  1. Re: Allen tailpiece - does the felt mute the sound or not?

    Re: Mandola strings

    This is exactly my experience. I have a 17” Kristufek mandola on which I put the 174’s. E and A are just fine. D is ok. G is quite flabby. So what I did was replace the top G with a 32 PB single and...

    Re: Rubner tuners on Eastman MD305?

    I, too, replaced the OEM tuners on my MDO305 with Rubners. Plain nickel with plastic buttons but they work great where it counts and they were $79.

    Personally I don’t care for 2 piece TP’s. Whenever possible I have changed out for a hinged TP like James or Gilchrist. Can’t honestly say I’ve ever noticed a tonal difference but, as stated by...

    I have a Reunion Blues leather bag. Quite a bit sturdier and much better padded than a simple gig bag. I use this to transport my Kimble the short distance to my partners house. Packed with armrest,...

    Yeah. I saw a Baggs Venue this morning in the Cafe' classified. Was going to snap it up when I finished golf which of course was too late. I snoozed. I losed.
