    Re: Post a picture of what's on your bench?

    Really nice work, John.

    For those of us who don't know, what is reaction wood?
  2. Re: Ultimate Vintage Snakeheadedness and Chocolatey Goodness

    Great score, Jim, itís in good hands. What I want to know is - how does it smell? Must be quite different than one thatís been played all its life.

    Re: Easiest to learn DAW

    Hey DaveG, if you had any experience with recording or live sound consoles, give Harrison Mixbus a try. It's a very intuitive interface for old "tapeheads" like me, the instructional videos are very...
  4. Re: Article: Revisiting Butch Baldassari's 2002 Blue Moon of Kent

    Great news! Cant wait to hear it - like many, I'm a huge BB fan, and also intrigued by the approach.
  5. Re: Are you ready for a new Carbon/Kevlar Sorensen mandolin?

    Öand after watching the (extremely addicting) Easy Composites video series, kudos as well, Steve. I can only sort of imagine the hours spent researching, reformulating and lying awake at night to go...
  6. Re: Are you ready for a new Carbon/Kevlar Sorensen mandolin?

    Right direction indeed, Steve! I'm convinced - add me to the virtual waiting list.

    Re: Pioneering Women of Bluegrass

    I’m really enjoying the two records, especially the contributions of the mandolin player, young David Grisman.

    I believe the records are originally from 1965 and 1973.
  8. Re: Article: New in Print - Matt Flinner's The View From Here Tra

    Thanks Matt, I’ll be placing my order shortly. $12.00US seems right to me.

    I love that it’s an exercise book as well as the transcriptions. One of my favorite albums.

    Re: Newbie Builds an Electric Mandolin

    Nice. Cherry's a really fine neck and body wood choice.
  10. Re: New tuners to replace Golden Era tuners on a 2015 A mandolin

    Sorry, I should have added that that my experience with GE's was nothing like the Bob's - mine were just stiff.
  11. Re: New tuners to replace Golden Era tuners on a 2015 A mandolin

    I personally love 309's, but on my new mandolin, I've got Schaller GrandTunes, and they're really nice. Also 18:1.

    I didn't like Rubners for the fact they were 15:1, but are obviously well-made,...

    Re: Heart of the Heartland by Peter Ostroushko

    Actually John, I noticed that too, and I'm on a robust fibre connection. Must be an issue with the server host.

    Re: PLEASE! A few Mandola pieces

    Thanks, glad you like it - I did it a good while ago, and of course only hear the warts.

    I think you'll like the shift in tonality. Your Weber is sonically everything my Eastman would want to be,...

    Re: Music from Central France

    Slight regional deviation ... listening to all this great stuff reminds me of when I first moved to Barcelona. I got turned on to an iconoclastic group called Kalakau, who, along with hurdy-gurdy...

    Re: PLEASE! A few Mandola pieces

    Although not in the Joe Walsh/Shlapanitsa/TM Sweeney league, I did a track a while ago in which I used the John Reischman trick of octave-stringing my dola, meaning it's still in CGDA, but I...

    Re: 5-string mandolin for beginner?

    An NFI “+1” for Fanner - he’s making really interesting instruments, makes his own pickups, and answered my questions promptly and politely. He’s seems willing to accomodate the customer’s requests....

    Re: A new Stromberg-Voisinet inspired mandolin

    Agreed about the body shape, Graham. I really enjoyed the one I briefly had, and yours will definitely play and sound even better (to say nothing about having to mess with those finicky original...

    Re: DolinmanX

    Right John! I was thinking Blue Bayou, but regardless Diptanshu, it fits the song really well, and your Gibson is magnificent. Here's to hoping you'll be able to keep the house.

    Re: Adiaha's Bluegrass Camp

    Al Ras is small but really fun, I look forward to hanging out with you there one fine year!

    There's also the Barcelona Bluegrass Camp in March, but I think this is less interesting for you.

    Thanks for this thorough review, Olaf, I've been thinking about tapping into the German scene as well.
