    Re: DR Mandolin String Issues

    I use them for my carved top mandolins and recently have had one D string that went wonky after a bit of use.
    The symptoms were similar to a poorly cut nut or saddle slot, so I re-dressed what...

    Re: Buying a Gibson Loar

    It's like the question you ask your broker as to when to buy a certain stock. You usually get the answer "yesterday, so today is not too late". If you can't handle the ride, don't jump on. I've...

    Re: Buying a Gibson Loar

    If I had the spare change laying around I'd buy one in a heartbeat. But I'd buy it to play the heck out of it with no thought as to the investment potential. I'd also play a bunch of them and...

    A rare grouping. The two on the right are being prepped for finish and the A is my first oval hole. Big sound!

    Man, sblock, you sure are a grouch.

    Don't read it if it bothers you.

    Otherwise, as the old ones say, "If you don't have something nice to say don't say nothing at all."

    Re: Dudes Gils and the "Loar tone"

    There are many topics that have been discussed "ad infinitum ad nauseum" here. What pick is the best? Is a Blue Chip really worth 35 dollars? What's the difference between F holes and oval holes? Do...

    Re: Dudes Gils and the "Loar tone"

    If someone starts a thread and you think it's a dumb topic or whatever, is being rude about it a forum requirement?

    Or can you just skip over it and read another thread instead?

    Re: Zoom A3 with Schertler

    Mike, yes, you can change the level of the boost, and there's also a tone control on the boost so you can dial in more or less bite to it.

    This thing also seems well-built, good solid feel and all...

    In order, my answer would be McCoury, O'Brien, Grisman, and Thile. Great players are better than the rest of us at a lot of things, including discovering great instruments and their builders, and the...

    Very good recording. The tunes, arrangements, playing, pace of the recording - all is terrific. Aaron has a very cool style, sort of old and new, like Wayne Benson a bit. But, his own thing.
