    Re: Pegasus Cases ??

    The latches could be better. Some rubber around the edges would add a bit of moisture protection and neither should contribute significantly to the cost. Other than that, I wouldn't change anything.

    Re: Pegasus Cases ??

    I own one and really like it. It's strong and protects well. The thing I like best is the amount of accessories I can easily fit in the case. Right now I have a K&K preamp, a condensor mic, a...

    Re: I'm a victim of pick goblins

    The sad truth is it's nothing more than carelessness. I have friends that complain about it all the time. When we play together I watch what they do with their picks and guess what? I'm the only one...

    Re: Joe Stuart and the Thompson Mandolin

    I was recently listening to an live show by Monroe. Unknown date and location but the band was Monroe Fields on bass, Jack Hicks on banjo, Kenny Baker and Joe Stuart. I've always known he was a great...

    Re: Just have to brag!

    Language is an ever-evolving thing. Usages fall out of favour. There are thousands of examples. Diction is overwhelmingly thought of as speech in contemporary times. Lots of dictionaries are out of...

    Re: Just have to brag!

    Where's the negativity? The "all this" comes from those rushing to defend the supposedly maligned OP, who was left completely unscathed, BTW. Making a casual remark about the use of a certain word is...

    Re: Just have to brag!

    Diction is how something is pronounced, so you're a bit off the mark there.

    Maybe some folks think bragging is polite. As I understand it, bragging is kind of a rude thing to do. One's...

    Not trying to "start" anything. My thought on reading this thread was that it was an odd use of the word "brag" and expressed that thought. Unfortunately, there are people such as yourself who have...

    Re: Wd-40

    What I heard him say is that he uses it to deal with sticky strings from humidity changes, not to prolong string life. He did mention he used to put a new set on before every show, so I don't think...

    Oh. Is that something you "brag" about?

    Re: Michael Kelly

    I'll just cut right to the chase. My favourites in that price range are the Kentucky 350S or the 380S.

    "Rocky Top" not so much but definitely "Dueling Banjos" and "Foggy Mtn. Breakdown". The one I hated the most though was "Fox On The Run". Maybe just a Canadian thing but we got asked for that song...

    For oldtime music, and for Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, the film did quite a bit. For bluegrass, not so much. Ralph Stanley might have benefitted more but he was already nearing the end of his...
