  1. Re: How is Tuning Drift with Rubner Tuning Machine

    That’s good info. Mine is a 2012. Is the accuracy because they turn so much easier? The current iteration Grovers are 18:1, while Rubners are 16:1. I don’t know what’s on mine. Do you think it...
  2. How is Tuning Drift with Rubner Tuning Machine

    Iíve got stock Groverís on a Weber Yellowstone. They turn without much effort. The mando just had a full setup, including nut slot adjustments. Iíve read a bunch and seen people saying their mandos...
  3. Re: G Strings on Nearly New Eastman 805V-2022 Model

    You’ve said you lowered the action. When you received it and the action was high how did they sound? I ask because there is a height at which a string will not yet buzz but it loses fullness and can...

    Re: Chord Shapes: Minor 7th

    Matt, did you take it down? I clicked the link 3 xs and it comes up with a 404 Error- nothing at this location.
  5. Re: Have y'all known this all along? (re: upstrokes)

    “ Can not get tone comparable to that of the other strings. Weak, unclear, no resonance.”
    I know you’ve had it set up, however, if you get clear notes on the A string, are no notes clear on the E?...

    Re: Dave Peters

    Thanks so much for posting this. I am new to mandos and simply live every single song. What a great player. What great players! Such a loss. Stellar album. Most enjoyable I’ve heard this far.

  7. Re: New player: a lot of pain in the knuckle of my left hand

    I will have issues with my thumb depending on where strap height holds an instrument. For me, if it’s up too high I’m ok while playing but suffer later as the inflammation begins. I can no longer...

    Re: Northfield Recurve or Hiscox?

    With a Tone guard the mando should fit ok in the Airloom. My Northfield F5 is very loose not having one. It is a firm shell case. Definitely not a hard shell. I don’t know anything about Hiscox but...
  11. Re: Who Has a Northfield F5-S with Airloom case?

    Thanks Mike. After reading Your response was the first time I felt all afternoon that I’m not crazy.
    Oh, I’ve got it now. It’s an AIR-loom. Plenty of air in there.
  12. Re: Who Has a Northfield F5-S with Airloom case?

    TMS said sometimes they are tight fitting some to not. Iím waiting a reply from Northfield. They sent me 3 videos explaining the fit. I replied with a letter. Their position thus far is that thatís...

    Re: The Harmonic Tone Revealers

    As someone new to mandolin can you tell which mando player is which? Since Reischman has the A style and Gilchrist the F would it be safe to assume the mellower mando is Reischman and the brighter...
  14. Re: Who Has a Northfield F5-S with Airloom case?

    Yes, I did call. Just waiting for the call back. Im sure they will be responsive.
  15. Re: Who Has a Northfield F5-S with Airloom case?

    Keith, thanks for the pics. They were helpful. I’ve attached pics of the same

  16. Northfield Big Mon with Airloom Recurve Dimensions?

    I bought a Northfield F5S. It came with an Airloom Recurve case whose padding is 1/2Ē too big. I am wondering if you own a Big Mon with Airloom Recurve if you wouldnít mind telling me the dimensions...
  17. Re: Who Has a Northfield F5-S with Airloom case?

    Hi Charley,
    It took me a bit to like it. I think it has more mid-range than the Bitterroot did, if I am recalling correctly. It’s not as mellow as the cedar was but it’s not jangley, so that’s...
  18. Re: Who Has a Northfield F5-S with Airloom case?

    It the standard F5S case. I’m wondering if it is a big Mon case, too.
  19. Who Has a Northfield F5-S with Airloom case?

    I received an new Northfield with an Airloom case. The fit inside is too big by 1/2Ē. So, it moves side to side and a bit head to tail piece, though the point cutout holds it fairly in place. The...

    Re: Wood Anatomy

    For what it’s worth, and I’m sure there will be disbelievers (I’d have hear for myself), 10 or more years back NPR had a segment on violin comparisons, new and old. A Strad is what was being tested....

    No. There were 2 pics sent to me. One was a defect in the binding or binding finish on the low side. The high side had a pic but it seemed like a finish flaw and was not in focus. James was...

    Yes, instruments enjoy being played. They stiffen up when not played and it doesn’t take to long for it to happen. The warm up time Depends on the instrument. I just picked up the Goodall first time...
