    Guitar toolkit has a nice accurate tuner as well as a metronome and a chord finder that can be set for mandolin. Handy to have in your pocket.

    Most Y-splits are passive anyway, so it wont matter who supplies, just use the usual source, probably the venue.

  23. Re: Suggest your favorite 8-string mandolin string sets...

    I'm lucky if a music store within 160.93 kilometers even has any mandolin strings. Usually I am confronted with "Oh, do you mean ukulele?" Or " We have strings for a banjo if that helps."
