    Re: Wegen pickers - how often do you replace?

    I too am digging the M150s. I keep one with each mando and another in my keychain pick case. Tough little buggers.

    Re: Wildfire....?

    Last time I saw Wildfire it was still Robert Hale leading and Curt Chapman playing bass.

    Darrell is a heck of a talent.

    Re: Wegen Picks

    I've been using the M150s for a while now. Perfect feel for and tone for me. I started playing guitar a bit again and it works well on there too.

    Re: need help with my mandolin

    The bridge on your mandolin is just a piece of aluminum added probably when the old bridge either broker or got lost.

    Re: superglue neck

    I think it's the nitro cellulose lacquer finish. It gets soft and almost gummy on very hot and humid days. Mine has the same issues. I've used 000 steel wool to reduce it.

    Re: Power cords

    That's why they are called power chords. So powerful, you dont even need the third note.

    Re: How the Pros Travel With Instruments?

    I'd say Calton for those that travel by air a lot. If I was playing for a living, that's what I'd go with.

    There are other makes with a similar quality, protection, and design.

    Re: Gibson Sam Bush strings

    That reminds me, I need...

    Re: Point of Diminishing Return

    I have played hundreds of mandolins and I find the point of diminishing return to be around $1400 if I was shopping for an A and $2500 for an F.
