    Re: Electromagnetic output from pickups

    One thing to remember the output of the pickup is due to the vibration of the string. The guitar has much less tension and much more vibration/wobble over the pickup than the mandolin. You may want...

    Re: Electromagnetic output from pickups

    My mandos with the Ryder stacked singles ate noticeably less output than a guitar. But i think the difference is twofold — the higher pitch range is not where the effects show up best, and (in my...

    Re: exploring an idea

    Depends on scale length coming from and going to. The bridge location is pretty fixed but you may be able to move it back a bit to allow for a longer scale and/or shim the neck forward. I have put...
  5. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Iím inclined to disagree. There are so many things wrong with that video (and Gibsonís lawsuit against Dean) that itís hard to know where to start, but even as an individual musician with no dog in...

    Re: Anyone use an octave pedal?

    I use and love my nano POG from Electro-Harmonix. I love that it can do an octave high and low at the same time as well as a dry signal. Plus you can dial in how much of the high or low octave and...

    Re: Ryder 10-string conversion

    No problem with strings maintaining spacing on the bridge saddles, even with tiny grooves. The steep break angle probably helps on that. As of now, the height screws are tall and interfere a little...

    Ryder 10-string conversion

    Enjoying 10-string so much I never played my Ryder, so I converted it to 10-string. It has a sweet tone from the combination of mahogany body with maple overlay, and the bolt-on maple neck.

    My experience with mandolin into a bass amp is exactly the same. I bought an Acoustic Image “Coda” for bass and I’m now now using it for everything. Small, compact, even has phantom power on the...

    Midrange is hugely important to mandolin, acoustic or electric. Standard guitar amps might have mid centered on 1K, but how narrow the band is matters a lot. I find that with overdrive in the chain I...
