"Ave Daniele, Grazi for the invite! You need to be more choosy about whom you extend invitations to, though. When people see that I am your friend you will become an instant pariah. Of course, that's probably better than becoming a piranha! Chow…"

"Jerry, It may be the perfect job, however I am an imperfect man and the resulting dissonance makes for a life fraught with gloom, despair, and agony on me; deep dark depression, excessive misery. If you want to hear more just call me at…"

Mike, welcome to the site. I play a Merrill and live in Richmond Tx. I too love Flop Eared by Pottier and Rothman. Spent a week with pottier at Camp Bluegrass about 5 years ago. What kind of engineer are you? Jerry

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 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…"
