    Re: Electric mandolin - who's interesting?

    Andrew Hendryx new release "Widening Circles" has, to me, a bit more latitude than many others that feature electric mandolin. It's undoubtedly mandolin. His style and tones are purely electric,...

    Re: What mandocello music to you listen to?

    Rick Neilson of Cheap Trick plays one on a few of their earlier recordings, including a song called "Mandocello". That's where I first heard of one, but oddly, never found any other artists of that...

    Re: Help please!!!! Messed up pretty bad

    Re: Pros/Cons - 4 vs. 8 strings

    The other advantage with a 4-string electric is that you can add effects, including a slight detune/delay/chorus to make it sound more like 2 courses.
