    Re: Snark vs Korg chromatic tuner

    The high failure rate and inaccuracy of the Snarks (as also mentioned by previous posters) I owned drove me to find something else. I stumbled upon the Korg Sledgehammer Pro and never looked back. A...

    Re: In my never ending quest...diagnosis

    As others have said, pain means something is wrong. Rest will help heal the injury, but the pain may return because the cause of the pain has not been corrected. How to correct the problem depend on...

    Re: Bouzouki description on shipping labels

    How about octave mandolin? Bouzoukis can be seen as a long scale octave mandolin, so I think simply declaring it an OM would work.

    Re: Tailpiece for flat top Octave Mandolin

    I have a flat-topped Petersen OM on which I replaced the stamped tailpiece with an Allen TR-3.

    It is a easy switch as all...

    Re: Short mic stand?

    mcgroup53, I have been using a DR low profile stand for years for the same purpose you describe. It is a bit pricey, but the build quality is remarkably above the low cost stands. It had good weight...

    Re: It's official - ZOUK!

    Roger, I agree with you that trying to get everyone on board with calling an Irish bouzouki a long scale OM is not desirable, practical, or possible after so many years. That is what I call it too....

    Re: It's official - ZOUK!

    Allen, I agree with you 100%! Frankly, to the extend that idea, I am uncertain why a five course OM is called a cittern (which is really the name of a different instrument). Seven and eight string...

    Re: Disc Makers?

    I've used Disc Makers twice. No problems and on time. Just make certain the sound files and cover art are in the formats they require and everything will go smoothly.

    Re: Battery busking/session amp.

    Re: Finish safe straps

    Another vote for Lakota Leathers straps. Have had them continuously on a Petersen OM and a Taylor guitar (214) for at least 5 years with no ill effects. I use to use a Taylor Guitar leather strap...

    Re: Twin neck cbom

    Here is a novel solution: the roto-neck. I would think you could have two different scale lengths by placing the nut on each side at different positions and adjusting the frets accordingly.

    Re: Twin neck cbom

    There is another option for a double neck instrument that is not so wide, such as the guitar(s) that Thomas Bresh has. Anyone seen one like this built with mandolin family instruments?

    Re: Bouzouki & mandolin gig bag

    Like Allen, I carry my instruments (OM, banjo and guitar) in gig bags. However, the ones I use are not light weight, inexpensive gig bags. I use ones made by Reunion Blues (the older style, I like...

    Re: Trinity College mods follow-up?

    Found a slip of paper and it looks like I used 40 wound, 26 wound, 16 plain, 12 plain at some point. Think it is close and possibly what I finally settled on.
