  1. Re: What if I removed the nitro finish from the sides of my mando

    A question for those who know, NOT a suggestion. If the OP peels off the nitro, could he then apply Tru-Oil on the sides for protection? If protection is the goal, and re-finish isn't in the cards,...

    Re: For John Prine

    Then there are three things we can be assured of:

    1. He got a fair deal or even better.

    2. His mandolin was well set-up.

    3. He got great advice.

    Oh, and a fourth, he had a positive buying...

    Re: Post a pic of your cat sleeping in your case

    Minke couldn't be much safer than in a Hoffee! I hope she will be feeling better soon. I have a very soft spot in my heart for older cats. Best wishes to you and her.

    Maybe so, and I am sorry for your loss of your cat. Still, cats and mandolins go great together.

    Re: What?

    I'd sure love it, too. I'm afraid it is not in the budget even at that bargain price. I am currently building a piccolo though, a flat-top. I'll start posting pictures soon. Piccolos are small so...

    Re: Informal Poll

    A few years ago, I'd have said 'yes' and might actually have done it. In fact, I spent several times that on a piano. But only recently I have come to the realization that for me (emphasizing for...

    Re: What?

    Actually Bill, most states have some provision for direct shipment of alcohol to consumers and, lucky you, Oregon allows direct shipment of beer and wine! So you can mail order booze (depending on...
  13. Re: Circa 1924 Lyon & Healy Style B with differences!

    In some ways, the initial confusion regarding what it may or may not be is a shame if it diminishes the instrument in your eyes, because what it is seems pretty good. By that I mean, take away all...

    Re: three players one instrument

    So much for social distancing. Probably should postpone trying this until the pandemic clears! Frankly, I can't think of two other musicians I'd want to be that 'social' with. Well, maybe I can,...

  23. Re: Do You Play ALL of Your Mandolins Regularly?

    Yes, I do. There is usually one getting the most play time, but that top-spot shifts around through my small collection. Even when not the current favorite, all are getting played to one degree or...

    I agree with Roger. Since seeing the pictures, it keeps jumping back into my head. It is just stunning. IMHO, she needs to have it properly appraised. She should learn to play on a lesser...
