    Re: Alec Finn RIP

    Kevin, thanks for this amazing history on one of my ITM heroes! I recently got hold of a bowlback trichoro and am doing my best to make heads or tails of it. They are definitely a challenge!

    Re: 3-Part Chris Thile Master Class online

    I actually felt a little embarrassed for them. It seemed the people running his live stream didn't have a lot of experience. I may be wrong. Best made plans, and all that.

    A bit of interruption...

    Re: 3-Part Chris Thile Master Class online

    The itinerary that I received says the classes start at 11am and the "After Class Chat with Cocktails" starts at 12:30pm. These same times are listed for all three days.

    I am in the Mountain time...

    Re: 3-Part Chris Thile Master Class online

    I was able to get a spot in the 3-day VIP package. I guess it sold out rather quickly. Surprise, surprise! ☺️ Sounds like he could offer more events like this.

    Re: Update From The Mandolin Store

    I bought my first mandolin from Dennis back in 2003-04 timeframe and have had nothing but a great relationship with him since then.

    Then there was a great day he decided to move TMS out here to...

    Re: Live from Here is no more

    Hey! Don't I still get credit for making the call on Thile taking over PCH from Keillor!??!? :)

    While this is a huge letdown, musical evolution is neural. This won't be the last we hear from...
  7. Re: Article: The Mandolin Store Moving to Tennessee

    Got a chance to stop in last week for what will likely be my last visit to TMS-AZ.

    I played two Weber Octaves (the necks are still WAY too big on these things!), a Pono GOM, followed closely by a...
  8. Re: Tom Bedell's TED Talk on sustainable woods for instruments

    Thank you, Mr. Bedell! Wise words.

    I'm liking what I'm seeing coming from up there in the PNW. Along with a conscience in manufacturing TOH are building some nice, nice stuff; Dennis (at the...
  9. Re: Octave Mandoline - where to buy a good one in or around Germa

    A sleeper (not very well-known, internationally) in the Czech Republic is Roman Zajíček and his Rozawood instruments. I have owned two of his OM's and they are world-class. They're not cheap, but...

    Re: post a video of yourself

    Howdy!

    This is mostly to give a look-see at my lovely Arches F4. Born in 2005, I am it's second owner. It's my main player and probably will be for some time to come.

    I really, REALLY hope...

    Re: Matsikas Zouks

    LOL! Me too! That's always a bummer part when picking up a bowlback.

    This recent trip to TMS I made it a point to try a few different ways to work around (pun intended!) and get comfortable with...

    Matsikas Zouks

    I am enjoying learning to play the Irish Zouk at the local ITM sessions.

    I have also always been a fan of Alec Finn and his style on his 3-course Zouk. The DaDannan stuff, and many of his other...

    Was #179 one of the two I had the pleasure of playing at the LT Retreat all those (20?) years ago? Do you still have both of them? Quite the pair they were!

    Re: Where are the Eastman OMs?

    Dennis & Brian have one at the Mandolin Store. I played it yesterday. It surprised me how well it was built. I figured they'd be bare bones, but this had a great feel to it. I only spent about 5...
  16. Re: Finally! Got My Hands on a Flatiron Zouk! (relocated)

    Good point. Luckily, this one has a truss rod as it needed some tweaking. The action was quite high when I got it.

    Actually, I was still a little worried after 3-4 days of adjusting the truss...

    Very nice! I'd love to see pics.

    Mine is Koa. It has become my #1 for session playing. It cuts really, really well.

    Thanks, Fella's! It's really been a fun instrument to play.

    My "New-To-Me" Irish Bouzouki, made 30 years ago at a little shop in Bozeman, Montana. ;)

    It's a Flatiron 3K Zouk circa 1988.

    My "New-To-Me" Irish Bouzouki, made 30 years ago at a little shop in Bozeman, Montana. ;)

    I tuned it to ADAD, started messing around with it and came up with this little minute-long riff.

    Re: Arches Update

    Almost 15 years later and I now own this beauty (the F4). I've had it for a few months and am incredibly happy with it.

    Thanks for the offer, Jim. I'd love to take you up on it, but unfortunately any funds that would have allowed me to bring this one home are going away next month, right around the 15th.
