    Re: Pick Talk

    I swap out 3 identical Blue Chip TD 40's on guitar (my main instrument) because they will wear, and this keeps them all about the same.

    My mandolin pick is the Wegen 1.0 mandolin white.

    It...

    Re: Live Mic for Mandolin Recommendations

    I've been using SM57's for years.

    If it's not loud enough, everybody else is simply too loud.

    Re: Drop In Tuners For 1933 Gibson A

    I never thought about black until I just read your reply.

    It has an ebony bridge and fretboard.

    By golly, I'm gonna do it!

    Thanks, everyone. This is still the best forum on the planet.

    In the link for "Tuning Machine Maintenance" mine are the ones he says "never work well".

    Looks just like them.

    Re: Drop In Tuners For 1933 Gibson A

    I bought it from George Gruhn, who actually owned this mandolin twice. He also had some stories about Scotty Stoneman owning and playing it. I'm going to tear into it and do some cleaning and lubing...

    Drop In Tuners For 1933 Gibson A

    Had a gig the other night, and my stiff d tuner would barely get to pitch. I'm afraid of breaking the plastic.

    Man, the Stew Mac sight is a tad confusing. Does anybody know which tuners would drop...

    Re: PEEK Pick by EML Picks

    You never hear anybody talk about Tortex anymore.

    I used to love those when I was an electric lead player.

    I've never tried casein.

    People sure like it, guess I need to. But I prefer a Teardrop shape around 1.0.

    Re: New Guy

    Welcome.

    I have no idea why the "New Gal" posted on the same day, actually a few hours LATER than you, had nearly twice the responses...

    It's a good bunch here, but it can get expensive.
  13. Re: Can anyone top this amount of Blue Chip pick wear?

    Looking again, this is an odd wear pattern.

    My picks always tend to wear the points down, making them more round.

    Strange, indeed.

    I'd join a jug band in 2 seconds, but, like Charlie, there's simply no interest around here either.

    Fun stuff.

    Re: Clip On Tuners / What Cha Got ?

    I don't plug in.

    I've seen Chris Thile practically leave his tuner on for an entire show, tuning before EVERY SONG.

    The audience has no idea, except gear nerds.

    :)
  17. Re: Can anyone top this amount of Blue Chip pick wear?

    Man, I would have replaced it LONG before it looked like that.

    You got your money's worth.

    Clip On Tuners / What Cha Got ?

    My Snark just fell apart. Turns out this is a known defect for many years, making it designed to fail. I can't support that.

    Re: Patrick Sky RIP

    Thanks for the post. There are many little known writers/musicians who've slipped through the cracks and they all have a story.

    Some are just never told.

    Re: Amplification

    I've never liked pickups in a mandolin. Always used a mic, usually an SM57. Never understood why people have so much trouble mic-ing acoustic instruments.
