    Re: Mandola and standard notation reading

    Middle C has a frequency of 261.626. It is in the middle of a piano keyboard. The mandolin, mandola, and mandocello have different strings that place middle in different positions. Those...

    Why play the mandocello horizontally when it might be better played vertically like a cello?
    Put it on a short step stool or something and give it a try.

    I took cello lessons for two years. My...

    Re: Why Mandolin?

    My mother forced me to take piano lessons. Years later I learned the teacher did not like little boys. Piano did not last long. Begging for a different teacher did no good.

    Re: Lamb Mandolins

    Weber mandolins are too bright for me. Have a Weber mandola that is great.
    Tried one Northfield, it was very nonresponsive.

    Re: El Charango...

    The only charango I have been around was in a community band in Moab, Utah. It was made with an armadillo shell.
    It was very loud. The player was asked to play with less volume because he was...

    Re: When or why to upgrade

    Try mandolins in the shop.
    Then go home.
    Go back another day and try them again.
    This is a very subjective process. What you like one day may not be what you like the next time.
    Go home and...

    Re: considering an oval hole mandolin

    Bought a Weber F14-0 less than an hour ago through Reverb.
    Sold my Weber A oval Vintage and missed it.
    Risky buying something I have not held and heard, but it will probably be worth it.

    Re: what do you use.

    Thile's mandolin was made in the 1920's before his parents met. I suspect it did not look good when he got it.

    The Collings tailpiece with the recessed hooks is the worst design I have seen. It is pretty, but a lot of trouble. Have squeezed the loops and bent the end of the loop and the strings still come...
