    Re: Gender and age distribution of mando players

    At her parents' request, I'm teaching our 5 year old granddaughter piano (which I'm marginally qualified for, at least for a while).

    I'd much rather be teaching her mandolin.

    Re: Who was the first American mandolin manufacturer?

    Re: The virus, the economy, mandolins and you

    Best of luck on the front lines. Folks like you are going to make the difference.

    Re: The virus, the economy, mandolins and you

    I play mandolin, upright bass and bass guitar in about five different ensembles (I say "about" because the personnel overlap to some extent). I've had three gigs cancelled so far and more to come,...

    Re: Do You Play ALL of Your Mandolins Regularly?

    Yes, I play all of them, in kind of an uneven rotation depending on what's happening and where I am.

    However, the mandalas and octave are sadly neglected these days...

    I have to admit I didn't know of him, but I had the Outlaw Country Sirius XM channel on in the car for my drive today, and they were saying what Eric F said above - favorite songwriter of a lot of...

  11. Re: To the multi instrumentalists: which instrument is your no. 1

    I played guitar, bass guitar and piano when I was younger. Took some time off to raise kids; when I came back I dropped guitar (so many guitarists out there) and took up mandolin, as well as upright...

    Re: Any Baritone guitar players here?

    I'm a baritone guitar geek - I have two of them. One is a very nice Paul Reed Smith SE 277 semi-hollow in vintage sunburst - nice axe. That one's tuned B to B. The other is kind of a...
  13. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    My experience with mandola has been this. I was definitely attracted to the lower pitch. And I found that - playing by myself - mandola is very enjoyable because the longer scale and lower pitch...
  14. Re: What is the most mandolins you've owned at one time?

    Let me make one thing perfectly clear -

    I do not own and have never owned even one mandocello.
  15. Re: What is the most mandolins you've owned at one time?

    I play out of two locations that are about 100 miles apart, and I don't like lugging instruments on my weekly "commute." So I have an f-hole, an oval hole and a mandola in each location. I don't...

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

    Not a good look. I bought a new Gibson mando not long ago and, at a similar price point, it's not as good as my Collings mandos. Not sure what they think they *currently* have to brag about -...
