Date: 28 Feb 05 - 12:43 PM

Let's see, I have a bodhran, 2 soprano recorders- 1 plastic, 1 wood, 1 plastic alto recorder, 3 tin whistles, a Dusty Strings Allegro 26 string harp, 2 ocarinas, castinettes, a jaws harp, a nose flute, a shaker egg, cow bone bones, a native american wooden flute (made by a friend-doesn't play very well-but she tried), another noisemaker type thingie (don't remember what it's called), spoons, and my husband has a fiddle.

The only thing I can play well is the bones! And I still need more practice with them!

Currently I have:

Mid 80's Lowden 12 String - Ovenkol and Cedar
1999 Weber Bridger mandolin
Davy Stuart Octave Mandolin
2003 Weber Fern mandolin
2004 Collings OM2HG
One nameless mountain dulcimer
One 5 string banjo { Possibly a Vega star }
And a few odd things like a Kalimba, harmonicas, shakers, kazoos ect.
A Crate acoustic amp.

If anyone should want to give a good home to the Lowden, Bridger or Davy Stuart octave mandolin I'd be willing to sell them. I have mandolin acquisition syndrome that needs feeding.

I'm afraid to count but here goes:

the real instruments:
2 Guitars (Alvarez starter, Martin 000-15s)
3 Appalacian dulcimers (no-name, McSpadden, Folkroots baritone)
2 Mandolins (bowl-back, 1919 Gibson A)
3 Flutes (Gemeindhart student, Tipple PVC, Sweetheart rosewood)
6 Recorders (Sopranino, 2 Sopranos, 3 Altos - one nice, nice Tenor)
6 Whistles (4 irish type, one bamboo and 1 slide - that should go in the silly category))
1 Yamaha Digital Piano
1 Clavichord (built by my husband's dad nearly 40 yrs ago)
25 Harmonicas (including a chromatic set of Golden Melodies)

and the silly stuff:

3 Ocarinas
4 Jew's Harps
1 Bodhran
1 Washboard w. thimbles
1 Tambourine
1 Hammered dulcimer, hand made w. no bass strings
1 Bugle (one is enough!)
3 Kazoos
3 Shakey eggs (they seem to multiply)
1 pr Wooden Catspaw spoons
1 deer claw rattle

and the comment about too many books also holds true -- except that we do have a large bookcase in the kitchen, for cookbooks of course.

And you are likely to be in terrible trouble for putting bodhrans under the silly things heading! Not least from me! I don't think ocarinas are silly either.

Err...now let me think!:

Guitars: 6 (Lakewood Custom M-18, Regal RC-1, "no-name" jazz archtop, Paul Belgrado custom solid electric, old Antoria classical, 1890s French parlour guitar used exclusively for slide
Mandolin: 1 (Gideon Weigert, Nottingham, UK)
Octave mandolin (or mandola, depending which side of the pond): 1 (Terry Docherty, Newcastle, UK)
Piano: 1 (Upright Zimmerman, Germany)
Mountain dulcimer: 1 (French, handmade...can't remember the maker offhand)
Fiddle: 1 (old, probably German)
Bass: 1 (electric, Cort)
Latin percussion set (congas, bongos and multifarious assorted percussion pieces): 1 (mostly Meinl plus Oxfam Fair Trade)
Djembe: 1 (Ivory Coast)
Wooden D flute: 1 (Belgian, Riccardo Von Vittorelli)
D whistle: 1 (Chieftain)
Balalaika 1: (bought in Moscow, late 60s)
Harmonicas: several (all Hohner)
Mouth-blown "Thai organ" (no laughing please): 1

Amps: 4 (Trace acoustic, Laney acoustic, Behringer bass, Torque 30W practice amp))

Plus of course all the cases and containers of the above:

There may once have been (in fact, definitely were) far more but marital continuity and house repairs dictated reluctant disposal thereof!

Just picked up a used (had been rented) Godin Freeway 5 electric 5 string bass. Two pickups, flame maple top, and only required a minor change in the set-up. It came with roundwound strings which I will replace with flatwounds as soon as possible.

It's my second Godin. Anyone else like these things?

Wesley S...My first one was the acoustibass fretless 4 string but stage accidents pushed me to deal it while it still had any value. I prefer to play electric but like the stand-up sound. Since then the five string has taken over my playing and I have yet to find a good fretless for less than a mint, though I could yank the frets on this new one...

How about one with octave strings?

Many years ago in the dark distant past when I played bass - a Les Paul - I was tempted to buy a friends Travis Bean fretless. I'm glad I backed away from it. It takes a serious musician to play fretless.

I told el_punkoid_nouveau that he wasn't to buy any more mandolins until he had a mandocello, so he cheated, and at the National he bought a probably 1920s banjolin for £20. We are now going to have to bring in the "One in one out" rule for instruments so that there is actually room to move in the house. Guess we should do the same for books really....

is that "have" in the carnal sense?

like most people who've been playing since the dawn of time, I have too many musical instruments. The problem is you get sod all for them when you trade them in. and if you get rid of one, you invariably find a use for it the week after you've sold it for half its value.

if we get invaded by aliens who can be placated by gifts of musical instruments - all my acqisitions will prove to have been wise investments - otherwise I look at all this stuff and I think - what an idiot!

love the lists by MBSLynne and Azizi ...

I like electric blues so I play Gibson guitars (go figure) ... but I bought the Gibsons because they were representative of models that were unusual (sort of) for Gibson:

1. Gibson Firebird (only neck-thru-body that Gibson makes)
2. Gibson Les Paul DC plus (only 24 fret neck Gibson makes)
3. Gibson SG Classic (for the P-90 pickups)
4. Rickenbacker 650 Dakota (for the "Rick" sound and neck-thru-body tone)
5. Epiphone GS-400 Custom (for 'experimental' purposes i.e. changing out pickups; upgrading tuners; etc...bought it mostly for the neck and body)
6. Epiphone Wildkat (for hollow-body rockabilly and the Bigsby tremolo)
7. Washburn 7-string (forget the model - GS7 or something ...for 7-string explorations...pretty decent guitar for el cheapo price)
8. Guild D-4 (for acoustic playing)
9. Cheap Hondo classical guitar (for nylon)
10. Kramer acoustic/electric (for mobility ...practice sessions on the go)

Kendall,
Yeah, I thought about that too. In fact, I almost posted: "OK, now. Please post your address and your work schedule." But then I realized that it probably wasn't as funny as I first thought.

Actually, though, no one on the Net would know who we really are or where we lived, would they? Unless they had already established some form of real contact. And then we would know who the thief was. Besides, we are spread all over the world. Likely not near a potential thief who probably sent us another "Nigerian Bank" email just minutes ago.

Anyway,

4 6-strings, various affordable models (NOT Loudon or Martin)
2 12-strings,
2 autoharps,
5 or 6 recorders,
one train whistle,
one harmonica,
and one small amp, suitable for small-ish venues.
Oh, and spoons. Got to have spoons to stir my coffee and eat my ice cream. Couldn't play them if my life depended on it.

And no one knows who I am or where I live. ;-)

The aforementioned Godin 5 string bass became a fretless a few months ago when I pulled the frets and filled the slots with ebony veneer. I haven't gotten around to removing the position dots yet.

Also added a Godin LG electric guitar with humbuckers to the collection because I sold a Strat and an Ernie Ball recently and the Tele was getting lonely.

The House acoustic has two side ports and less bracing than it was born with and it sounds bigger now.

Looking at a Gibson A9 mandolin lately...can't...stop...myself...

Peace, Mooh.

Wesley S,

Acquisition syndrome withdrawal has kept me on the fringes of society for years. There's no cure, no therapy, no program, no deprogram, no hope...only prayer.

He's got a mandolin and he knows how to use it!

Peace, Mooh.

Lots of recorders (Hopf Renaissance types, Kung tenor and greatbass, a Mollenhauer Kynseker G alto, an unnamed German-fingering A soprano, a Mollenhauer Dream soprano, a Scott wooden F alto, Susato G sopranino and G alto plastics, a Lee Collins Zen-On F alto, a Yamaha green plastic soprano, an unnamed purple glittery plastic soprano in C sharp, lots of plastic altos and sopranos which I intend to donate to a children's music initiative in Palestine shortly, along with an assortment of whistles I never use)

A Turkish G clarinet and an old Czech clarinet in C sharp

An alto flute, a wooden flute and a Boehm C flute

An electronic pipe chanter with various computer speakers to play it through

Three Italian-type ocarinas

An ud, two cumbuses, a cobza, a Puerto Rican cuatro and a Black Sea fiddle

A small old six-bar diatonic autoharp designed for tunes in G, rearranged to play in two sharps for Scottish music

A one-octave chromatic set of chime bars designed for playing in E flat

A stylophone

Several gongs, two of them enormous, and a bunch of small bells

A def, a darbuka, a homemade conga-like drum and a bunch of African cowhide drums

A battered old chromatic button accordion I'm just starting on

Several 8-foot-register organ pipes I am intending to make into something someday

Several children's percussion instruments

About a dozen washboards - one I use every week, the others are intended to be given away in pursuit of my aim to convert the world to the Lost Art of Ancient Scottish Washboard Playing

Several rucksacks used to cart combinations of the above round to folk sessions by public transport

This all seems surprisingly normal after seeing other people's lists.
