    Re: dumb question

    That's exactly what I found out, when trying it out, so I went backt to strapping around the head,

    But I hate the bootlace up there, so I've made some 1 mm Dyneema string loops, with a button on...

    Re: Old mandolins versus new a conclusion

    I just received my Hora II. It's quite impressive on it's own and then the price/performance factor is good as well. It does need new strings. The two deep pairs don't sound as they should

    I've done some sanding but I'll try: changing technique, a high armrest or a rest just behind the bridge

    Re: Old mandolins versus new a conclusion

    Yes I did but I had a lot of problems.
    When I first glued it, some wood was missing at the end of the break. I filled it with some filler but after tensioning the string, a thin crack developed. I...

    Re: Old mandolins versus new a conclusion

    I was hoping to find an older, cheaper full solid mandolin, that would be as good as a newer, more expensive full solid but I failed.
    So I have sold off 4 old mandolins and bought a Kentucky KM-805,...
  11. Re: Tip for using fingers on the high E string from 7th to 0

    yes I see the idea and have tried it but just now the 4-3-2-1 on E and 5-3 on A seems easier to me.
  12. Re: Tip for using fingers on the high E string from 7th to 0

    Yes that's it. I have decided for the 4321 fingers on E and started practice. Funny that I've never used finger 4 on a mandolin but then I've not practiced any chord playing.

    Sorry I don't have the sheet music.

  15. Re: Tip for using fingers on the high E string from 7th to 0

    You throw in a whole new combination and refer to a book I don't have :)):grin:

    Would you like to elaborate? Please!
  16. Re: Tip for using fingers on the high E string from 7th to 0

    You are in the start or verse. I'm describing an interlude towards the end.
  17. Re: Tip for using fingers on the high E string from 7th to 0

    It's the Tarantella starting from the 3. fret going up to 7,5,3,1,0 next 5,3 on A
  18. Tip for using fingers on the high E string from 7th to 0

    If playing fret 7,5,3,1,0 on the high E string, would you fret them finger 4,3,2,1 or 3,2,1,1 ?

    I use 3,2,1,1 today but have trouble moving finger 1 from 3 to 1 fast enough.

    Thank You for your...

    Re: Old mandolins versus new a conclusion

    I did try 5-6 mandolins, in a store, and they all sounded better than the old ones so MY conclusion is still the same ;-) ;-)

    So I'll be selling all my old ones and buy a Hora II for my car...

    Old mandolins versus new a conclusion

    A while ago I asked if older mandolins, being all in solid wood, weren't as good or better as newer ones..
    I have since had older 4-5 noname German and Italian mandolins and a Swedish Levin(owned by...

  23. Re: Older Barnes & Mullins Flatback - missing tuner key

    The 2 halves idea can work. You don't have the broken button? I had a bone button shatter but I succeeded in gluing them all back together, with superglue, and it's almost invisible.

  25. Re: Older Barnes & Mullins Flatback - missing tuner key

    The ring looks like soft aluminium. If you clear all the rust below it and find a tube with the right diameter, you might hammer it down. But it's only for looks, you should retain it. If you...
