  1. Re: Who was the first American mandolin manufacturer?

    Yes, this book published in 2017 does not have any other information about earlier mandolins than was quoted by Paul Fox, the original poster for this thread.

    ollaimh, what is that? It doesn't look American to me or even from earlier than the 1880s. Or are you just kidding?

    Re: Book for learning Classical Mandolin

    I am sure that others will add more. Oh, actually for both classical and Italian, check out any of my friend Carlo Aonzo’s books. Not method books per se but excellent selections of music.

    Also, I found this backup track for that tune and you can even slow it down a bit in YouTube.

    I thought the seller meant is was a melon-shaped back. Looks like rosewood to me.

    For historical purposes, here are some photos.

    Re: Interesting bowlback on ebay

    Pearl work seems a bit amateurish to my eyes, even cartoony. Whoever did it was not the Consalvi of Catania.

    I guess it fits in with the guitars by that shop at the Fetish Guitar site. I have in...

  25. Re: First Video of The Mandolin Store new location

    Wonderful! The only problem is that there are way too many mandolins. How can we, as service-minded mandolin players, fix this?
