  1. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    I bought an Eastman mandola several years ago. It's a decent instrument but I really have not done very much with it at all. I learned a few tunes and I have played it on I think ONE gig, ONE song....

    Re: XT D'Addario Mandolin Strings?

    I have played several sets of the Monels and i like them a lot. Unlike you, I haven't totally decided whether I like them better than the Martin monels or not yet. Maybe, but the Martins are half the...

    Re: XT D'Addario Mandolin Strings?

    I usually have an obnoxious chemical reaction with phosphor bronze strings generating a gross looking green crud from both hands.
    I wonder if this coating would help with that or not.

    Re: G(I) chop to 3 or 4-finger D(V) chop?

    A good chop can be achieved with really only the G and D strings. I'd call it maybe 92% of what you'll get by adding the A string to it and the E string is useless in a chop as far as the sound I...

    Re: What's up with USPS?

    I always have problems with someone ships via DHL because they hand off to USPS and it just seems to go into never land for a while.
    Lately I have had great luck with things that come directly...

    Re: A New Pick For Slick?

    Basically, the mandolin is a super bright instrument and can be almost "tinny" (in general, of course each instrument is different).
    Many (not all) players prefer to use a thick and more rounded...

    Re: A New Pick For Slick?

    Something else you may consider is trying out the more rounded corner of each of those picks as well. I think you may find a nice tone that way. Of course the definition of nicer tone varies with...

    Re: A New Pick For Slick?

    Try some Proplecs. About a buck a piece and you can order 12 and leave them all over the place so you don't have to worry about losing one lol.
    I used Blue Chips exclusively in a variety of shapes...
  12. Re: F5's from $3000-5000 worth considering - Sept '19

    I'll second both the Skip Kelley or any of the Northfield models. Definitely agree with Br1ck that they have very different voices, try them out!

    He changed the material of the rubber tubing to a clear. I think some people were having issues with the black before.

    Re: East Tennessee Blues

    The Thile Daves post is a Monroe tune, 2 different beasts.

    Back to E. TN Blues, I have always liked Wayne Benson's picking on it on the IIIrd Tyme Out Back at the Mac live cd.

    Great job Skip on...

    Re: Mandolins "Opening Up"

    I think the main thing to take away is that some people believe it and some don't, which is OK, but don't spend a ton of money on an instrument that you think might get better. It might, or might...

    saw them mentioned at Strings and Beyond but I stuck with my typical order instead. Sounds intriguing.
  17. Re: Mountain Song festival, is there any picking

    As a disclaimer I have not been in several years, but in all the years past I never saw any picking going on. The band guys have a private party sometimes if you're lucky enough to be invited there,...

    Red Diamond would be hard to pass up. Or take $7500 and buy a killer 4.0 Northfield and save the rest.

    Re: Notation Software?

    I have messed around with Musescore. There are a ton of youtube videos online that explain different features. I agree it's not all very intuitive to use.
