    Re: D'Addario Monel sets

    Monels are wonderful on my MT and the DíAddarioís are excellent. I have wanted to try the Manganís for a while! Dan

    Re: Drop-in replacements? MD-515, El Rey

    Good to know Mike. You never know when an MD515 might show up used for a great price. A very nice hand-carved mandolin, but a tuning machine upgrade might become needful. Dan

    Re: I sure miss my Collings

    Mark, I really understand what you’re saying. When you sell an instrument you love, it can feel like part of yourself is missing. You have to really love playing music for it to have much impact! ...

    Re: Gibson A Oval Tuning Machines

    Hi Russ and All, I took a while to get back to this project. I did buy the Golden Age tuners from Stew-Mac and they fit perfectly on the best playing and sounding of the two mandolins. My 1912 is...

  13. Re: Are Thomastik-Infeld Strings That much Better?

    Thanks for pointing that out for me, Pat! I was off and it makes a difference to be sure.
  14. Re: Are Thomastik-Infeld Strings That much Better?

    Pat, I appreciate this reference because it is a rare offering of both round wound and flat wound steel. I like that tone and this gives me another option to consider. I will compare the set-up of...
  15. Re: Are Thomastik-Infeld Strings That much Better?

    Thanks for that ... what is your scale length? Mine is 20”. Oops! You said that it also is 20”! Guess they wouldn’t fit. You saved me $60.
  16. Re: Are Thomastik-Infeld Strings That much Better?

    I have been playing the Octave a couple of hours today and I am getting accustomed to it and really enjoying trying a variety of things. Fiddle tunes, using it to accompany singing (a song Pat...
  17. Re: Are Thomastik-Infeld Strings That much Better?

    Good info guys. My take away is that I will possibly try the Curt Mangans but not the Thomaskins. Otherwise, I enjoy the D’Addario monels on my MT and may want to try an octave set if there is such...

    I have a New Eastman MDO 305 Octave, which I really like the way it is opening up new opportunities to grow as a mandolin player. I have noticed the Thomastik-Infeld strings which run just over...
