    Re: Guitarist looking for a Weber

    There is also a Weber Big Sky with cedar top on the classifieds just a little above your price. I have a Spruce top version of the Big Sky and I've found it very good in group settings and also...

    Re: Shopping in Nashville

    The good stuff at Gruhn's is kept upstairs and you have to ask to go. If you meet George Gruhn you will be there at least a couple of hours. It is so worth it.

    Re: Gibson and Hamlett Harmony!

    Thanks for doing a comparison. I think the Hamlett sounded great! Does John set them up for a 17 gauge A string or was that a change you made? Good job!

    Re: I'm amazed by the Tone Gard

    Does anyone use a tone gard with a mandolin with a varnish finish? I know if it never comes off then you won't see any marks, but the webpage doesn't recommend for a french polished instrument.

    I have an old pressed glass box like the one in the picture that belonged to my mother as a child. At home I keep several picks in it and a tuner battery or two. It's not a travel...
  7. Re: All of My 2020 Festivals Have Been Cancelled

    I just got the notice that the Moonshiner's Ball has been cancelled until 2021. It was the last festival around me to go (I'm not a performer) and it was also my last chance to see Sam Bush this...

    Re: Tailpieces

    John Hamlett (Sunburst on the forum) makes a nice one that is also unique. I'm sure you can find pictures of it if you want to search, but I don't have any.

    Re: Attention Silverangel owners

    I don't enjoy changing strings so I rarely do it before the strings start to exhibit some sort of problem. I put monels on my SA and they felt too "slinky". I ended up taking them off after a...

    Re: Solo builders

    I would put in a recommendation for John Hamlett. He worked on my Weber and had it sounding and playing better than ever before. While I was there he let me play one of his A models as well as one...
  12. Re: I put new strings on and positioned the bridge myself

    I knew a banjo player in high school (many moons ago) who would eat pizza before playing to grease up his fingers and fingerboard. To each his own. I clean and oil the fingerboard on a guitar after...

    Re: Kentucky KM-505 vs Loar LM-600

    I don't think you'll be disappointed. I bought the 505 from one of the previous posters in your thread. Even though I've gotten more expensive mandos now I can't seem to part with it. It is a...
  14. Re: Sirius Radio Replaced Bluegrass station 62 with 24/7 Dolly Pa

    Sirius XM took a channel that I loved (The Loft) to make it a temporary U2 channel. Then it became a temporary Billy Joel channel, then on and on. The Loft never came back. I haven't cancelled yet...

    Re: Tascam DR-05 vs Zoom H2N

    I bought the cheaper zoom H1n when it was the stupid deal of the day. I've only used it to record myself so far but I'm taking it to a jam tonight. They are dead simple to operate and a 32 gig card...

    When the guitarist is playing a guitar model named after him you know he will be slightly above average. Seriously, Eric is terrific.

    Re: Tone right

    I bought a used guitar tone rite and used it on a couple of acoustics before a string change. The strings were already killed so that wasn't a worry. It didn't seem to make enough difference to me...

    Re: Mike Compton changed my pick grip

    I've been trying to change to this style from the classical grip, but I feel like I lose some precision and control. I'm guessing with some practice I will adjust.

    I don't think so. I have one. I started with an ebay armrest that was too small and I like the larger size and the way it is sculpted.

    I'm not sure what you were expecting from a topic entitled "Silverangel praise" I don't mean any disrespect, Jeff.
