"Whatever you get, you should try to get one with removable reservoirs.   The big Sears units are good and they sometimes go on sale at or around your budget.  I removed the two internal plastic cannisters and replaced them with a float…"

"I've been picking up a few toasted old style AKG 451s and having them rebuilt with some success. A budget approach that is turning me into a believer. 'Course I still like my KM-184s."

"Well I may crash your cabin! Bought a Borges OM and sold (I hope) the Collings OM. With gutiars, mandolins and fiddles (and ukes), should be a fun time!"

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…"
