    Re: High marks for Schaller GrandTunes

    Anyone know if the Grandtunes would/could be a good choice for an Eastman 305? I didn't want to stick a lot of money in a mando that I would/could grow out of in the future, with the stock tuners...

  3. Re: Finally had to set up my humidifier this year

    I moved from the So Cal tall pines area where I had to have all instruments cased, to the San Diego area where the humidity inside hovers around 50%, and leaving them all out on stands. The problem...

  8. Re: Is the Eastman 505 all that much better than the 305?

    I also would be interested in some drop in replacement tuners LB. Someone suggested Grover 309's, but from what I read they are for F's, not A's?

    I think you're right on the money Allen, and the...
  9. Is the Eastman 505 all that much better than the 305?

    Also, the 505 comes with a hard case, not a gig bag like the 305. I don't really care about the hard case as the mando just sits out on a stand like my guitars, but for only $244 more I could have...

    Re: From A Jack To A king

    My bad. It's "From A Jack To A King" by Ned Miller. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJEs2uM7zaM I don't think Ned wanted to be a Queen. Duh.

    Re: One of those days - string changing woes

    I'm guessing you can't use the Taylor Method to string a mando with regular (74's)? I never tried it, but wondering.

    I'm sure you know to keep her playing and not throwing it down in pain (sounds like me...) you need a really good setup.

  17. Re: Sound difference between a 305 and a higher end Mandolin?

    Yep, the tuners are not great, but the funny thing is they are much better now. I did lube them, but haven't lubed the nut slots yet, so I'm wondering if the slots are loosening up.

    As far as the...
  18. Re: Sound difference between a 305 and a higher end Mandolin?

    Marcus, I no longer have the 515 after deciding I would never play mando again, I sold it. I actually like the sound of the 305 better, and the guy I bought the 305 from (you all know him) felt the...
  19. Sound difference between a 305 and a higher end Mandolin?

    I haven't even learned much of anything other than my old songs, and already catching a bit of the "forum fever" looking around at other Mandos.

    My question is; would the sound of a higher end...

    Forgot to mention I bought the 305 from the Mandolin store with their pro setup, but to me the action seems as though it could come down a bit more. The problem I have now is finding someone who...

    Strings for sore finger tips

    Was wondering if others (beginners?) are having problems with sore finger tips using 74's/mediums? I was doing all right with playing about 30 min. per day, healing for 24 hrs., but now they are...
