    Re: Hill Country Stringworks

    I ordered a lefty ebony for my MT.

    LOVE IT. It is so much more comfortable to play, can't believe I waited so long.

    As a side note, I leave it on when putting the mandolin in the gold hardware...

    Re: McClung Armrest

    Thanks for your good work, Doug. I have three, two on mandolins and one on a mandola using a viola clamp. They all look good, work great and prevent my arm from developing a permanent crease.

    Re: Pickguard or no pickgaurd?

    Yes, same concept, facilitates good ergonomics! Also +1 for the McClung armrests that Doug makes (he's in Texas too!), they're beautifully made and work great!

    Re: Mandolin armrests - Yes, No, Type?

    I use McClung style armrests from Hill Country Stringworks. They keep the mandolin from getting slimy with sweat & keep my forearm comfy. I'm also a tone-gard fan but would be hesitant to use...

    Re: Mandolin armrests - Yes, No, Type?

    Am split on them. A little more than half mine have them, the others don't. For me, it's more of how much does my arm dampen the sound from the top? Some sounded the same (one worse) with an armrest....

    Re: Mandolin armrests - Yes, No, Type?

    I am of the opinion that, yes, they do offer benefits.
    What I find is they raise the forearm enough it lowers the angle of the wrist. This allowing for less tension in the wrist.
    I also find...

    Re: Mandolin armrests - Yes, No, Type?

    It really depends on how you hold the mandolin. If you steady the mando with your forearm you might find it's more comfortable to have an armrest.

    I think it also puts your wrist in a slightly...

    I think the opinions about armrests will be all over the map. You don't "need" one to play mandolin. I personally like the McClung armrests and have them on several instruments - they protect the...
