Re: Opening a mandolin up with high SPLs.
I'm in the camp of putting my mandolin in front of the guitar amp/speakers on stage. To me it feels less stiff when we get to the mandolin songs. Even if it were proven that it has no real physical effect, it has a mental effect. And that works for me. I just have to remember to rock the volume pedal back so it doesn't start feeding back.
