    Re: It's an F, it's not an F

    I thought the soundboard/body was round at first. Took me a while(right after he mentioned it) that it is really oval.

    Re: Monel strings

    Used D'A Monels mando strings for a couple years. Switched to Mangan because they come in gauges I like better and sound as good as D'A IMHO.

    Re: What are your go-to crowd pleasers?

    If it's Sunday start out with a spiritual like "Revival", as in Newgrass. Or "Uncloudy Day". Really nice if others join in singing. Chop it hard and get ready to retune for any further picking.

    Re: Help with case color

    I really like the wild colors my Pegasus cases, an F-style in Daffodil yellow and an A-style in Tangerine.

    When in use they have a case-cover anyway so it doesn't really matter. I just like those...

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld Strings

    Flatwound TI strings are an acquired taste I reckon. Nice to the fingers. Don't seem to cut in a group setting.

    Tried mittel and starks. Sounded the same when I took them off as when new.

    Re: string life with limited playing

    Monel strings has spoilt me. Didn't really prefer the Martin Monels.
