    Re: D'addario String Comparison Video

    Just took off a set of XT Daddarios after about 2 months. They were still pretty good but I really prefer the feel and tone of Daddario Monels. I used the XT strings on two different F5 mandos and...

    Re: Material Below the Bridge

    Not nearly the affectation that is the last 9 or 10 frets on a full-Florida fretboard extention.

    Re: Who has thin bluechips?

    Whatever the thickness or brand I want speed bevels.

    I like to add a little steeper bevel on a Red Bear Xtra heavy for mandolin.

    Re: Mandolin Orange on today Show

    That Gil reminds me of the X-braced one I had of about that vintage. Great mando but couldn't afford to keep it.

    Such is life.

    Re: What does a mando set-up cost in your area?

    A good set-up person/repairman is worth their weight in platinum.

    Even if I could do it myself I would rather pay to have the job done well. Then I can spend more time playing.

    I don't have...

    Re: Marty Stuart's ex-Loar?

    From the few,3,Loars I have played and the one '29 Fern,I reckon I would prefer a mid to late 20's Fern as my Holy Grail mando. (With a 1" plus a hair nut.)

    Never used one thinner than a 50.

    Will BC make a pick shaped like a Wegen? I need to give them a call.
