  1. Re: Unwanted string noises with mandolin and mandola

    My wife is always complaining about unwanted noise from the mandolin, but I keep playing anyway....
  2. Re: Win: A Private Mandolin Lesson with David Grisman

    Tough to decide what to talk about I'm sure! For me it would just be inspirational moreso than actual technique stuff. Maybe some specific examples of licks or chords from tunes that I have worked...

    Re: Curt Mangan Strings - Wonderful

    I love the Curt Mangan monels. I use the Gabe Wiseman set which is the "custom medium" gauges.
    I can't use Phosphor bronze from any brand as my hands just corrode the heck out of them in no time, CM...

    I am currently the highest bidder, so everyone else can ignore this post. Just kidding :)
  6. Re: F5 Upgrade Guidance - Gibson, Collings, Northfield

    I absolutely love my 4th gen Northfield. Total different beast from F5S or other models so anyone comparing those is apples and pomegranates.
    You can probably beat it for 5 figures if you're lucky,...

    Re: D'Addario Nickel Bronze Strings

    I loved NB until I switched to monel. Both types avoid the awful green crud I get with Phosphor bronze. The monels have all I like about the NB and just a little more, but I would buy some at this...

    Re: Vinyl!

    Thanks, I have tried to gear it towards good mandolin picking as much as I can. As much Dawg and Mike Marshall as I can find, Alan Bibey in the New Quicksilver, Doyle, Ricky, Bobby Osborne. The Dolly...

    Re: Vinyl!

    Dang, Manzanita is one I have been after but after Tony's passing the prices really jumped on all that stuff.

    Discogs has been great for grabbing some relatively cheap vinyl. I try not to spend...
  10. Re: Tony Rice Inducted into North Carolina Music Hall of Fame

    I wish more things like this would induct folks while they are around to appreciate it. Should have happened many years ago

    Sierra Hull's fall tour 2021

    Last night I attended Sierra Hull's show at the Ramkat in Winston-Salem, NC. Cool venue, very friendly, great beer, masks and vaccination required.

    It was amazing! Not only Sierra which everyone...

    still loving mine after 3 weeks! Maybe some very light scratches to the surface but not enough to notice while playing.

    Re: Monel strings

    That's all I have been using for the last couple of years, really love them. You don't get that super bright jangly sound like the PB and the sound stays pretty consistent throughout the life. I will...

    found an old used copy on vinyl a while back but definitely getting these HD versions, very cool!
  16. Re: ArtistWorks discount - What do you think?

    I have been in Mike's class since 2017 and now also in Sierra's.
    There is a little bit of overlap on the tunes (the standards like Red Haired Boy, Old Joe Clark, Nine Pound Hammer, etc.) but of...
  17. Re: ArtistWorks discount - What do you think?

    Just a note to add that if you find a great discount code you can go ahead and add time to your subscription before it expires. My Mike Marshall membership was originally to expire in August one year...

    Re: Northfield F style strap

    I believe so, that is how I got ahold of him. I recall there was a decent wait for a custom made strap with your name etc. on it but he happened to have this one plain that just needed holes so I...

    Re: Northfield F style strap

    I picked up my strap from Ronnie Harrison who makes these for Northfield so it is identical minus their logo. I really like it. The workmanship is very good and I like the width on my shoulder. Since...

    Re: Apollo Mike Marshall picks

    Agree with all that Keith had to say about it, nicely put.
    The feel on the thumb is very similar to a Blue Chip to me in that it is very smooth but almost sticks to the skin. I imagine it will get...

    Re: Northfield FS vs Artist series

    Yea so there are also several versions of the Artist series. 2 bars, 5 bars, 4th gen (which I have and absolutely love!).

    Best advice is to try and play a few different ones if you can

    I received mine yesterday and so far I am really loving it. To me it has all the things I like about the casein picks plus some of the characteristics of a Blue Chip thrown in. Great feel on the...

    Congrats! It's beautiful!

    I have 4th gen #21. I was impressed with it out of the box, but let me tell you, 8 months or so later and it is so much better believe it or not! The tone is just so full...

    Re: Apollo Mike Marshall picks

    I ordered two on the assumption that I will love it lol.
    I have two Apollo casein picks that I really like, both with very different tone so it will be interesting to see how these compare.
