    Great read. Thanks, Mark!
  3. Re: Hello All. I'm new here, first post. Loving the mandolin.

    My journey has been very similar, and I think there are many on here who would say the same. Long time spent in the guitar/bass world, running low on inspiration, finding something that clicks with...

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld Strings

    Thanks - got a couple more sets of monels to work through, but I'll give them a try. I have used TI's on my bass guitar, and once I got used to the lower tension, they were great.

    How's the bass response? I've got D'A Monels on my F5S and like the way they sound in general, but the bass could use a bit more 'oomph.' I tried the D'A flats and liked the feel, but the sound was...

    Re: String recommendations

    My Eastman 315 seemed to really like the Siminoff Straight up sets. The E and A courses tended to have a bit much bite for my ears, and the Siminoff's had a great balance.

    Re: James tailpiece on a Northfield F5S?

    Just heard back from Derek of Northfield on this.

    The James tailpieces are way behind schedule in manufacturing and they don't expect more anytime soon.
    They are not a direct replacement -...

    Congrats! I think you chose wisely. Make sure the instrument is set up properly (either from the seller or from a shop).
