    Re: Vulfpeck - Thile appearance

    It seems the theatrics are part and parcel of Vulfpeck’s schtick...people having fun for fun’s sake...imagine that. Such gall to not treat every piece of music as if it were Barber’s Adagio for...

    Re: Classic Grisman

    I love Dawg’s take on “hardcore” bluegrass. Songs like this and albums like Home Is Where The Heart Is, Bluegrass Reunion...awesome stuff. For my money it’s the perfect, if there is such a thing, mix...

    It’s the same with any hobby...be it (for me) fly fishing, fountain pens or watches...you come across a new interest, learn a lot and buy a lot of new stuff (the Internet is all to happy to help you...

    Re: Chris Thile does Bill Monroe

    C'mon now. That break by Bill in the first video is blazing fast and as full of notes as Chris' version...it's no different. If Compton played it like that it'd be hailed as genius rather than the...

    Re: Changing tuners

    Just a follow up, and thanks to all the replies: I got a set of Grover 309's from stewmac and it was super easy to install them. The existing screw holes lined up but had to drill 2 new holes on each...

    Having some issues with the tuners (seem to be Ping/Golden Age) on my BRW 2 pointer and am looking into upgrading. I'm handy with tools but not a luthier by ANY stretch of the imagination.

    Re: D'Addario - Seeking Mandolin Beta Testers

    George I agree. I've had my set on for a few days and I like them more than I expected but the G sounds less substantial compared to the others. Perhaps not as cutting as PB...almost like the Bush...
