  1. Re: Octave mandolin e-string general question

    Got it - although I had the impression that some strings are a much harder "carbon steel" vrs a softer "plain steel". Sounds like that is not the case for E-strings? If the only difference between...
  2. Re: Octave mandolin e-string general question

    Well we can laugh together - but your experience helps! The material is the same? Thank you!
  3. Octave mandolin e-string general question

    Don't laugh too hysterically at this one:
    I currently have an EJ80 .012 E-string on my 23" scale octave. If I experiment a bit, what factors (thickness and material) would shift in the direction of...
  4. Re: Rest Strokes - a means to an end, or part of regular techniqu

    As a newbie classical student I don't find it makes me "down pick-centric". It does make me acutely aware of the wonderful potential of judicious and thoughtful pick use on the music. I also find it...

  8. Holding an octave mandolin like a classical guitar

    I'm curious if any of you who play classical music on an octave mandolin hold it in the position depicted here - with the neck angle at 45 degrees or much more? Just by accident tonight I held my OM...
  9. Re: Rest Strokes - a means to an end, or part of regular techniqu

    For many classical players it is absolutely a part of their technique and used when the music dictates its use. It is definitely not just a temporary learning tool. I have no idea about other genres...
  10. Re: Campanella, Red Diamond, Northfield, Collings experience

    Re: To look at the mando or not?

    I don't think it's a reflection of how "good" a player is; or that the player is a "beginner"; or anything else. Like picks; like pick grip; like strings; like mandolins - it's individual preference....

    Re: Pick Thickness

    My experience is that the particular instrument you are playing may impact your choice of pick thickness. For example, I prefer a thinner pick for my bowl back. I suspect that most people will prefer...

    Re: The Joy of an OM

    My OM has a 23" scale and I have no problems with a floppy G string - or any other strings. Going to an OM from a mandolin does require a different approach to fingering but it's not really a huge...

    Eva Scow and Mike Marshall

    I would love to see these two incredible musicians performing together. As far as I can tell it has never happened.

    Edit: Actually the more I think about it maybe this is an inappropriate hope....
  18. Re: Differences between Eastwood Mandostag and Godin A8

    kurth83 I should have said Mandocaster - sorry. So would you be saying the Godin and Mandocaster are essentially similar? Or am I being obtuse?

    Jim, I have listened to a great deal of Eva Scow and...
  19. Differences between Eastwood Mandostag and Godin A8

    I know absolutely nothing about electric mandolins - so please bear with my question. For practical purposes are these two mandolins essentially the same? Thank you in advance.
