    Re: Noise with cheap magnetic pickups!

    I might add, we used to play in a place where we had noise all the time. We found an outlet without compressors for air or kitchen and the noise went away. Had to run a long heavy extension cord, but...

    Re: Oval hole differences

    There is also the flat or cant top oval. They have a similar, but different sound than a carved top with either neck.
  3. Re: Circa 1940 Mandolin- Flat Top- recessed tuners- very odd.

    My Stewart if form 1920 and has the same bridge as I said, but the tuners are sunk in the rear with the large single plate on back. Were the front loaded tuners from a later period?
  4. Re: Circa 1940 Mandolin- Flat Top- recessed tuners- very odd.

    I have an S.S. Stewart with the same bridge. Just made a lower one so it plays better and put the original in the case.
  5. Re: Campanella two-point (How to make an accent on due?)

    If the setup is low, it could be a high fret that is touching, not enough to buzz, but enough to dampen the volume. Truss rod, setup should be checked.

    Re: Like this site but for guitar....

    I used to go to ' the acoustic guitar forum', but don't visit much any more. There are folks from here that I have seen responding there too.

    Re: Tuner...not Tuners

    I also like my strings in tune. I am usually able to do it with the tuner, but it takes a while of finicky tuning.

    Re: 3 Point F-4 Torch and Wire

    I was wondering if the OP won the auction and acquired this mandolin.

  10. Re: ISO: Case that Fits a 1930's Regal Resonator

    Don't know it this will work, but if you get the measurements from CES it's a good price.

    Re: Noise with cheap magnetic pickups!

    Find an outlet that is not on the same circuit as the lights. Plug everything that has to do with sound in that outlet using a long extension cord if you have to. It should help some.

    Re: 1930's SS Stewart Mandolin

    I just finished setting up a nice 1920 S.S. Stewart mandolin. All mahogany, with a little work it sounds and plays great. Original case, not a tight fit, but a little foam and it works well. Came...
  13. Re: Shocking revelation! Lyon & Healy Style C on eBay

    I bid on it, but the buyer had a higher automatic bid. Not a bad repair and would be a nice mandolin to have at that price. I do hope it will be repaired and played.

    Re: Tuner...not Tuners

    Unitune is the next best tuner to a Peterson. Best tuner I have found for size and accuracy.

    I think it's more like not wanting to open the ad if it is more than the OP can afford to spend. Seeing something really nice and not being able to afford it. I am one who can't afford a lot of the...

    Re: Restorig my Strad-o-line hit a slight snag

    Take a small straight edge that will only touch 3 frets and see if the C# is high. It may be it just need a slight tap to reseat it. I would do this first before filing anything.

    Re: Ditson Victory.. in need of TLC, need advice

    I recently worked on the tuners of an old S.S,Stewart mandolin with similar tuners. The plate simply screws into the wood on mine and covers the tuning plates.. I also have old tuners and would be...

    You can also use a hack saw, depending on the access and how far the screw is turned out.

    On such an instrument I use fingernail polish. Punch a hole the size you want in masking tape and place it accordingly, put a dab of polish in the hole and peel the tape before it is too dry. I have...

    Re: Top bracing a Gibson EM150

    Definitely glue the brace to the top. Gluing to the other brace if it is straight will strengthen the brace, but gluing to the top too will give you more strength.

    Re: Top bracing a Gibson EM150

    It sounds like the brace that should be there has come unglued on the bass side.
