    Re: Swapping Taylor guitars pickup

    You should be able to check with Taylor if they are the same. I would be careful about swapping as a proper fit of the transducers and saddle are important. Also in my experience Taylor will siez on...

    Re: Bowed neck issue

    I agree. If the neck angle is right don't change it. In addition to the good advice given above. A thicker fret board can help too. Though it will change the feel of the neck.

    Re: Now HERE's a mandolinist's worst nightmare:

    One of my prouder moments as an upright bass player was being told they couldn't hear the banjo over the bass. BTW no amplification was used.

    Re: Song Writers???

    For me lyrics, usually just a catchy line, start the process. After that the melody I start from singing the line keeps things going. I almost always sing as I write so they go together.

    Re: Omnidirectional Mic through bass amp

    Try it in rehearsal and see but I suspect the microphone impedence will be a poor match for the amp.

    Re: A question about guitar bridge pins

    I agree with Dale. Bridge pin material has at most a negligible impact on sound. Proper fit of the pins and string installation is much more likely to remedy your problem.

    Re: Stewmac Upgrade kits

    I disagree. It is just as easy to remove the parts from the Squire and sell them as it is with a mandolin. Maybe more so as there is a bigger market. Either way you are unlikely to break even if you...

    Re: Gibson mandolin hope to find info

    The people here offering multiples of $5 are joking around because $5 is an incredible deal. If your friend is interested in selling he should get a real appraisal.

    Re: Kluson split-shaft tuners for mandolin

    You should be able to buy individual tuners to complete a set. Be aware they probably are heavier than the existing tuners which could cause neck dive.

    Re: Metallic String Buzz

    If putting felt under the truss rod not makes the buzzing worse it sounds like the truss rod itself may be buzzing in the slot. Depending on how it is installed that could be an easy fix or a big...

    Re: Intentionally Imperfect Tuning

    I tune in unison but the combination of my inexpensive mandolin intonation issues inherent in a fretted instrument, pick attack and less than perfect left hand technique tend to add some beats.

    Re: How to repair this broken head stock ?

    I agree with Sunburst's approach. I would not worry about the collector's value as it is already pretty much gone. That said, a well repaired neck will have more value than a replaced one.

    Re: Smokey Smelling Mandolin Case

    If it is on the outside of the case a good cleaning should help. A friend had good luck on the inside by putting a cut up apple in a mesh bag for about a week.

    If you are not using phantom power, a simple A/B switch with one side not connected would work.

    Just be aware that walnut will darken with time and exposure to light. I don't know if it will still darken if it has been dyed though.

    To swing this back to the accuracy of various tuners; I doubt very many of us can hear a difference of 0.1 cents which was stated as the poorer accuracy of the Snark. I don't know where that number...
