  1. Re: Ball end strings for an electric mando?

    Any electric guitar set that has the gauges you are looking for. I'm normally a D'Addario fan but currently have a set of Martin Darco Custom Light on my Mandobird IV and they work great for only...

    Re: Are Eastmans a keeper?

    Having briefly participated in that thread as a possible buyer for an MKLSFTB, I couldn't believe your timeframe was accurate. And then I checked. Mike posted the original FYI in September 2016. Ye...
  3. Re: Newbie wondering about "The Loar" F-style mando quality

    This right here dude (NFI):

    A 'The Loar' 500VS was my first upgrade after originally learning on an Epiphone MM50, which you currently can find in...
  4. Re: help me out, how to do vibrato on a 4 string

    Re: D'Addario Strings - Ask Us Anything

    Hi Kyle,

    #1: I was comparing the EXP74CM packaging to contemporary D'Addario mandolin, banjo, and guitar string packaging. I've just never seen the inner paper sleeves labelled 'Mandolin First...

    Re: 2000 Gibson Flatiron Cadet

    Saw the one you're talking about online a couple days ago. Looks kinda funny without '(The) Flatiron' on the headstock, but that's just me. Built by Gibson in Nashville instead of Bozeman a year...
  7. Re: The Traveling Pick Sampler - Anyone Interested?

    I got you, Peter. Standby.

    A Red Bear will be an awesome addition! I'm surprised we haven't had one yet, although I do remember picking with one sometime. Might have been at a jam instead.

  8. Re: The Traveling Pick Sampler - Anyone Interested?

    Not sure what this means because the updated inventory was typed up right before they got shipped out, but comparing the list to my picture above for confirmation I noticed I'd missed including the...
  9. Re: The Traveling Pick Sampler - Anyone Interested?

    Willem,

    I've looked because like you I think it's a great pick and would like to have one, but I can't find that particular pick in stock online anywhere and don't even know the model. But, since...

    Re: D'Addario Strings - Ask Us Anything

    Hi Alex,

    I've played and loved D'Addario strings on a variety of instruments for decades. Since someone just mentioned stickers, this should give you an idea of how long it's been (I've posted...

    Re: Do We Really Need Another Pick Thread?

    V-Pick or original ProPlec version?

    I've been playing more electric mando than previously lately and found a sharply pointed V-Pick Lite Freakishly Large to be the quietest pick in my arsenal...
  16. Re: The Traveling Pick Sampler - Anyone Interested?

    That's quite the starter spread considering the current iteration started with Caleb sending out a lone Wegen. :disbelief:

    But now we have two samplers with well over a hundred picks each! It's...

    Re: Sam Bush rocks out on E-Mando

    Awesome. Great sounding band and certain to polarize as is Sam's wont. He pulls some fantastic tone from that Mandocaster (would love a detailed rig rundown) and his wah-wah-filled solo at the end...

    Howdy all. As it does, life has gotten in the way of posting to the forum recently so my apologies for any ignored requests to be added to the recipient lists for the picks.

    Hello all,

    Oh yeah, me too! And which one are you again? ;)

    Those smart pickers who want to join us for a great time at the beach shouldn't wait too long. It fills up quicker each year.
