    Added "character"

    Caught myself tapping my pick on the mandolin during a practice break reading some threads on the Cafe. Left a few dents in the finish. Guess she's got some "character" now!

    Re: A useful tool for mandolin shopping

    I agree that sound clips/videos are an immensely useful tool when shopping. For many of us, traveling to demo an instrument just isn't possible. While most reputable shops (and even private sellers)...

    Re: Humidipak - WARNING

    So sorry to see this! Yet, also glad D'Addario is quick to serve their customers.
    I've been using Humidipaks for years in both guitar and mandolin cases. Haven't had any issues so far.

    Re: what Blue chip pick do you use.

    CT55. Had Wegen 140s (I think) when I lost the BC, but I had to go back. Just my preference for size, tone, and overall feel.

    Re: Kimble & Ellis - Thoughts

    Congrats on the new mandolin! I ordered mine new from Will (#220). I remember playing the first few notes and thinking, "Man, Will nailed the tone."

    Re: U.S. Trademark of Fern Inlay Awarded to Gibson

    And more competitively priced. Going with a custom build from a single luthier ended up being cheaper than ordering a comparable model through Gibson.

    Re: Other's Ferns

    Very interesting. Glad I got my Kimble Fern when I did!

    Begs the question though...is Gibson really going to pursue legal action again every maker that uses (or has used) both the Fern and F5...

    Re: Weight Relief for TONE GUARD

    I've never had issue with the weight. Just something I got used to quite easily.

    With regards to the CT video, I got to see #75316 up close after a show at the Largo in Los Angeles. It looked...

    Re: Standard J74 vs. EXP74 and new EXP74CM

    I love the EXP74CMs. Used to play J74s and wanted to give the mixed gauges a try. Don't think I'll be switching back. String life has been excellent, and they don't have the super slick feel like...

    Re: What Is Your Favorite Mandolin?

    Best I've played and own is my Kimble #220. Absolutely blows me away every time I open the case. Couldn't be happier that I pulled the trigger and ordered it. Two others that really stood out were...

    Very nice! Will's two-point design is incredibly classy. I'm absolutely loving my Kimble F5. That's quite the pair you've got. Happy playing!

    Re: Kimble #220

    Seems to open up a little bit more every day. Very subtle. The tone is crisp, clear, and even across the strings/up the fretboard. I jumped down from a 1-3/16" nut on my Breedlove to 1-1/16" on the...

    Re: Mandolin Album Thread

    While my exposure to the greater world of mandolin music is rather limited, I'm seriously digging "Bass & Mandolin" from Thile and Meyer. Stunning in so many ways.
