    Re: Music Lesson Studio/Shopping List Help

    All I can say is as with any business, you need to adapt. Technology moves quickly, and mastering the technologies that can enhance your ability to serve a multitude of students is going to be key. ...
  2. Re: Dumb and petty complaint (Doyle Lawson F-5 content)

    The way we all should, by the feel and the sound. Everyone gets so caught up in the way things look. I've played some mighty pretty instruments that sounded like they were stuffed with cotton or...

    Re: Octave in the Mix

    I played in a band with a bass player who showed up with a six string bass one night. I thought that he and the guitar player would eventually kill each other that night.
    They were constantly in...
  5. Re: Gibson opposes Collings' headstock trademark registration, ci

    There are rules as to how this can be enforced, which require that a company defend their trademarks, and other intellectual property on a regular and frequent basis. But this is not about Gibson's...

    The patent is not for the pick.

    These are trademark patents, which can be seen here:

  7. Re: Gibson opposes Collings' headstock trademark registration, ci

    This is just part of the trademark process. It doesn’t mean their objection is going to “bear fruit”.
  8. Re: Playing a collings - what would an "upgrade" really get me?

    The loudest mandolin I own is a Collings MT2v with a carpathian spruce top. It is louder than the Duff F5 I had, with my torrified MT2v as a close second. I took it to a lesson the day after I...

    Re: Reverb announces increase in fees

    There are companies now who handle sales tax for small business. Again, you pay for this service, but at least you don’t have to open sales tax accounts for all 50 states. A lot of music stores are...

    Re: Reverb announces increase in fees

    There was a notice on the Reverb site last year when the deal was consummated. Etsy is an on-line selling website, publicly traded or not, and they obviously convinced their board that the purchase...

    Re: Reverb announces increase in fees

    Etsy now has to regain some of the funds they spent on Reverb.......they probably don't have a lot of people to lay off, so now it's got to come out of the seller's pockets. Some small shops have...
  13. Re: Gibson opposes Collings' headstock trademark registration, ci

    This is just part of the process in licensing a trademark. I’d have been surprised if they didn’t contest it, or any application from any other builders. It just seems to be their MO. However, I’m...

    Re: Hard Times Bluegrass Festival

    Re: Celtic Mandolin Builders

    Be careful with the Sobells. I’ve owned a few, and they all needed some sort of work, and not minor stuff. Non-working truss rods, splits between the fretboard and top at the neck joint, etc. I’ve...

    Re: Should Bryan Kimsey scallop my guitar?

    Consumer laws vary state to state. You’d be surprised at what some states have embedded in their commercial code to protect their citizens. I’ve learned one thing in life, never say never.

    Re: Should Bryan Kimsey scallop my guitar?

    I’ve seen some very poorly modified Martins over the last 25 years, done by a variety of well known individuals. Some with bubbled tops, swollen bellies, caved in tops, oversized bridges, etc. I...
