    Re: EastWOOD electric mandolin

    Yes, Aquila makes two sets of strings for fifths tuning on either acoustic Soprano (GDAE) or Concert (CDGA) ukeleles. I use the AQ30s on the banjolele and they make it a fun if not very practical...

    Re: EastWOOD electric mandolin

    Soprano Uke (like my banjolele) is more suited to GDAE. Tenor is better converted to a mandola (CGDA). Use a string tension calculator and grab either a cheap six-string electric set that has closest...

    Re: Sarah Jarosz on Austin City Limits

    Too bad I missed this (for now) if for no other reason than curiosity. Would be interesting to see if it was the same set as when I saw Sarah at Spoleto just this last Sunday. Her first live...

    Re: Pick thickness - how to choose?

    FYI, the infamous traveling pick sampler(s) is/are about to relaunch so keep an eye out for my announcement in the next few weeks. No better way to try out 100+ different types of picks for just the...

    Re: Where are the ' Big guys ' ?

    Stephen tried to propose a Model 1-for-pick sampler in-kind trade but he balked at spending the additional cash necessary to make it a fair value exchange. I couldn't wait for his next F5 to be...

    Re: Inexpensive solid body electrics

    Bought one of these in ivory about a year and a half ago for quiet late night jamming on an 8 string vs. my Mandobird IV. There's a lot to complain about it but perhaps the worst sin is the 9th fret...

    Re: Pick Samplers Still Circulating?

    The short answer is 'No'. They are not still circulating and haven't been since late 2019.

    The slightly longer answer is more positive. Both samplers are intact, in hand, and will be relaunched...

  10. Re: Anybody going/been to Alan Bibey Mandolin Camp?

    To complete a triumvirate of the usual AB Camp suspects on this forum, I too will be a returning 5th-year attendee. Wary? You bet, but Bibey has as good a plan for safety as can be had at the moment,...

  12. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    An interesting theoretical question, but you may be phrasing it from a slightly outdated view of the show. While in the beginning it certainly carried over much of its predecessor's basic form, as of...
  13. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    Just last month the term de jour was 'pretentious', and now it's 'smug'. At least y'all are consistent with the synonyms.

    We get it. Virtuosity ain't your bag, baby. That's fine, as the enjoyment...

    Re: Vulfpeck - Thile appearance

    Pretentious? Hmmm...If so, then he truly is a damned fool for thinking he's impressing anyone. It's like a much worse version of the unconscious chicken jig that's part of his live performances. I...

  16. Re: The Mighty Cozart! New 8 string electric

    Neck is pretty chunky but it doesn't really bother me and I usually prefer a thinner one. My thumb mostly rides the top of the neck so the shape is less of a factor than navigating the wide, flat...
