    Re: What do you do when you're Just. Not. Feeling it?

    Agree totally with this. What I have found is similar. I go back to a tune I really like but haven't played in awhile. Breeze through it....then slowly take it back apart and try to make every...

    Re: CGDA tuning on Mandolin?

    I went back into my notes.....I wound up using the D'Daddario J72 mandola set in the end. 14/23/36/49. The pressures were 21#/24#/24#/22# per string respectively (I do not recollect which...

    Re: CGDA tuning on Mandolin?

    Yes, you can redo the mandolin as a mandola. No you are not going to increase the loads on the neck by anything appreciable. You are still using the same strings and pressures on six of the...

    Ok...where do you put the obvious indicators that it is a copy? Why the fake label with Loar's signature....for what reason is that? Yes, you are a craftsman and I respect that aspect and believe...

    Dang....I REALLY did not need to see that. I had asked Mule if they would consider it a couple years ago. They said no so I let it go. Until now. Jeeeez.

    For anything over 500 (regardless of maker) my take would be: No trial period.....NO sale. That would be a deal breaker.
