    Re: Apitius Mandolins

    Yes, Oliver's f-holes are a key part of the Apitius voicing along with his tone bars. Here's a shot under the hood of an Apitius voiced top.

    Re: Apitius Mandolins

    I'm surprised it hasn't sold yet. I'd be interested if Oliver wasn't literally putting the finishing touches on mine as we speak.

    Re: New Mando Suggestions

    At that price point, you're right on the cusp of the next tier up where things start to get really good. I'd suggest considering a used instrument like a Northfield Model M, one might pop up in the...

    Re: Apitius Mandolins

    Oliver only added the "Loar Spec voicing" 2 years ago, so anything prior to that would fall into what he now refers to as the "Apitius voicing" (his standard voicing). From what I've gathered,...

    Re: Foam rubber armrest?

    Why not hardwood? Good ones are rounded over, smooth, and quite comfortable on the arm.
  8. Re: Tips on getting more volume out of a 3 week old Mando?

    Good points have been made here, I won't repeat. But I will say pick thickness is an easy variable to experiment with and can make a significant difference. I wouldn't use anything thinner than 1.1mm...

    Re: Custom Design Picks (Ultem)

    Have you asked Nik at Apollo Picks? The black material he's using for his new Mike Marshall pick is a high grade of Ultem.

    I have to mention that we have an Apitius Mandolin Group here that is a bit quiet. I've been posting my progress photos recently.

    Re: Apitius Mandolins

    Mine will be a Rosine Loar Spec. His 4 F models and 1 A model differ only in aesthetics (binding, inlay, scroll & points). Sound wise, they will be exactly the same across models with the exception...

    Oliver is currently working on my Apitius to be! I'm super excited to get it here in a couple months! You probably saw on his website that his waitlist is closed, but you can contact him about being...

    Re: Thile using an SM57 mic

    Looks to me like a small diaphragm condenser, not an SM57. I spied a glimpse of a polar pattern icon. My casual guess would be a Schoeps.

    Re: IBMA Awards Announcement

    This announcement from IBMA did not include the industry awards, but I figured I'd share this one since it is one of our fellow mando players.

    Re: My MAS is cured.

    I've been using the 1-for-1 system for years, particularly in conversation with my wife. Funny thing though, my total number of instruments has still been creeping up. It's a real head scratcher....

    When trying to establish current value, the first bit of homework I do is check SOLD listings on Reverb, rather than current listings. Current listings only tell you what the owner thinks it's worth,...

    Re: Apollo Mike Marshall picks

    Well, I have to caveat my response with the disclaimer that I don't have a mandolin to test it on at the moment*, so I've only tried it out on guitar. I've been using an Apollo Adam Schlenker pick in...

    Best strap I ever had was a Harrison. I'm still kicking myself for including it in a mando sale.

    If they're the same gauges as the old SB strings (11-14-25-41), I never did understand how that works for the A strings. Too light on strings that are already the weakest of the bunch, IMO....
