    [QUOTE=JustAlectia;1742650]As for strings you have to replace them if they have this vibration.
    Also, humidity is very important. For example, I live in a quite wet climate and humidity in a whole...
  2. Re: To the multi instrumentalists: which instrument is your no. 1

    Hmmm, in chronological order, I’ve played guitar, mandolin, ukulele, dobro and concertina. I still play all but dobro (Hand issues prevent me playing it). I don’t think I really have a number one,...

    Re: Naming your Mandolin

    I don't name any of my instruments, but my Silverangel was named "Valentina" by Ken Ratcliff.......... not sure if he still does, but he did pencil in a name on all his F's and some of his A's (one...

    Re: Big Muddy bridge

    You may just want to contact Mike Dulak at Big Muddy. He’s very helpful and can probably walk you through a solution.

    Re: Random mandolin sightings

    Only went through the first 5 pages so if it was posted later-sorry. Was watching Milagro Beanfield War for the concertina and noted about 2 seconds of mandolin (Harmony/Kay?) during the harvest...

    Re: Index finger pain

    I figured I'd revive this thread. I guess its been seven or so years (see post #6) since my bone spur issue first materialized. Its also been 7 years of pain free playing. Well, it's back! No...

    Re: Silverangel Econo A #446

    I’m on my third SA. None of mine have had redwood tops so I can’t comment on that, but my current one (an F sn 388) has a spruce top. I’ve had monel strings on it for about 6 months. I’ve found...

    Re: What’s your travel case?

    Re: Ibanez 510

    If you read the specs, the current 510 is all laminate woods-spruce over sapele (sic). Neck is mahogany. For the price it’s a decent mando. The tailpiece on mine needed replacement as it was flimsy...

    Re: New mandolin for an old man

    OK, I’m an old man (72), but I have been playing a while. I’m going to recommend (although it’s totally your-the OP-decision) a mandolin vs an octave to start. More learning resources, better...

    Re: Kentucky Mandolins

    Hmmm, from what I read, it’s just a different color option........ also saw that it’s the same price as the rest of the “270” series. You may want to shop around a bit. Hope this helps.
