    Re: The Dawg Leash

    Just yesterday I saw a video of a banjo player using a bungee strap for a banjo strap.

    Re: Lakota mandolin straps

    I have a Lakota guitar strap. It does not stretch but it does shed. I'll find little bits of leather on my shoulder.

    Hope you are getting better soon!
  4. Re: Feedbacks on my F Mandolin and complete gear :)

    I met Eddie Blevins and played several of his mandolins at a luthier gathering in Burnsville, NC two years ago this month. He is a fine fellow and his mandolins sounded real good. You got a dandy...

    Re: D'Addario XS Strings

    No not XT, XS in the white package. But I see what you are getting at since I found nothing under the XS nomenclature.

    D'Addario XS Strings

    So D'Addario feels it is necessary to keep improving on their products, with an ever rising price point. Somehow I ended up with a set of their mandolin strings in the newest incarnation. They...

    Re: XT we barely new ya!

    I pretty much stopped using D'Addario once they got out of control and stopped making strings I like at a price that was competitive.

    Re: Rubner tuners on Eastman MD305?

    Grover 309's would work and not break the budget.
  11. Re: Intermediate Mando - Good Mando to Step up to?

    I just bought a real nice Eastman 515 from a friend in Nashville who is not gigging much due to the pandemic. I guess things are getting pretty tight for them. If interested PM me, I don't need it...

    Re: Violin gear tuning machines?

    Wittner tuners work for my wife and I. They eliminate the need for fine tuners and they do not change the violin so much that it cannot be retrofitted with traditional pegs. I've grown to love them!

    Re: What are you looking forward to?

    I'm looking forward father's memorial service where I will be able to see family members who have gotten 2 vaccines. We haven't seen each other in a long time. We will honor a man who did a lot for...
  15. Re: which is better mass produced mando...Loar or Eastman

    Eastman has been the consistently best buy in the under $2000 range. They have their own factories so their quality is better than the Loars and Kentucky. That is what I recommend and if I was in...

    Re: Asheville, NC Area Music Shops?

    It all depends when you go in there. Joe has trouble keeping good stuff in stock and he doesn't handle any real high end stuff as far as brands. But I have played some nice Gibsons and got a really...

    Re: Asheville, NC Area Music Shops?

    I have bought and sold instruments through Acoustic Corner in the past. Good folks. They often have a surprising selection but they do move stuff out pretty regularly.
  18. Re: The Earl Scruggs Banjo Songbook: Selected Banjo Tab Accuratel

    Some of his stuff is real hard to get under your fingers. If this is truly correct it will be invaluable for younger players and others who have been trying to catch his style.

    Re: Cullng the herd

    We used to drive old, stripped down Bugs around in the mountains, sometimes on railroad tracks if there was nowhere else. You'd eat a lot of bugs with no wind shield.
  20. Re: Torn between 2 mandolins. / Eastman serial number question?

    Larger frets are the ticket on the Eastman mandolins. They really come to life.

    Re: Are Music Store Prices Firm?

    Guitar Center is not your normal music store. They are a highly leveraged corporate holding. The staff has no wiggle room. I would rather buy from a brick and mortar, mom and pop any day. Most would...

    Re: Am I seeing more A style mandolins?

    You can't judge the world of mandolins by bluegrass alone. F models may reign there but there is no need for the extra expense if all you want is good sound.
  25. Re: Quality of a 2014 vs 2021 Eastman MD315

    I bought an Eastman that I played in and had sounding good. Then the truss rod broke. I didn't know then what the issue was but it started acting funny. So I took it to the dealer who sent it back to...
