"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

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

Thank you, Jim, for the information. Will be on the look out for them this coming year.
BTW--loved your interpretation of the Clinch Mtn/Pike County medley. Great tunes
Happy New Year
John

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

FGM DGBE

I play two-thirds of a guitar. I have some wrist issues with fretting the 6th string. I enjoy finger picking but have been an avid follower of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine for about 6 years. I find Dan Huckabee's beginners arrangements great for the bari-uke. I have also found much of Adam Granger's work suits my DGBE tuning.I once took a class from Dan Miller in Palo Alto, California and he told me that his daughter was playing the baritone uke. 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…"
