  1. Re: Does your mando need a setup? Learn to do it yourself!

    Just got a copy from Rob yesterday also, when I couldn't find my old copy from a couple of computers ago. Rob is really doing the community a great service by offering this eBook, and anyone from...
  2. Re: David Benedict quit Mile Twelve

    David always struck me as someone who really 'gets it', not just as a mandolin player and a teacher, but also as a technologist who understands how to leverage all the good that social media...

    Re: RIP Arthur Stern

    I have not met Arthur personally but have always enjoyed reading his posts. And being from CA, it's always a blessing to find other fellow mandolin enthusiasts online. He will be sorely missed.

    Re: RIP Nanci Griffith

    Hearing the news on the radio really stunned me. So young, and gone too soon. A friend from college introduced me to her while we were in school, and I went through all of her albums on a loop for a...
  5. Re: What artist/album got you started with Trad?

    Prior to the Pogues I had never listened to anything that could be remotely considered trad. But it was really Planxty's first album and the De Danann Best of album that got me hooked. I was mainly...

    Re: Raising 12th fret, worth it?

    Not local in OH, but you may want to reach out to Bruce Weber in MT to get his input, and consider shipping your mando to him for a setup. I recently sent my mandolin to him, and he completely...

    The new madno sounds great, and you are nailing those triplets like nobody's business. Great playing Shaun.

    Re: The end of my playing days.

    I haven't really checked in much for the past couple years, and just saw this. Ivan is one of those members I recognize instantly, and I've always valued his input and knowledge on all things music,...
  10. Re: Nyberg Flattop Mandolin Build Thread

    Blown away by how gorgeous it is. Was going to ask what's the scale length but saw it on Nyberg's facebook page (14"). Congrats. Hope to see you playing it on your youtube channel soon.
  11. Re: Nyberg Flattop Mandolin Build Thread

    Very nice Shaun. Can't wait to see the finished product. A friend had a Nyberg octave in the late 90s and I've wanted one since. Lawrence is the real deal.

    Re: Cherokee Shuffle - Emory Lester

    Amazing. Emory is a great player and this is one of my favorite tune.
    And I can't help but wonder when we'd be able to see this type of performance IRL again. Sigh.

    Re: Informal Poll

    When the day comes where spending 10K is like me spending 1K today, sure I would.

    That's probably just another way of saying, probably never.

    Re: Reduce costs pleased

    I know this may sound like hyperbole, but we are in unprecedented times. I think we are right to be nervous and must do what we can to ride out this storm. For me, while I wasn't in the mandolin...

    Re: Sierra Hull tour

    I should clarify that the cancellation was mandated by the venue which is part of the University of CA system. They are moving all classes online and cancelling all public events through early May....

    Re: Sierra Hull tour

    Just got an email from the local venue that all events are cancelled through 5/10, which includes Sierra's show on 4/21. Super, super bummed. I was so looking forward to it.

    Re: Thank you Scott and Dan!

    To support such a big and longstanding website/forum such as the Cafe is no small feat. My hats off to Scott and Dan for all their (impossibly) hard work for maintaining and improving the site. As...

    Re: Andrew Marlin's Pick

    Interesting. When did Andrew start playing a Gibson? I am so out of the loop. I'm looking forward to seeing Mandolin Orange when they come to town next January.

    Re: Alec Finn RIP

    I was just listening to the album he and Frankie Gavin played together last night (I called it the Finn Gavin album). What a masterpiece. Every piece on that album still moves me. Can't believe it's...

    I remember Paul's long time contribution to the cafe fondly and he will be missed. He's one of those rare gem that makes the cafe, and the musical community at large, such a great place. I only wish...

    Re: Two Stanley V-5 Mandolins

    Just FYI - Carter's from 2016. And that one piece back is just gorgeous. If I have the coin I'd probably order both and see which one I like more.

    Re: Pava Mandolins

    I've had a lot of mandolins come and go, but I still miss Pava #52. It definitely prefer a 0.016 on the A, and I think that's what they are shipped with. I used a TAD60 on mine primarily as it seemed...
