    Re: PEEK Pick by EML Picks

    The difference between now and the good old days: Back then you had a dish full of discarded picks you paid twenty bucks for. Now your dish costs you two hundred. Progress.

    Re: Monel strings

    I’m getting used to the tone and really liking it. Adds a resonance to the wound strings that is quite pleasing.

    Re: 1984 vs New Duff F5 Style Mandolin

    I could gladly take either home, but then I’d have to realize I would sound just like me.

    Re: Weber Redesign results

    We must also focus on subjectivity and the limitations of auditory memory. Probably one of the most successful instrument redesigns in recent memory was the 2012 Martin D 18. I don't like them. I...

    Re: What if I bought the wrong instrument?

    It is my opinion that if your first mandolin is a base line quality instrument, like all Km 150 and above Kentucky or equivalent Loar or Eastman, the type is unimportant. As...

    Re: A day spent in my home studio...

    May I make a few suggestions that will make a positive difference? First, buy dedicated cords for everything. Don’t use a 10 ft cable if three or six will do. Get everything off the floor and you can...

    Re: Light vs. Medium vs. Heavy Picks

    As I have progressed, I have moved to heavier picks on both guitar and mandolin. 1.2 for guitar and I'm currently using 1.4 for mandolin. I think they come off the strings quicker. Thinner picks...

    Re: Tone Dexter users?

    But as I understand it, it is not spitting out the recorded sound, but reacting on the fly to the difference it has learned between your pickup and your recorded sound. Otherwise you could just buy...

    Re: Monel strings

    Using Martins now. I'll use them up and try the Curt Mangans. My mandolin did have volume to spare and they do warm it up.

    Re: Northfield mandolins

    The fact is that even if you have a a budget up to six or seven thousand dollars, you should seek out and play an F5S or a Big Mon or an Artist. Part of getting the right mandolin for you. But if you...

    Hard to find these in my neck of the woods, so finally ordered them to put on my loud and bright Arches kit F. So first impressions, they warmed up the mandolin significantly at the cost of a bit of...

    I once was at The Mandolin Store and played two F 9s. One was a new Harvey era, the other was pre Harvey. They were both good. Had I ordered the older mandolin, I would probably have been happy. But...

    When you have one in your hands, what relevance does a mandolin from the past have? I know, we like to obsess, but the only thing relevant is what you are holding. It’s like the recent Taylor guitar...

    Whatever the color, those flat tops are sweet sounding mandolins.
