    Curt Mangan Strings - Wonderful

    Hi Everyone,

    I recently ordered two sets of Curt Mangan mandolin strings and, for now anyway, have found my new favorite strings.

    Right, same with guitar - Jacob mentioned this. Ya it's an interesting study - evolution. I like to consider the psycho-social dimensions here - the instrument (its status) is just a victim of all...
  5. Re: Nancy Blake Playing McMichen’s Reel + Jeff Davis on a Gibson

    Norman and Nancy told some amazing and funny stories at Monroe Camp and enthusiastically answered lots of questions from all of us. Someone needs to record them for hours and write it all down. I'm...

  8. Re: Norman Blake & Saint Elmo Slim - T.A.G. Railroad Rag

    I really enjoyed this, thanks for posting!

    I've been listening to a lot of Peter Ostroushko lately. You can hear the musical kinship in this composition.
  9. Re: Norman Blake & Saint Elmo Slim - T.A.G. Railroad Rag

    The mandolin is a Lyon & Healy style B with stairstep or art-deco peghead, 13 3/4" scale, and a low 3 digit serial number.
    The bridge has an ivory saddle inlaid into it, which appears to be factory...

    Re: Monel strings

    I don’t believe the Curt Mangan monels to be “coated” strings like Elixirs; rather, the wound strings employ monel, an alloy that is resistant to corrosion.

    What a fascinating arrangement. I liked it at first and it grows on me more every time I go back and listen to it. I can't help but wonder what people who don't know either Norman or Tony's version...

    “who else should I be listening to?“
    Bill Monroe - Bush, Grisman, Wakefield all listened to Bill Monroe. It all goes back to Mr Monroe.
