    Re: Sierra Hull tour

    Hmm.. tie between “Middle of the Woods” and “How Long”... I’m also really liking “Escape”, it’s so moody + ethereal.

    There are a bunch of legitimately awesome songs.... can’t say that about too...

    Re: Sierra Hull tour

    I just saw her on Saturday night in Pittsburgh ... it was nothing short of incredible.

    The musicianship was just over the top...it’s a four piece band: Sierra on mandolin family instruments and...

    Re: Is Baby Ben a traditional tune?

    I play in an old-time fiddle group in Pittsburgh and we just started playing one of James Bryan’s tunes, “Farewell Trion”.

    If you like Baby Ben, you’ll probably like Farewell Trion as well...

    Re: Tenor String Set for GDAE

    The John Pearse set got a few mentions in past threads.... I assume they are a solid choice for GDAE.

    Tenor String Set for GDAE

    Hi,
    I have a Blueridge BR 40t that I want to string GDAE.... I know this question has been brought up before ( I looked up the old threads) but I would greatly appreciate some current advice on...

    Re: Northfield Recurve case failure

    Fair enough, no argument... Just to clarify why this thread bothers me: In Pete’s case, it actually happened to him. In this case, we’re discussing an unsubstantiated report from social media- it...

    Re: Northfield Recurve case failure

    Seems unfair to Northfield to post this without more information.

    I see a picture with one broken latch. This wouldn’t cause a mandolin to fall out of a case; I’m sure we’ve all bumped a latch...

    I’ve owned a Collings MT and MF... and a Nashville Flatiron Festival F

    The Flatiron was a better overall mandolin, no question... it had the Gibson sound. It also had a strong G string and a...

    Re: my bowl-back mandolin

    I sold a similar bowlback here on the cafe last month. I listed it for $250 and got no replies. I tried again at $150 (including shipping) and it sold in about a week. I think you could get $150-$250...

    Last time my pickguard fell off of the pins, I put a small drop of CA glue (superglue) on each pin and let it creep down the pins. After letting the glue dry completely, I pushed the pickguard back...

    I love hearing Jesse play his Stiver. It has a rosewood back and the sound is really one of a kind. I’ve played the other rosewood F5 that Lou made at the time, one of my friends owns it. It was...
