    Re: Euan Cattanach

    Yes, sad to hear. By a strange coincidence, I was watching one of my favourite fiddlers Pete Clark playing his mandolin the other day and he said it was made by Euan. I remember the TV program from a...

  6. Re: What Irish/Scottish music do Irish/Scottish people listen to?

    Pete,

    Sorry to hear that, but enjoy your retirement. Thanks for the advice you have given freely to me and others over the years. I recently got a Belmuse 4 string and I am very impressed with it....

    Re: Nut width..

    Hi,

    Thatís a good point about measuring the fingerboard width rather than the nut width. I suppose thatís what important at the end of the day in terms of playability. Although some might argue...
  9. Re: Made a Bone Saddle for my F4. Big Improvement!

    Hi,

    That was a nice job you did and it looks the part and you love the sound, so all’s well that ends well.

    I wonder why the saddle on the original bridge you had on the mandolin and the latest...

    Re: CITES Question

    Hi,

    I think I will just keep it unless I find a UK buyer. Selling or buying anything internationally now seems to get more complicated by the year.

    Re: Action high - but why, I cry!

    Hi,

    I would ask them what the action is just now, ie string clearance at 12th fret. If it is around 1.5mm I would not be concerned about the bridge being set low. I’ve had a three Lebedas in my...

    Re: Nut Width Preference?

    Hi,

    I’ve got small hands and think a narrow nut width should suit me best, but in truth I think you get used to any width if you play it enough. I’ve got several mandolins that range from 27mm...

    Re: Best all time Inlay's

    Hi,

    I’ve always loved the look of my Michael Lewis in which he paid homage to the Art Deco movement. He is a great luthier and I hope he getting back to work after a tough time.
