    Re: Thank you Scott and Dan!

    Wholeheartedly agree. This must have been a stressful time for Scott and Dan the last few days. I am glad you guys stuck it out and got the forum back online. This forum is a great resource and as...

    Re: electric hum

    In this case I don't think that was my issue. The room where my instruments are only had one 3-prong outlet (my house is from the 1660's). So when I got the amp are changed out one of the 2-prong...

    Re: electric hum

    Thanks for all the comments. I ordered some DeoxIT spray to try to clean the jack.

    electric hum

    Full disclosure: this is not a mando post but I figured there would be folks here that would know the answer. I have a mid-70ís Ibanez pre-lawsuit Les Paul copy guitar that has been sitting in a...

    Re: Subscription Tutorial Sites

    My two cents. I used Peghead Nation (the beginner bluegrass mando course) for several months. It did help me but I felt that the cost was a bit high for what I was getting. Once I learned the song...

    Re: Mandolin as carry on?

    I took my mando on a business trip to Australia last year, and the final leg was on a Dash-8 prop plane. With these they take your carry-on bag as you board the plane and toss it in cargo because...

    Re: Mandolin as carry on?

    Agree. If you buy a ticket via a discount site (like Priceline), your status is at the very bottom and you may not have the same policy and someone that bought from the airline direct. Having...

    Right Guard: Don't get dressed without it

    It's a good product but I have never considered using it on a mandolin. Maybe a banjo

    Re: Info on J. Bovier mandolins, please

    I bought a J Bovier off of Reverb last year and like you I was interested in the background. Per a recommendation here I contact Jeff Cowherd via email, gave him the serial number and he gave me...

    Martin, this is exactly what I want to do. I did the click track test and I came up with 1142 milliseconds. That seems like lot. I used the normal speakers on my desktop to play the click track...

    Re: economical option to record myself

    I did not know much about the Zoom recorder so I spent some time looking into it. It seems more capable than I expected. Just ordered a H1N

    Re: economical option to record myself

    That a bit too low-fi. Right now I am using a cheap eBay mic that plugs into me sound card. The quality just isn't good enough even for my needs

    economical option to record myself

    Looking for an inexpensive option to record myself to assess progress. I would just be recording mandolin and maybe a guitar backing track. I plan to use Audacity but need a decent microphone. I...

    Re: Merry Christmas

    Hope everyone had a Happy Holiday. I only got one mandolin related item, a Celtic Mandolin book from my daughter. My wife surprised me with a Cigar Box 3-string slide guitar. It's fine to goof...

  19. Re: I put new strings on and positioned the bridge myself

    I think "loathe" is a good word to use to describe how I feel about changing strings (and washing the car and mowing the lawn), but, I do enjoy how the mandolin sounds after new strings
  20. Re: I put new strings on and positioned the bridge myself

    I really, really despise changing my strings, but after 3 months or so I finally break down force myself to change them. 3 years is a whole new level of procrastination

  24. Re: Sirius Radio Replaced Bluegrass station 62 with 24/7 Dolly Pa

    Bait and switch? Really? That seems a bit strong. I am not sure all that aggravation was worth $7.50 but it seems to me that Sirius customer service took care of you

    Re: Natural talent vs practice

    I think this is a great thread. I am firmly in the camp that you need innate talent to be really exceptional at something. We tell our kids that they can do anything if they put their minds to it...
