  2. Re: Is Buffing Out High Gloss Finish Scuff Possible And/Or Urgent

    If you still have the mandolin after three years and think enough of it to finally get that work done, that means you probably love your Yellowstone A at as much as I love my Yellowstone 2-pt.

    Re: Mandolin Bridges

    Well worth the repeat. Here's another bridge problem: I bought an old Gibson mandola that had been restored (from what condition, I do not know). The restorer replaced the original bridge with a...

    Re: any repair for a pinky wear spot.

    Bees wax sounds good, but I doubt that it offers any protection. Check out this video of how Willie Nelson's guitar is 'maintained'....
  5. Re: IMO - Why red spruce is the loudest top wood

    And sometimes you have to hold your tongue just right to produce the best result, even with red spruce. :)

    As someone who has spent a fair amount of time and effort looking for "the" or "a" magic...

    Wow, what a flip!

    Nice looking but problematic Gibson H-2 sold a few days ago on ebay for a reasonable amount given its condition: 1918-Gibson-H-2-Mandola

    Nice looking but problematic Gibson H-2 now listed on ebay...
  8. Re: Do you ever sing the notes of a tune while you play it?

    Who was it, Pablo Cassals? Often got carried away during a recording or performance and sang his cello part loudly enough to be heard over the cello itself.

    Re: Who doesn't memorize tunes/songs?

    Sherry, we both started on the mandolin at about the same time. I memorize the tunes for our Newbies Tune of the Month. I think it takes me an inordinate amount of time after 'learning' the tune to...

    Re: eBay sales tax

    I don't know if Reverb is, right now, adding sales tax. But I know they will be if they aren't already. I listed something there and I got notified that it would happen if the buyer had a mailing...
  11. Re: Can we talk about tuning mechanisms for a sec?

    Grover 309 tuners are great, especially for the money. Pricier might be Rubners. I haven't tried the new Schallers. But for less than $100, Grover 309's are very good. IMHO. Sometimes you can find...

    Re: Montana mandolin field trip

    I don't know, but take a look at the far left side of the picture of Mary. That looks like it could be the beginnings of a small guitar or maybe a mandocello.

    You know, I just looked back over this thread and I realized I never mentioned that Bruce and Mary Weber are aka Montana Lutherie, one of Mandolin Cafe's many supporters. NFI on my part except my...

    Sherry, they are in Logan, which you may find on the map if you blow it up to giant size scale. Their mailing address is Manhattan, which is only slightly larger, but at least the post office can...

    Re: Montana mandolin field trip

    They are still in the school but they are looking to downsize. It sounded like they would like to find something near Flathead Lake.

    I still love Oregon but Montana could sure seduce me.

    Re: 3/2 Time Pick Direction

    Sherry, at that speed (half note = 66) a series of quarter notes would still be slow enough that you could go either way depending on how you want to emphasize them. DDDDDD would give a strong...

    Even if you don't want to do setup stuff yourself, it is a "must read" for any mandolin owner.

  22. Re: Third string out of tune below the fifth fret

    Here is a non-adjustable bridge on a 1920 Gibson mandocello currently listed on Reverb (NFI). Note the compensation steps. This is the step pattern I would expect when all strings are wound, even...
  23. Re: Third string out of tune below the fifth fret

    That saddle is definitely compensated for two plain treble pairs and two wound bass pairs. I had the same problem with a mandola I bought. New saddle, properly compensated, solved a whole world of...
