    Re: Northfield love

    Northfield still making the 4.0 models? Don't recall hearing about any owners talking about them.
  2. Re: A tuner shootout: TC Electronic Unitune vs. Peterson StroboCl

    Aaron,I agree with your assessments. I can use the Peterson ok but prefer the Unitune.PS,My first Unitune would eat a battery in a few uses. Sweetwater sent me a new one to replace it. Works great.

    Re: Cleaning Mold From Inside a Guitar?

    Nice job on the repair!

    Color me skeptical. Suicide or homicide? Maybe a thought for another angle to the song. Gotta love old-timey murder ballads ala "Dreadful Wind and Rain" or "The Willow...

    Good question.

    Why don't all builders put double side dots at the 12th fret?

    Re: Left-Handed Players

    Jimi Hendrix was naturally left handed. His father tried to force him to play righty. That didn't take.

    Now I want to get a left hander mando and string it up to play right handered just to mess...

    Re: The definitive mandolin Christmas recording list

    Listening to Butch's Evergreen is an uplifting thing for me. Then I put on The Travelers with Butch,John R. and Robin Bullock. Good stuff.(check out "Birdland Bounce" a Reischman composition!)

    Re: Dean Webb's F4..

    Not sure but looks like Webb is holding his pick backwards ala Reischman? Unique grip. Wears mandolin high. Ergo the headstock strap.

    Said his "favorite" mandolin was a 27 Fern. He sold it. Dang.

    Yes! Interiority.

    Dawg said,basically,that years ago. Play(not practice) until you develop your own unique sound/style.

    Re: Waverly Tuners tight

    Had new Waverly tuners installed on my 1993 Monroe Gibson F5. They are sticky/tight. I'm sure it is because of improper alignment/installation.

    I paid large to have an "expert" repairman install...

    Re: Opinion on nickel vs. gold aesthetics

    Silver plated hardware looks nice when it ages. You can polish it or not. I like it when the silver gets dark.

    On a '26 Fern I'd settle for worn gold. I guess. If I had to.

    Re: No more EXP74's?

    I won't miss the EXPs. XTs are very nice strings. Still sounded good after a month or so of daily playing.

    My hands and ears like Monels though. Hoping that Daddario Monels will come in custom...

    Re: D'addario String Comparison Video

    Just took off a set of XT Daddarios after about 2 months. They were still pretty good but I really prefer the feel and tone of Daddario Monels. I used the XT strings on two different F5 mandos and...
