning.

    Re: Kentucky Brand Mandolins-opinion

    Thanks Mike. Been there, done that (Google search as you describe).
    Thought I might direct the O.P. to search results without sending him off-site. After various roadblocks I decided to abandon the...

    Re: Gratitude

    Beware... A good mandolin can be addictive and just might become your new favorite hobby. The whole 'web development' thing may suffer.

    Re: Gratitude

    My point wasn't meant to accuse you of taking advantage. My point was that they (Walter and Christie) know that all it takes is a little temptation. Good luck!

    The folks at Carter Vintage are great. I'm sure they welcome you're instrument 'browsing' with smiling faces and open arms. Ultimately though, they keep the doors open through sales.

    Re: Gibson mandolin pricing

    I'd say the short answer to your question is 'Yes'. There's generally a premium attached to the Derrington name. That's not a recent development, it's been that way for some time. The mandolin in...

    Re: Seeking Grandfather's record

    I would not argue with the general point. More than likely, if discs were made, they were made by recording the live performance directly onto the disc.
    This was not the only way of recording live...

    Re: Kentucky km1000 serial number age?

    Some of the "Sumi Era" Kentucky mandolins (Maruko shop) have serial numbers that begin with the year built (i.e. 84 xxx). Others of that era have serial numbers ending with year built. Some have...

  16. Re: Definition of a good mandolin player’s spouse

    My wife bought me my first mandolin thinking I might want to try to learn how to play it.
    More than a decade later I'm still trying and she still hasn't divorced me. I think that qualifies.

    Re: Mandolin flagship song?

    No... Bernie's right. The whole thing is subjective. The first question asked in the OP is: Does the mandolin have a “flagship” song?

    I'm not a doctor (don't even play one on TV) and I don't know what that irritated spot is exactly. My only observation/advice is that thumb placement on your fretting hand is (should be) different on...
