    Re: microphone feedback cures

    I didn't quite clarify that it's the small lobe at the back of the polar pattern that can create problems. It the mic is pointed down, it may not be an issue, but I prefer cardioid patterns (SM57,...

    Re: microphone feedback cures

    Super/hyper-cardioid mics do have a small lobe in their polar pattern. I've found that can be a problem if the gain is high and/or there's any PA or stage monitor at enough volume to be picked up....

    Re: Microphones for home recording

    The SM57 is a good mic, especially for live use, and, TBH, most mandolins do not really put out a wide frequency range, so it can work. It does have a low output (sensitivity), and will require a...

    Re: Recommendations For Headphones?

    I wouldn't call them "terrible" but they have a limited lifetime. It's some sort of thin "pleather" IIRC and that has the advantage of being relatively pliable (good seal) that can be easily cleaned...

    Re: Old Woodworking Machines

    The school I went to back in the 70s had this massive bandsaw - they said it had originally been designed for meat cutting, as in cutting steers in half, if I had to guess. It cut through hardwoods...

    Re: Recommendations For Headphones?

    Speaking of cords! I've come to prefer straight cords, especially if you have more than one pair plugged in - maybe not so much for just a single pair. (When you go to sit down with a bud and record...

    Re: Recommendations For Headphones?

    For recording, any closed back phones with impedance =< 80Ω are generally going to be fine with any basic interface. You can spend a little or a lot, but specifically for *tracking* all you need is...

    Re: How many Mandolins to own

    Minimally, kidding aside, I’d say 2.

    If you’re in the habit of playing one (of any instrument) regularly, you need a backup for those cases where the one needs repairs taking more than a day or...
  11. Re: Classifieds keyword filter (feature request)

    As already stated, you'll need the piece you want to *register* (which is the correct word, at least in the USA) in either written or recorded form.

    Re: Bag or case

    I recently got a Travelite, and with my Eastman and Tone-Gard, it's tight. Reviews on that case with Tone-Gard are mixed on this forum - seems to depend on the mandolin. I'm not wild about the feel...

    I don't really have any update from what I posted initially. I never thought I'd buy a pick this expensive, and probably expressed that verbally more than once, but just ordered another one.
