Let's Play Jeopardy! Here's your host, Alex Trebek

Contestant #3: "I'll take Internet Forums for $200, Alex."

Alex Trebek: "ToneRite, Blue Chip Picks and Gibson's 120th Anniversary F5 mandolin."

Contestant #3: "Name three products garnering publicity and benefiting beyond their wildest dreams on the Mandolin Cafe forum."

Alex Trebek: "That's correct! Please continue"

I've been wanting to say this for a long time. It's clear strong negative opinions

New Packaging/SKU for D'Addario J-74 Mandolin Strings

We've shown the image below to several people who said they'd love

Summer NAMM

by Scott Tichenor on Jul-18-2014 at 1:00pm
As a rule I don't like to eat my own words, so excuse me while I grab fork and spoon. The Nashville NAMM Show which I'd boasted on the home page was quite the networking opportunity for mandolinists is not what it used to be. Still, there are valuable contacts made, experiences you're glad you were a part of and information that might not have been discovered otherwise. Allow me to share some of those.

I was invited down a day before the show by Tim Nelson of Eastman. Tim's lengthy
