    Re: Capo for an octave

    The more I use that little Kyser the more I like it. I used Kysers on my guitars for ages. Then a couple of years ago I discovered the new Shubb fine tune capos and have used them ever since (but I...

    Re: A very water-damaged bowlback

    It doesn’t look like the tuning machines would merit the starting bid. I really want to know the back story on that one. Could be a case of a spouse who got tired of listening to their partner’s...

  9. Re: Just upgraded my iphone for the first time in nine years. :)

    I really like AudioStretch for slowing down videos. I take videos of my teacher playing chord progressions or demonstrating some technique or a nice lead idea, and then slow down/loop the video to...

    A) I bought a 305 last summer to take camping so I could leave my Northfield M safe at home. I really love that 305, but to be sure the Northfield has a much more complex and richer tone than the...

    Re: Need advice on how to set up for looping

    I too have been returning to looping as a practice tool. It appears you have another option with your RC-3. It has a mini stereo aux in which enables you to record and loop audio from any MP3 player....

    Re: Carbon Fiber Mandolin

    Well I guess tastes vary a lot - I think that mandolin of yours is stunning. I would love to have such a beautiful piece of functional art as part of my collection. Maybe someday....

    Tim and Eric are phenomenal pickers. I took a mandolin workshop from Tim at Walker Creek Music Camp a few years ago. Drinking from a fire hose - he gave us so much great instruction, it was truly a...

    Re: Ellis F5 Fern at Gryphon

    I played that A5 with every intention of buying it. I have a Northfield M but I fell in love with all the figure and polish of the A5. I brought my M with me for the audition. I spent quite a while...

    Here's another option: https://strummachine.com/. The only downside is that it requires a $5 monthly subscription (which can be reduced somewhat by paying for a year in advance). I used it for a...

    Re: ‘Beach’ mandolin

    It's already growing on me (played it another hour or so this morning ;-). The Northfield M is definitely NOT a case queen - it's got plenty of honest play wear on it and will continue to accumulate...

    ‘Beach’ mandolin

    I visited Gryphon in Palo Alto today to shop for a budget mandolin for road trips, camping and air travel so I can avoid bringing my more-precious-by-the-day Northfield M on excursions where it would...
