    Re: Waterloo WL-M review/ video

    Thank you, Shaun. Ultimately I did resort to the needle nose pliers. Still tricky. Hopefully I will get more adept with practice.

    Re: Waterloo WL-M review/ video

    Any recommendations for strings for the Waterloo? I just put on a new set of medium D'Addario EJ74's and it was a flop sweat inducing experience. The tailpiece and the string loops did not want to...

    I acquired my Waterloo sunburst about a year ago. I have a herd of mandolins and some were pricey. The Waterloo is my only flat top and the least expensive of the bunch. That being said, it has...

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    I purchased a Waterloo from Artisan Guitars and couldn't be more pleased. It is beautifully built, plays like butter and sounds like a much older instrument. And given what new, good quality...

    Greetings,

    When I removed my Eastman DGM1 from its case today, the pick guard fell off. There is no apparent damage to either the pick guard or neck to which it was originally pinned and glued. It...

  13. Re: Requesting input about Collings MFO and MF5O and other ovals.

    Thank you, again for all of your thoughtful responses. Despite my expressed interest an oval hole, I tried out a Collings MF5 and found it excellent for my needs and acquired it. This, after playing...

    Thank you, Tom!
  15. Requesting input about Collings MFO and MF5O and other ovals.

    I would appreciate feedback/reviews of the Collings MFO and MF05 models. I play OT and Celtic and have often been told that the well projecting bluegrass sound of my F9 and Collings MT is "hard"...

    Re: tenor banjo string gauges

    Read a suggestion on a banjo oriented website to use octave mando strings when tuning GDAE and this has worked for me. I've not had good luck with banjo strings designated for the Irish tenor, due...
  19. Re: String Recommendations for Eastman Grisman DGM 1?

    I just put on a set of J74's and am very pleased with the results. Will try GHS in future. Thomastiks are out of my price range despite their longevity. Thank you for all your responses.
  20. Re: String Recommendations for Eastman Grisman DGM 1?

    Thank you, Eddie. There's quite a difference indeed between mine with Martin lights and yours with Thomastik.

    Re: Lost a Tuner Key Screw for my Gibson F-9
