    Re: Andrew York. Home.

    Hi Mandrian,

    Slightly strangely I have also been listening to Andrew York recently and have seen his video of Home. I haven't tried to play it on mandolin, however.

    Your video won't play on my...
  2. Kaki King playing Veillette Gryphon high-strung 12 string guitar

    Not a mandolin, but there are obvious similarities with the double strings and high sound.
    I think this combination of Kaki King and South African guitarist Guy Buttery is very effective.

    Re: Seagull S8 Owners Thread

    Yes, I must admit that I don't like changing the strings on the S8. I don't think there is any alternative to bending the strings, and giving the string a good tug to help it grip once you've managed...

    I definitely would not buy the Stagg. The company make fairly good things like microphone stands, instrument cases etc, but in my experience (and I have seen quite a lot of them) their mandolins are...

    Re: Freshwater Instruments close down

    I must say I do find it very peculiar that this thread has been revived after so long when you know that Mr Freshwater has passed away (some time ago).

    Interesting post Bill.

    I know what you mean, but perhaps you could clarify?

    Re: Best Celtic Mandolin around ~500($700)?

    No I wouldn't say so. I have a fairly large bodied 10 string mandolin by Stefan Sobell. It hasn't stopped me playing smaller instruments, or indeed bigger ones like octave mandolin or tenor banjo....

    Since your sister has asked you to play at the wedding, I imagine that she is happy with the sound you already make, so what you already have would be fine for this occasion.
