  1. Re: Phil Crump & Paddy Burgin OM's - your experience

    I have a 2001 Phil Crump OM III, and it is a really nice instrument. At 22 3/4", it is a bit of a stretch for my hands. It has something like a 4" + depth at the tail, and can be quite boom-ie, which...

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld Strings

    No, they do not. You would have to buy a custom set, emando.com has a set that is nice. A great alternative is to buy d'addario flatwound chrome steel single guitar strings in the gauges you need. ...

    Re: Irish tenor banjo

    When I went to pick it up, I was surprised that they were friction, but that makes sense on a cheaper instrument. What other options are there for replacements? Are the ABM ones pretty much the only...

    Re: Irish tenor banjo

    So proud of myself, I got initiated into the banjo maintenance fraternity. My thumbs are sore, but I am better for it.

    Re: Irish tenor banjo

    Re: Irish tenor banjo

    Thanks again all, all this advice really helped me in my search. I went with a less expensive older Vega that I think I will be happy with. I have a line on a Vega Style N for a great price, picking...

    Re: Irish tenor banjo

    Regarding the desire for a 17 fret, I have a 22 3/4" OM that is really nice, but the fingering is tough for me. I have had a 20" OM, and wasn't happy with it, or the sound of the european octaves (17...

    Re: Flat Wound Strings = Noisy Mandolin

    I love flatwounds, I had Max setup my Girouard A build for Thomastik heavy flatwounds.

    The information you gave doesn't tell the entire store, what type of flatwounds, what gauges? I know that...
  11. Re: Thoughts on starter fiddles/transitioning to fiddle

    I just took this step myself, and decided on buying a used, old fiddle.

    I have a violin shop down the street, and a well known one a city over, and have inquired about starting violins. While the...

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld string weights

    sb-

    I'd be hesitant to put thomastiks on a pac rim f style mandolin. They may not be a good fit, might not be able to drive the top.

    First, I am a Thomastik user, I have them on my mandolin....

    Re: Opinion on nickel vs. gold aesthetics

    I prefer a brushed nickel finish.

    I do have to add that I specified EVO gold frets on my Girouard build, which has brushed nickel hardware. I think it blends in well, it has an engraved James...

    Is this a good deal?

    Saw 4 banjo books in the classifieds, 24$ shipped.

    Do you think this is a good deal, or should I ask the person to send me 30$ to take them?

    Re: Mandolins "Opening Up"

    I am of the opinion that it is more of the person driving the instrument that opens up to the instrument (like 80/20). But yes, this topic is like flogging a horse that may be dead, is trotting to...
