    Re: Thomastik-Infeld Strings

    Dan - my signature below lists the TI's I have on three different style mandolins. I think TI's are great - but definitely, for me, not on a bowl back.

    Re: Take Your Pick

    I was able to set up an account after several attempts. The website has some pretty awkward flaws and inconsistent behaviors. On the other hand, once you get an order submitted, they are very fast at...
  3. Re: Article: A Conversation with Caterina Lichtenberg on the Rele

    Just a wee bit of a topic stray - just wanted to say that Caterina is an incredibly wonderful, skillful teacher. She is a kind and generous person who very capably hones in on the student's...

    Re: Take Your Pick

    Hi Eugene -
    It has been most interesting so far. The Gali pick, when used with the Dogal strings on my bowl back, results in a substantial, wonderful change in tone. Overall the bowl back becomes...
  9. Re: Lyon & Healy Model A rebuild or for parts

    Jim - whoa! That would make you think twice - thanks for pointing that out! (Is this one of those "dah" moments? LOL)
  10. Re: Lyon & Healy Model A rebuild or for parts

    Louise - feeling ignorant here. Are you saying that a bidder will pay an additional amount beyond his bid or that the premium is simply a portion of a bid that goes to an auction house? Thank you!!
  11. Re: Lyon & Healy Model A rebuild or for parts

    What is a "buyer's premium" please? Thank you.

    Re: sanding/scratching picks for better grip

    For myself, I have come to believe "slippery" picks is an issue solved by improving picking and pick/hold technique. As a rank neophyte my experience is that all playing woes will solve themselves by...
  13. Re: Lyon & Healy Model A rebuild or for parts

    Yes, for the right person this could be a real find!!!! I am almost tempted to put a bid in myself and have it delivered directly to a luthier LOL!!!
  14. Re: Lyon & Healy Model A rebuild or for parts

    Martin - no I did not look at it. The description is what was stated on the link. Tailpieces and pick guards for Model A's are almost impossible to find and are priced quite high. This auction, at a...

    I agree - I've bought several straps from Alan. He is very accommodating to specific dimension requirements and his straps are beautiful.

    Re: Take Your Pick

    Oh my gosh! The Gali "heavy" picks arrived today. The size and shape is perfect, but wow the thin celluloid is WAY foreign to a guy who is using EML and BC 1.5mm picks!!! I need to give these a good...

    Eugene, you have probably said, but please remind me - now that you have the Gali's in your collection as well, what is your current most satisfying pick of choice?

    Re: Take Your Pick

    Jim - yes, I think it is fun stuff - and so completely subjective and personal! For instance: I did not like the D'addario casein pick at all, yet am enamored with EML. And yet the other pick I keep...

    Re: Take Your Pick

    "Do you know if Eric at EML can produce casein plectra at a little less than 1.0 mm thick?" That is a good question. I don't normally like picks less than 1.5mm, so I have never asked. I'll ask him...

    Just to throw something perhaps of interest into the mix: I am in touch with Eric of EML picks. These days I never seem to want to use any pick other than my casein Classic Pointed 1.5mm EML pick...

    Re: Take Your Pick

    Louise, I ordered some Gali's and the shipping was exorbitant (about 15 euros). They have not arrived yet. I decided it was worth it to experience a pick that Ralf considered excellent. To me it is...
