  3. Re: Yet another Thomastik-Infield string question

    Back in the 1980s, I had never heard of them but a few players in the NY Mandolin Orchestra were raving about them. I put them on my 23 Gibson A and absolutely hated them. If you prefer the bright...

    Re: Virzi today...

    I don't know about powerful but the one I played at Retrofret a few years ago with a Virzi hosted a wonderland of tones to my old ears. I had a blast playing it for about 30 minutes. What a...

    Re: the Vega cylinder guitars... I found the reprint but there is no date on it. I think I bought the reprint from a catalog collector. It is just the string section of a larger catalog. There are...

    Re: Howe-Orme mandolin video

    Ah, very interesting... two of our vintage dealers just posted H-O mandolins in the classifieds today. I can't imagine that this thread and Bob's excellent video had anything to do with that. :)

    Re: id for mandolin with rowing woman?

    I guess it is from Catania, Sicily.
  10. Re: fMRI while playing music video or website?

    Ah, I see. I missed the fMRI … actually missed the “f” and this is used for brain mapping. So you are asking if they mapped brains while playing music or mapped the players brains to find out the...
  11. Re: fMRI while playing music video or website?

    I am unclear what you are asking. Do you mean studies that revealed the effects of humans playing instruments on their brain patterns as revealed in MRIs?

    Re: 12 string half-mandocello.

    Of course, this thread is over 3 years old.

    Re: 1940's GIBSON f4

    The one that Bob linked to has mojo attached: Norman Blake and Harry West. I assume it has some good tonal character, too.

    Re: A model case for old Gibson

    I think those are the ones I bought when they went on sale. Very useful for the ceaseless mandolins to protect them in my closet piles :)
  17. Re: interesting old flat top with a 'scroll'

    Cary, you are amazing at finding some fascinating mandolins! Very cool. I assume you will go to take a look at it in person. I like the “echo” of the scrolled headstock with the scrolled body and the...

    Re: Epiphone Windsor in the classifieds

    $200 back in 1939 was a load of cash and this was decades after the mandolin craze was over. Likely there were a few folks who preferred Epiphone to Gibsons and ordered one sight unseen from the...

    I took up mandola to play the instrument in a mandolin orchestra. Outside of that I used it to back up singers and instrumentalists on a few recordings. Never played the usual tunes that I play on...
