    Re: Intentionally Imperfect Tuning

    I haven't tried it with mandolin, but on banjo I often tune the B string slightly flat. I can't remember the logic for it, but it does sounds better that way.

    Sounds like there are similar...

    I suggest do them all at the same time, for many reasons.

    Re: Storage: Case vs Hanging on the Wall

    For whatever reasons I always keep my mandolins in their cases, don't really like them on a stand, and I've never been a fan of hanging instruments on the wall. I don't mind guitars or banjos in...

    Re: In praise of mandolin builder Matt Ruhland

    Nice. Warm and resonant.

    Sounds like a wool sweater and whiskey.
  12. Re: Moving past my F9...looking for recommendations.

    At the risk of jumping into a nearly bottomless conversation pool here, given the many many fine builders out there, I'll just recommend one for you to consider: Kimble.

    Re: Leave leather strap on?

    +1

    I've kept leather straps on mandolins and banjos in the cases for years, no issues at all. I only take them off my guitars due to the nature of the strap and how it fits in the case.

    Guess I'll have to view it on the web site, if it lasts long enough to get there.

    Thanks for passing that along. Guess the Kimble isn't on their website yet.

    I noticed Elderly has a similar 2-bar Artist. Almost looks like they came from the same batch. Nice.

    That new 2-bar is stunning. I'm looking forward to the sound clip, but I suspect it may sound in line with its looks.

    Straight Up Strings

    I've always used the same strings on my mandolins, and had no particularly reason to change brands or sizes.
