    Re: unable to contact Music Emporium

    Generally they're super fast and super nice in their email responses. Maybe they're having IT probs right now.

    Re: mandolin tunning machines

    Grovers are super nice. I have both Grovers (on a Rigel) and Waverlys and the latter aren't that much better in terms of feel and tuning stability.

    Re: Linear Crystal Amp Value

    I suggest asking in the amp forum on TGP - thegearpage.net - where a lot of electric players hang out.

    Re: Repairing necks with nonadjustable trussrod

    I bought a used instrument - apparently with a carbon fiber stiffener - but with no adjustable truss rod. The neck & intonation were off requiring the frets pulled and the board replaned. The...

    Re: Which GDAE instrument for chord playing?

    I had a similar experience - OM just not working for that as well as guitar - and just ended up teaching myself guitar (which I learned initially as a superset of mandolin strung backwards :) ).

    Re: New Calton (Austin) opinions?

    Unbelievable as in pitiful (yes, I agree) or as in, "that's not so"? That's not to say it's not a well-made, protective and attractive case - it very much is.

    But, the older Calton - I have one...

    Re: New Calton (Austin) opinions?

    That would depend on your package of strings. Definitely not the standard square pack of J74s though.

    Re: $3,700 Ovation?

    I actually had an Adamas (a 12-string Melissa Etheridge to be precise) and it was an excellent 12 string. Super nice neck, very tuning stable, and 12 strings were enough to drive it to sound good...

    Re: New Calton (Austin) opinions?

    I bought a new Calton (Austin) as the home for my Ellis A5 Special. Fit and finish are very nice and the hardware if anything is nicer than my older Canadian Calton in which my Rigel G110 lives...
  14. Re: Case question for Pava / Ellis A-style mandolin owners

    My newish Ellis A5 is also a slightly tight fit in a TKL Collings. Also in a newer, non-custom, F5 Calton.

    My older Rigel with Grovers is at least that stable, once the strings have been broken in of course.

    Re: Straps for A style mandolin

    For a short (yet too long a time), I had a mandola that needed its crudely installed metal strap button - quite possibly from a bass - replaced.

    I found a super nice one Made in USA from ebony...

    Re: Retopping an "el cheapo"

    It would be interesting to hear/play a Gilchrist retopped MSO (mandolin shaped object). But probably not the best use of his time.

    New Calton Quibble

    Just bought a new (Sonic Blue, very cool) Calton for an equally new (and very cool) Ellis A5 Special.

    I have an older Calton so I can see the many improvements, but the compartment under the neck...

    Re: A Really Great Mandolin Stand

    I had the triple instrument version (GS432B) and thought it was great for a while.

    Re: New Mandolin

    I learned to play the guitar thinking of it as a very large mandolin with the top four strings in reverse order. :)

    I agree with Tone Poems, noting that it also makes some pretty marginal mandolins sound great too.
