    Re: Tips for fairly new Mando players

    I would think that it depends on what your definition is of "mastering" it is ! I will never master it but enjoying the ride !

    Re: We Honor Your Service

    I served in Vietnam which I strongly believe was a senseless war and what makes me sick is that there were over 40,000 deaths of US serviceman 22 years old and younger !

    Re: Kentucky KM-1050 vs Northfield F5S

    I would definitely take a Northfield over a Kentucky but in the same price range of the Northfield I would definitely take a Girouard over a Northfield ! No comparison in my mind !

    Re: Is my MAS dead?

    If you haven't played one , you should try a Girouard oval ! Played many at Gruhns in Nashville and I liked the workmanship and sound of a Girouard the best !

    Years ago played both at Gruhns and ordered an Ellis F5. Love my Ellis ! To my ears Ellis has the sound I like best . Another maker I would throw in the pot for you to consider is a Girouard !...

    Re: Who has thin bluechips?

    I have a BC 35 as recommended by Jill McCauley ! Love it on some songs but also use a tad 45 and less often a 55. 35 really shines for those triplets and when you want to play faster/quicker.

  16. Re: what strings do you recommend for a rigel mando ?

    I have used many brands of strings but I keep going back to GHS A270's on my A5 and F5 Ellis but I prefer Curt Mangan Bluegrass series on my Girouard oval. Not a fan of Monel strings .

    I don't feel my mandolins are loud but my wife from the audience tells me it is and I sometimes drown out the singers or other players so I am trying to keep volume down more !
