  1. Re: Northfield (& Beyond) Dilemma: A5 Special vs NF-F5S/NF-F2S

    That is a phenomenal deal and Kevin is a great guy to deal with. I'm pretty tempted myself other than I already have one just like it other than mine is a 2 piece back. Somebody hurry and snag this...

    It's basically just tab, but written horizontally instead of how it really should be vertically.
    Perpendicular tab? Chord tab?

    Re: Monel strings - what to do, what to do?

    I only have f hole mandolins. In my experience I preferred both Cut Mangan and D'addario monels over the Martins. Of course the Martins are the cheapest.

    thanks for bringing this thread back up. I just found a nice copy of Released on Discogs. A nice addition to my collection!
  6. Re: Who Has a Northfield F5-S with Airloom case?

    No issue with the fit of my F5S or 4th Gen in the Recurve, Airloom rectangular, or Tura Dlx.
  7. Re: Jams and Music Stores in/around Boone, NC?

    If you're after a 4th Gen, just order it from NF. You won't be disappointed. F5S are great and I own one too, but the 4th Gen is a beast and NF has a pretty high level of consistency.
  8. Re: Gilchrist Using The Tone Traveler On Mike Compton's Mandolin

    Frankly, to me it sounds like you have some kind of invested interest in these things from the tone and content of your posts, which rubs me the wrong way. I also think it is hocus pocus. Carry on....

    Re: Airloom Tura carbon fiber mandolin case

    There is significantly more room around the headstock sides with this case than with the older Canadian Calton I had (which actually touched sometimes).

  10. Re: Northfield Airloom Tura case versus Hoffee carbon fiber case

    There are not any locks on the latches. I have never owned a Hoffee and have only briefly seen one here or there, so I can't directly comment on the pros and cons comparing the two.

  11. Re: The weight balance between the head and body

    I use a Tone Gard and arm rest for other reasons, but they do help with the balance as well.

    Yes I have a tone gard and armrest on my 4th Gen and F5S with no problem. Bring a brand new case that was shipped empty, it was a pretty tight fit at first to wedge it in but now itís just the right...

    Re: Mandolin String Grommets

    Wow. I guess Mike Marshall's Loar is a piece of junk because he mutes them at the tailpiece AND the headstock. But what does he know.

    Thanks everyone!

    Reporting back after the jam, it was about as I expected. PLENTY of woof on the chop, but a little harder to cut through all the guitar bangers on leads. Overall though, I think...

    Congrats Eric! Interesting about the label. Maybe this was some kind of one-off prototype. The important part is that it sounds like it found a good home, congrats!
