    I have several bowlbacks (American Conservatory, Lyon and Healy, Puglisi, and (I forget the other one, I've been sick and my brain is not sharp today,)) I bought Stagg bags (NFI) which fit all of...

    Former long time resident of Spotsylvania County here. I would advise you to just hang around in Picker’s Supply for a while and strike up some conversations with the folks there. Bluegrass is so...

    Regarding fit, Elderly says the chipboard case fits instruments up to 8” wide, 6 1/2” deep, and 25 3/4” long. The Eastman case says it fits up to 8” wide, 6” deep, and 26” long. One choice that...

    Strings and Beyond have sent me an email to suggest they have 20% off just for today-"CyberMonday" which will mean an even better deal on the strings.

  8. Re: New (to me) family American Conservatory mandolin questions

    Why all this talk about ball end ultra light strings? Loop end should work fine on that tailpiece I think. You are right about using ultra lights. Lots of instruments like that go ruined by being...

    I used to buy on ebay an excellent foam bowlback case for under $50. It was sold by a dealer named violinking but they do not seem to be online any more.

    I also bought one of these Warwick...

    I bought a bowlback hard case from Elderly Instruments (NFI). I use gig bags in the house (I have more than one bowlback) but bought a hard case in case I decide to take one out of the house to play.
