  1. Re: Happy birthday to me - My new Pomeroy #274

    Someone (not me of course!) should start a Pomeroy registry.
  2. Re: Happy birthday to me - My new Pomeroy #274

    I play Irish and old time on my Pomeroy oval and love how it sounds. But I've played it in a bluegrass jam in a pinch and it performed well. Enjoy your beautiful mandolin!
  3. Re: Vintage photo of a Lyon & Healy mando cello

    I was wary of reproducing a photo the seller clearly didn't want copied. However I found another copy of it.

  4. Vintage photo of a Lyon & Healy mando cello

    Thought some might be interested. I'd buy it if the price was more reasonable.
  5. Re: Kentucky K1000 Master Model need help with serial number

    To broaden the subject a bit, I wonder if they have changed their system. My newish KM950 has a serial number 20010169. But there is no 20th month and I'm sure it was made more recently, not in...

    Happy birthday to the best site on the web (well, maybe after the New York Times)!

    Unusual instrument

    I came across this mandolin in a photograph from about 1930, possibly taken in Italy. A two-point f hole instrument that looks like a flat top and has a Lyon and Healy style headstock. Look...

    Re: Raccoon In The Attic (jig)

    I live in Toronto (why so many Toronto stories?) and had a raccoon family in my unused garage one summer. This summer I cleaned it out wearing a protective mask and gloves.

    Once I came downstairs...

    Re: How many Mandolins to own

    Guess I'll chime in. I have an F5 (for bluegrass), and an A oval (for old time and Irish), and a good but less valuable A5 for travel and just for fun. I don't include the two flat-tops that I...

    Pomeroy workshop photos

    As the happy player of a Pomeroy oval hole (#258), I've wished for some workshop photos on Don and Josh Paine's site. But I've just discovered some on Flickr. For those interested.

    Re: Gold Tone TG-18

    I have a TG-18 that I used to play Irish music and like it a lot. The reviews seemed to have been mixed so I was surprised when I tried it. It's been quite a few years since I got to try a...

    And of course there is the espresso machiato, which is espesso with some milk and foam.

    Just to digress again.

    Re: Two Kentucky KM950s that got away.

    Just thought I'd let people know that another KM950 has appeared on Amazon Canada. Right now the price is 1630. Canadian (already a good price) but it might go down. I'm very happy with mine. It was...

    Re: My new Aria M-300

    That instrument was sold under a few different names. Including El Degas in Canada (the importer). I had one for a while. It was a fun instrument, clear tones, a bit on the bright side, induced not...
  17. Re: OM closed position fingering and pinky and FFCP

    I don't know if my own experience is of any help, but here it is. I've owned a number of tenor guitars and have usually sold them because of either frustration at the scale length or because they...

    Re: Hamlet Two-Point Review

    Beautiful instrument, Kevin, use in good health (as my mother would say). As someone with a partner who has been many a thesis advisor, I have seen so many struggling students, made worse by the...
  19. Re: Eastman oval-hole vs f-hole: Difference in access to upper fr

    The sale length of most ovals and Fs are actually the same. They are for Eastmans. As a result the bridge gets placed differently (as you can see), which also effects the tone.

    Thanks, Bob. Three isn't enough? An F5, an A5 and an A4? Don't encourage me!

    Re: Two Kentucky KM950s that got away.

    A follow up. Well sure enough another KM950 showed up on the site. It listed at 1800 Canadian. After two or three weeks it went to 1300. I told myself that if it went below a thousand...

    Re: "The Great Mandolins" postcards

    I like them too, Sue. The second set has sold. Guess I'll stick to historic pics of players.
  23. Re: Tear drop or pear-shaped A style--what's your preference?

    Nicely said, Jeff. I suppose I ought to give my own opinion (which, as Monty Python said, is my own. Well, that was 'theory' but same thing).

    I started the thread because over time my preference...
  24. Tear drop or pear-shaped A style--what's your preference?

    A somewhat trivial question, although not in terms of aesthetics.

    Some A style mandolins are in what's usually called a pear shape, after the old Gibsons. Modern examples: Heiden, Pomeroy,...
