  1. Re: Northfield Mandolins "Deluxe Airloom" fiberglass Cases

    Ok, thanks for the information. I rarely lock my case, but there have been times, like leaving my instrument unattended after a gig, where it would be nice to have keys.
  2. Re: Northfield Mandolins "Deluxe Airloom" fiberglass Cases

    Hey all,

    I have a call in to Peter, but I may get a quick answer here. I just received my Airloom case and I can't find any keys for the latches. Did your cases come with keys?

    Thanks,

    Tal

    Re: Handel replicas - Thank you Mike Blohm

    I almost bought a set of those several years ago for my mandolin. They sure look great. Congratulations.

  4. Re: The definitive mandolin Christmas recording list

    I don't think anyone has added Wyatt Rice and Rickie Simpkin's "New Acoustic Christmas." There is some great mando playing on these arrangements.

    Re: Wegen Bluegrass Pick

    The Wegen picks are great picks, but I have found that figuring out the shape of pick you like first could save you quite a bit of money down the road. Rather than spending the money on a Wegen or a...

    Re: Deal I found on Hiscox Pro-II Case

    Wow, great score! I just bought the same case about a month ago for $100 more and I still feel like it was a great deal.

    Congrats!

    Re: Guitar and Mandolin Duos

    I think this is out of print on CD. It looks like there are used albums out there for sale. I downloaded my copy at iTunes.

    Re: iPhone Apps for Basic Recording

    I just started using RODE rec, the free version. I downloaded it to use with a Mikey mic that I recently purchased, but I'm sure you can simply use the phone's mic.

    Zookplayer,

    Right after I posted my reply I noticed that there is a really nice fiberglass case in the classifieds. My friend has this case and she is really pleased with it.
