    Re: The latest in plectrum technology.....

    Need to try one. The end of my right forefinger is gone and I use the round butt of a teardrop now. Might would help me grip it better.

    Rounded for me! The pointed tips hang me up. I always use Dawgs or the butt of an Dunlop Ultex Rhino.

    Re: C.E. Ward in the ads

    Hey! I know this mandolin. Great one. If I needed one, it wouldn't be in the adds. I knew the builder and know the owner. I have number 16 Skip Kelley. Skip studied under C.E. Ward.
