    Re: Stands?

    This is a great discussion. What a coincidence. I'm a mechanic also and understand the mechanics of this situation. What I'm suggesting that since this has been a problem for so long, for so many,...

    Hey Mike,

    Re: J75

    I've been using the TI Starks for a few years but since I got my hearing aids I feel they are lacking some tone for bluegrass. How long do the 75's last? I get a little under 6 months out of the TI's.
