    Re: Mods to Hoffee case?

    Jeff Hoffee just did a refit of a guitar case for me. Refit and return shipping was $250. Can't beat the cases or the service. All of my ten thumbs up for Jeff and his crew.

    Re: Mods to Hoffee case?

    Hoffee will modify it for a modest cost if you pay shipping both ways or are close enough to take it there

    Re: Mods to Hoffee case?

    Your best bet may be to get a custom Hoffee case and sell your standard one. I had a custom case made for my Arrow Jazzbo, to about 6 weeks but it fits perfectly.
  4. Re: Hoffee Case options - recommendations from owners

    Mine came with the backpack strap D-rings option and I installed an additional ring myself.

    Now I can carry the case straight upright on my back with one strap worn diagonally or just over one...
  5. Re: Hoffee Case options - recommendations from owners

    brad, it's sure convenient to have the 3 rings installed for the backpack straps even if you don't use them all the time. I have them on my Accord & Calton guitar cases and at times they're just the...
  6. Re: Excessive ringing on D-strings after fretting, like a pull-of

    Weird. My best guess would be something is going on with the grooves of the bridge or the nut, like maybe the string is catching on and pinging off a tiny shelf or double groove causing the extra...
  7. Re: Excessive ringing on D-strings after fretting, like a pull-of

    Sometimes when you play notes on the D string, the G string will resonate in sympathy, might be worth checking.

    If you want the note to choke off when you take off your finger, then you need to...

    Re: What’s your travel case?

    Almost any mandolin case will fit in an overhead compartment. I have been traveling constantly this past year and always have a mandolin with me. Lately I've been using a Hoffee - it is slightly...

    Re: Neotech Strap

    I used one for a while but seemed like too much strap for a mandolin. I prefer a thin round braided one that will stay on in the case and more comfortable in my opinion. However, they are greatly...

    D'Addario do a nickel wound set, and their FW74 chrome flatwounds are nice for electrics too.

    Re: Going Electric - what do I need to know?

    The electric pickups require a string that will create current when it passes through the magentic field created by the pickup. Bronze will generate a signal, but it will be lower and unbalanced...

    Re: Going Electric - what do I need to know?

    Welcome on the electric side ;-)
    Yes, the switch should indeed be a pickup selector.
    I would look out for a small tube amp, maybe also one from Thomann? Or check out ebay. Sometimes a Fender...

    Yes, no doubt about it, the Travelite case does have a number of genuine virtues, but I think you are overstating the situation rather badly when you boldly claim that it is "possibly the most...

    Re: Hoffee Vs. Austin Calton

    The Hoffee has more storage for sure, but I wouldn't say it's a "lot"of storage. The Hoffee's compartment is roughly 8" x 4" x 1.75". The Calton pocket is about 6" x 3" x 1". The big question is ......

    I have an almost new, about a month old Calton. My buddy has a Hoffee. They are both top quality as far as protection.
    The only difference is that the Hoffee clearcoat scratches very easy and shows....

  23. Re: Flatwoind strings on an acoustic mandolin

    The pyramids are darker sounding compared to the EFW74. Both sound like flatwound but the EFW74 are probably more versatile.
  24. Re: Flatwoind strings on an acoustic mandolin

    I buy the daddario FW74s in bulk. You need spares. Try them on everything. My philosophy is that volume is important on all mandolins, so it makes sense to put flatwounds on the loudest...
