    Re: Screws for tuner buttons

    One of the Michael Kelly mandolins that I purchased during their blow-out sale was missing a tuner screw. I wrote to them about it and they sent me 3 or 4 of them. I've used them all since then,...

    Re: Chris Thile's new pick

    Re: Virzi tone producer

    Personally, I suspect the Virzi mounting system has as much to do with any tone/volume differences as the Virzi itself does.

    Re: Chris Thile's new pick

    Hmmm, I can send Chris a couple of my Fender Heavy picks if he wants them... They're really easy to replace when you get mad and throw them at the sound tech, in my experience anyway.

    Thank you for the info!

    My opinion, and I'm sure others will offer theirs and they'll be just as valid, is that you have to follow your heart. If you're hearing the sound you really love from an...
