  1. Re: Are you interested in a new method for the mandocello?

    As a student (with absolutely none of the background and education achieved by those who have posted above) who uses your Calace volume, Florian, I believe your work is the most useful and beneficial...
  2. Re: Are you interested in a new method for the mandocello?

    I would be interested in the approach to sustained notes - where/when to take advantage of the instruments natural sustain vrs use of tremolo.
  3. Re: What price level and up gets you a "lifelong keeper" mandolin

    Here is a recent thread that you may find interesting. In at a café member compares Eastman to a Collings with very favorable thoughts on the Eastman. The discussion suggest that perhaps the high...

    Re: Lyon & Healy mandolin scales

    Dan - On mine I believe Bruce Weber compensated the original bridge when he did a tune up and fretboard work. I think he said the original bridge was not compensated but I'm not sure. And I do use TI...

    Re: Lyon & Healy mandolin scales

    "The link to the Marissa Carroll video in post #12 actually shows her playing a bowl back! Must have been before she joined the L&H club?"

    Louise - oh my gosh! I'm so used to her playing an L&H I...

    Re: Lyon & Healy mandolin scales

    I'm sure I am preaching to the choir but I think my L&H with TI's has remarkably different tones/feel depending on pick types. I enjoy such differences very much. But it tells me videos are better...

    Re: Lyon & Healy mandolin scales

    Before I located my L&H model A (through a surprise stroke of luck), I had one of Peter Coombe's classical mandolins on order. Peter was excellent to work with and a very neat guy. I had no concerns...

    Re: Lyon & Healy mandolin scales

    I have never played a long scale - but the short scale is delightful to play.
  14. Re: Familiarity and the appeal of a specific mandolin

    One of the reasons I became so acutely aware of this phenomenon (again, for me at least) was that I played the Collings nonstop for quite awhile. Then I picked up my LH and found I far preferred the...
  15. Re: Familiarity and the appeal of a specific mandolin

    Yes the sounds are distinctly different but playing them is most definitely different as well - as Louise described above. And, LOL, it's not just you!!!
  16. Re: Familiarity and the appeal of a specific mandolin

    Yes they are the Collings and LH. I do use different picks but I am slowly trying to learn to use the same pick on each instrument. A more pointed pick is a little bit harder to use (for me) on the...
  17. Familiarity and the appeal of a specific mandolin

    I have noticed a phenomena over the last year that I think affects the 'appeal' of a specific mandolin . It is familiarity. I have two distinctly different yet marvelous mandolins. If I play one for...

    Re: Blind test of 6 different bowlbacks

    Thank you so much for this great post. Before I read the reveal I listened to the recordings twice. I had a hard time deciding between 5 and 4. This, to me, so beautifully reinforces how individual...

    Re: Cleaning a fretboard

    Thank you Nevin - that's very helpful. I did some digging and frequently see naphtha (lighter fluid) recommended in lieu of or in addition to a very slightly damp cloth. Thanks again.

    Thank you Nevin. Can you clarify what you mean by conditioning and when (if ever) it might be appropriate please? Thank you. I believe a damp rag is the best for old L&H varnish finishes - the...
