    Re: F style strap recommendation...

    I have a Sully's on my F5S, and a Little Satchel on the Kimble. The latter one is a lighter braided strap of kangaroo. The Sully's strap is a little heavier, bridle leather.

    Both are awesome,...

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld Strings

    Thanks - got a couple more sets of monels to work through, but I'll give them a try. I have used TI's on my bass guitar, and once I got used to the lower tension, they were great.

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld Strings

    How's the bass response? I've got D'A Monels on my F5S and like the way they sound in general, but the bass could use a bit more 'oomph.' I tried the D'A flats and liked the feel, but the sound was...

  12. Re: Hello All. I'm new here, first post. Loving the mandolin.

    My first was an Eastman MD 315, and you'll find a lot of us on the Cafe who have a similar background (decades of guitar, bass, etc. prior to mandolin). Eastmans are great instruments to get...

    Re: Ella Recording

    My understanding is that it was on loan to Andrew from John's widow. Ella was John's personal mandolin.
