    Re: Musician Jokes

    What did the trombone player say at his first gig?
    "Do you want fries with that?"

    Did you hear the one about the bass player who tried to commit suicide because he couldn't keep time? Yep, threw...

    exploring an idea

    Howdy All,

    I have a JBovier EMC-5 with which I am entirely happy. However it has a shorter scale length than my Arrow G5, and in my hands the difference feels significant. So I can't really use...
  3. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    https://guitar.com/news/industry-new...-infringement/

    This paragraph made me laugh. I don't think ANYONE who has ever thought about purchasing a Dean guitar (V or Z) has ever said to themselves,...
  4. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Some thoughts...

    1) What bothers me most about this video is that the message violates the camaraderie and the cooperative nature of the luthiery community. Gibson is taking a go-it-alone and...

    Re: Playing a five string vs a four

    I chord mostly on the bottom three strings (CGD). Getting up to the E string is a bit of a finger twister. It's harder to mute the C string than the E string, so 5 note chords are called for. But...
  7. Re: Rio Grande Mock 4 Pickup for Gibson EM200

    I have been digging ever deeper into electric instrumentation and amplification this past year. I agree with Len. If your very good looking EM200 is electrically stock then there may be things you...

  9. Re: Effects for use on acoustic amp or PA with K and K pickup

    Staying acoustic, a bit of compression and a boost are always helpful.
    Look into effects made by Origin Effects (NFI), they have great pre-amp circuits.

    Give a Boss GE-7 EQ pedal a try. It has a...

    Hey Martin, what's the scale length on the ERM? Eastman isn't saying on their website.

    Thanks!

    Re: Argh...

    We have a winner (ish).

    It doesn't tick all the boxes, but it sounds great. I have reacquired my Ampeg JetII J-12T (15w, 1x12").
    Ampeg made a bunch of these in 2007 and 2008. I bought mine new....

  14. Re: 4-string emando, what’s the best out there?

    I read on the cafe some time ago that Tiny Moore chorded like he was playing a mandola and solo-ed like he was playing a mandolin. It dawned on me at that point that a 5 string mandolin is just a...
  15. Re: Requesting Recommendation for Strings for MIX Mandolin

    I don't use anything but Elixirs on my Mix F5, though admittedly I have not tried anything else but D'Addarios.

    The back of my Arrow G5 5 string. Quilty goodness.
    The photo is adding a lot of red. The sunburst is actually more of a tobacco colour.

    Re: Argh...

    Thanks guys.

    I think I overstated my case. The reason I don't want a bass amp is because guitar amps tend to colour the tone more, and I'm after a bit of colour, especially with the JBovier.

  18. Re: 19" octave mandolin - tune as CGDA

    I'd start with a standard mandolin set. I use D'addario EJ-74s.

    The string tension calculator (http://stringtensionpro.com/) shows a reduction in tension of about 4 pounds from a standard...

    Were you thinking of tuning down a fifth or up a fourth?

    Re: 4- vs 8-string electric mandos

    Listen to Paul Buskirk, Tiny Moore, Eldon Shamblin, Johnny Gimbel, Alex Gregory, Ricky Skaggs, Mike Lampert, Michael Kang, Jason Anick, and a few others.

    Argh...

    I wish someone would make an amp for the frequencies a 5 string electric mandolin puts out.

    Frankly a little frustrated with the available choices these days.

    I know several of you are happy...

    Re: My new Airline Electric Mandola

    Hi Joe,

    You've done what I would have done to start: get a new set of strings. Old strings can be a source of a lot of weirdness.

    Have you had the instrument set up?
    Have you determined if...
