    Re: Colored notes in TablEdit

    sblock, I do appreciate the work that you did to correct the original. To rephrase what my original questions were:

    Re: Colored notes in TablEdit

    Oh, man. I found a way to get the red notes back to black -
    1. put the cursor on a red note.
    2. make sure the duration value button for the default note duration is set to the duration value of...

    Re: A question about floating pickguards

    Try Hill Country Stringworks and Cumberland Acoustics. You'll still have to drill the holes yourself or take the instrument to a luthier.
  10. Re: Weber factory tuner I.D. wanted / Adjustment question

    I am quite happy with them; haven't ever thought about upgrading.
  11. Re: Weber factory tuner I.D. wanted / Adjustment question

    I have the same tuners on my 2012 Rawhide. They look like Grover 309CN to me. And I have a set of worm-over 309 C's on another mando - the back plate is identical except it is flipped top to bottom.
  12. Re: Tip: Replacing Book Bindings with Spiral Bindings

    Yup. Then you buy another copy. I do have some inadvertent duplicates.:redface:
  13. Re: Tip: Replacing Book Bindings with Spiral Bindings

    I use Office Depot, which also does a good job. Only problem is that I can't read the title on the spine anymore. It sure is nice to be able to open them to a page and put it on a music stand.

    Re: Shipping Costs

    With a mandolin, cost almost always depends on the size of the box, not the weight. A half inch more any dimension can make a huge difference in cost. The guys who do the measuring always round up....

    Re: Which bridge should I get?

    I do like the newer style ("traditional") Brekke bridge for its adjustability under full string tension. I have old man's hearing, but to me, it sounds great.

    A wise guru once said: "For every mandolin there exists a perfect pick."

    And finally: "And never the twain shall meet."

  21. Re: Campanella two-point (How to make an accent on due?)

    That does work, but I believe the Due is named as the Italian word for two, as in two-pointer. Thus no accent.

    Re: I fear

    How old are you? If you are over 6, you'll never get clawhammer down right. But nobody will know.

    And if you happen to drop a thumb, just bend over and pick it up. Always good for a laugh.
  25. Re: mando in $300 price range for Italian songs

    I paid ~$300 for my Vega bowlback and it looks and sounds pretty good. It sounds good with O Solo Mio and Santa Lucia (my whole Italian repertoire). I see them on eBay from time to time for about the...
