    Re: F Mandolin gig bag

    Another Gator user here and it has done the job nicely for me. I've even flew with it in the overhead compartment on a plane.

    Re: New Mandolin Day!

    No need to wait, just open it up and enjoy it when it comes. I fall in love with my F5S's tone all over again every single day. Have fun! :)

    Re: Strings By Mail

    I bought some picks from them a couple weeks ago and was impressed when they sent a personalized note along with my order. I would most definitely use them again when the need arises.

    Re: James tailpiece on a Northfield F5S?

    To add another question, I had once removed the screws from the tailpiece on my F5S and could not get the tailpiece to budge. Is there something more to it? I didn't want to put too heavy of a hand...

    Re: Northfield is simply nailing it lately

    Nailing it lately? My 2014 NF-FS5 is pretty spectacular! I couldn't have picked a better first mandolin, and I am still inspired every time I play something on it. :)

    Re: D'Addario - Seeking Mandolin Beta Testers

    I've had my set on since October 23rd, and they aren't giving up. They still sound great- maybe even better now. I play for at least an hour a day, sometimes more. The tone of these strings on my...

    Re: gentle cleaning MD315

    I'm a fan of Virtuoso cleaner as far as products go. I use it, and their polish (very sparingly) on my satin finished Northfield NF-FS5. The polish made it shine more than a satin finish should, but...
  11. Re: Which Blue Chip most closely resembles a Wegen bluegrass pick

    Doh!
  12. Re: Which Blue Chip most closely resembles a Wegen bluegrass pick

    I have a BlueChip TAD-1R 50, and the Wegen TF140. With exception of my 1R corner on the BlueChip, the picks are exactly the same shape. The Wegen seems just slightly thicker.

    Re: D'Addario - Seeking Mandolin Beta Testers

    The strings I replaced were less than a month old and were coated. If they needed changing, maybe it wouldn't have been such a PITA. In any case, it was worth it, and I owed to to D'Addario to put...

    Re: D'Addario - Seeking Mandolin Beta Testers

    Finally got around to putting my set on a few minutes ago. (I hate changing strings). So far I really like them. They feel smoother. Tone is brighter than the heavy D'Addario coated strings I had on...

    Re: Northfield finish issues

    My 2014 still looks brand new, and STILL puts a smile on my face every time I think about it- When I play it, I'm grinning ear-to-ear. Tone to die for! :)

    Re: Northfield mandolin

    I got my F5S a few months ago and could not be happier. It was my first mandolin after playing guitar exclusively for many years. It's a really great instrument and I fall more in love with it every...

    Re: Blue Chip Recommendations please

    I was going to suggest a "-1R" just for that extra versatility. I bought a TAD-1R 50 for my guitar, and when I decided to learn how to play mandolin, it transitioned perfectly for me. I find myself...

    Re: New Northfield and some pics

    I couldn't be happier with this NF-FS5. The tone, the playability, the way it projects, sustains, and resonates. Granted, it's the first mandolin I've ever played, but I'm not new to acoustic guitar...

    Yeah, it's not to shabby at all. I'm amazed by the tone that comes out of this thing!

    Bluegrass is what drew me to the instrument, but I'm also interested in classical, jazz, and Celtic and most...
