    Re: Take Your Pick

    Mine arrived today, having left Italy Monday. They are speedy. I think I will like them, although they do have a different feel and will take a bit of getting used to.

    Re: Mahler 7 Tonight (7/7/20)

    Another classic example of this is Peter Maxwell Davies' An Orkney Wedding With Sunrise where the solo violinist is supposed to sound drunk. It's a great piece, though....

    Re: Looking at Japanese bowl back

    I just got back from looking at it. It seems to be in good shape and had a sweet tone despite being way out of tune, but there are a couple of cracks on the top. Most likely a deal-breaker. I have a...

    Re: Looking at Japanese bowl back

    ". . . neck like a Louisville Slugger" huh? Not what I would have expected! These are screen shots of the images he had in the ad.

    Looking at Japanese bowl back

    Made the mistake of looking at the local Craigslist today and saw a bowl back. The seller says it was a gift, doesn't play, knows nothing much about it.

    I am 95% sure it is a Suzuki M215. Rosewood...

    Re: Just an observation

    The occasional sales don't bother me, and I find it gracious of them to extend a 30% discount during the pandemic.

    Was anyone able to actually set up an account with them? They never sent me the authorization code to register an account, but wouldn't let me...
  10. Re: Lyon & Healy Model A rebuild or for parts

    Tim, it's what the auction house charges you for the privilege of buying from them. The seller gets the auction price, the house gets the 25%.

    Happy trails, Mark. As my grandfather always said, keep it between the fenceposts.

    I think a dose of the vaccine comes with the Northfield. Look in the accessories compartment.

    Congratulations on the 25 years of sobriety—that's a huge deal.

    Re: Take Your Pick

    Thanks for the photo! Great way to compare.

    My Dogals are 3s. They say they are .78mm, but they feel so much more flexible than the .73mm Ultex with the rhino. Different material, different shape,...

    That's exactly what I was looking at doing—trying a package of both the medium and heavy. €15 is ridiculous for shipping €7 of product, but the exchange rate is better right now than I have ever...
