  1. Re: MP3 page addition - Marla Fibish, The First Rain

    I am really enjoying this album. The tone from the Gibson is recorded extremely well. Excellent tune choices. Great playing! What's not to like? Thanks!
  2. Re: Changing hardware on Collings mandolin

    Collings end pins are glued in. Mask, use a high quality saw to take off the button, then *carefully* drill out the pin. I did it to put in a pickup.

    Re: Collings MT2 Review

    I am thrilled with my MT2-O. I did out a Brekke bridge on it, and like it quite a lot. It has opened up quite a bit in 18 months.

    Re: Ektarina Skliar playing Asturias

    Good catch on the thumb. I had not noticed that, more experienced players than I are a better resource. I rarely do that on guitar, and never on mandolin.

    Re: K&K vs Shertler Resocoil

    Try JJB -- I have on 2 mandolins and will be getting one for guitar soon. I have no financial interest. JJB pre-amp is also very good. Clean, with volume but no other controls.
