    Re: 2020 NAMM Show Report

    It appears that the mandolin pickups are different from the violins in that they have no midi output. Is that correct? Is the Jazz Fusion dual output mandolin still available?

    Thanks

    On a $10k mandolin. Seems about right.

    Re: knot in top

    If its not for sale and it doesn't bother you, use it. I wouldn't put it in an instrument for sale. My $.02.

    Re: 2020 NAMM Show Report

    Well, at only ~2300 booths at NAMM, I'm sure it was a bit beyond overwhelming, even if the mandocentric part was way less than 5%. For an enthusiast, its was fun to see and speculate:)

    Of course not. It’ll be another option for players who need a solution to the volume problem, either to play natural or with any variety of synth sounds. I think the jam band group will like this...

    Re: Introducing the Sorensen VX

    While I like book matched the best to show the symmetry, that one piece back has a very good balance and shows excellently as well.

    Wouldn't be disappointed with either.

    Re: Banjo solos /mandolin

    If you're trying to emulate somebody, listen to their music. If not, do as you please.

    Re: help with tuners

    Usually disassembling them in place and cleaning/lubricating is the first step. Then check how they turn with no string tension. Then make a decision as to how to proceed.

    Just one opinion.

    Re: Tone Dexter users?

    This thread, the piezo and preamp threads as well, will probably all be impacted if Zeta gets traction with its new mandolins.

    Re: Position playing or shifting?

    Interesting observation. I think part of it is related to hand size, some players can reach a long way without using a pinky and therefore don't develop a lot of dexterity and strength there. But I...
