    Re: Flatiron N1 vs K2

    Thanks Fatt-dad. It seems I have caught the "pancake bug". I have gone through the "LARGE" file on the Flatiron pancakes and enjoyed it all. I have the 1N and its case is a square one with only...

    Re: Speed

    Just a comment. I have noticed in myself that when I play with the most speed it catches me by surprise. That means to me, that the ability to play fast is a product of being unaware and relaxed. ...

  12. Re: Lose grip on a thick pick or use a thin pick?

    Thank you all so much for your thoughts and input. I am now using a BC TAD 80 and love the sound it produces. I, probably, will never be very fast because I just don't have the "fast twitch"...
  13. Lose grip on a thick pick or use a thin pick?

    I have one coming and am wondering about the tailpiece. The descriptions say stamped but in talking with the Mandolin Store, they assure me it is cast. If so, what would be a worthwhile reason to...

    Well, the deal on the Breedlove fell through thanks to the USPS. But it may come back up so be on the look out! They, IMO, are very scarce on the sell scene.

    Do many of you used GDAD for chording/strumming as well as playing melodies? If so, why? Do you also tune your octave mandolins the same way?
