    Re: To be or not to be (a bluegrass player)

    Outside of the house, yes.
    At home I like to work on jazz, Dawg, choro, Bach. But that's just for my enjoyment. I live in NC so if you want to play with other folks you better play bluegrass.

    Re: Vinyl!

    Dang, Manzanita is one I have been after but after Tony's passing the prices really jumped on all that stuff.

    Discogs has been great for grabbing some relatively cheap vinyl. I try not to spend...

    That's all I have been using for the last couple of years, really love them. You don't get that super bright jangly sound like the PB and the sound stays pretty consistent throughout the life. I will...

    Re: Northfield F style strap

    I believe so, that is how I got ahold of him. I recall there was a decent wait for a custom made strap with your name etc. on it but he happened to have this one plain that just needed holes so I...

    Re: Northfield F style strap

    I picked up my strap from Ronnie Harrison who makes these for Northfield so it is identical minus their logo. I really like it. The workmanship is very good and I like the width on my shoulder. Since...

    Re: Apollo Mike Marshall picks

    Agree with all that Keith had to say about it, nicely put.
    The feel on the thumb is very similar to a Blue Chip to me in that it is very smooth but almost sticks to the skin. I imagine it will get...

    Re: Northfield FS vs Artist series

    Yea so there are also several versions of the Artist series. 2 bars, 5 bars, 4th gen (which I have and absolutely love!).

    Best advice is to try and play a few different ones if you can

  14. Re: Pickup for Northfield Octave - Big Twin?

    I had Northfield install a K&K pickup in my flat top octave when I purchased it. They just called it a Twin and I don't know enough about pickups to tell you any better than that.

    Re: The Brilliance of Dawg

    Dawg music is definitely alive and well! On my side of the country we had some great jams on those tunes over the last couple of years at Swannanoa and Alan Bibey camp. Rick Rorex is one guy that has...

    Re: Todd Phillips Released

    Just listened all the way through, that is great stuff! Makes me wonder what else Todd would have done with the mandolin if it was his main instrument instead of the bass!

    I love the CM Monels but I get the Gabe Wiseman set so they have the heavier A and E gauges. Been exclusively a Daddario fan for years but this set converted me!
