    Re: Just read "MANDOLIN PRICING"

    Me too, as it is newer than my Freestyle ;)
    I need a new (used) car soon, and the prices are scary. I'd much rather shop for mandolins.

    Re: Tell me about Wernick Method Jam Camp

    I'm just bringing one, Charley, the Strad-O-Lin. I think it's my most bluegrassy mandolin :grin:

    The camp is local, Dave, in Contoocook, NH, about an hours drive for me.

    Thanks, everyone, for...

    After a fair amount of soul searching and rumination about my own risk factors and local covid conditions, i have decided to go. I received my information packet yesterday. I'm excited but also...
  4. Re: My First Mandolin- A Keeper or keep looking?

    I'm surprised nobody has yet pointed you toward Rob Meldrum's excellent free setup ebook. Just email him at rob.meldrum@gmail.com and put Mandolin Setup in the subject line.

  5. Re: 1920 Gibson A $500 today only needs repair

    It's sold, you guys. Wonder how much they paid. When I looked earlier, there was at least one offer pending.
  6. Re: My First Mandolin- A Keeper or keep looking?

    I still have my $235 1st mandolin, a KM200S, so I guess it's a keeper of sorts. After some work, it's a good "beater". I took it with me on a trip, and lent it to my brother for awhile.

    In fact, I...

    Re: Homemade Tuning Peg Tool

    A few of the tuners in my Strad-O-Lin are super hard to turn. I think the posts are not fully straight in the holes, or there's play, and there aren't any bushings. I don't really want to change the...

    Re: Oscar Schmidt Tremolina

    I am thinking that if I can find a piece of material that has a similar texture, that I might try it for case repair. I could use it to imprint a correct/similar texture on the repair area. I've...

    Re: 1898 Martin Style 6. What should I do?

    Glad you made a good trade. I saw that your NH craigslist post was gone, and was wondering what kind of a deal you'd made.

    Re: Regal Octofone

    I feel a little bad. My former case was nothing to shake a stick at, but it wasn't a gig bag.

    My DH took it to the Swap Shop at our local Transfer Station. Hopefully it found a new home.

    Re: Mandola method?

    I asked this question one time before :

    Where are the mandola books?

    Your mileage may vary, as I am a newbie, but the most useful thing I've found thus far is Niles Hokkanen's little book The...

    Re: What's the best way to dust my fretboard?

    Is canned air just air, or is there some kind of propellant that we wouldn't want on our instruments? I'm a bit leery.

    Re: Pettine method part VI on Google Books

    You're right. I guess my next approach might be to take screenshots of each page, crop and paste them into a page layout program and then export to pdf. Sounds time consuming.

    Is this really a Gibson?

    To me, this is a bit of a strange looking mandolin. But what do I know, really.

    What do you think?
