  1. Re: Micing my Farmers Market/Retirement Home Bluegrass band

    I don't know if there is an obvious alternative to either group mic-ing or individual mic mixing. But I'll say this for a single mic (or a single main mic and a solo instrumental mic) - if folks are...

    Re: Old Gibson

    Now that you've posted your location, I'm sure that folks will advise on instrument shops qualified to fixer up! No reason to fear putting it shape, cleaning it up a bit and playing it. But probably...
  3. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Can someone condense the 'explanation' so I don't have to watch the video? This is the strangest thing ever...
  4. Re: Michael Daves - August Residency at Jalopy, Brooklyn, NY

    Here's another new one that I just produced from the 2018 show with Chris Eldridge. Warning... no mandolin! But on a positive note... you don't often hear a vintage D-28 up against a plywood Kay...
  5. Re: Michael Daves - August Residency at Jalopy, Brooklyn, NY

    ...or if your tastes run more toward the Stanley Brothers - here's Clinch Mountain Backstep with Chris 'Critter' Eldridge on the old D-28.

    Now Kay made a whole lot of these pressed top mandolins,...
  6. Michael Daves - August Residency at Jalopy, Brooklyn, NY

    (This doesn't fit in any one genre category, so posting in General.) Here's one of a series of brand new videos that I'm producing for Michael Daves. He's promoting a residency: Sundays in August at...

    Maybe Martin was operating within the law instead of outside it?
  8. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Monroe circa 1977 - the heyday of Ibanez 'lawsuit' instruments!

    What a story... and a happy ending, too!
  10. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Agree! Albert Shutt of Topeka, Kansas was essentially co-inventor (with Orville Gibson) of the 'American Mandolin' as distinct from its European ancestors. Carved, violin-style top and back plates...

    Jesse McReynolds at 90

    A couple photos from his FB feed of the party thrown for him at the Opry. I thought the Cafe types might enjoy seeing this cake: a three-point w ff-holes!

  12. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Hopefully, the corporate might of Gibson will put an end to this commercial and its accompanying jingle. I'm not even sure that Kid can play guitar... ;-)

    Re: Gibson “Black Night” at TMS

    Nice review, Billy - and what looks like a nice mandolin. As for blacktops, if you play them enough, fingerprints become less of a concern. ;-)

    Nice Transfer Decal on L&H Model A

    Listed on Ebay - a particularly fancy 'decal' on this Model A L&H. It has the leg rest. The asymmetrical body points. Ex condition. It's the shorter 13" scale, which I find cramped, but I know that...

    Re: Will Kimble "Trident" Mandolin

    Again, you can just ask the maker for the replacement cost. He is the only one who knows that.
  16. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    So much manufactured outrage! I watched the video and frankly it doesn’t seem like such a big deal to me. Gibson will talk big, and will enforce what it is legally able to enforce. What it can not...

  18. Re: If you could have any mandolin in the world….

    Even dream mandolins look like a good deal when you see an auction estimate of £3,000 - £5,000 for just the scroll of a violin.

    Re: Mandolin at the Tonys

    Hahaha... I too did a double take, and then a triple take when I saw his Brian Dean(?) mandolin on the Tonys. I haven't seen the show, but it sounds like a great production. It's such a unique and...
  20. Re: oddball (pseudo?-) resonator w. amusing "professional" setup

    It's an historically intersting instrument - but 'professionally re-conditioned' it is NOT. The problem is not in the nut or the bridge but the sloppy coat of who-knows-what covering the wood parts....

    Re: New detail on early Style O neck block

    They went to the trouble of making up a nice stamp - but i've never seen its imprint before either.
  23. Re: Open chords vs closed chords for chops n chucks

    I'm afraid this thread may already be too 'in the weeds' for a relative beginner learning basic chord shapes - but I can't resist adding a couple more lines...

    I don't think that the bluegrass...
  24. Re: Open chords vs closed chords for chops n chucks

    Learn both. The BG chop chords are only hard until they aren’t. And lots of players use the pinky mute on open chords as a big part of their playing too.

    Re: Vega Repair

    If you have some mechanical skills, you can do this yourself. Start by putting a couple bits of 'low stick' masking tape on the top, and marking the position of the bridge. (it will come loose when...
