    Re: Rubner and Kimble

    Good deal, looks great. If mine hadn't come with Waverlys I'd probably do the same. I have Rubners on a mando and they're excellent as well.

    Re: What strings have you tried on your Kimble?

    I don't experiment much with strings. I used J74's on my mandolins for years, then got a free set of Straight Up Strings, and have used them ever since. Like them a lot.

    Jesper-

    That was excellent and fun, and as others have said, inspirational. I think I learned something from just watching once, although there was so much going on, yet it looked so fluid, that...

    Re: Michael Nesmith RIP

    Sad news, condolences to his family. "Some of Shelly's Blues" and so many more greats. He touched many with his art.

    Re: favorite festival tent?

    i highly recommend the REI Grand Hut 4 for what you describe, and always get a tent sized a person or two from what you expect to use if for. From my experience, like serving sizes on food packages,...

    Re: Finish impact on resonance?

    Well, I suspect there'll be a bunch of replies here, so I'll start by saying mandolins with many finishes, probably tot spit too, can sound good. But generally nitrocellulose may not be quite as...

    Re: Please School Me On Mandolin Strings

    Welcome to the forum.

    I don't tend to change strings much but learn here on the forum a lot about the different alternatives.

    I used J74's a long time, then a couple years ago switched to...

    Thanks for sending that along. Really enjoyed your singing and playing. And your Ruhland sounds fabulous. Bell-like. Great sounding guitar too.

    Re: Me and Bobby McGee

    Corbin, really great editing and playing. Really enjoyed your vocal arrangement and singing too. Interesting, tasteful and true to the song.
  12. Re: David Grisman - 'Home is Where the Heart is'

    Not to mention Herb Pedersen, one of my all time favorite harmony singers and banjo players. The whole band, material, mixing, energy. Just stellar.
  13. Re: David Grisman - 'Home is Where the Heart is'

    Correction to my earlier post, the album is "Here Today."

    Sheesh. . .
  14. Re: David Grisman - 'Home is Where the Heart is'

    Yeah, this is such a classic CD set.

    Another classic of that general time is "Home Today." One of my all time favorite bluegrass albums.

    We're in a golden age of luthery. I think these are all fine open backs, roughly in the same price range, maybe with Pisgah and Rickard (generally) slightly less. But you probably know all this....

    Re: Dreaming of a Great A5 under $6000

    I'd recommend Kimble as well, and Ruhland. I don't know what Matt is asking for A5's right now, but they were, and maybe still are, a great value. Matt, like Will, builds amazing mandolins. As do the...

    Re: Doubt about a banjo for Bluegrass

    Just to add, the technique is much different, as it requires 3 (usually) fingerpicks, vs 1 flatpick. Mastering the rolls Jacob mentions is a whole other thing compared with a single flatpick (my take...

    I love James tailpieces, but my take it that while the tailpiece alone may have made a small change in the sound, I agree with pheffernan, it's likely mostly Lynn and whatever he did to the set-up,...

    Yes, really aren't words enough for the sadness. Such a great human who touched millions of lives with his character and songs. So many people hit by this tragedy.

    Thank you John.
