    Re: Your Wegen Pick

    The TF120 is my favorite pick. I like the black ones better but I dont think there is any science as to why.

    The M150 that I have is alright. I like for softer music, open chords, and tremolo...
  6. Re: Advice needed for complement to my Weber Gallatin F Mandolin

    If I had the money I'd jump all over this... how about another Gallatin! :)

    Actually, I still might. I'd have to do some serious convincing with the boss though.

    Different strokes for different folks! And as you've already seen/read there is no specific favorite pick thickness for Mandolin players.

    Re: Resetting Expectations on Quality

    I feel this!

    Last summer I traveled to ND and only had my (the) Loar lm170 for a couple weeks. My Weber never sounded sweeter when I got home to it!
