    Re: Butch Baldassari Tunes

    Great job Don!

    I have yet to learn any of Butch's original tunes, but one of my first instructional aides was Butch's "Bluegrass Mandolin Workshop" DVD. It really got me off on the right foot I...
  2. Re: Thoughts - Northfield Artist Series Engelmann Five Bar

    I think I have only played one of the 5-bar variety so I'm not necessarily qualified to say, but I do have the Tura DLX case and absolutely love it!
    I suspect your 5 bar w/ Engelmann will have an...
  3. Re: Northfield Mandolins - Big Mon vs Artist

    I have a 4th Gen and an F5S. Absolutely love them both for different reasons. The F5S is Engelmann so that makes it a nice change of pace, but it doesn't hold up in a loud jam as well.

    The couple...
  4. Re: New OM day, and some questions about others

    I had an Eastman MDA815 mandola for a while. It was beautiful in looks, but left me wishing for a better sound. I wound up just selling it because I played it very rarely.

    Have purchased all 3 rounds of this. Just amazing! I bought a mandocello, and so far have not done much with it, but listening to these definitely inspires me with the possibilities.

    Re: Northfiled Ox stand for guitar?

    Do you have yours sitting on a hard surface or carpet? I have been interested in the stand for the beautiful look of it, but my music room is carpeted and I'm not sure how sturdy it might be.
  9. Re: Why are some songs not written in the key they are in?

    Maybe to emphasize the fact that those C notes should be C# in the key of A. Maybe because "Glen Allen" didn't know how to change the key on the software and Mike didn't have time to redo it.

    Can't help but think of the great scene in Christmas Vacation. "Retooling, that's a great excuse. Retooling? I'll retool you!"

    Shipping sure has gotten expensive everywhere. I am amazed you can ship it in the US for $5.

    Enjoying it so far, nicely done Maddie! Also note that they are only asking $1 on Bandcamp, but you can put in a higher amount if you feel inclined.
  14. Re: Northfield (& Beyond) Dilemma: A5 Special vs NF-F5S/NF-F2S

    Congrats on your new purchase! I have a blonde F5S w/ Engelmann and really love the sound of it. That tailpiece is a nice upgrade too, did that on mine as well. The standard one is a pain for...
  15. Re: "Shine" (Collective Soul), Sierra Hull and band

    We saw Sierra and Lindsay this week in High Point, NC and they closed with Shine. It was pretty cool and the crowd dug it.

    Re: Should I Resist Waverly Tuners?

    I really like my Waverly tuners, but they came on the 4th Gen. I'm not however planning to upgrade my F5S from the Gotohs. There is a noticeable difference, but I'm not sure I'd be happy with the...

    It's basically just tab, but written horizontally instead of how it really should be vertically.
    Perpendicular tab? Chord tab?

    Re: Monel strings - what to do, what to do?

    I only have f hole mandolins. In my experience I preferred both Cut Mangan and D'addario monels over the Martins. Of course the Martins are the cheapest.
