    Re: Jet City Guitars

    Good guy. Been around quite a while. I notice he has been selling instruments for Eli West. I think that’s his Blazer & Henkes guitar in the classifieds.

    Re: Brentrup Mandolins

    There are so many great instruments out there, and more being made. What we believed was the end all and be all ten years ago, even five years ago continues to be refined and new building techniques...

    If you are interested in the TME one, call and ask for Jordan. He will give you an honest assessment.

    Re: Bourgeois Guitars Partners with Eastman

    They’ve had a variety of financial partners since 2000. After Pantheon’s principal owner, Patrick Theimer exited there was a local Portland money man named John Karp. It’s my understanding that he...

    That one has been there several years.
  9. Re: Campanella two-point (How to make an accent on due?)

    Not that I’ve tried. Are you looking for something that’s easier on your hands? I have noticed that the neck on Due is a little larger than on some of my other mandolins. How about trying monel...
  10. Re: Campanella two-point (How to make an accent on due?)

    I have a Due. I put D’Addario NB strings on it. But mine has a European top and is x-braced. You might try a 11.5 as an E. Don’t go down in gauge. As Bill says, it won’t improve the sound. You...

    Re: Brentrup Mandolins

    I played the TME one. Bit too dry for me. Played a new Girouard G5 next to it, and at 60% of the price it just overpowered it.

    You can’t go by what’s listed on sites either, because lots of...
  13. Re: Curt Mangan Monel medium string price increase?

    String selection depends a lot on the individual instrument. The monels don’t sound great on every mandolin, but sound great on enough of mine that I keep a supply around. They do last a long time...

    For the curious, “da capo” is a musical term which in Italian translates to “from the beginning”.
