    I loved your duet played on your mandos! Great job. It is hard to line these up. We have been doing virtual worship band videos in this way for online services and it has been fun but the timing...

    Re: Strap Recommendation for A-style

    Sounds like you would like a Lakota strap. I have three and they come in varied lengths and for A and F styles. Very comfortable and attractive appearance.

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld Strings

    So far, I am blown away by the the tone they produce from my MT and the ease of tension. My MT seems to love them too due to the reduced pull on the neck(tongue in cheek, but true)!

    Re: Is this how it starts?

    I went to the blog and that Strad is incredible! What a beauty. I love the flamed sides, the grain of the top and the stair stepped fingerboard extension. Great find! Well photographed as well.
