    Re: Who makes a good Fiddle/Mandolin case?

    I received a flyer on the new double case from Calton several weeks ago. I didn't buy one.

    1. The case is enormous. There is virtually no utility in it for me given its size and weight. If...

    Re: Two mandolins from the same maker

    I did have two Gil's at one point. That was a treat, but I only really played the same one, so I ultimately let the A model go (and it seems to change hands a lot...) But, I only have one Jon Cooper...

    RIP Arthur Stern

    I haven't seen it mentioned here, but Arthur was a friend to everyone in the mandolin world and a brilliant artist. He was a long time forum contributor and a fountain of knowledge and experience...

    Re: Mando vs. Mandola for swing jazz

    Johnny Gimble played a 4 string mandolin tuned as a mandola. Aaron Weinstein posted a couple of videos this way as well.

    Re: Hamlett Pick-Off!

    I like the ProPlec and the Dawg picks best and the Primetone 1.5 guitar shape right there with them.

    Re: Looking for something darker and throatier

    For 5k-ish I'd be looking at a used Ellis A model. They are on the darker, bassier side of traditional.

    Re: Who makes a good Fiddle/Mandolin case?

    I owned a Cedar Creek mando/fiddle case for a while. It was HUGE to say the least. Convenient in some ways, but bulky by any standard. I found it much easier to walk jam sessions with my two...
  9. Re: Mandolin Tasting: Gibsons, Buckeye, Duff, Northfiled

    Thanks for doing this. I haven't watched the reveal yet, but I've listened to the original several times over different speakers. My pick 6 is my favorite, and probably not by a little bit. A...

    Re: Amazing Nugget F5 at Carter's!

    Ross is a killer fiddler and mandolin picker. His sister plays and sings for Asleep at the Wheel. Much talent in that family!

    Really nice picking all around!
  14. It will be interesting to see how this plays out....

    It will be interesting to see how this plays out. I've used both services, and their use cases for me were slightly different. But, Truefire is incredibly affordable (not that Artistworks is overly...

    Re: Compare these 2 mandolin sound samples

    B has more of what I prefer, mid-range and depth of tone. A is brighter and more crisp, but just not my preference.

    Re: Powerful A models in the 5K range

    Kimble, Duff, or Stanley. I was going to say Ruhland as well, but the last A model that was listed was well above your budgeted number.
  18. Re: Rest in peace - Choro das Tres loses member

    That's horrible news. I was blown away by their musical generosity and kindness when I met them several years back in Austin.

    Can you really trust the builder? :)

    The silking on that top is stunning.

    Re: Help! Drowned out by fiddles!

    Maybe a little assertiveness is in order, but I notice much of the response you're getting is about how you can be louder. Music is dynamic, the fiddles don't have to be going 100% all the time,...
