  1. Re: Have you EXP74 users switched to XTís?

  3. Re: Recommendations for a quality but affordable mandolin

    I'm a little biased, but find yourself an american made (quartz or better) breedlove (discontinued). They are an incredible value at the price point people are looking for these days.

    Re: D'Addario picks?

    That's a nice service for you to do for others, and it's generous, whether you view it as a lot of work or not. I disagree on what the value added is worth, but everyone is in a different position....

    Re: D'Addario picks?

    Yes on the bow comment, but agree to disagree on the rest. Whether or not the materials cost $5 or so per pick, the little industry of boutique pick makers is just an example of the "invisible hand"...

    foldedpath-

    sounds like you made a great call on the mando you do have! Would love to hear a redwood topped mando at some point.

    LastMohican,

    What are you getting sound wise from the F5S that is over and above the sound of the FF? Could you compare them for me?

    Describe your MAS progression

    OK so my eyes have been opened how big a difference a good mandolin makes in terms of the enjoyment of this hobby.

    A couple years back I played an entry Eastman (315- which I realize has a good...

    Re: Are People Buying Less Mandolins Now?

    Regarding whether fewer mandos are being purchased right now it would be interesting to know... I can say that the time at home as made me antsy, which has resulted in a lot of accessories purchases.
  13. Re: anyone change their plain steel high strings faster than wrap

    thanks guys,

    to clarify... for whatever reason, the plain strings are discoloring/griming on me REALLY quickly- like within two weeks of solid playing and it doesn't wipe off easy. Anything you...

    Recently went through that pick whole journey and here's what i ended on and why-

    Shape- tri corner '346' shape - kinda what you referred to in your original post- is my favorite shape as it's the...
  15. anyone change their plain steel high strings faster than wrapped

    what the title said.

    Admittedly it never occurred to me to do for acoustic guitar, but I've been using coated strings there forever.

    For mando, I'm appreciating the settled in sound of the...

  17. Re: Set up question- intonation on the D string

    Thanks both!

    I did the capo thing, and the D string was still pulling sharp so i filed a tiny tiny bit off the fingerboard facing side. Definitely helped! I think I can get it square on if I go...

    Hey guys,

    I've played mandolin on and off but am now really into it since beginning playing a great sounding american breedlove kf.

    Richard- as a breedlove owner myself I realize that 'banjoey' was a really rough analog for what I meant. Think spectrum of instruments where banjo is on one end as midrangey and plucky, and...

    You're going to get way more depth (volume / sustain of lows) as well as clarity/note separation from the "pluck" attack. What really sold me on the thicker, well polished/machined picks in general...

    great point- I haven't included those classics yet. I'm so biased in the direction of a pick with a point that I haven't gone out of my way to include one in a buy. That being said, I'm interested...
