    Re: Bravo D'Addario XS Strings!

    I have found them to be long lasting through some mighty hot and humid SC gigs. They are starting to show some wear after many months but still are staying in tune pretty well. They are past their...

    Re: Don Williams

    Nice oval hole sound on that mandolin. Don's music was always a bit of sanity in a crazy world.

    A room full of instruments is also a room full of sympathetic vibrations and overtones
  5. Re: NMD Ellis A4 Deluxe with Hummingbird inlay.

    I'd wait a minimum of 6 months for the varnish to set up. Don't use polish until then either. Wipe off the with a soft cloth. Just enjoy it now and add that stuff later.
  6. Re: NMD Ellis A4 Deluxe with Hummingbird inlay.

    The beauty of Ellis' work speaks for itself. They are the best IMHO.

    Re: What are you looking forward to?

    I'm looking forward father's memorial service where I will be able to see family members who have gotten 2 vaccines. We haven't seen each other in a long time. We will honor a man who did a lot for...

    Larger frets are the ticket on the Eastman mandolins. They really come to life.

    Re: Are Music Store Prices Firm?

    Guitar Center is not your normal music store. They are a highly leveraged corporate holding. The staff has no wiggle room. I would rather buy from a brick and mortar, mom and pop any day. Most would...

    Re: Am I seeing more A style mandolins?

    You can't judge the world of mandolins by bluegrass alone. F models may reign there but there is no need for the extra expense if all you want is good sound.
  16. Re: Tim Lerch on the last word on scales and modes...

    The thing he says that rings real true with me is, he doesn't know all of the answers. That is due to being steeped in the scales, chord arpeggios and modes to the point that they are just there for...

    Re: Please School Me On Mandolin Strings

    I like GHS but if you have a good mandolin it does not seem to matter. Some feel better and some sound better but what that will be for you is up to you.
