    Re: Stringing question, new to octave

    My first OM was a Trinity and I had no string issues. You should not have to 'fight' with any string on this OM in my experience. I don't think that .46 will be too light at all. I hope you quickly...

    Re: Collings Vs. Northfield Vs. Kelley

    Exactly. Very well said!
  3. Re: Classical / Neopolitan Mando Builders in North America?

    You might want to confer with Mr. Nyberg about the Lyon & Healy. The original LH's were unique and few replica builders try to duplicate the actual contruction - rather they simply duplicate the...

    Excellent videos - thank you for locating them!
  5. Re: Learning octave mandolin before regular mandolin

    I think the answer is different for each individual. I have a 25" scale octave mandolin. It took a little practice to get used to, but by no stretch of the imagination was the longer scale an...
  6. Re: Hubert Ries (1802-86): Duet for Mandolin & Mandocello (OM/Gui

    LOL and here I thought there was an Embergher behind door #2!

    Seriously, the original post was in Sept, 2018. I only discovered it after you posted yesterday. I'm genuinely surprised the original...

    Re: Collings, Northfield, Girouard

    I certainly see the same thing as Mandobar. I could no longer buy my Collings MT2-V (which I purchased in the fall used) for anywhere near the same price (or at least it seems that way to me based on...
  8. Re: Hubert Ries (1802-86): Duet for Mandolin & Mandocello (OM/Gui

    Very, VERY cool music and playing Martin. A great musical pick-me-up on a Sunday morning. I quite enjoyed this entire thread. Funny how certain kinds of music just make you smile. Thanks for posting...

    Re: Collings, Northfield, Girouard

    These are three very different instruments. They are all well made. But only you will know which one feels and sounds better in your hands. If you can get to a store to try them, it is by far the...

    Easy.
  12. My experience with the WILLHI WH1436H Air Humidity Controller

    Recently I began to suspect my practice room was a bit to dry. So I did a little reading (on the Burgess Violin site among others) and bought a WILLHI WH1436H Air Humidity Controller; Sper Scientific...

    Re: Mando upgrade - opinions sought

    You can put 5 mandolins in a room ranging from $4000 to $7000 and hear and feel a HUGE difference between them and it has nothing to do with the price tag. That's my own experience. Mandolins are...

    Re: It Made the Mandolin Sound Better

    Jim, I just laughed so hard I thought my sides would split!!! Your post made my day. I bet your Twinky stash got devoured too LOL! I live in MA now but had lived in Arizona for 50 years. I'm thinking...
  15. Re: Keeping an A Mandolin in place with rug underlayment

    Sue - Caterina Lichtenburg (who recommends the mat) obviously has some very high end bowlbacks and has used this mat forever. I suspect you don't need to worry about the finish. But you could ask...

    Re: What can you share about Carla Senese?

    Mick - that was a pretty neat reply! Thank you. She seems to be very talented and the very few videos I located were great! August Watters mentioned her once in reference to hearing Calace mandolins....
  17. Re: Keeping an A Mandolin in place with rug underlayment

    Hi Sue - I tried a bunch of stuff, mostly from Joann's, and chamois. None of it was any less slippery than my blue jeans. Then I ordered the mat that Mike's wife Caterina uses, from Terkel, in...

    What can you share about Carla Senese?

    I am not having great luck learning about mandolinist Carla Senese. She does have a Facebook page but it is not very helpful. I've seen a very small number of videos of her and quite enjoyed them....
  19. Re: Lyon & Healy Style A, B, C fretboard - all radiused?

    Louise, Jim, and everyone that posted to this thread, thank you. It certainly sounds like L&H marched to the beat of a different drum and that we've all perhaps learned something together. Pretty...
  20. Re: Best strings for a Lyon & Healy type C mandolin

    I am glad you like that sound. Listen to the lower strings over and over - maybe that will help solve the mystery? Right at the very last I think he hits the g-string and is has that softer...
  21. Re: Best strings for a Lyon & Healy type C mandolin

    CelloMando - I am curious as to how you like the sound produced from this LH (I wish I could tell you what the strings are):

  22. Re: Best strings for a Lyon & Healy type C mandolin

    The most common string exchange on a LH is probably to swap out the TI E-string for a Hannabach E-string ala Caterina Lichtenberg and many German players.
  23. Re: Best strings for a Lyon & Healy type C mandolin

    Hi Joe -
    I have experienced that same "sense of thumps" thing - when returning to the LH after playing a more "grassy" mando or a non-German bowlback. For me I have begun to realize that every...
  24. Re: Best strings for a Lyon & Healy type C mandolin

    For a short while, recently, I got all excited about Dogal Calace strings on my L&H model A - but I have returned to TI Mittels. To me the other strings don't bring out the uniqueness of an LH. But I...
