    Re: Rubner Tuners

    I searched for years for replacement, 3-on-plate tuners for an old Guild classical guitar I have, a 1963 Mark IV. In the early years Guild used tuners with 37mm post separation instead of the much...

    Re: A Different Busking Question

    Mostly singles. Some fives. Maybe one or two tens. And once in a while a twenty or two.
    We average somewhere around $100 for two hours of playing. We once got a plastic bubblegum machine ring.

    Re: Pete Hicks

    Got to see him with Bean Creek many times. Besides being a great player, and a great guy, he was a talented builder.

    Re: Just tried a Blue Chip pick on my mandolin

    Once I found D'Andrea Plec 1.5mm picks, my pick hunt ended. I tried a buddy's Blue Chip, and it didn't really do it for me. And usually, I like the expensive stuff.203058

    Re: Anybody dealt with Vintage Gintage

    Couldn't swing the one he had, so I bought a Kentucky KM-1000B. I think I chose wisely. 202847

    I got me a KM-1000B, too, but a new one. They sell in the low to mid 2000s. Absolutely love it.202675

    NMD - MAS has struck

    After exhaustive online prowling, I settled on the Kentucky KM-1000B. Boy howdy!
    Now I just have to prove myself worthy of this quality instrument!

    Re: Anybody dealt with Vintage Gintage

    I've since found out he was one of the Buffalo Brothers Music Shop brothers. I used to have a custom Martin commissioned by them.

    The deal will proceed. Thanks, everybody.

    Re: Do You Play ALL of Your Mandolins Regularly?

    My 1920 Martin A goes to the Celtic jam with me.
    My Loar 590 MS goes to the bluegrass jam.
    The StewMac goes out now and then, but it's definitely in 3rd place.

    I bought a case from Elderly that, sadly, they no longer carry. It is a tweed pattern, simple A-shaped case that's probably ideal for Gibson A mandolins, but a little large for my 1920 Martin...

    Re: Best Android Tablet >10" for Sheet Music

    That's why I added the additional storage. JPEGS seem to open quicker than PDFs on my Kindle - an advantage in a jam circle where we play from a large book of tunes.
