    Re: Florian Klaus Rumpf Kickstarter

    Re: China mandolin supply

    OK, you guys asked for it...

    I actually think this whole video great fun, but I'm linking directly to the part most (im)pertinent to the meanderings of this thread: :grin:

    Re: Florian Klaus Rumpf Kickstarter

    Having listened to some samples of the music, I agree with Mr. Cafe that this would be a nice project to hear completed. I'm on board, hoping some more of you will agree so my pledge doesn't go to...

    Re: Barbara

    Well I for one had not heard this tune or the album, so I am glad you posted! What great music. Just sampled the rest of the LP & bought it. Thanks!

    You're right about the John Carlini guitar as...

    Re: Frank Wakefield

    You can hear Frank, literally "alongside" several of those artists, on a great version of Dusty Miller, and he also does a couple of his own tunes on this album, which is great fun:

    Re: dry & dusty/ old time mandolin & fiddle

    Very nice! This came up at a fiddle jam a few weeks back and I wasn't familiar with it. Perhaps with these fine examples you folks have provided, I can at least have a clue the next time it comes...

    Good luck Sue! I hope it's got a great fret job and neck on it and sounds fantastic.

    Re: My MAS is cured.

    It might be easier for some of us to relate to if you said your MAS is in remission. Some are just not destined for a cure. :grin:

  14. Re: Has anyone ordered one of the Synergy Carbon Fiber mandolins?

    Did you by chance ask them for (or about) a strap button on the neck heel? I didn't see that covered at their site.

    Certainly looks like a nice axe - I hope it sounds as great as it looks. Very...

    Re: Wegen vs. Primetone vs. Clown Barf

    Fun stuff Kevin! I'm not really convinced that I can hear much difference between the 3 picks in the context of this video and and my PC audio system, but I do think that your playing with the Clown...

    Re: mildew in case

    Some of the other advice here probably makes more sense, but I had fairly good luck with getting a mildew smell (not actual mold) out an old A-style case by dousing it periodically with Ozium and...

    I can't comment on expectations for the sound, but will eagerly await the photos and some sound clips!

    Re: Eastman 515 vs J Bovier F5t

    I can also speak favorably for the Eastman 515. I've played a couple of them at a local store that sounded and played really well. There was a 515V they had a couple of years ago that was so great I...

  21. Re: Strap for a Strad-ol-Lin? There's no strap button.

    Ugh :( Strap around the headstock? - Drives me nuts whether it's a mando or a guitar. Just doesn't feel right.
    Ugh :( Strap under the fretboard extension? - So esthetically displeasing it makes...

    While there are limitations to PC sound systems, Kirk makes a good point about doing a video call.

    I am a huge fan of Levi's uke straps for A-styles, because they're small, lightweight and easy to stash in the case without removing them. I got convinced that I had to have a heavier, wider,...
