    Re: Any new pedals for multi-instrumentalists?

    I just purchased the ToneDexter, and so far I'm really, really pleased. I've tired several pickups and three or four preamps, and nothing comes close. It has the capacity for 22 different wavemaps,...

    Re: Hoffee vs new Calton vs Pegasus vs ?

    Dang if you do, dang if you don’t. Sorry I couldn’t resist. A few years back I weighed my then new Hoffee, used Pegasus and found them about the same weight. I store my mandolins horizontally on...

    Re: Hoffee vs new Calton vs Pegasus vs ?

    I really like my Hoffee. It seals like a submarine, is secure like a fortress and is really classy looking. I've not seen others mention that the Hoffee has tiny shiny sparkles deep in the clear...

    Re: Hoffee vs new Calton vs Pegasus vs ?

    I think that they are all excellent cases. I went with the Hoffee. I think it is the most likely to survive being tossed out of a pickup doing 55mph. I have zero science to support that, but his...

    I have two caltons - one older Canadian one and one new Austin model. I also have a Presto and I can state that either of the Caltons is much better. The leather handle is uncomfortable, the...

    Re: Hoffee vs new Calton vs Pegasus vs ?

    I really like the look of the Pegasus case, but have never seen one in person. My son has a Canadian made Calton and it’s a workhorse that sees a lot of use. Great protection and provides peace of...

    Re: Hoffee vs new Calton vs Pegasus vs ?

    The Pegasus cases are as cool as they look, yes. They're all custom order for your preference of outside color and interior, either solid color or Tartan plaid. What I like the most about them is how...

    I have a Calton for a Lyon & Healy; fit is perfect. I have a Pegasus for Gibson F4 mandolin. Both cases are quite protective, pretty heavy, and more or less shaped, so storage is limited. A...
