  4. Re: Mando Acquisition Syndrome and the Mandocello

    I am very happy with Pango Afanti F mandocello although I don't play it that much. For that price, you can't go wrong.

    I too had no interest in the guitar-shaped 'cellos - I didn't like the feel...

    Hi everyone!

    Hi!

    There are certainly significant benefits to being able to play without "finger gazing." Being able to play effectively while reading music is an obvious example (as mentioned.) Another important...

    The website chloride.com has a little widget that will transform the chords for a song between multiple instruments including guitar and mandolin.

    Re: Bach Cello Suites

    My advice would be not to do this. You can get the scores transposed for violin for free on IMSLP. Transposing on the fly may mess with your reading abilities!

    Re: Pango Mandocello

    So I just bought a Road Runner Boulevard Acoustic Gig Bag (7/8 to Concert). The 'cello fits quite nicely and if I don't jump up and down on it, I think the bridge should be ok.

    Any suggestions...

    Re: F style mandocello case?

    Hey, mandocellists!

    Thread economy here!

    So, it seems obvious to me that the best I can hope for as a mandocello case for my new Afanti F is an archtop guitar case. However, my first excursion...

    Re: Pango Mandocello

    Hello, Jim!

    The nut on mine is 1 5/8." I *think* that's a fraction wider than the K4? The scale is just over 25" given where my luthier placed the bridge.

    The neck is very guitaresque and...

    Omgomgomg I can't wait to get my mandocello back from Gryphon! Mine is oval hole so it will sound boomier than this one which I think is great for ensemble playing.
