    Re: ABC Converter?

    Well, have been running into a ton of issues with most of the programs. Musescore 3 plug in doesn't work. Have figured out a cumbersome workaround (using the source Musescore uses to convert)....

    Re: Dwight Lamb's Danish Tunes

    Have known Dwight for nearly 20 years. There was a Facebook celebration yesterday which I was fortunate enough to be included. He is a true national treasure and the book is a great resource.

    ABC Converter?

    Does anyone know what happened to the ABC converter that used to be at mandolintab.net? Am now getting an "account suspended" message. Was my favorite because it allowed saving to pdf.

    If anyone...

    Re: Why do you like the picks you like?

    Yup. My preferences change as my playing does. Right now, am very satisfied with Dunlop Primetone .96 or 1.0 standard shape. In fact, these have replaced the BC 35 I had been using. That said, every...

    Re: Are People Buying Less Mandolins Now?

    I agree that the lower priced instruments (both new and used) are selling well now. Saw the same article about Sweetwater selling a lot of instruments. Of course, it may have been helped by many...

    Re: Your Thoughts On D'Addario XT Strings

    Have had the custom mediums on my Flatiron for a couple months. Normally don't like the heavier strings, but it seems to work on this particular instrument. As they are coated, made sure all the...

    Re: 1937 Gibson A1

    526 C 6 is the factory order number (FON). According to Spann's book, 526 C is a known batch of A-1 mandolins from 1937. The 6 at the end probably stands for the 6th instrument of the batch. That's a...

    Finnish fiddle tune Kellarin kautta

    Here's my attempt at Kellarin kautta by Otto Hotaikainen. Mandolin is my 1935 Gibson A-50 with elevated fretboard. Probably still a bit fast for schottish tempo. Didn't seem that fast when playing...

    Re: One Mandolin - forever...

    If we include all mandolins played, that makes it a lot tougher. Let's see, there's the great Clark F5, an incredible Gibson Fern, a couple of LaPlant's, Chirps' F4. Hard to say. Might be a...

    Re: One Mandolin - forever...

    Haven't been playing mandolin long enough this time around to be sure about a forever instrument. And I will always own multiple. It's been that way as a guitarist and that's stuck around to...
  11. Re: Kudos to our administrators and moderators

    Agreed. These are among the best I've dealt with on the internet. And are the best in the music groups. Long may they prosper and keep a steady hand upon this group of folks.
  12. Re: Looking for Mandolin Recommendations that hold their value

    Totally agree with this. Only thing I would add is to also look at the Kentucky KM-850. Played one a couple of months ago and it had a great sound for bluegrass. And the price is very much at the...

    Re: Last Mando standing, How to choose?

    Would be tough to choose. Like others, would probably sell a couple of guitars first. For guitars, would keep the Martin D Jr. Does what I need and has a pickup.

    Mandolins. Hmm. Probably Collings...
  15. Re: Time for a New Tapastring Vintage Jack Thread?

    FWIW, Pro Co has a cable with one end 1/4" and the other 1/8".

    Was thinking of using one of those for my Flatiron. Currently has a Barcus Berry jack in it. Will wait until I can take it in. Don't...

    Re: Cost target s $700.. best is an Opinion..

    Others will probably have a better take on this, but in general, Gibson mandolins from the 1960's are not usually well liked. That is often why they seem such a bargain. Poor carving of the top is...

    Re: Gibson F4...1924....1925...??

    But remember, the serial number is sometimes much earlier than the FON. My A Jr. has a 1927 s/n and a 1929 FON.

    Re: Early 90's Gibson A5L

    By this morning, the $1850 one had sold. Hopefully someone here got a good deal.

    Seems to me $2000 range would be a good price for a Carlson signed Gibson. That was the asking price on Flatiron...

    Re: Overtones on A String

    Agree with it likely being sympathetic vibration from the string to nut, or bridge to tailpiece. Also a slight chance it could be the tailpiece itself. My Flatiron has it around the same note. If it...

    When one set of grandparents passed, our family found two cabinets in the downstairs bathroom full of bars of soap. Probably 1,000+ bars. Dating back 30 to 40 years. My grandfather would get it from...
