    Re: Norman Blake Tunes

    Thanks Jim, you are correct I did win that year playing Bright Days. I've always liked how that tune uses the full spectrum of low end as well as the high end. Which makes it a perfect tune for...

    I do a mix of making my own. I buy the studs, thumb wheels and the top saddle and make the base. Especially since I prefer a full contact base and that way I can also make it exactly the right height...

  10. Re: Good mandolin choice for woman with small hands

    A few years ago I designed and made a mandolin for a woman in Ashville, North Carolina who has small hands. I designed the mandolin with a shorter scale length of 13-3/32” vs. the standard 13-7/8"...
  11. Re: Norman Blake-Original Underground Music from the Mysterious S

  15. Re: Martin Krajicek and "unusually octave" mandolin.

    At 0:23 and 2:11 in the video, they do a close-up of the mandolin and you can see the strings. The G and D have high octave strings like a 12 string guitar.

    Too bad that mandolin Chris is playing can't stay in tune.
