  4. Re: ISO Recs for Bluegrass Mandolins in the $900-1.2K rang

    I have no financial interest, and I have not played one of these, but they are spoken highly of around here. This one caught my attention, but I have neither need nor budget for it. Seems like a...

    Re: Subscription Tutorial Sites

    I have used Peghead Nation only - Sharon's intermediate bluegrass course. I have learned a lot - the level is ok, and it is there when I feel like doing it. The only thing I think is missing on...

    Re: Dots or no dots

    They helped me with tuner replacements on my MT also.. as well as an issue with my case latch (they got the case replaced). In both cases, the items were not Collings manufactured, but they made...

    Re: Rigel pricing inquiry

    I sold my A+ deluxe more than 10 years ago for about $1200. I have looked around the web, and they seem to go between $1000 and $1500. I think $1200 is a good target. Much more, and you are...

    Re: Improvising

    Yes, THIS!! It ain't cheating to use the chord tones/positions as anchors for a break. Often the melody notes are in the chord tones, if not they are only a fret or 2 away from one. It really...

  18. Re: what strings do you recommend for a rigel mando ?

    I do not miss mine (A+deluxe). Ultimately it did not have just the sound I wanted. I'm much happier with the Collings sound.
