    I think these are resonance string guitars - the extra strings are not played but make sympathy tones for a long sustain (just what you want to avoid between bridge and tailpiece on mandos, but here at least they can be tuned properly).

    Bertram - they're not "resonance string guitars." I don't think there is such a thing. Perhaps you were thinking of guitars with sympathetic strings? The low strings are called sub-basses, and they are actually plucked and played deliberately. These instruments are called harp guitars, and are decended from theorboes and archlutes and the like, which were played in similar fashion. There are a few mandolins made in this style too.

    Seems like these harp guitars are related to the "Schrammel Gitarre" from Vienna, which also has additional bass strings on an second neck. They also have a musical genre called "Schrammel Musik".
    On "Serenata" from Beppe Gambetta/Carlo Aonzo, Beppe is playing such an harp guitar, which was reconstructed by an italien luthier. They wanted to play their italien "turn of the century music" on authentic instruments. Beppe told very interesting storys about this subject at the concert.

    Cheers

    Here in Vienna, "Schrammel" is alive and well. It is a typical folk music from Vienna, sung in Vienese accent and the lyrics are either funny, morbid or obscene; the good ones are all three at the same time.

    The guitars that are known in the states as "harp guitars" are called in Austria "Schrammelgitarre" or sometimes "Kontragitarre". To the best of my knowledge these instruments were invented in Austria. Don´t quote me on that, though!. They still pop up occasionally on flea markets, allthough most of them are in a sad shape.

    grandmainger, I am so proud to own a Flatiron mandolin; she would have made a great national sales rep!

    Here's Frances Cunningham of Nashville, bouzouki (10 string - maybe that's a cittern?) and mando player #- she has played/plays with various Celtic-flavored groups I'm not that familiar with, but I've been able to hear her play several times at the Nashville Contradances.

    Hey! I remember Frances from Zoukfest #1. How cool, I'll have to check up on her stuff.

    circa 1998, zoukfest1:

    Beth's actually 50% of why my CD was called "shatter the calm". We'd both just received our Steve Smith zooks (her's was the one made just after mine) and started WAILING on them in what we thought was a quiet alcove at the cavernous cellars of an old brewery that were host to ZF 1. Actually, it turns out there was a quiet slow teaching session below, which we more or less nailed with a neutron zook bomb. The guy leading it stormed by saying "nice tune, what's it called.. SHATTER THE CALM??"

    Hey ... I recognize Eva Scow from a jam at last Strawberry. She and her teenage, giggly friends wandered into a jam, where she (of course) blew everyone away before heading off into the evening ... perhaps in search of fun with people closer to her own age. She has a great latin flavor to her playing.

    Note: I was already being way out picked before she arrived, and so I put down my mandolin *fast* when she joined that circle.

    - Benig ... who keeps an 'unblurred' Milla photo at home, to peek at from time to time. Ahhh. What a beautiful Flatiron!
