Not any more it doesn't.
A fresh set of plugs, points, and distributor cap along with a timing adjustment should set her right again.
I just have to see a broken one. Do you have a photo? I'm more keen to know how they break, and not as easily as what, I wonder.
Sounds 'better' how? If there were any truth to this, we'd all be getting used to playing on a neck like Radim uses!
Thanks for your support, Chris. If not for you, I wouldn't have known there was another flavor!
After much back-to-back testing the TPR80 -vs- TPR60 I returned the 80 last week.
The missing overtones and greater pick noise were strong cons against a possible volume increase and (I think...
I hadn't posted anything before now because I'm still not sure about it. The morning of the day it arrived I'd skewered my pick thumb with a screwdriver (don't ask) and, thumbwhat luckily for me - no...
Snark SN-2 for the instruments that don't have a Planet Waves mini on the headstock. I find the others too unsightly and heavy to leave attached.
Does this look rather odd to anyone else? 2007 Discontinued Flatiron
There you have it. The "I don't see what all the fuss is about" comment came from hearing the pick played on (what we are to assume are) the instruments listed:
Fender FM-52E (2003)
All picks are equal..but some are more equal than others.
All ears are not created equal..
Welcome to the 'cafe, Dragonfly Dreamer! A whole world of things mandolin awaits you here. Happy picking..:mandosmiley:
Well put, there, Chris.
As a wise man once said to me, "You're not rich enough to buy cheap".
I ordered a custom TPR80 on their website at just before 9:00AM today. Just now (10:13AM) got a status updated notice as 'shipped'.
Now that's what I call good and fast. You can't beat that.
Allen (Matthew's son) just wrote to me saying that under no circumstances will they make a TPR thicker than TPR60. Just kidding - they will make it for me: by ordering TAD80 and requesting a TPR...
That damned 80 is calling me. No TPR version, though?
My old threads are holding up just fine. No odor so long as I wash them periodically before wearing again.
As it's called '100' it must have more material in it, not less. You should really write to Matthew with your thoughts on costs, etc.
I had it all explained and broken down in detail from the...
Adam, I think there is now enough evidence to show that they're not everyone's cup of tea. Horses for courses..
The break point in the slots at the nut and saddle must be correct.
Thanks, Tom. I knew this, and to that end, had already fine tuned (filed) the nut slots with a feeler gauge.
In that tickle is Rice playing with Grisman, Bush, Thile, and Marshall on Ovation mandolins..?
I had an Eko Ranger 12 in 1972! I remember the zero fret and the bolt-on neck. Came in handy when it got broken at the peg head.
On one of my mandos I can get everything set up electronically and in tune, but for the A course, which frets sharp up to the sixth fret.
The nut slots couldn't be cut any lower, so I'm starting to...
