    Re: Bag or case

    I recently got a Travelite, and with my Eastman and Tone-Gard, it's tight. Reviews on that case with Tone-Gard are mixed on this forum - seems to depend on the mandolin. I'm not wild about the feel...
  2. Re: Stewmac shipping outrageously expensive and NOT eco-responsib

    Not S-M but I was just notified a couple days ago that Elderly had finally got stock of a music/mando book I'd been wanting to buy. $25 for the book. The only shipping option was $15 for 2-day FedEx!...
  3. Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    "Luthier's Dream" is where I stopped reading.

    Re: Secure Endpin?

    Surprised I didn't see it mentioned yet, but I've used that white "teflon" tape - just once around stretched tight is usually enough. (You'll find in the plumbing supply aisle at any hardware/home...

    To get the SM81 into a "mini recorder" mentioned just before the adaptor comment, you *might* need both a battery-powered phantom power bump in the cable as well as an XLR to 3.5mm...

    Re: Zenison

    Somebody buy one and give us a review on YouTube.

    Could be from the Rogue factory ($156 for f-style at Amazon), using even cheaper materials, like the sandalwood back and sides? I'm guessing a...

    Re: mandolin with violin music

    You can take usually anything written or transcribed for 2 violins and put a couple of 'C' instruments like 2 mandolins or 2 flutes, or mix them up, and give it a go. A quick search shows this looks...

    Re: Shure sm57

    I've hesitated to weigh in because I've never performed live with a mandolin, but I have recorded a good number of acoustic open mics with all kinds of instruments and performers. When the OP wrote...

    Re: Apollo Mike Marshall picks

    I don't really have any update from what I posted initially. I never thought I'd buy a pick this expensive, and probably expressed that verbally more than once, but just ordered another one.

    Re: Mazas 12 Little Duets #1 Rondo

    Thanks for listening and commenting! Sifting through some of the takes (just left the Zoom running): here's the Andante from that same duet. (We let the tempo get away a bit, and dynamics are still a...

    Re: JJB pickup choice for cittern

    No idea, but it might be helpful to have a good "blueprint" of how the bridge and strings cross over the area behind the X, and if there's a backing plate (as with steel-string guitars) so you have...

    Re: China mandolin supply

    I'm kind of wondering what's in those ships, but mandolins probably aren't what most folks are interested in.

    It feels like, based on browsing, that the lower end of the supply has eased up some,...

    Mazas 12 Little Duets #1 Rondo

    Our son stopped by for a week+ of working from our home (a break from his NYC apartment), and brought his mando along with some easy duets. We didn't get much time, and my reading skills suck, but we...
  15. Re: Suggestions for types strings and a mandolin

    Eastman probably has the narrowest spec for width at the nut (1 3/32Ē) in current production that youíd find new (below $1k). Whether that neck would be easier or not is a different matter. You might...

    Re: Cost for refret

    If you put on new frets at the nut end, and don't at least shim the nut, so much new [fret] material is filed away it's kind of pointless. And, if the frets have been dressed even once, it's probably...

    Re: Loars at Carterís

    At some point, things enter what is essentially a collectors/antiquities kind of market, and pricing has absolutely nothing to do with their value as a musical instrument.

    Re: What's up with that truss rod?

    Belated follow-up but our son arrived for a visit today and brought his 310F. I was wrong that it was a hex nut because, as the poster discovered, it needs an Allen wrench. This one is 4mm, and...

    Re: Thile using an SM57 mic

    It's an SM57. There's a couple spots where you can see the name/logo, and they do have a cardioid pattern on them, too.

  23. Re: ArtistWorks discount - What do you think?

    Not much different than any other service you sign up for anymore, or at least most of them, from my experience.

    But, if you pay with PayPal, they also record the auto-renewal and let you know...
  24. Re: ArtistWorks discount - What do you think?

    Re: Ookpik Waltz- Chris Thile
