    Re: A Pointless Repair

    Don-
    I think the finish is fairly thick, but the chipping removed some of the wood when the point piece tore off, and that may exaggerate the perception of depth. I wish my phone pic was better...

    Re: A Pointless Repair

    BTW the cracks in the top and bottom bindings at the point are from a previous repair when the instrument got knocked off a stand at a gig. I told Frank it didn't have to look perfect (lots of wear...

    A Pointless Repair

    I recently took a trip to NJ and NY with my Flatiron, and during the trip I once again had the bottom point break off. Unfortunately, this time I did not find it in the case, like I have in the past....

    I'm back in my home state of NJ for a visit and I hooked up with on old band mate to play a few at the open mic at The Dublin Pub in Morristown. He told me to make sure I got there early so we could...

    Re: Solo Performance Gear

    If you don't want to spend QSC levels of cash, the JBL EON 610 (~700W), is what I have been using. Using a PA speaker means no phantom power to power up a preamp for the guitar and mando (I use a...

    Re: beside the mandolin.

    My first instrument was a Harmony 5 string with a plastic body (1972?). Learned from the Pete Seeger book. I could never get used to the metal finger picks, so I still play quieter than most. Never...

    Re: Flatiron Performer 1995/1996 volume?

    No one ever seems to strain to hear my '93, that I bought new. I play with TI flat wounds and a 1.5 or 2mm thick pick. I seldom play with banjos or fiddles, mostly with too many guitars (2-4) and a...

    Re: Would someone please buy this

    Such a beauty! There's only 2 things that I don't like about this mandolin: the price and the pick guard. Assuming I could justify the $, just how is that pick guard attached? looks like it is...
  10. Re: What mandolin recordings are definitive to evolving its role?

    E.M.D. from The David Grisman Quintet (1977) if I have to pick one song from his catalog, but the whole record puts the instrumental Dawg music stake in the ground.
  11. Re: Newbie question: Mandolin for other instrumentals

    Guidance on the correct musical teminology:
    Transposing is not the correct term for what you want to do. To transpose is "write or play (music) in a different key from the original".
    What you want...

    Re: Mandolin Influences

    I started out in high school influenced by Pete Seeger because I got a banjo when I was a 15. There must have been some mandolin on the Flatt and Scruggs record I had, but I don't remember who it...

    It was totally on me that it fell, and I wasn't expecting it to be a warranty issue, but they made that call, in writing, twice. The point of my post was that it got sent back to me twice...

    Re: PreSonus Air10

    I have one I bought a couple of years ago and it was a great speaker until the stand it was on fell over at a gig. After the fall there was a noticeable distortion. Sent it to PreSounus for a...

    Re: Pickup/Mic Setup for a Loud Bar Setting

    The lowest cost mic preamp may be the ART Tube MP Project Series @ ~$75. I can't speak to the quality of that model but I had a an ART Dual mic preamp that was pretty clean if you didn't push the...

    Re: Wireless System Nux B-2

    Manual says input impedance is 1 Mohm, so it should work with piezo pickup, 10Mohm would work better, probably.

    The thing that struck me about Jethro's playing was how little he used his pinky, even on chords.

    Re: Glass mandolin syndrome

    Instruments are tools. Maintaining a tool is recommended. Does a cosmetic imperfection compromise the functionality of the tool?
    If you own multiple copies of the same tool, you are collecting, and...
