    Re: Keep Rigel or learn on different instrument?

    It’s your mandolin now, you can do with it what you want. That great uncle would probably prefer that you modify it and play the snot out of it than stick it in a closet.

    I agree with those...
  4. Poll: Re: Poll: do use use a bevel edge or round edge pick?

    I donít consider myself a classical player, but I dabble a bit. Regardless of the style Iím playing I use 1.4 mm right hand beveled picks (BC CT-55 or Wegen TF 140), but my mandos presently are all...

    Re: New Girouard octave at The Music Emporium

    I played the one they had in house last August. I wanted it, but decided to sit on it until I was home in NC, as it had been there for a little while, and I needed to sell a couple of instruments...

    Re: Opinion: Wegen M150 vs Blue Chip CT55

    If I could only use one pick for the rest of my life, it would be the CT-55, but I really like Wegenís TF 140, and one of mandolins really likes the Wegen better. My hands always like the BC better,...

    Re: Newbie needs equipment advice
