  1. Re: Lyon & Healy model A - appreciated more every day

    Hi Jim - I play mine daily. I actually play all three of my mandolins throughout each week but I seem to favor the L&H. Somehow I got lucky with the three instruments I own. Each is a joy. Kinda' put...
  2. Re: Lyon & Healy model A - appreciated more every day

    Hank - although I don't know for sure, I've always assumed that the A, B, and C models were structurally the same with only cosmetic differences. I've assumed the three styles sound and play the same...

    Re: Oval Hole Picking Technique

    Hi Joe - I did mean parallel. Hopefully I understood Parker's question correctly. The first part of the question was whether or not the pick is tilted towards your feet at a 45° angle on the down...

    Re: Oval Hole Picking Technique

    My experience with working through Calace and other classical methods is that great emphasis is put on holding the pick at a 45° angle, gliding through both strings of the course; and stopping the...
  6. Lyon & Healy model A - appreciated more every day

    My 1925 Lyon & Healy model A with TI flat wound strings is SUCH a glorious instrument for classical. Sometimes I just feel the urge to yak about how much joy it brings me. Every note, for my taste,...
  7. Re: The "legitimate classical instrument" thing..

    Thanks to this thread I am hearing the Modern Mandolin Quartet's Americana album for the first time. Dvorak is one of my absolute favorite composers - particularly his quartet and piano works. This...

    Re: New Carlo Aonzo Perfetto Mandolino

    As I find this mandolin a bit intriguing, I sent a note to the luthier. He is incredibly responsive and helpful. I suspect he would be a super person to work with. For those interested, all of the...

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld Strings

    Jim, there are perhaps other TI strings that might work - but I have had no luck trying to get TI to respond to my inquiries. A double set of TI AC112 guitar strings totals to $52 which is about the...

    I posted this on a separate thread - but then realized it might be more helpful to others to include it in this long-standing thread:

    Re: Vega cylinder back mandola on reverb

    It is indeed a beauty. Bernuzio's told me it was sold which is why it was not on their website and they had forgotten to mark it sold on Reverb. I have never seen a real Vega CB mandola- only an...
  17. Thomastik Plectrum flat wounds on a Burgin octave mandolin

    I recently put TI flat wound guitar strings on my Burgin 23" scale Shanghai octave mandolin (.012, .024, .033, .044). I use TI's on my Lyon & Healy, for which they are perfect, and I was curious...

    Vega cylinder back mandola on reverb

    I am wondering if anyone is familiar with the beautiful Vega model 307 cylinder back Mandola which is on reverb and being sold by Bernuzio's in Rochester, NY? I have sent an inquiry to Bernuzio's but...
  19. Re: The "legitimate classical instrument" thing..

    Hi Jim - Well this is totally off topic, but your comments and background "force" me to take advantage of your presence LOL. Again, I'm just a simple guy who loves all music and have a love affair...
  20. Re: The "legitimate classical instrument" thing..

    To take this just a bit further - why do you thing groups like The Dutch Chamber Orchestra and people like Alex Timmerman and Caterina Lichtenburg have had such huge success (not to mention so MANY...
  21. Re: The "legitimate classical instrument" thing..

    Hi Eoin -
    Very well said and a great little bit of informative "time travel" writing! You described a good frame of reference to answer my original post. Thanks for posting Eoin.

    In my earlier post I referred to a post by Eugene. That was a mistake - I was referring to this post by JeffD:

    Jim -
    Thank you for responding. I cannot tell you where I've heard the thought expressed or necessarily if I ever actually heard the word "legitimate" used in this context. I was trying to reflect...

    Not a musicologist; not a trained musician; just a guy who is crazy about classical
