John R. Mann replied to Stefan Jadefjord's discussion Doc Watson signaturemodel from Gallagher
"I had the Doc Signature model and I can tell you that the description "it rings like a bell" is absolutely true. I had a G-70 once also but liked the Doc Watson model the best. It's well made, attractive, and has a great tone to it.…"

Synthetic "feel" vs Genuine TS pick "feel"

I recently acquired a real TS pick. In comparing it with a bluechip pick, same style, same beveling, I noted that the TS seems to "drag or scrape" along the wound strings where the bluechip feels smooth on all strings. The TS is fine on the non-wound types.Since this is my first experience with TS, is this a normal feel with a TS pick. I love the tone. Just wondering about the difference I felt.Thanks for any inputSee More

"Thanks, Bruce. I read what you wrote and it worked for me if I highlighted text in the browse line and then hit enter. ( As soon as my Mac heard the words PC, it got down to business :-) Thanks again. ) John"

John R. Mann replied to Jonathan Spencer's discussion Huss & Dalton TDM
"I'm biased because I own a TDM Custom and think it is great. I've played a number of Collings and they seemed a little more "trebly" to me. Just my old ears, perhaps. If you can get a D1A and a TDM Custom side by side and play a…"

John R. Mann replied to Irving Sanders's discussion What type or brand guitar do you play?
"Play a bunch of Martins, Collings, Huss & Dalton, & Bourgeois-- Play some Gibsons for a different sound.... ON the Gibsonesque side, the John Walker "Wise River" is a great guitar, an easy player, and sounds akin to and better IMHO…"

Hi John,
We were in MT not long ago. I did a Martin Guitar clinic with Larry Barnwell in Bozeman. Keep and eye on my website www.jimnunally.com. There is a schedule page there where you can find out where I will be.
I am pretty sure John Reischman and the Jaybirds will be in MT some time in 2010. Not sure just when.
All the best to you,
Jim

BTW--loved your interpretation of the Clinch Mtn/Pike County medley. Great tunes
Happy New Year
John

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…"

"Hi, Timothy.  I was contacted by a Timothy Allred about the guitars I make and I wasn't able to send an email back to him because his email program didn't know my email address.  Are you he?  Thanks."

Tim Allred contact

Howdy.  I'm a guitar maker and I got an inquiry from one Tim Allred on my contact form that I use on my website to try to cut down on spam.  Unfortunately he didn't give a phone number and he gave an email address that will accept messages only from addresses that are on his list--which obviously mine is not.  So my messages have all been returned to me.  There are many Tim Allreds around.  I noticed that this site has a member by that name, who is clearly interested in guitars, so I though…See More
