    Re: A model case for old Gibson

    I've posted this here in the past, but a Reunion Blues Continental Tenor Ukulele bag is affordable and great protection. I've seen them as cheap as $70 recently on Reverb. Salem music has a Reunion...

    Re: Mando Store to try before I buy?

    Wow, I have been to Acoustic Music Works many times. I have never had that experience. Helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. This has been whether I have been buying or browsing. Steve even sold a...

    Re: Mother Maybelle's pick

    I'm not sure how Mother Maybelle utilized the Stevens pick. The Clawjam pick is how I envisioned utilizing a longer "pick" part. Folding it over the end of the finger allows for the alternating...

    Re: Do you carry your own Microphone?

    I always carry my own mics, for previously mentioned reason of consistency not necessarily quality. If there is phantom power available, I always use an Audio Technica Pro37. Although I almost...
  8. Re: Noam Pikelny, making banjo attractive again...

    I've been fortunate to see the Punch Brothers a couple of times and Noam's solo shows in Pittsburgh for both his "One man, One Banjo" and "Universal Favorite" solo tours. I believe he said that...

    Jstring...you beat me to it. Looks like we pretty much agree! The Old Time jam at Hambones occasionally has a "slow jam" for beginners on the first Sunday of the month prior to the "regular" jam. ...

  12. Re: Tonedexter - neat new DI/pre for acoustic instruments

    Hi James,

    I sent you an email. Is there one on your site? At least I didn't see it anyway. The suggestions I would have would be for a combi-jack for use of high end outboard mic pre-amps...
  13. Re: Any experience with Smoky Mountain Guitars?

    I visited Smokey Mountain Guitars when my wife and I went to Gatlinburg for our 20th anniversary. The owner was very nice when I was there and pulled out some Altmans for me to try (as a Bourgeois...
  14. Re: Dont Know If Im Strong Enough To Talk About This Yet

    Hey Mr. Mando, I hope your assessment only includes acoustic instruments. I was looking for a "birth year" guitar (1967), but found I really wanted an older Les Paul. Since they weren't officially...
  15. RE: "Hide your checkbook - Collings Custom Gallery"

    Hey All,

    I like to check this gallery out every once in a while, because I own the first mandolin featured in the gallery. Collings MT2O #3219. Steve Miklas and I asked Collings about making...

    Re: Gravity and mando case surprise...

    This is the link to a post I had about this 5 years ago (post #10). Steve Miklas @ AMW in Pgh and I figured out that the tenor uke case was a MUCH better fit for an "A" style mandolin than their...

    Re: Gravity and mando case surprise...

    Well, that is exactly why I have and really like my Reunion Blues Continental gig bag. In that scenario, it very likely would have allowed the mando to survive unscathed...and the case would have...
  18. Re: David Grisman Sextet at the Pittsburgh Arts Festival June 4th

    Also, this should probably have it's own thread, but Sierra Hull is playing at the Summers Best Music Festival in State College, PA this weekend as well. I wonder if I could hit both in one day. ...

    Re: Octave divider recs?

    Hey Mandocrucian,

    I really like the Electro-Harmonix Micro POG or Nano POG. You would have to find a used one because they are about double your requested budget new. The Boss OC-2 or OC-3 are...
  24. Re: The Traveling Pick Sampler - Anyone Interested?

    Timbofood,

    I sent the envelope along with it, along with more crappy handwriting! I wonder if we should re-visit the slotted envelope and hold the picks in place with painter's tape. It...

    Hey 3rdegree,

    See post 65, when I originally sent out the pic sampler. I shipped it in that tackle box, in a USPS bubble envelope for $3.00. It could have been re-used multiple times before a...
