    Re: Allesi tuners

    I have a set on an octave that was commissioned a while back. They are wonderful tuners and feel they are worth the money. Very smooth and the engraving is elegant. I’m sure you can order them...

    Re: Best Armrest

    McClung armrests work for me and I wouldn't hesitate to order another one if needed. Give Doug’s website a gander if you’re interested.

    Re: My New Blevins Mandolin

    That’s a nice looking mandolin! The peg head is a nice departure from the standard F5 fare, and the colour theme is classy.
