    Re: Rubner Tuners

    I put some on my Pomeroy whoo-buddy they are way better than the GE tuners. Smooth, smooth, smooth as an old caller friend used to say.

    Re: Woke with a chord question

    Re: Waxing the mandolin

    The only time I ever used wax it was Ren wax on a Tru oil neck on a banjo that stayed tacky many years after it was made. One quick light coat wiped on and off. Problem solved.

    Re: Tell me about Ibanez mandolins

    I'd enjoy what you have and save up for a much better mandolin. It will lift you up to another level when you play it and it fills you with a new joy from how it reacts to your playing. Your playing...

    Re: Vintage Gibson Playability

    Those mid teens Gibsons have the best sound. Play ability is quite good IMHO.

    Re: Bourgeois M5A Mandolin

    I only played one but talked to people who played more. They were alive, perhaps cut too thick? Nice workmanship but they never caught on.

    Re: Anyone busk with their mandolin?

    In Greenville SC you have to pay $50 to get the permit and $10 for a police background check. I never busk there, but prefer a local farmers market away from the city where we play tunes as kind of a...

    Re: he's at it again

    As I only dabble in jazz, I do like to shade the melody with various chord voicings even in old time music, or especially old time music in a small setting. You can roll the harmonic shape of the...

    Re: Pharis and Jason Romero

    Good vibe and Jason is playing that nouveau old time three finger banjo style that started with John Hartford. Each has their own take. John has been playing more old time and lifting the...

    Re: Kylie Kay Anderson

    That's a Dunder Mifflin cup next to her. She's alright by me. She also hints at some Rodney Miller fiddle licks with the doublestops in her low octave run.

    Re: No plectrum but fingerpicking only

    While stationed in the San Joaquin valley I met Kenny and played some with him. He sat his taterbug mandolin on his lap and used his index and middle fingers to play the mandolin, lending him a...

  20. Re: Weber Yellowstone vs Northfield Big Mon

    I read recently that Weber had been sold. So the new owners may come up with their own spin and a new sound. Just trying to muddy the waters here a bit.

    Poll: Re: Do you use a Tone Gard?

    I have not seen the need for a tone gard on anything but a mandolin. I started that back when I played wearing bib overalls in a band. Got used to it and find I don't notice it anymore. The ones for...

  24. New tuners to replace Golden Era tuners on a 2015 A mandolin

    I recently bought a used 2015 mandolin with Golden Era tuners. The tuners are very inconsistent and probably should be replaced. I loosened the screws in the gears to get them to move. Then used a...
  25. Re: Choice of Strings and picks for New Weber F4 ?

    I have a Weber Vintage oval hole and use medium phosphor bronze GHS on it and it sounds great. I tried Martin monels but they sound muted. I've had it for a while and it is a keeper for me.
