    Re: Obscure, solid Mandolin Players

    Interesting to see this old thread pop-up and open it up and see Cruz Contreras and the CC Stringband as the first post. I'm a big fan of Cruz's songwriting and have seen him a bunch of times. He...

    Re: Mid-MO value

    Sometimes with the Big Muddy/Mid-Mo they will change woods on the same model number, so if you know what woods yours are made from, that might be a differentiator from the new models. Otherwise, the...

    Re: Mid-MO value

    They retail new (Big Muddy, not Mid-Mo, for what its worth) for $855 without any options and about $100 more than that for some different configurations. I would place this somewhere between $650...

    Re: Warm up song

    Used to be Old Joe Clark, but I've switched so it is usually Angeline the Baker now. Just songs that I learned to play and like to play.

  8. Re: Advice on buying a new mandolin? Been playing for 15+yrs

    Yes, they are generally Golden Age tuners. I've round references to Grovers, but I don't know if somebody else upgraded that instrument or if he just used those for a time and later switched to the...
  9. Re: Advice on buying a new mandolin? Been playing for 15+yrs

    Are you open to an flat top? Oval hole? That would expand your number of options. I have a very nice Big Muddy that I bought for less than your budget, and I could put a pickup in it for pretty...

    Shazam does this. I have never used it, so I can't tell you how good it works or how large a dataset it works on.

    Re: Mandolin Builder Recommendations

    There's a thread of mandolins under ~1500 in the forums now that you might check out. A Silverangel, RAG, or Big Muddy might fit your bill, but those are all different mandolins with different...

    Re: greg butler/ viper strut

    I've never heard of him, but as this band looks like they would play music I would like, I clicked a few links. It appears Greg has moved on and they no longer have a mandolin player with them.

  18. Re: Fry’s Mandolin (L. Ricca employees) ???

    Luigi Ricca made mandolins in New York from ~1886 to 1900s. I don't know about the Fry's part of it. My first guesses two guesses are either a split-off of disgruntled employees or an attempt to...

    Re: How Much Difference Do Speakers Make?


    I think your recording setup is going to be more crucial to your final sound quality than your speakers. Are you using a mic? A USB input? A set of PC speakers is relatively cheap, but...

  23. Re: What price level and up gets you a "lifelong keeper" mandolin

    All correct. I'm probably looking at a lifetime mandolin somewhere in the 3k range. Which can get me a really great instrument. I have more money than that, but also house project and other items...
