    I’m pretty sure Gilchrist stopped coming here because he kept getting skipped over on the traveling pick sampler.
  9. Re: String preferences for Collings MTO oval mandolins?

    I have a set on mine now, I think. They mellow it similar to the Silk and Steel and Monels. I liked them but not quite as much as the ones I just listed.

    On at least 8 different instruments each with a cost of at least 15 times your budget. Make sure you where an old concert t-shirt.
