    Re: Bravo D'Addario XS Strings!

    Re: Wegen vs. Primetone vs. Clown Barf

    I think there is more difference for the player. I don't hear any glaring differences in my speakers. It is a very good sounding mandolin regardless of the pick. I might like the clown barf at least...

    He was a good one for sure. Saw him a couple of times and one time John Prine stopped in and and joined him on stage as he had just played a gig down the road. Jethro died young at 68. Oh my.

  15. 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.

    Re: Kentucky KM-1500 (Amazing Deal)

    I heard a wicked good sounding Kentucky the other week at a gig I played. I thought it was something other than Kentucky but when I saw it I was wrong, it sounded great.
