    Re: Mandolin with Best Bluegrass Chop

    If I'm not mistaken, most folks tend to buy mandolins for the lovely, woody tone that they can provide while playing a melodic lead, or while playing sustained chords or double-stops, and not for the...

    Re: Apollo Picks !

    Whether Apollo or other makers, I have had no problems with casein picks being particular fragile. Possibly very thin ones could be, but I play picks between 0.060" and 0.080" (1.5-2.0mm). IME they...

    Traditionally tipping the owner of a business is NOT customary. Tipping an owner used to be considered insulting. Yes, I realize the world has changed and respect is out the window.

    Re: Tipping a Luthier

    I would venture to guess that luthiers are seldom tipped for regular repair work. For that matter, you seldom tip a car mechanic, a plumber, or an appliance repairman. Not that offering extra money...

    Re: Tipping a Luthier

    As a luthier I can tell you that it is apparently not customary to tip a luthier. Once in a while someone pays me more than I ask for a repair, and even one or twice for a custom instrument, but it...

    Re: Tipping a Luthier

    I am not well to do. I assume my luthier charges me what he considers to be a reasonable fee. However, I'm all for those who have money sharing the wealth.
