    Re: Ron Cole-Prayers Please!

    Prayers sent. It's an awful diagnosis but they've come a long way with new treatments. I will keep him in my prayers.

    Re: Modern F4 options?

    RobH makes a good point. It's worth doing a bit of research on what kind of oval sound you like.

    If you like your banjo eatin two point a modern F4 with a cantilevered fretboard might suit you. ...
  3. Re: Northfield F5S consistency (or buying without checking)

    Agreed. Both the NF5S and the MT have consistent quality and a lot of representation online so you can really get an idea of what they sound like. I'm sure there is a range but I haven't heard any...

    Re: Thomastiks on a Northfield Calhoun?

    I've heard some players find GHS Silk & Steel sets easier to play. Might be worth investigating.

    Perfect for Christmas gigs. Count me in!
  7. Re: Do you take your best or most valuable mandolin to gigs?

    Yes. Always.

    That said we're old enough now to request shade and 40 degrees or over in our contracts. Pretty much our only 2 conditions.

    Re: To be or not to be (a bluegrass player)

    I suppose if the question was do you play some Bluegrass on your mandolin most would say yes.

    Re: Where are all the (new) mandolins?

    Do you think we're reaching equilibrium or do you suspect it will get worse?

    Right now it seems like we're still spoiled for choice. If I wanted to buy today I would have great choices at every...

    Re: Ready to upgrade mandolin - need advice!

    Assuming you want to stick with F holes (like on your Fender), I would look at the Eastman 505 and 515 Varnish finish. I can take or leave the distressing but it's tastefully done, they look and,...

    Re: Post a picture of your band!!

    That's a nyckelharpa. It's a kind of a keyed fiddle but more in
    the viola range. It was Sherri's pandemic project and she's pretty smitten with it. It's hard to get her to play guitar anymore! ...

    Re: Slow, sweet songs

    Two of the best for sweet melodies are Peter Ostroushko and John Reischman.

    Heart of the Heartland and Prairie Jewel would be two great ones to learn.

    They call their XS plain steel strings "Fusion twist" and put out a graph that says they are 131% more stable. They call their XT "NY Steel" and tout those as well. No mention of the plain steel on...
