    I thought of trying that too, but unfortunately there is not as much selection for mandocello strings as there is for mandolin strings.
  9. Re: Third string out of tune below the fifth fret

    The nut is filed super low. I should have mentioned that this thing actually utilizes a zero fret so I don't think the nut actually affects intonation in that case.

    Re: Peghead Nation

    Just a word of caution here, yes, a firmer pick grip can deliver more sound, but it is going to hinder you down the road.

    Re: check out Billy Strings meeting his match

    Sierra is awesome and I'd say has the edge on Billy as a songwriter, but in terms of stage presence and the ability to melt faces it is really hard to get on Billy's level.

  23. Re: Played a Morris? Incredible. My Review of a Morris A4

    Hey Dan - thanks for posting.

    I noticed that you also have a Loar 600.
