    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: Pick Samplers Still Circulating?

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

  7. 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    An interesting theoretical question, but you may be phrasing it from a slightly outdated view of the show.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...

  10. Re: Cigar Humidor Discs for in-case humidification??

    Hi Slim,

    In theory they would work, but the propylene glycol solution that is normally used for cigars pumps out moisture around 72% Relative Humidity, which is too high for the recommended 45-50%...
  11. Re: The Mighty Cozart! New 8 string electric

  12. Re: help me out, how to do vibrato on a 4 string

    During your search, one thing to keep in mind is that by definition vibrato is achieved by modulating the pitch of a note. The most common manual techniques for achieving this on a steel string...
  13. Re: The Traveling Pick Sampler - Anyone Interested?


    I've looked because like you I think it's a great pick and would like to have one, but I can't find that particular pick in stock online anywhere and don't even know the model. But, since...

    Re: Sam Bush rocks out on E-Mando

    Awesome. Great sounding band and certain to polarize as is Sam's wont. He pulls some fantastic tone from that Mandocaster (would love a detailed rig rundown) and his wah-wah-filled solo at the end...
