    Re: Caleb Klauder & Reeb Willms duo videos

    Strings for MB-Jr?

    Hi,

    I bought a 1925 Mandolin Banjo Jr. a few years ago and never did much with it. Now I'm learning some Charlie McCoy tunes and the MB Jr has suddenly elbowed its way to the front of the class....
  7. Re: Anyone know the history of Loar price changes?

    Yep agree and thanks also to Jeff. I think my source used a CPI calc as well. But yea,there have to have been a few years of nearly exponential increases to get to where we are today. One...
  8. Re: Anyone know the history of Loar price changes?

    I was interested in what actually was the relative value of $900 1974 dollars today. The interweb tells me 900 1974 dollars is equal to about $4700 2017 dollars. So the purchase of that Loar in...

  11. Re: Pros/Teachers - What is the most important tip you can give?

    Thanks both to FarmerJones and Relio. Both of your responses are really helpful. I will admit Relio that when I learn a tune I focus playing the melody much more than rhythm so I need to even that...
  12. Re: Pros/Teachers - What is the most important tip you can give?

    My biggest challenge is in memorizing chord progressions for the tunes I play. I can learn a melody and recall it even if I haven't played that tune in a few weeks. I learned Arkansas Traveler last...

    Re: Seeking info about my 1923 A4

    The nut on mine is 1 1/8". I have considered it could be a 1922 but according to Spann's Guide FON 11785 was the first run of A4's in 1923. I guess the question is were A4 paddleheads produced in...

    1923 Gibson A4

    I picked up this Gibson A4 in Halifax a couple of weeks ago. Clearly she's a player, not a looker. In the shop she was marked "1922" but judging by the serial # and FON she's a '23. One day I'll do...
