    Re: Monel strings

    Are there any long-time users of monel wrapped strings here? I've found that i prefer the sound of monel over phosphor/bronze. It seems slightly warmer, less zingy.

    Re: Andy Statman's Jazz Mandolin series

    I think Improvising Jazz is a good place to start.

    I compared my new Mike Black A5 to a friend's 25 year old Gilchrist F5. This has to sound like hyperbole, I know, but we both preferred the Black.
