    Re: Wither this Krishot mandola?

    Cool story.

    After I posted this video, Eda (that's how you abbreviate it?) contact me about, of all things, falconry! I've been a falconer for 30+ years and it turns out that he has some...

    Re: Wither this Krishot mandola?

    It's just a fun thing... I saw that mandola in Berline's shop but wasn't in the market for a mandolin or anything at the time. A good friend of mine who lives close to Berline's shop and who likes...

    Re: Wither this Krishot mandola?

    Because that one is 1 serial number away from my mandolin, with the same sunburst and appointments. It's the big sister to my mandolin.

    I need a mandola like I need another guitar, but it would...

    No one knows where this mandola is? Oh well, life goes on. Barely.

    OMG... I made a spelling mistake.

    Wither this Krishot mandola?

    Does anyone know where this Krishot mandola ended up? I own mandolin #265, have seen this mandola, and wish I would've bought it 12 years ago. I would love to have a crack at it... I contacted the...

    Re: I Had A Brush With Greatness

    I went to South Plains College back in the early days and several now-famous people were next door to me or bathroom mates or what not. I've interviewed tons of people for Flatpicking Guitar...

    Re: Which one do you practice on the most?

    I have a 2002 Krishot and Elkhorn #27, both great mandolins. I keep one in the shop and one in the house and rotate them every so often. I play them both about equally- the shop mandolin is the...

    Re: Waverly tuners 10X better?

    I've never re-strung a Loar, so I didn't know this little nugget of information.

    When I get one in my hands, I tend to play it more than look at the tuners.... ;)

    Re: Waverly tuners 10X better?

    There is one thing that I don't like about Waverly mandolin tuners and that is that the shaft isn't tapered toward the hole. I like to string my tuners with 1 wrap over and a wrap under so that...

    Re: to glue or not to glue frets?

    Depends.

    With nickel/silver frets, I use liquid hide glue. It lubricates the slot and fills all air space, and it's not hard to clean when refretting.

    For stainless or EVO, I use black...

    Re: Blue Chip Picks Wow!

    I've never seen them for sale in a store. I order mine or swap for them (which is how I've gotten all but 2). On mando, I like SR60 or TPR60.

    Still use my Red Bear E and Mondo a lot, too.
  14. Re: My Pegasus case -- One year review and photos

    I've got one! And a Calton, too. I like the Peg a lot for all the aforementioned reasons- vertical carrying, contoured shape, peghead room. I have a few loose spots on mine, but they're due to me...

    Re: Mandolins thru the shop

    Thanks for the comments. No question- that Sitka Krishot was great. I'd have swapped him (the Engleman is mine) but no dice. :) I still like mine, though. It's got a nice chop and a sparkly...

    Re: Compare Three F5 Mandolins

    We have a KM-1000 too and it's a great mandolin, esp for the price. Not to hijack your thread, but I just made a video compilation of all the mandolin videos I've done on mandos passing thru my...

    That was the same Elkhorn. The last section was when I'd just gotten the mandolin and the first example was now that I've had it for a couple of weeks, gotten used to it, and refretted it w/ my...

    Re: Summit F200S

    I used to own a Summit F100S (SN56- 1995) and now own a Krishot F5 (0265, 2002). There were at least 3 mandolins and many years between them, so I never A/B'ed them.

    Can you discuss the Summit...

    Sorry, man. :) I DO have another set of BRW on a different guitar from a small unknown maker, but I think I'm going to try my hand at re-topping, re-necking, and re-finishing it. Plus, it's not...

    They've already got some wear and when .080" wide wire gets worn, you get this big wide flat surface that I just don't play well on. My fat fingers like a nice sharp crown on thinner wire and Evo in...
