  1. Re: Tale of the Burgin and the Phoenix

    Cograts Tim. I'm jealous. Sure would like to have a Phoenix Neoclassical or Jazz in my arsenal. Not sure what I would give up. Perhaps my Mandola that gets minimal use but does provide enjoyment from...

    Re: Strings Question

    I have no advice to offer as over the years I have not been very adventurous with string experimentation always having used D'Addario Mebium PBs. I have been watching this thread as I only recently...

    Re: Feedback on a magnetic pickup

    INTERESTING! I must assume this to apply to guitars as well, does it not?
  4. Poll: Re: Solid Wood Acoustic Environment/Storage

    Agree with advice received thus far. But want to suggest the purchase of a modest priced but quality instrument that won’t be a huge financial loss if it should get ruined. I. e. a used Eastman 305,...

    Just read "MANDOLIN PRICING"

    This has answered a few questions I have been asking myself for sometime. Having never played a $6 figure mandolin I have always wondered if the price is justified on playability or historical...

    Re: compared to a Weber mandolin.

    Neither would I. I have found the Weber Gallatin mandolin and mandolas to compare tone wise with any of the upscale Webers, though minus the bling. at least so with the Bruce Weber models. Can't...

  17. Re: My Tone Gard review. Get one for your mandolin

    Lots of comments.
    My own experience: Beneficial on some mandolins but not on all. I experienced no benefit on my Stiver or on a previously owned Collings. I do use one on my Kentucky KM- 950 where...
  18. Re: What's the best way to dust my fretboard?

    I often see recommendations for keeping our instruments in their cases. Maybe ideal but not always convenient. I may only play 10 to 15 minutes at a time but probably do this 10 to 20 times a day. ...

    Re: Clip On Tuners / What Cha Got ?

    Try a KLIQ. You must hold the on/off button a little longer to turn on or off than other clip-ons I have used. However, they are built rugged enough to not require careful handling. I have yet to...

    Almost any pub you may find live music and a grateful appreciative audience if you play (regardless of genre). Got to love it there in spite of the weather.
