    Re: I Need a Favor

    I'm very unsure if this is within the cafe rules but you could start a Go-Fund-Me style page and ask for even small donations. I bet it wouldn't take much to get a few Rogues and Rovers. I know I'd...

    Re: Happy Thanksgiving

    Wishing you all a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving!

    Best wishes, Zach & the girls

    P.S. I let them choose which mandolin to hold for the picture. Even kids know what's what! I got left with...

    Until it falls off hitting your precious mando from the inside and then scratches the top all up. I wouldn't recommend.
  5. Re: Should I put a Mandolin Cafe Sticker on my Vintage Lifton Cas

    Meh, it's just a case. I would and have stickers on all my cases, none are vintage however, although that wouldn't change my opinion unless the case was tweed, leather or another material that didn't...
  6. Re: Mandolin purchase advice for a new player

    Interesting side note... not to deviate from the original posting too much.

    I've never played one of the brands mentioned above (Collings, Northfield, Webber. Add in Pava and Flatiron) and didn't...
  7. Re: Mandolin purchase advice for a new player

    I'm glad you know what you *want* though. Ha! I wish I would have edited this earlier.

    However, knowing what you want is important. If your interested in only F shaped mandolins I'd definitely go...
  8. Re: Mandolin purchase advice for a new player

    No, it's all decorative.

    The lower point I guess can help "anchor" the instrument for some. Not for me.

    The scroll does make for a neat strap holder. But there are plenty of ways to attach a...
  9. Re: Mandolin purchase advice for a new player

    The "Z" in J. Bovier ďZĒ Mandolin I believe is for Zebra wood for the back and sides, which I imagine has a different tonal quality all together. Its something to consider.
  10. Re: Mandolin purchase advice for a new player

    Those prices are only as good as the setup of each individual instrument. A mandolin that doesn't play well (fret buzz, poor intonation, etc.) probably wont be picked up very much and could end up...

    Re: Pick Question

    I do the same. I also use different shapes for different tunes/songs. An example would be; I like to keep a rounded pick near by for tremolo playing.

    I guess I think if picks like how an electric...

    Re: In search of a mandolin...

    Couldn't agree more. You could probably get a flight, car, hotel and mandolin of your dreams for 10 grand. Just please wear your mask and try to physical distance. Alright, I'll get off my soapbox...

    Re: Pick Question

    I guess we should do some experimentation with a decibel meter and some kind of robot arm to play with the exact angle and force. Then we could try all different thicknesses, shapes and materials.

    Re: Tuning up

    A good friend of mine has an octave mandolin, tuned in unison, that he Capos at Mandola tuning for solo stuff. He says the lower tension is more comfortable. He's a bass player.

    Re: Tuning up

    Yes, or get a Mandola. It has the same tuning (CGDA) as the Soprano only an octave lower. The longer scale makes it easier to Capo to wherever your singer sings.
