    Re: The end of my playing days.

    F Cancer.

    I feel so bad for his wife & family knowing what they have gone through and will continue to go through. It's just the worst way to loose a loved one.
  2. Re: Hypothetical high dollar mando purchase question...

    If I had your kind of $$$ to blow on a mandolin I’d go with a Gibson DMM. After all, only a Gibson is good enough.

    Re: southern flavor - key?

    I learned it from the Bill Monroe “live from mountain stage” album. It’s Em except for one chord in the B section which goes D EMaj D B7. Also played that way on the live video with Monroe and...

    Re: The inferior mandolin

    Guitar player in my band has a MK mandolin. For years it had terrible action and old strings. He let me take it home and change the strings and adjust the bridge and truss rod. I was amazed at how...

  7. Re: mandolin comparison of three high class F 5 mandolins

    #3 sounds the best to me! Just a little darker and sweeter. #2 sounds a little buzzy. #1 and #2 are a little midrangey sounding.

    Re: Stereo mic question-Avantone ck40

    I have owned a CK-40 for several years. It has a nice sound, but one of the capsules seems to be louder than the other on my unit. Adjusting the level slightly resolves the issue. Tried contacting...

    Who are you to question the chord voicings of Bill Monroe!! You are not a bluegrass musician!

    Re: Phoenix mandolins closing shop?

    Oh no, this is so saddening. I love my Phoenix mandolins. My ORANGE select made this time last year may have been one of the last. Hugs to Jenny, she was an absolute pleasure to work with on the...
  12. Re: New favorite pick! Hawk SB over Bluechip CT55

    Yep. Love the Primetones. Just like the blue Chips but a little darker. You tried ‘em?
  13. Re: New favorite pick! Hawk SB over Bluechip CT55

    Hawks are pretty nice but nothing for me beats a Primetone. Not even a blue chip.

    Re: check out Billy Strings meeting his match

    Sierra and Molly are great, but Billy Strings is just a fantastic soloist. On another level.

    Re: Electric Bass

    The OP doesn’t give us a lot to go on, only that he seems to want to use the electric bass for bluegrass and that he already has an upright and a acoustic bass guitar. I’ll chime in and say that...

    Re: Fender Tru-Shell picks

    Since this thread came up I’ve ordered and tried the Tru Shells, Hawks and Red Bears. The hawks and the Red Bears are the prettiest picks I own, that’s for sure. I’ve drilled “grip holes” in all my...

    Re: Fender Tru-Shell picks

    I got a Medium, Heavy and Extra Heavy from Amazon in the 346 shape. Interesting thing is that the Heavy version I got is about 15% smaller than the Medium and Extra Heavy.

    I did put a little...

    Re: BAS(s)

    String bass was my first and primary instrument but these days it bores me to death. There is no glory in holding down a groove and nobody really wants to hear a bass solo. At the bluegrass jams...

    Re: A Pickup that Works for Me

    Ugh, I would never strap/putty/tape all that stuff to my mandolin no matter how good the pickup sounds. So many invisible options on the market that sound great. If you want a floating magnetic...

    Re: Fender Tru-Shell picks

    I tend to like the darker sounding picks these days but may put a bevel on one side to see how it changes the sound. It's also my experience that picks like this will "auto-bevel" with time as they...

    Re: Fender Tru-Shell picks

    I got a Tru-shell Extra Heavy in the mail last night and had a chance to play with it this morning. Compared it to a CT-55 and Primetone 1.5. To my ears the Tru-shell seems to have a strong...

    Re: New Kentucky KM-606 mandolins are in the wild!

    I love the color on the top, would prefer to see a little more grain on the back and sides, but overall it's a really cool looking mandolin in my opinion. I know I'm not typical, but I am really...
