    Re: Some good practice

    Just did this challenge at a Black Friday gig. Sat in with a talented Singer/Songwriter who informed me on arrival that he tunes down a half-step. Played four hours of originals and covers, all...
  2. Re: To the multi instrumentalists: which instrument is your no. 1

    Piano is still #1 , but mandolin gets all the practice time and all the gig time.

    Re: Did someone say PICKS?

    Came here say the same thing. Especially so for the one on the left that appears to be an original Dawg pick.

    Re: Michael A Lewis Mandolins

    It is good to hear from you, Michael through we all wish the news was different. You have been in my thoughts lately, and that will continue. Take care of yourself, and all those around you.

    Re: Vulfpeck - Thile appearance

    Really enjoying listening to the interplay between Thile and Koz, especially how well they supported groove throughout their improv. Seeing the band sit down to watch was a nice element. "You can...
  7. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    Gig tonight, and as the only soloist for our hour-and-a half set, I'll be bringing the EM-200 as an alternate tone to break up the mandotony. Songs range from 'Grass to Grunge, and obviously will...

    Re: Tascam DR-05 vs Zoom H2N

    Going to throw out another suggestion, the Tascam DP-006 Portastudio. It is only slightly larger than the others, runs off batteries, stereo condenser mics. Advantage is that is is a multi-track...

    Re: In praise of solid body mandolins.

    When the banjo player in the band switched to electric, there was no other road to take. We have moved on to the amplifier wars, and an AC30 most always gets its way.

    Re: What has your mandolin been called?

    Just last gig, "Is that an ukulele?" understandable because we are an uke-centric band. Me: "No, this is a mandolin", and she went, "Drat! My nephew was right. I knew it was an uke, and he insisted...

    Re: Help please re. EM200


    Let me know if these work, or if you need better quality/angle/etc. Quick phone photos.
  12. Re: Two point semi/hollow electric mando w/ magnetic pickup

    2-point beauty is a worthy consideration, but another solid reason to choose the EM200 is that it is not semi-hollow. I greatly enjoy being able to use ample volume and overdrive without any concerns...
  13. Re: Rio Grande Mock 4 Pickup for Gibson EM200

    Thanks Len! The Loudbox Mini is a recent addition after joining a new band. Guitarists uses one, and after a couple gigs it was obvious, since it can power the mic'd rig and the electric. Have heard...
  14. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    The last thing I would want from an electric mandolin would be for it to sound like an acoustic mandolin. Electric guitars generally do not sound like acoustic guitars. To the extent that 'sounding...

    Hey there everyone, Happy Friday to you all! Bumping this back up to share what seems to be the ideal solution for the hum issue: EHX Hum Debugger. Works perfectly with no tone changes that I hear....
  16. Re: man I need a good tuner foot pedal model. not clip on

    Just talked with a pedal steel player using a BOSS needle style tuner, and said it works great for that set-up. We also had a good discussion of Peterson tuners, strobe-light vs digital and all...

    Re: Adventures in Clip-On Mics

    Late to this thread! I play in a similar situation to the OP - acoustic instrument along with drums, cajon, e-bass, pedal steel, accordion, electric banjo... occasional horns. Cops get called.

    Re: ‘Beach’ mandolin

    Small World: My travel/beach mando originally sold from Gryphon, but came to me very slightly used—not a scratch or nick to be found and still light blonde, 200 bucks. It's been over 10-years and...

    Quoting f-d because this approach is also not memorization.
  20. Re: backpack straps with sternum strap?

    I believe you can purchase third-party sternum straps for backpacks without one already, so you might look at REI and other camping outfitters for this as an a la carte item.

    Re: Bought & I Don’t Even Play

    Did that same move one day, bought a mandolin and joined the cafe. Welcome! Philphool is absolutely right, and you'll want to spend some time re-visiting LH and RH mechanics as you adjust.

    Good point! The current strings are a nickel medium set from The setup from The Music Emporium was perfect, so I asked about the strings and ordered sets to spare.

    It does seem to be the original electronics, and have been impressed with the knobs: clean sounding and satisfying to turn, tone cap is subtle and useful. They do like to be used, and it sounds...
