    More love for Pomeroys

    Here’s my 2018 Violin Style A and a song called “Someday.” I find this instrument as much a pleasure to look at as it is to play. Unfortunately, this recording doesn’t do the mandolin the justice it...

    Well, dang. Now you've got me looking at the Pava. I do own a Pava Player I got from Carter's a few months ago. To tell the truth, it doesn't excite me much. It's turning into my wife's mandolin. (G)...

    Re: Waverly Tuners tight

    Try a little oil on the gears, Tri-Flow works great. I have seen techs use WD-40 but that is more of moister protectant. Singer sewing machine oil if you can find it works great also.

    Classic Grisman

    This is one of my favorite Grisman solos. Every note lands perfectly and his timing is just incredible. I guess that's what makes these guys pros!

  15. Re: looking to move, but I have no clue where ?.

    Do NOT move to Colorado, it is awful. Weather is terrible, people are miserable, music scene is lousy. The doctors are quacks. I am telling everyone I can to not move here.

    I wish you well.
