    Double Standard

    I usually check this forum quite regularly, about 5 days a week, and I've noticed a double-standard in some of the responses.

    It's time to play devil's advocate.

    In a recent thread, someone...

    Re: Buy without trying

    I misspoke (or miswrote, if that's a word) when I called Mr. Blevins "Ray." I must have been having a senior moment. (Those seem to be coming more often.) His name is Eddie Blevins and I apologize...

    If you hang out here for a little while, you'll learn that there many trusted dealers and luthiers. Over the years, I purchased 2 Breedloves from The Mandolin Store and a Gibson from Mandomutt, all...

    Re: Useing lacewood

    I had some lacewood a couple of years ago. It never occurred to me to make any kind of musical instrument. Instead, I turned it and made backscratchers for friends and family. :)

    Re: Breedlove American 00

    I have two American-made Breedloves. They both have impeccable workmanship and playability. When I got my Gibson F-5L, I never gave any consideration to giving up either Breedlove. They're that...

    Re: Help with case color

    Rather than color, I would be more concerned with things like sturdiness, storage, weight, etc. Having said that, I believe that if I had a purple case, I'd have to turn in my man card.

    Re: Help with case color

    Are you really going to be storing it in the sun and heat? Unless you are, pick your favorite color and don't worry about it.

    Re: Describe your MAS progression

    Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I believe I have my MAS in remission. Actually, I don't call it a pandemic anymore. I refer to it as “everything going on” because it has had such a wide-reaching...

    Re: sanding/scratching picks for better grip

    Monster Grips. If applied to a clean surface, they last a long time. If they appear to lose their tackiness, wash 'em in soap and water and they're like new again. The Monster Grip will last as...

    Mapes has stainless steel strings. I realize that some stainless has nickel, it's usually less than 1%. They might be able to tell you about the composition.

    Get Rob Meldrum's publication and follow the instructions. If it still sounds bad, come back with the same question. Do a search on this site for information on how to download it free.

    Re: A-style and F-style.

    While I prefer the F-style, the A is still very contemporary. It seems as if you're basing your instrument on how it looks rather than how it sounds, not that that's necessarily bad but certainly...
