    Re: New picks - Flow, Wegen, Primetones

    I agree with Br1ck, I had an episode of PAS last year, I went to various sites and bought a bunch of picks in my favorite thickness (0,75-0.8mm) and played with them all. BC and Charmed Life are...

    Re: Beginner

    I like Artistworks, but I think starting with a beginner book so you have a clue first makes it much more useful. I think if you know a few basic chords you will get much more out of Artistworks, and...
  3. Re: To the multi instrumentalists: which instrument is your no. 1

    Started on piano first as a child, and it's still my main instrument, but not very portable (LOL!) I took up guitar second in my teens (in the 1960s, didn't we all play guitar in the 1960s?,) and...

    Re: Unusual Suspects

    I have a "blonde" Collings MT f-hole, and when I "push" it, I have no trouble believing it can overpower a guitar or an electric bass. Two nice-looking instruments, BTW.

    Re: Is my MAS dead?

    Well, my GAS and MAS have been in remission for over a year. That being said, if I happened on a teens or 1920s Gibson for an incredible price, I would likely give in and buy it, but the chances of...

    Re: Looking for some recommendations

    Mandolin for Dummies is a helpful book no matter what learning method you pick. I recommend it as a good supplement.

    Re: Looking for beginner mandolin.

    My only thought would be unless you are truly enamored of a scroll, you will get much more "bang for your buck" if you buy an A-style versus an F-style. And enjoy whatever you choose - and you also...

    Re: Weber, the best years.

    I own a Bruce Weber Bitterrooot oval, a Collings MT, and a Pava Player, and the difference in tone is what I like about each of them - and the fit and finish on all of them is superb. I have no...

    Re: Who has thin bluechips?

    I Like TD 35 or TD 40 for mandolin and guitar, I play folk and classical mostly, but some bluegrass and Celtic music. I prefer the thinner picks in general.

    Re: A Review of SchneiderMusik - Caution

    I ordered some music from Germany (don't remember which company) but they shipped promptly and the order was correct. I paid by PayPal, so had there been a problem there would have been some recourse.

    Re: $200 to dress mandolin frets? Ouch!

    Two months old and it needs a new nut already, and a fret dressing? Do you play 20 hours/day? Wow!!! Or was the nut "off" from the start?

    Re: Mia Mandolins in Greenbrier, Arkansas.

    I like the Celtic A on the site, and at that price I don't see how you can go wrong (NFI.) Too bad I'm not in the market for another mandolin, although that doesn't stop me from looking.....

    Re: Did someone say PICKS?

    Now the price says $500. That's $0.03/pick. That's well worth it, even if his estimate of the actual number is wrong by a 100 or so. Thinking.....my PAS could be cured for the rest of my life! LOL!!!!

    Re: Did someone say PICKS?

    Man, I'm a slacker. I thought I had a lot of picks (and in my defense, PAS is WAY cheaper and picks are WAY easier to hide than mandolins.) I need to get looking at new picks again (although I really...
