  1. Re: New player: a lot of pain in the knuckle of my left hand

    As suggested by pops1, you could be battling a bad, or non-optimal setup, where the nut slots are high and you have to press much harder than necessary at those first few frets. Search for Bob...
  2. Re: Medium/light and medium/heavy strings what’s the difference?

    Short answer (IMO) is stick with medium unless you have really got to the point where you are sounding clearly on all strings, and feel like there's some imbalance that might be attributable to...
  3. Re: 1920 Gibson A $500 today only needs repair

    Haha. It's happened to me, too. I stared at that and did think, well, it's already dropped 50% once, if it went down another 50% I'd be interested, but I didn't think it would. Good for you, and I...
  4. Re: What Are Some Good Options in the $2-3k range?

    There's nothing there - looks like a "hole" between the Ellis A5 Special (191574) and [The] Loar LM-700 (191583). If you didn't get it, someone else did!

    Re: 1996 Gibson F9 worth saving?

    To my relatively inexperienced eye, that's a pretty bad break. (Only dealt with a couple on guitars a long time ago, and they were clean and simple.) Looking forward to reading some pro opinions on...
  6. Re: 1920 Gibson A $500 today only needs repair

    Even though hovering over the link looks like it's going direct to reverb, the link that gets generated when you click (or copy) that hyperlink goes through a redirect (to collect information). I'm...

    Re: What should I do with that mandolin?

    I went looking on the fr.rakuten.shopping.com site (only one I could get to without creating an account), and there's a close relative of OP's mandolin there (in a "kit" with picks, bag, etc.) for...
  8. Re: 1920 Gibson A $500 today only needs repair

    LOL. Can't argue with that!

    Just looked at the link, and "... that piece of gear is gone." Is there a gambler here?

    Re: What should I do with that mandolin?

    OP moved the bridge by setting the intonation at the 13th fret, is my guess (see my earlier post). Of course, it, along with string spacing at the bridge, might have moved or adjusted incorrectly at...
  10. Re: 1920 Gibson A $500 today only needs repair

    Well, it's been *through* the Great Depression. That counts for something, doesn't it? ;)

    The back looks cracked and while it might just be from whatever hit did that fracture, like it might have...

    Re: What should I do with that mandolin?

    The action is high, but even considering some distortion from the camera angle, when I "measure" the length from the nut to bridge (in pixels), and divide by two, what it looks like to me is that the...
  12. Re: Golden Gate "Clown Barf" Extra Stiff Pick

    I've been trying a couple of the clown-barf versions (large and rounded triangle), and they are not bad.

    The one large triangle developed a slight nick, or "chipped out" it seems, where a couple...

    Re: Franks' Mandolin Kitchen

    I (of course) like the NF, but I went back and listened to a couple waltzes done on the Pava, and found absolutely nothing lacking. I do [maybe] think the NF would get my vote on some of the jazzier...

  15. Re: What Are Some Good Options in the $2-3k range?

    I don't know about the Weber or its pricing, but there was a used NF F2S [oval hole] on the Classifieds here that was just there and gone, I'd say in a day. It was under $3k, so, unless it was pulled...
  16. Re: What Are Some Good Options in the $2-3k range?

    Aside from the higher end Eastman and Kentucky [new] models, and maybe some 'A' in that middle tier, you might be on the lookout for a used Northfield F5S. I got mine in the lower half of the $2K...

    Re: Nick's Front Porch Mandolin

    It works on my iPhone using the Chrome browser, because it lets you download the actual MP3 to your Files, and you can play it there. It doesn't work with Safari on my iPhone.

    Re: Midrange Cases; worth the expense?

    I appreciate the effort, but that seller has no feedback since 2016, and it says they are "away." It's only listed as "watch" and not actually for sale, so I'd probably take a pass on that one.

    Re: High e-string keeps snapping, help?

    You might try the method some use, where you pull the string semi-taut (between the nut and bridge), then wind it *up* around the post and at the last push the end through the hole in the post, vs....

    Re: Midrange Cases; worth the expense?

    Ah, I was looking for F-style cases. (Pardon my bias!) The one pictured at Elderly is pretty clearly shaped only for an A-shaped mando, and it looks like the same one in the small picture at Boyd's....

    The Superior mandolin case has been "unobtainium" for some time, AFAIK.

    Re: Midrange Cases; worth the expense?

    I can't comment on the merits, but ABS was pretty good until fiberglass came along. I would say ABS is usually a bit thinner because it's simply molded plastic, and consequently probably a bit...
  24. Re: Who Has a Northfield F5-S with Airloom case?

    Maybe you could post some pictures of the case and neck joint. (You'll want to take them to show to the vendor, in any case.)

    I only have the '19 model I got used, so don't know what differences...
  25. Re: Wrapping strings around tuners too many times restringing?

    The short answer is, I suspect, "it depends." :)

    As suggested, the coefficient of friction is one of the factors/coefficients in the equation, and like many physics problem, it has something with...
