    Re: F style strap recommendation...

    I have a Sully's on my F5S, and a Little Satchel on the Kimble. The latter one is a lighter braided strap of kangaroo. The Sully's strap is a little heavier, bridle leather.

    Both are awesome,...

  11. Re: Hello All. I'm new here, first post. Loving the mandolin.

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld Strings

    Thanks - got a couple more sets of monels to work through, but I'll give them a try. I have used TI's on my bass guitar, and once I got used to the lower tension, they were great.

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld Strings
