  1. Re: Just Ordered my First Mandolin, Advice?

    This Sierra Hull video

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tCoGGcsi0I&t=142s
    Is a great place to start. Then for sure basics lessons.
    I've had a good experience with Banjo Ben who has a wealth of...
  2. Re: Does your mando need a setup? Learn to do it yourself!

    I much appreciated the instruction and the time + effort that has gone into honing it.
    Takes the mystery out of the whole setup process and gives all the info needed to either make a budget mando...

    Re: Monel strings

    For those who have compared Monels to nickel-plated steel, what did you think?
    I really enjoyed my one (so far) excursion into monel and am about to try nps.

    Re: Light Strings

    If you haven't trained yourself to play with the lightest touch you can, you may find yourself bending the strings the strings while you play. For my playing, there's no upside to light strings. I...
  6. Re: Central Oregon - I need to try a Weber Yellowstone

    FWIW, all of my mandolins have been flat fingerboards. While shopping last year, I did get to try a Yellowstone and a Gallatin and the radius on both was unnoticeable (by me). There wasn't a big...

    Re: Punch brothers

    Thile's right hand barely moves during that solo. I swear I see a moment where he's only moving the pick with his fingers

    Re: Thile using an SM57 mic

    Even my dinky band is bringing our own mics, when PA is provided.
    I'd be surprised (but not blown away) if Thile left his mic choice up to whatever was in house.
  9. Re: Who makes a symetrical F case for my two-point?

    They most certainly are. If the TKL 8900 had a compartment that fit both my strap and a pack of strings, we wouldn't be discussing it.
    The case I have is the perfect size and shape. It just needs a...
  10. Re: Who makes a symetrical F case for my two-point?

    Let's say I wanted to ask if anyone knows who could upgrade/customize the case I have. Would this post have enough visibility or does it warrant a new thread?

    Re: Clown Barf Construction

    First gig out with the clown barf that came included with my mandolin. I'd rank it dead even with the Primetone and Wegen. I have the Golden Gate MP-12 Deluxe Tortoise Style Rounded Triangle, which I...

    Re: Thile using an SM57 mic

    If you follow all the conversations and read the liner notes, it seems he changes microphones like most people change their clothes. A lot of people were really unhappy about the ribbon mic he used...

  14. Re: Mando & Fiddle: The value of double stops

    We just saw Ricky Skaggs a few weeks ago and he had Billy Contreras in there. That man plays with double stops like nobody I've heard. Find some youtubes and marvel at his prowess.
  15. Re: Epiphone MM-30: Should I Improve It, Or Upgrade?

    I had a guitar with a similar issue. It was a model I had been playing since '81 and replacing it would have been more expensive than fixing the one I had. 100% worth it, as I looked at a ton of...

    Re: Mating strings to mandolin

    Enough to justify it. I practice daily, have a whole band practice weekly and have been playing long shows most weekends. I go back to EJ74s between each new try, so 3 of the five have been those....

    Re: Mating strings to mandolin

    I'm not sure I would call it complementing or moderating the sound of my mandolin. It's more learning the "neighborhoods" of sounds that come from different combinations. My mandolin's sound will...

    Primetone, in your comparison.

    I am in a similar place in my journey with the new two-point. I'd been through the whole gamut of picks and am now working through the string universe with another...
