  1. Re: Keeping an A Mandolin in place with rug underlayment

    I also have this folding footrest thingy, which because of the shape,angle, and black rubber on top, my husband calls "your gas pedal" * :))
    It's adjustable, and I find it helpful.

    *It really...
  2. Re: Keeping an A Mandolin in place with rug underlayment

    Never thought of a chamois cloth, I will look in the garage and see if there are any unused ones:).
    I did consider one of those rubber mats that goes in a sink. I've got a strap already, I guess he...
  3. Keeping an A Mandolin in place with rug underlayment

    So, I've been working on Mike Marshall's ArtistWorks course lately. Mike is playing an F style mando, but my Stradolin's an A. Since I have no points to do the job, Mike wants me to get some carpet...

    Re: Cullng the herd

    It's even harder when you're in your sixties and are pretty much a newbie. In love with your mandolin(s), you think about the wasted time of not having instruments and want to try them all.
  6. Re: Looking for a US luthier that does bowlback restoration

    Another +1 for Jake. He has setup and/or repaired 4 instruments for me.
    It's always fun to visit his shop in Vermont. Great guy.
  7. Re: Source for Gibson banjolele 30's transfer?

    It would be easy to trace the logo from that photo in a vector graphics program; then if you know someone with a cricut machine you could make one.
    I'd offer to do it for you, but I don't have a...

    Re: Removing the bridge cover on a Martin

    I'd like to see a video if you have a chance. You're basically bracing your hands against the bottom corner of the mandolin where the top meets the side? This seems nerve wracking to me because of...

    What if it's really on there tight and you can't get it to move with your thumbs?

    Re: Finish impact on resonance?

    When I got my Big Muddy mandola, I emailed Mike Dulak about how to take care of it, as the finish is so different from my other mandolins. He said, "yeah I don't like to inhibit the wood with excess...

    Re: New music

    This makes me wish I understood Spanish so that I could know the story in the song. Nice music and very intriguing video production.

    Re: Classifieds - Best Payment Options

    If you negotiate the terms, be sure to emphasize you are serious about the mandolin and really want it. I've paid the paypal fee for things I've bought before. Nothing that big, though.

    Re: Classifieds - Best Payment Options

    I personally wouldn't do that (Venmo or F&F).

    Let's see what some more experienced folks say, but it leaves you with no protection, unless (maybe) you fund the payment with a credit card. I'd...

    Re: Music Store Etiquette

    My opinion (FWIW) is Do it - you have little or nothing to lose! *

    I commented on this on your thread on the newbie page.

    Re: Do You Have Too Many Instruments?

    No judgement intended. Everyone's different and it's all good. It's just curious. All his walls were covered. I wonder if he had favorites, and if there were a bunch that never got played.

    Re: Do You Have Too Many Instruments?

    Just watched the video from the OP. That's pretty weird. He had so many, yet his skill level was not great. You have to wonder about the psychology of that.
