    Re: OM case stinks

    Maybe you just need more time. Airing it out just one or two days won’t do it. You may need to ait it out for months. But if you can smell it, that means the chemical in question is volatile, and...
  2. Re: Where can a classical/Italian player find a non-bowlback mand

    I’m surprise no one mentioned Avi Avital’s Kerman mandolin. I think it’s a flat back. Unfortunately I don’t think you can get a new Kerman anymore.
  3. Re: My experience with the WILLHI WH1436H Air Humidity Controller

    I am happy this solution worked out for you. Any attempt I ever made at humidifying a room in my house has failed. My theory is that in the winter the central heating re-circulates the air in the...

    Re: Loar 500, 600, 700s peoples!

    Honestly, I don’t know, but I think maybe your lack of response might be because most of us wouldn't really stress that much over a 5/32” difference in scale length. For me it certainly wouldn’t even...

    Re: Any lazy way to off a bunch of instruments?

    I don’t know the situation on your side of the country, but over here the local music store is practically begging people to sell, trade, or consign their used stuff just so that they have stock to...

    Re: Frustrated with new Loar 310F

    I hate to be a cloud of doom but I wonder how much good it will do to exchange it. Maybe they’re all like that.
  8. Re: Thinking of getting a Northfield Big Mon and I have questions

    Sitka vs Adirondack is a debate that has been hashed over many times, with no real resolution. There are so many variables when it comes to individual tops that is is close to impossible to make...

    Re: Cases and covers

    Maxr that is truly a million dollar idea! People spend huge amounts of money on instruments that have been heavily “relic-ed”, so why not a heavily relic-ed case as well to go with it? Scratches,...

    Re: Cases and covers

    Many thanks to those who replied and recognized that I had my tongue firmly in cheek. :)

    Hank’s was my favorite. Of COURSE the case cover should be protected by a hard case!

    It kind of makes...

    Cases and covers

    There have been a few posts about cases lately, and they have got me to thinking. I have a million dollar idea, but no capital, so if someone wants to take this and run with it, you have my...

    Re: Hands on with a Zeta acoustic mandolin

    Just to set the record straight, it wasn’t me who first suggested throwing a case down a staircase. It was the OP in post #1.

    Re: Hands on with a Zeta acoustic mandolin

    I am not impressed by the case. It may be very protective but to my eyes it does not look like a “hard case”. More like a glorified gig bag. In their specs they call it a soft/hard case. Or is it a...

    Re: Hands on with a Zeta acoustic mandolin

    You don’t show a picture of the screw on plastic plate on the back of the neck joint. I’m curious about this, even Zeta doesn’t really explain it. They say it’s a bolt on neck. Is the cover to access...

    Re: Screw hole in veneer to big

    Yes Jim, that is a great solution. But if it’s a plastic cover I would worry about it warping without the bottom screw to hold it. If I went for a solution like that, and if it were plastic, I would...

    Re: Screw hole in veneer to big

    Maybe you could get a new truss rod cover, slightly longer so that the screw hole ends up above solid wood? You would have to drill a new hole, very carefully because of the truss rod nut being...

    Re: New Mandolin Style

    I am sorry to say that I think the problem is in your basic design. I’m thinking that there has to be some kind of wood blocks to support those scrolls, am I right? Those could be acting to dampen...

    Re: Help please!!!! Messed up pretty bad

    I’ll bet that’s the way all the Mitchells are built. This is no one off. Cheap, easy, and stable, at least until something goes wrong.

    I think offering him some cash to use for an upgrade is a great idea. That Mitchell is not a terribly good mandolin. That neck joint is a case in point. Your friend would be substantially better off...

    Re: Help please!!!! Messed up pretty bad

    From the looks of the glue residue it doesn’t look like a type that would respond to steam. To my eyes it resembles construction adhesive. Between the massive amounts of glue and the two huge screws,...

    Re: Setting intonation on octave mandolin

    I think a shorter scale magnifies intonation problems. Do you play much above the 7th fret? Problems get more noticeable the higher you go. Is the saddle inset with a tilt, or straight? And is your...
