Hey Jim, the picture of your current instruments didn't come through, can you resend? Thanks, and welcome! Edward
I just noticed this group and figured that I'd better join. I like all kinds of mandolin music and have been involved in bluegrass, Irish trad and am presently in the Maple Leaf Champions Jug Band. We do a lot of blues and rags and old standards like Chatanooga Choo Choo or Somebody Stole My Gal.
Here's my current arsenal:
Hi! Just joined again to post a 1936 Gibson Mandolin A00 that I saw on my local Craigslist - can't be many of them around:
Here's a pic:
Just joined to post this from my local Craigslist - a 2002 Gibson F-9 Mandolin!
$1700 firm...have no idea if that is a good price, but here's a pic to look at, anyway:
Bone leather with rawhide insert. The most comfortable strap I've ever owned!! I highly recommend it! http://gaylewinde.com/home.html
Why doesn't Dunlop make a capo of this type for mandolin? This is what I use for guitar and I find it better than the trigger style capo I also have.
About capos for mandolin... I shortened a Dunlop Advanced guitar capo, but I had to make a new strap.
Being a Canadian I am a big fan of the group Blue Rodeo. Not many pop/rock bands feature mandolin on a regular basis in their recordings but this group seems to do so. Wish there was more tab online for their work. I did find the tab for their song "Hasn't Hit Me Yet" Tab click here.
Not sure what those outside of Canada know of this band but check out this link to a video of theirs online. Blue Rodeo - Hasn't Hit Me Yet
Another of my personal favorites by the band is Side of the Road. Not sure I hear the mandolin in this one though and the video quality is pretty poor. This posting of just the audio is much better. Audio Version
The pick up is from jjb electronics. At $20 .. I love it. It is happier with a preamp, but I usually run it straight into my amp. I have another that I occasionally use on my Grammers. For $20 .. I recommend it! http://www.jjb-electronics.com/
What type of pickup do you have on the Loar? And how do you like it! I have a Dean Markley stick on that looks like yours only the disk is maple on mine. It works well but is designed to be used on a guitar so it's a little big! Thanks, Edward
