    I use Gorgomyte when I'm switching strings. It's a fretboard conditioner that treats the fretboard, but also cleans it as well as polishes up the frets, and the back of the neck. For me, the extra 5...

    They are working hard to bring it back to the original intent of the show; a way for dealers to meet with manufacturers and conduct business. It's gotten far away from that, with many companies -...

    It's really quite simple; you just need to know someone that is a NAMM member to get a pass.

    Sadly not yet. I'm currently at the NAMM show, and the two weeks prior to this have been keeping my attention focused on getting the booth ready. This week when I get back I can look at what I've...

    As been mentioned, while they're designed with rubber strings, they're using the same materials as other instruments that use wound or steel strings. Also, the Pyramid wound wire is a silvered...

    I don't think the classical world has accepted the digital score nearly as much as everyone else in the the realm of professional musicians (and this is coming from a classically...

    Actually, a lot of the professional Broadway tours are all on iPads now, or digital tablets of some kind (I've been using the iPad in theatre pits for years now, with no problems whatsoever). There...

    I grew up in a household with two parents that were professional (meaning, they gigged out and got paid for it) musicians who were also music teachers by day. So, when I pick up an instrument to...

    I have the Hutch model (original version, prior to the onboard preamps) and it's okay. You can definitely turn it up a bit more before feedback happens because of the slotted sound hole.

    However,...

    I use the Cicada PageFlip for my church services as well as musical theatre performances. For me, having the ability to plug the unit in - in addition to battery power - was vital. I use it in...

    I wish there was a "like" option on this forum, as RichM's post above is dead on, especially on points #2 and #5.

    Intentionally twisting the string (mainly on a wound one) is running the risk of damaging it, since you can force the wraps to come undone from the silk/nylon core prematurely.

    All the really cheap tuners are, because the large majority of them are made with the same chip, from the same factory. I think the Snark has the standard range of +/- 1 cent, so when you have the...
