    Re: Michael Kelly label question

    I have an A-Solid I bought in 2004 from Folk of the Wood. Maybe 2 or 3 years ago I had a question about it and emailed them. They were quick to respond. I'd email that pic to the company and ask, bet...

    Re: 1 1/16" fret advice

    So I compared the course spacing on it to the spacing on the Michael Kelly and have and it's noticeably wider. Gonna get a new nut and see how that goes.

    1 1/16" fret advice

    So I have a Nashville made Flatiron A that I love but am having some issues with because of the narrow neck. I don't have big hands so didn't think this would be much of an issue but am having a lot...

    Quarantine Remote Group Recording

    My buddy tried to get a bunch of people he knew to record parts to a song he wrote, all on their own, from home. I added a little basic mando (so there is mando content). Just a fun little project....

    Re: Using a DI and Preamp

    The preamp I'm getting has a 1/4" balanced out so my plan is to get a 1/4" to male XLR. Then down the line may get an amp for monitor use. Its nice, the preamp has a reverb setting on it but has an...

    Re: Using a DI and Preamp

    I may get some kind of amp to use as a monitor but its really the mixing board part that I'm curious about.

    Using a DI and Preamp

    I am not sure if it is necessary to have both but I have an active DI and am considering buying a Boss acoustic preamp pedal. The pedal has a notch filter on it which seems like it would be helpful,...

    What do you think Thile means at the end of the video when he says Loar was "going nuts" with his personal mandolin?

    Re: Octave bridge slot repair

    Looks great but is about 4" too long for my hands. Had enough trouble with the A chord fingering on the 20.5" Fender.

    Re: Octave bridge slot repair

    Yeah, Western CT is definitely a dead zone for anything mandolin related. That's why I had to go to the net for an octave. Luckily, I got it from Reverb and despite it being sold as-is,...

    Re: Octave bridge slot repair

    Thanks for the advice. The top on it was sunken in as well. I thought I could just humidify it to bring it back but on closer inspection realized the bracing was cracked. It's going back to whence...

    Octave bridge slot repair

    Why I keep buying instruments online I don't know. In this case I guess the complete lack of octaves anywhere near me is why. I bought a cheapo fender off reverb just to try out the octave. Said it...

    Re: Restored Gibson A jr on FB marketplace

    Re: Restored Gibson A jr on FB marketplace

    could the paint be stripped off without totally ruining the instrument? I'm just asking out of curiosity, no interest in it myself.
