    Re: New string formula?

    I'm a fan of Curt Mangan strings, but I never liked the sound or feel of the EXP strings. I find the uncoated Mangans last for a long time, easily as long as any coated strings I've used. I have had...

    Re: Which way do musicians make more money?

    KEB, I think .35 a stream is wildly high. I think I was getting a fraction of a penny per stream. A 12 track album stream might earn the artist a nickel. Buy a CD or buy a download directly from the...

    Re: Your Wegen Pick

    I have some TF120s that I've been using lately. I don't think anyone has mentioned that if you change your grip to uncover a couple of the holes in them, there's less wind resistance for faster...
