  1. Re: Want flat fretboard, at least 1 1/8" nut width. Suggestions?

    Some of the older Weber mandolins would fit the bill.

    Re: How thick of a pick?

    Blue Chip TPR35's for me, so .89mm - I only play Irish trad music, so prefer not too heavy of a pick and the TPR35 seems to be the sweet spot. I've tried TPR40's (1.0mm), like the tone I get with...
  7. Re: Your thoughts on Ellis A4s and other modern, upper tier ovals

    Yes, mine is a port orford cedar top with a transverse brace!
  8. Re: We have a 3-way race: Collings vs Pava vs Gilchrist

    Oh, well done! I got the chance to play a Model 1 several years ago and it was an amazing instrument - practically played itself!
  9. Re: Your thoughts on Ellis A4s and other modern, upper tier ovals

    I really liked my Collings MT-O....until I played a Girouard oval A - emailed Max the very next day to place an order! One year on since taking delivery and I am still head over heels for my...

    I use Music Memos for audio capture and have been quite happy with it. The other app I like a lot is "Loop2Learn", which let's you slow down and loop segments of Youtube videos - I know there's a...

    Re: Should I be insulted?

    Using my example of Stella/Mandolin Hating Dog - I played Irish trad music exclusively on the fiddle, mandolin, tenor banjo and tenor guitar:

    She DESPISED the fiddle
    She hated the mandolin

    Re: Lightweight Octave Mandolin Cases

    Glenn Cronkhite is who you're thinking of: https://glenncronkhite.com

    He made a great case for an old Bacon & Day Silver Bell tenor banjo that I had years ago.

    Re: Home Recording - best bang for buck

    The Spire Studio is easy to use, allows multi-tracking, minimal set up - had one for awhile and quite liked it, but sold it because I was clearing stuff out due to an impending move back to Ireland.
  17. Re: New to playing Celtic music but I see its big locally

    If you're listening to tenor banjo players add these folks to the list: Angela Usher, Angelina Carberry, Theresa O'Grady, Pauline Conneely, Shane Mulchrone, Páraic MacDonnchadha, oh, and Mick Moloney...
  18. Re: Irish trad musicians that use Blue Chip TAD 40 pick

    I find the TPR35 too heavy for tenor banjo playing. I use either Janicek .60mm picks or Dunlop MaxGrip .60mm for tenor banjo. I did find a company called Charmed Life Picks that used to make lighter...
  19. Re: Irish trad musicians that use Blue Chip TAD 40 pick

    I tried a TPR40 without speed bevel for awhile but then switched back to my preferred TPR35 with speed bevel, I really liked the tone without the bevel but find my playing is smoother with the bevel.

    Re: "WeberPhiles"....Help

    I had a 2008 Weber Vintage A for a few months about 9 years ago, so it was one of the ones with the "secret stash" tone wood (had to sell it when I lost my job suddenly). It was a different animal...
