    It is and it more than does. Both are good mandolinists. I'll happily see a photo of a healthy Alison any day. Nice to see you again, Plamen.

    She is actually a great mandolinist! GB's mandolin face, i would say. And an absolutely lovely person. We had a very amusing conversation in a local next to Covent Garden and we took this picture in front of the Opera before her performance of Romeo and Juliet that night. I bought her last CD and she gave me another one as a present.

    I hope that she stays in good health and that we will meet again one day.

    Best,
    Plamen

    Ever notice that in every picture of Alison Stevens holding a mandolin, said instrument features a clip-on tuner? No judgment here -- I wouldn't be able to play the instrument without a tuner. But if I was as talented and as well-known as is Ms. Stevens there might be as many pictures of me floating about as there are of her, and I imagine in some cases the mandolin in the picture would not feature a tuner. I love her music; maybe I'd be a better player if I never removed my tuner? I'll have to give that a go, starting tonight . . .

    Un5trung, are you sure you're not mistaking her mandolin's headstock for a clip on tuner? Not a tuner in sight on these photos.... These mandolins have a flat plate that comes off the headstock. Not a tuner. Here's an example.

    Thanks for those closeups. I thought it was a satellite uplink or GPS device, as her services are so much in demand she must be accessible worldwide at all times. Now I see it's all wood, so there goes that theory ...

    Sierra Hull has a new instructional video out and it's really something. This one has our full support. This is the high-resolution version below so it may be difficult to stream unless you have a good connection. The DVD is officially released Tuesday but available for pre-order now.

    When I saw the Punch Brothers in concert recentlly Chris, Critter, and Noam all used clip on headstock tuners throughout the show, and Chris tuned after every number. It actually made me think I needed to tune more, as I usually check with the electronic tuner when I start practicing and then just tune by ear from there unless something gets really outta whack. I'll readily agree I don't necessarily like the look of the clip on tuners, either, and I was a bit surprised by their use, but I guess when you go at it as hard as they do with vintage instruments it's a necessary evil...also, I guess you can add this to the list of reasons some dislike them so passionately on here!!

    Looking forward to checking out Sierra's vid when I'm at a better signal...

    Here's a pic of Janelle Wilson from pYvotal playing an IV kit emando that I built. Janelle plays a violin, keyboards and guitar as well as the mandolin. pYvotal is made up of high school and college age kids and they play mainly contemporary christian music in and around the San Diego area.

    OK, so is not a mandolin but it is a 1917 Gibson style O being played by runway model ( and wife of Jack White ), Karen Elson. Great shot of the guitar.
