    Re: New Carlo Aonzo Perfetto Mandolino

    Mille grazie, Martino! From Calace to Jethro Burns. The mandolin sounds wonderful.

    Carlo Aonzo plays Cielo Stellato

    Carlo played this many years on his VHS performance tape. This is his recent recording of this lovely Calace piece.

  3. Re: Right-handed fiddle player, left-handed mando player

    That is brilliant, Niles! There is nothing like getting completely out of your comfort zone. And the experience is also amazing to me, both that you stuck with it for enough time to learn much from...
  4. Re: Right-handed fiddle player, left-handed mando player

    It is interesting how the thread as migrated to a discussion of left-handed fiddling. The OP already plays fiddle right handed for some reason—maybe he was forced to do so as a child. In prior...

    I did a quick search and found this coffee house that has a monthly open mic: https://www.sentientbean.com/events/fcpc-open-mic-night-8e9a9-rj4nd-feh8e

    Then I did a search for bluegrass in...

    Re: Orchestra

    Heady, octave mandolins in the Europe are usually called mandolas and what in North America we call mandola (tuned like a viola) is called alto mandola or even mandoliola.
  8. Re: Lyon & Healy model A - appreciated more every day

    I think mine is in the same era as yours, Tim. I will take mine out today and play it—it's been way too long. It's a later short-scale A pro labelled Washburn (not Lyon & Healy). Also, funny is that...

    Re: What kind of Mandolin

    I love oddball mandolins but I was going to suggest you replace the banjo tuners. Actually, now that I look at the headstock it is probably way too narrow for any tuners except maybe Pegheds, Wittner...

    Re: Odd Gibson A4 on eBay

    Here's some photos. I agree that refinish looks like Gibson maybe 50s or 60s.

    Re: Anyone else have no players near them?

    Daniel, I just checked the map and you and I are actually in the same situation. I am also retired and live one hour from New York City—it looks like you are 1 hour from Savannah. My closest music...
  13. Re: Right-handed fiddle player, left-handed mando player

    Very strange. Have you tried playing your fiddle lefty? I am not sure how you are used to stopping the strings for notes using the left hand on the fiddle but you would not do the same on the...
  14. Re: National Mandolin Tailpiece, repair or replace?

    Yes, that is what happened to mine. Cracked along the fold in the metal tailpiece.

    Re: What kind of Mandolin

    It looks like a mandolin to me and the tailpiece resembles those made in Germany so it is possible that is where this was made. The headstock does not resemble the Italian or American vintage...

    Re: What kind of Mandolin

    Post some more pics. We can't even tell if it is a bowlback or a flatback and I have a feeling those may be banjo-style tuners which would be unusual. Show us the side and any details that might give...

  23. Re: Open Back / Old Time Banjos - Comparisons to Mando Builders

    I started playing old time banjo and fiddle back in the 1970s when there were very few modern banjo shops and most of the players I knew played old/vintage banjos. You can still get a great sounding...

    It sounds like you loved the Northfield OM. Personally, if you are doing solo work with whatever instrument I would think an mandocello would be less versatile than either a mandola or OM. I would go...
