    Re: How to appraise a Petersen Bouzouki

    I would guess this is a level 3. If my memory is correct level 1 had no binding and a contrasting wood sound hole, level 2 had binding on the body top and a contrasting wood sound hole, and level 3...

    Re: Petersen Octave Mandolin

    I own a Petersen level 2 (22.5’ scale length) that I purchased new from Gryphon around 2008. I spent some time working out what strings to use and ultimately used the gauges that were on it when I...

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

    I keep a pick in each instrument’s strings. Spare/alternative picks go in a Heartwood secret box, capos go in an old fabric coin purse, and the tuner in a small camera case. I perform mostly at...

    Re: Petersen Octave

    I likewise own a level 2 Petersen with a cedar and koa back and sides. Steve-o, I suspect that you are correct that they are not all that uncommon.

    A level 2 for $800 is quite a bargain. I have...

    Re: Snark vs Korg chromatic tuner

    The high failure rate and inaccuracy of the Snarks (as also mentioned by previous posters) I owned drove me to find something else. I stumbled upon the Korg Sledgehammer Pro and never looked back. A...

    Re: Bouzouki purchase advice.

    A used Petersen would be another option. I have one of his octave mandolins that has served me well.

    Re: Bouzouki description on shipping labels

    How about octave mandolin? Bouzoukis can be seen as a long scale octave mandolin, so I think simply declaring it an OM would work.

    Re: Mandola gigbag - Found!

    I have a waldzither that needs a better fitting case. The waldzither's length and height are roughly the same as your mandola, but it has a 12.5" bout. Any chance this case would accommodate...

    Re: It's official - ZOUK!

    Allen, I agree with you 100%! Frankly, to the extend that idea, I am uncertain why a five course OM is called a cittern (which is really the name of a different instrument). Seven and eight string...
