    I love my Pegasus cases;they have a nice deep,smooth finish. They scratch and chip easily; so,of course I use covers on them. After about 20 years of use they still look brand new. Almost.

    Re: Multi-Instrumentalist's Advice?

    Perhaps I'm not a virtuoso at any one particular instrument, but I think I'm for the better as a musician/composer on the whole for playing a wide variety. It's nice recording songs and being able to...

    Re: Counterfeit D'Addario Strings from Amazon

    No, no, not your fault. Lot of us buy from amazon but with the moniker of being the world's largest retailer online, some common sense responsibility comes with that. We shouldn't have to worry about...

    Re: Where do you purchase?

    I usually buy from JustStrings. They do charge $6.95 shipping. But I always buy enough sets of strings that the shipping is pretty minor. The order I just placed a couple of days ago was close to...

    Re: Play for free ...

    We never play for free, as it really screws other bands that may/may not need the money. Nothing worse than your local region being saturated with play-for-free bands/musicians.

    Re: Play for free ...

    I struggle with this in our band sometimes. We all have real jobs so we are certainly not in it for the money, but I have grown tired of playing for free unless it is for a good charity event. One...
  10. Re: Why do mandolin players hunch over their instruments?

    That's a pretty lame attempt at faking a themed thread - then turning it into a blatant promotion for gigs.

    Re: Someone kick me

    All things being equal, I think a small shop instrument allows you to have a relatively unique as well as quality instrument. Plus, cool. If you can afford a trip to Nashville or East Lansing, or...
  15. Re: Is the Era of Free Streaming Music Coming to an End?

    I am happy to pay for streaming services already. I don't need the clutter of more CDs (a format I never warmed up to--I was a big vinyl buyer back in the day.) I like the convenience of streaming,...

    There's an awful lot of speculation and misinformation in this thread, but also some pretty insightful speculation as well. I could probably write a book on the history of Weber mandolins, the sale...

    Gerry,
    I don't quite get your point. Bruce has opened a separate business from TOH and has an agreement with them to do all the warranty repairs. He also will do repair work on mandolins from other...
