    Re: Cases for Lyon & Healy model A

    Thank you all for you helpful and informative input. Often our queries take us in surprise directions. In this instance, as I have learned, from Steve Kirtley, more about my original 1920's L&H case...

    Re: Lyon & Healy Model A case information

    Hi Sue - nothing yet. At first I assumed it should be completely relined with padding - but Steve says no for good reason. So it does not need much work at all. It will need a slight tear near the...

    When I recently acquired a Vintage Collings made A-style case I was astounded at its quality, design, and functionality - so much so that it stimulated an interest in putting my original L&H Model A...

    I agree 100%. It is subjective for everyone. Ears and fingers will solve the quest, not price tag.

    Flatiron's are known for this - I had the exact same incident as have many others.

    Re: Cases for Lyon & Healy model A

    Actually Jim, I just dug out a TKL A-style case that is not being used. It turns out that the points and body fit fine. However, the storage compartment under the neck is too long thus part of the...

    Re: Cases for Lyon & Healy model A

    Any luck? I'm curious. I think if I could find a nice slim well fitting case for my LH (short scale, asymmetric), I'd sell the Calton. Chances of me truly needing something that beefy are pretty slim...

    Re: In search of a mandolin...

    I would recommend that you get somewhat familiar with the impact of the pick's thickness, material, point shape, and bevel (or lack there of) on the tone and "feel" of a mandolin. To me this impact...

    CMchaney - I don't know if it will help but, seeing as how you are a violinist and may not have immediate access to a 13 inch scale mandolin, I have attached a picture of my hand on the neck of my 13...

    Just a quick note - the L&H at Gryphons has the longer scale. Quite neat that they have one!

    Re: Cases for Lyon & Healy model A

    The biggest difference on my Calton is caused by the neck angle. Thus the case depth is an inch or two deeper than a standard Calton. Because of this I assumed that most standard F cases would not...

    Re: Cases for Lyon & Healy model A

    I'm surprised because I thought the neck angle would be different than most F's? What area did not fit on your latest case? Asymmetrical models?

    Hi Bob - identical to mine. Perhaps they used your template when they made mine (although they did still ask for all measurements)!

    Re: $750 Collings mandolin case at elderlys

    This is well said. Part of the attractiveness of this case is what it tells you about an individual - what he can do when he really sets his mind to something. I'm sure this may sound like...

    Re: $750 Collings mandolin case at elderlys

    I do own a Calton case. A Calton is more protective if you plan on sitting on it or putting in a luggage compartment. This Collings case is the nicest case I have ever owned. It is extremely stout...
