    Re: Tone Guard!!

    Same for me [received the Tone-Gard yesterday] and I'll add that it fits well on my Silverangel and fits into a Hoffee case.

    And thanks to Banjo Ben for prompt service.:)

    Re: The latest in plectrum technology.....

    Just curious as to why audiences keep being brought up? Do any musicians decide on what pick they use (or fiddle bow, or drum sticks) based on whether the audience can hear the difference? I've...

    Re: The latest in plectrum technology.....
