    Re: My New Baby

    OK, fine - good to know. As I said, I was expecting something else. But since it's the same on both mandolins and mandola, it stands to reason. Living and learning, one day at a time. :mandosmiley:
  2. Re: Help!!:I have aqquired an Unmarked unnamed 7 string banjolele

    Also regarding price, that auction is a benefit fundraiser.

    The Melody Majors I've seen (only a few, admittedly) have a distinct tailpiece, not the generic clamshell type here. But that headstock...

    Re: My New Baby

    So anyway ... The reason I bumped this thread was because I had a question. The little 3" piece of wood glued inside the top just below the sound hole - that is the brace? Is that really enough to do...
  4. Re: Help!!:I have aqquired an Unmarked unnamed 7 string banjolele

    Well, now! One learns so much around here from so many different directions. I did not know that. And now knowing it, I vow never to so misuse the term again. Uh huh, yeah, right! :)) (There's a...
  5. Re: Help!!:I have aqquired an Unmarked unnamed 7 string banjolele

    I took some time to scan through google images to see if I could find a similar instrument. I found this - the one on the left - and elsewhere a closeup of the headstock. It's not an exact match, and...
  6. Re: Help!!:I have aqquired an Unmarked unnamed 7 string banjolele

    Hello, and welcome to the Café!

    I'm not sure why you call it "7 string." It clearly has 8 tuners, and even 8 strings. :confused:

    Also, it looks like a banjolin (or mandolin-banjo), not a...
  7. Re: How to Keep a Headstock Tuner from Damaging Your Instrument

    You know, back when this thread started, there were lots of responses to the OP - and the title, too, which still refers to the main point concerning damage to your instrument, not appearances - and...
  8. Re: How to Keep a Headstock Tuner from Damaging Your Instrument

    Thanks, I think (ignoring possible irony and/or sarcasm), but you can set your sights a little higher. ;) :grin: :whistling:

    Re: Carbon Fiber Mandolin Raffle

    Yes, well, I did that for a year once, won hardly anything. The fortune had said, "Your luck has completely changed today." I thought that was a good omen; seems not so much. Perhaps my luck hadn't...
  10. Re: How to Keep a Headstock Tuner from Damaging Your Instrument

    Yes, apparently standards have lowered to this extent. :crying:

    We're never going to agree on this. I think it's unsightly, lazy, and damaging (as several have attested) to leave the tuner clipped...

    Re: My New Baby

    Here's a little better side-by-side than previously presented. Mandolin-mandola, in case you're wondering. ;) I get confused myself, and I know what to look for. :whistling:

    Re: My New Baby

    Thanks. I was expecting something longer for a brace. Maybe I'm distracted by the size of guitar braces.

    Yes, I've been putting off changing strings because I think these are pretty new, and I...

    Re: My New Baby

    Thanks, Tim. Maybe you've been spending too much time in the corner ... ;)

    Well, ya know, what else am I going to spend my retirement money on? A sports car? A motorcycle? Nope! :)) And since...
  14. Re: How to Keep a Headstock Tuner from Damaging Your Instrument

    Et tu, Thile! :crying:

    It takes a whole 2-3 seconds to pull a tuner out of one's pocket and clip it on, when needed, ready to tune. The rest of the time, leave it in the pocket, marring neither...
  15. Re: How to Keep a Headstock Tuner from Damaging Your Instrument

    Hey, I think I was in a band with him! :)) Well, probably someone else. In addition to the above, a guitar strap. And even a couple of my harmonicas. And he was the leader of the band. Maybe he...
  16. Re: How to Keep a Headstock Tuner from Damaging Your Instrument

    So what's wrong with this picture? (OK, video.) And I don't mean, Robert Fripp covering Judas Priest, nor him "singing" - all good on those scores. No, it's the tuner on his headstock, and also his...

    Re: My New Baby

    O-o-o-kay-y-y ... So I finally had a chance to meet up with the local fix-it guy, who has a little camera/light doohickey so he could look inside the A-4, and I learned a few things. The FON is 2652,...
  20. Re: Geico commercial with basketball player

    There was a series of these back in 2012-2013. You can look through this thread, but most of them have been taken down. :(

    Re: Unique Ball End to Loop End conversion

    Interesting approach, but still erroneous, inefficient, and ... well, goofy. In order to put both strings of one course on one ball, the ball must be removed from one of the strings. If you've...
