    Re: Carbon Fiber Mandolin

    Well I guess tastes vary a lot - I think that mandolin of yours is stunning. I would love to have such a beautiful piece of functional art as part of my collection. Maybe someday....

    Re: Monroe on another guitar

    There are a lot of good videos on that page! Thanks for posting. I love the Skaggs MTV-era music video I’m Just A Country Boy (Bill takes a trip to “New York”).
  6. Re: Small speakers revisited, and we have a new winner: Sony XB-2

    Wow - if that little Sony box compares favorably with the Yamaha THR-10 that is definitely a high bar. I have the Yamaha THR-10 which I use for many things - most often simply for listening to music...

    Tim and Eric are phenomenal pickers. I took a mandolin workshop from Tim at Walker Creek Music Camp a few years ago. Drinking from a fire hose - he gave us so much great instruction, it was truly a...

    I would very much like to be on the mailing list for this jam. My home is up there but I am currently living in Redwood City. I hope to be back in SoCo full time by late 2020. I play guitar and...

    Re: I can’t play now

    I hope you have a full recovery and return to your enjoyment of music and mandolin in time, Doc. The human body is a miraculous thing. Give it time, listen to your doctors, and stay positive. There...

    Re: Ellis F5 Fern at Gryphon

    I played that A5 with every intention of buying it. I have a Northfield M but I fell in love with all the figure and polish of the A5. I brought my M with me for the audition. I spent quite a while...

    Re: Bluegrass song libraries for tablet?

    There’s a good archive of bluegrass standards here in OnSong format. SongSheet Pro will import OnSong formatted files.
  15. Re: Balancing practice between two instruments...

    Add me to the list of folks trying to balance skill on more than one instrument. When I began on mandolin (almost a decade ago I guess) I had been playing guitar for 30+ years and dabbled on bass...

    Re: Eastman MD-305

    The Kentucky KM-150 has a flat fretboard. The KM-250 and the Eastman MD-305 are radiused. If you are happy with the fretboard configuration on your current mandolin you may want to factor that into...

    IMHO you are making the right decision to stick with your Eastman for now and get some more experience with it. I completely understand the allure of those Collings MTs. I'm lucky enough to live in...

    Re: izotope Recording Question

    I own a Spire. It’s a very handy little multitrack recorder. Sound quality with the built-in mic is good, but not as good as can be achieved using the phantom powered XLR inputs with a high quality...

    Re: How Much Better Does It Get

    Your MD305 is a very nice instrument, a huge bang for the buck. I know because I just bought an MD305 for my 'beach' mandolin to bring along when I want to keep my higher priced Northfield safe at...

    Here's another option: https://strummachine.com/. The only downside is that it requires a $5 monthly subscription (which can be reduced somewhat by paying for a year in advance). I used it for a...

    Re: ‘Beach’ mandolin

    It's already growing on me (played it another hour or so this morning ;-). The Northfield M is definitely NOT a case queen - it's got plenty of honest play wear on it and will continue to accumulate...

    ‘Beach’ mandolin

    Re: New Fender 1.5mm pick

    Sweetwater delivered mine quickly. I have given one a test drive on both a dread and mandolin. This pick feels stiffer than a standard Fender 346 extra heavy tortoise shell. I like the 'F' relief cut...

    As a chronic PAS sufferer, I was compelled to order a 3-pack of these picks (as well as a 3-pack of the tortoise shell version) as soon as I read this thread. I'll share my thoughts on these as soon...
