    "Swing" number tunes

    I was working on Swing 51 earlier (thank goodness the Mandozine tab was accessible again). It led me to wonder how many numbered "Swing" tunes are out there and if there was any meaning to any of the...
  2. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Wow, I had heard a lot of good things about the recent changes Gibson from various guitar YouTube channels. It sounded like things were heading in a better direction but this certainly will tarnish...
  3. Re: How much does a Northfield actually cost to make?

    Reminds me of something my girlfriend said when talking about the cost of a hair appointment with her. You aren't paying for the $5 in hair color or the hour or takes her to put it on. You're also...

  8. Re: Slight frustration when changing mandolin strings

    In the year or so I have had it I have managed to pick a spot on one long sleeve shirt but that's it. One thing I do is I still use the rubber grommets to kill the ringing and I push them all the way...
  9. Re: Slight frustration when changing mandolin strings

    I used to use the paper envelope from the strings and placed it under the tailpiece and strings. It lifted the end of the new string up enough to be able to grab it.

    Re: Soundcraft Ui 16 mixer

    Re: D'Addario Strings - Ask Us Anything

    Joe, I had that big time with the regular phosphor bronze sets and even the EXP versions. Nasty green junk. I can destroy a set of those pretty quickly.

    I like Musescore, though there is a lot of additional stuff in there that you will probably never need. I have found a ton of helpful content on Youtube for figuring out where to click to do certain...

    really interesting video! I believe this is the same mandolin that Jonathan McClanahan has been documenting the truss rod repair for on his Facebook page. Lots of cool up close stuff there.

    Re: Northfield Airloom Recurve review

    I can easily put a new set of D'Addarios in there, probably several but haven't tried. Definitely one (see pic above).

    Re: Using a single microphone to play live

    Follow-up to post #32.

    I pulled the trigger on a Behringer Xair XR16 mixer. We are now able to get significantly more gain from the mic (have used it with both the MXL 990 and a Blue Bluebird)....

    Re: Northfield Airloom Recurve review

    The website says 5.25. I would say that feels about right. Noticeably lighter than the Calton.
