  1. Re: Do great looking mandolins have to sound better?

    I don't expect a fancy mandolin to sound good but the looks normally follow the quality. Builders of good sounding(expensive) instruments, also tend to make them look good.

    I do want an expensive...
  2. Re: Is there a reason for the fretboard extension without frets ?

    Maybe it's there for a pedagogical reason, to teach players not to dip the pick to deep. :grin: :mandosmiley:

  4. Re: Is there a reason for the fretboard extension into the soundh

    Hehe, I thought of that but it is difficult to make it look nice, you have to move the binding as well, maybe scalloping could be done.
  5. Is there a reason for the fretboard extension without frets ?

    The extension doesn't even have any frets, so I wonder why it is there.

    It's a bit annoying, as I can feel that the pick sometimes touches it

    No matter how you attach to the scroll, it will not change the headdrop tendency, as that is a matter of physics.

    If you suspend something behind it's point of equilibrium the head will drop.

    That's exactly what I found out, when trying it out, so I went backt to strapping around the head,

    But I hate the bootlace up there, so I've made some 1 mm Dyneema string loops, with a button on...

    Re: Old mandolins versus new a conclusion

    I just received my Hora II. It's quite impressive on it's own and then the price/performance factor is good as well. It does need new strings. The two deep pairs don't sound as they should

    I've done some sanding but I'll try: changing technique, a high armrest or a rest just behind the bridge

    Re: Old mandolins versus new a conclusion

    Yes I did but I had a lot of problems.
    When I first glued it, some wood was missing at the end of the break. I filled it with some filler but after tensioning the string, a thin crack developed. I...

    Re: Old mandolins versus new a conclusion

    I was hoping to find an older, cheaper full solid mandolin, that would be as good as a newer, more expensive full solid but I failed.
    So I have sold off 4 old mandolins and bought a Kentucky KM-805,...
  19. Re: Tip for using fingers on the high E string from 7th to 0

    yes I see the idea and have tried it but just now the 4-3-2-1 on E and 5-3 on A seems easier to me.
  20. Re: Tip for using fingers on the high E string from 7th to 0

    Yes that's it. I have decided for the 4321 fingers on E and started practice. Funny that I've never used finger 4 on a mandolin but then I've not practiced any chord playing.

    You are in the start or verse. I'm describing an interlude towards the end.
