    Re: I am on this board to learn!

    Re: David Grisman's Dawg pick

    What makes you take a stand such as this? Does a fiddler say such things about their bow? How about a metal guitarist? Do they say similar things about their pedals? How about a saxophonist? Do they...

    I am on this board to learn!

    If y'all wish to speak in half thoughts and codes and insider-collector shorthand, then I don't think I'm going to get much out of this place. And I really don't think many others will either. I'm...

    Re: Silverangel praise

    Do you mean to articulate a difference between this "Ken" guy and other builders. Are you implying something that would be made more clear by just telling us the back story? Or is everyone on this...

    As a long time lover and user of StrapLocks I have to say that I recently saw an advertisement for a new locking strap design by D'Addario that I thought ingenious and worth investigating. Sorry I...

    Re: Primetone

    I can't speak to the black Wegens, but the tonal differences between the white Wegens and the Primetones is quite significant to me. I'm surprised you don't mention it. I just recently switched away...

    I'm not convinced you actually know the qualities of Monel strings although you speak as though you do. Caveat emptor.

    I just received a set of NB1252BTs . That was really weird because I ordered a set of NB1152s, but they shipped me NB1252BTs. This is significant because I always would switch out my high "E" .11 for...
