  6. Re: All of My 2020 Festivals Have Been Cancelled

    On the far side of this there will be enormous demand. People will be out enjoying the same activities as a year ago. But the shops and venues will be different, or at least different owners.

  7. Re: Anyone know of any nickel-free mando strings?

    I believe the plain D'Addario strings are steel. They sell separate packs of pure nickel strings. You can certainly check their website.

    Re: New Vessel Loar A5 tribute

    Well, as stated by Gary in post 24, he builds them to sell them, because folks order them, not ‘collective improved understanding.’ He’s not restoring anything. Clearly there’s a commercial benefit...
