    Re: D'Addario Strings - Ask Us Anything

    Re: What’s your travel case?

    My vote would go for the Crossrock fiberglass. I don't have one for my mandolin, but I have the carbon fiber shaped version for one of my fiddles. It's super light, compact, offers great protection...

    Re: Loudness with Chris Thile CT 55 Bluechip pick?

    I had the same experience, and it's not my right hand either! I do like the CT55 but it does draw a noticeably more "delicate" or "less full" tone and lower volume from my mandolin compared to the...
  9. Re: What is the most mandolins you've owned at one time?

    Thank you everyone for making me feel like I am GAS-free! I have one F model, and one oval-hole A, as well as 2 fiddles and that's it.
  10. Re: Lose grip on a thick pick or use a thin pick?

    How tight or loose a grip you keep on a pick is also inherent to the amount of grip strength and tension you tend to hold. Try keeping your right hand loose, but firm, and only using tension in the...

  13. Re: Newbie here, suffering from analysis paralysis

    I can back up the Kentucky recommendation. My instrument was higher than your price bracket, but still not super high end (KM-756s) but definitely is a great, well-made instrument, that is easily...
  14. Re: Do you ever sing the notes of a tune while you play it?

    It's definitely a good idea at times. I like to do it when learning a song, not so much for singing since I have an awful time memorizing lyrics and playing and singing was never my strong suit. I...

    Re: Help comparing Kentuckys for upgrade!

    I have a Kentucky KM-756 I got for $800 and it's quite good. I DID upgrade to a Cumberland Acoustic bridge which upped the final tally, but I'm sure stock would still be pretty nice. So I would say...

    Re: Substitutes for ebony?

    I would love Ironwood on an instrument. It's also an Excellent wood for wind instruments. All I have seen has ended up as a lovely milk chocolate color. Hearing about all those trees just being...

    Re: Expensive mandolins

    I think it's like the cyclists with the high end gear but not the legs that another poster mentioned. I used to be a big cyclist. 2K is the most I've ever spent on an instrument or bicycle. All have...
