    Re: Mandolins as a work of art

    Yes, in town once for a wedding, I was forced into visiting the Banjo Museum in Oklahoma City. It was actually a cool set of exhibits.

    Re: Paypal

    And you can guarantee that emboldened outcome: not taken further? :confused:

    Not trying to cause trouble. Just pointing out that no one can guarantee what the government will do in the future....

    Re: Has COVID affected your MAS?

    The pandemic hasn't affected my MAS or GAS, but experiencing a "bandemic" certainly has. :grin:

    Once one is part of a band (trio and quartet, occasionally), there are the mic and mic stand...

    Re: In Praise of Matt Flinner's Classes

    Yeah, I think that a couple of years ago someone commented on THE brown shirt that he wore each lesson session. I think he has switched it up to a blue shirt now. So, there is that mark against him....
  9. Re: David Crosby comments on tuning in Fretboard Journal

    Back in the 1970s, I had an A-440 tuning fork that I would use to tune my mandolin. I hit it on my knee, set it on the top, and tune the A pair to that pitch, and then tune the other strings to the...
  10. Re: What phantom power suply are you using with a DPA 4099?

    Yeah, that was my reason for going with a contact mic, I don't have to stand in a fixed spot.

    I take it that you want to mix the K&K sound with the DPA 4099 sound. That sounds interesting. Let us...

    And this is what I use.

    I zip tie it to my mic stand. The contact mic cable goes to one end, and the...

  13. Re: Single Note Melody - Is mandolin "easier?"

    My experience also. But I LOVE Django licks, so I continue to pursue them on the mandolin and it has greatly increased my dexterity. :mandosmiley:

    I also found a book of Grappelli licks, and...
  14. Re: Yet another first (budget) mandolin question

    Go with the 2073. F holes project better and solid wood all the way around beats laminated sides and back.

    Re: In Praise of Matt Flinner's Classes

    I read through this thread back when it started and was nodding my head up and down, "Yes, yes; everything being said is true", but now I feel compelled to respond.

    Re: Mandolin stand

    I was unaware of these so thanks for the link. For some reason I had the idea that Northfield used made-in-China exclusively but their stands are made in the USA by an American craftsman.
  17. Re: So I guess I'll practice scales some more....

    I get bored playing scales so I work on songs, playing the same 2- or 4-measure phrases over and over until I can play them smoothly. I am more likely to incorporate those phrases into my alternate...

    Yeah, I totally understand that. People who only play at home, entertaining the wall, really only need a good case to keep out the teddy bears. ;)

    Re: Mandolin stand

    Yes, it is well constructed. As to price, well, let's just say I use $1.67 picks instead $35 picks, and have shunned other mandophernalia. But a nice wooden stand was high on my list of desired...

    Mandolin stand

    Just as people come on to Mandolin Cafe and brag about their new mandolins, I would like to brag about a new mandolin stand that I received last week.

    In the past I tried to use one of those cheap...

    Re: Pickup options?

    Your assessment of piezo positioning makes sense. It is similar to the pickups on electric guitars. The pickup close to the bridge has a more electric (non-acoustic) sound than the pickup farther...

    Re: Pickup options?

    I have successfully used a Schertler Dyn-M P48 for several years now with NO finish marring issues. I had a Carvin PA (200W) that had phantom power (48V) and when that died, I bought a $50 phantom...
