    Re: Case weights

    I have a couple scales I use for sending packages to the post office and when comparing the couple cases we have in common I think your luggage scale is pretty accurate. My Collings A style case...
  2. Re: Yet another Thomastik-Infield string question

  4. Re: Yet another Thomastik-Infield string question

    After using the mettle/mediums for years I just order the heavy/stark to give them a try.

    Re: Mandolin case comparison (for A-models)

    I like the Superior case too, not made to be a flight case but has plenty of protection for everything else and at four and a half pounds it’s light. I also have the Collings TKL case, it’s nice but...

    Re: TI bridge compensation
