    Re: Sold my Collings and got a Pava

    I favor a warm sound as well and my Silverangel deffo delivers that. However I do play with a BC CT55 which delivers a slightly brighter sound than the previous TAD 60 that I used to use. All of that...

    Re: Reducing chrome Grover F tuner shine.

    My immediate thought if you don't want to change the color, but maybe just reduce the shine would be to just buff it with some coarser steel wool... if you're just trying to knock back the sheen and...
