  3. Re: Fretting intonation issues with Trinity College OM

    A light touch is what you need to apply.... Just enough to fret the string. Of course, too much pressure will sharpen the string. This is no mystery. Technique is your problem.

    Re: Staccato on Mandocello et al

    Or damp it at the bridge with the heel of your hand.

    Re: Another mandocello!?

    Thus proving there IS a market for lower priced mandocello's with reasonable quality.

    I've been telling folks that mandocello was going to be the next big thing for about 3 years.

    Re: Gold Tone mandocello

    RIGHT. Now we know. Yesterday, did any of us know? It's bad form to hide wires when they interfere with the setup and playing of an instrument. Function BEFORE form is the rule.
