    Is anyone else having trouble placing an order through their site?

    I have had a problem in the past. I think I ended up calling them and doing the order over the phone.

    I am really kinda bewildered that the folks selling strings use a design featuring an unfinished mandolin with no strings. The guy in photo is smiling like "ha ha, get it?" and I am thinking, "well, no, not really".

    That is weird... I can't unsee the lack of tuners now. Crap, I liked the shirt before that.

    I think the drawing is from the one of the Siminoff plans to build a Mandolin. They also sell plans to build mandolins as well as strings.

    I get these guys mixed up with Strings and Beyond, who I really like for their free shipping for an over $35.00 order.

    That's kind of strange, since these guys make strings but do not sell them directly, while S&B sell strings directly but do not make them.

    You are correct. It is another company altogether. Just Strings.
