    Re: My mandolin got eaten by a Stratocaster.

    Pedals! I'm trying hard not to venture down that rabbit hole, but I would really like one of those fancy reverb units that can do all the ambient and spacey tones. One of those looping devices...

    Re: Mandolin Orange is now Watchhouse

    It's interesting how things like band names, headstock shapes, colors on instruments, etc, etc, hit people differently. Years ago when I first saw the name 'Mandolin Orange,' I thought it was...
  4. Re: How to Keep a Headstock Tuner from Damaging Your Instrument

    I've always been firmly against leaving a tuner on the headstock because of the look, but the little D'Addarios are a genuine nightmare to remove so I've caved in at last. I leave mine turned around...

    This really is a wonderful little quip. I'll be borrowing it myself.
  7. Re: How has the mandolin changed your guitar playing?

    I've tried a few times and can never make any sense of DADGAD. The few things that I figured out that sounded musical turned out to be the same stuff I usually play, only in a different shape! Ha! ...
  8. Re: How has the mandolin changed your guitar playing?

    I've been out of the loop for a while on new guitar models but recently discovered that PRS makes a parlor. Here is Sierra giving one a workout. I want to find one of these and give it a try. They...
  9. Re: How has the mandolin changed your guitar playing?

    I seem to always go back to a Fender heavy on mandolin (using rounded shoulder) and a .88 on guitar.

    Wow, I'd never heard of this builder but his stuff looks great. Here's a video sample of one of his mandolins I found on his IG page. It sounds great.

    Re: What do you keep your picks and stuff in?

    I keep my picks in an old Altoids tin signed by Tommy Emmanuel. It was all I had in my pocket one night in OKC when I got to meet him after a concert, so he signed it.

    Matt, I’m a pipe smoker and...

    Re: Mandolin world vs fiddle world

    I agree with this. There are gems out there for lower prices. The trouble is finding them. Most shops only have a few mandolins on the wall, if any at all. And buying online lets you try one at a...

    Re: Mandolin world vs fiddle world

    This is a very cool thread. To me, the fiddle/violin is the most fascinating stringed instrument. We have one in the house, but I can’t do anything with it. Even though I know the fingerings...

    Re: Check out my new truss rod cover.

    That is a great idea for a mandola. “Flame of the West” (if memory serves correctly) is the meaning of Anduril.

    Check out my new truss rod cover.

    I decided that 2021 would be The Year of the Mandolin for me, and that I’d take my playing to another level (so far it’s working). I also decided my mandolin needed a name. I’m a huge Tolkien/Lord of...

    Re: Cullng the herd

    I love acoustic instruments and look almost daily at the Classifieds, CL, GC used, etc, but I find it distracting to own too many. For me it takes the focus off the music I'm playing and makes it...

    I think there used to be more room to haggle and deal on instruments than there is now. The internet has changed everything since everyone can get on and see what said item is selling for elsewhere....
