Dave Thomas II replied to Nanessence's discussion OK, who here is a Kamp veteran? in the group Kaufman Kamps
"Yes, it's all I was hoping for and then some. One intense week crammed with classes, jamming, concerts, making and renewing friendships with other pickers, listening to and playing other instruments, and even some "elbow-rubbing" with…"

Dave Thomas II replied to Stefan Jadefjord's discussion Bronze for mahogany and phosphor bronze for rosewood
"Sorry, I prefer to go the other way. I like the warmth of PB to soften the somewhat drier sound of my mahogany D-18, and the depth of my EIR Santa Cruz TR is enhanced by the extra "cut' of 80/20 strings..."

Easy Solution To a Common Acoustic/Electric String Problem

Found a solution to an often mentioned problem when having installed a piezo type bridge plate pickup transducer. The consensus of several Internet responders who have done this is that while the sound from strings 2 through 6 is good, the high e-string  is way too quiet with no real ring, sustain, etc. Some have suggested moving the transducer for that string away from a brace, Adding a 4th transducer, a not so easy job, etc.I recently installed a JJB pickup (jjbelectronics) in a 40 year old…See More

I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More

Arthur Knowler replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
