    Re: A question about floating pickguards

    Try the Ellis/Pava shop.

  4. Re: looking to move, but I have no clue where ?.

    Do NOT move to Colorado, it is awful. Weather is terrible, people are miserable, music scene is lousy. The doctors are quacks. I am telling everyone I can to not move here.

    I wish you well.

    Re: Tonedexter firmware question...

    Hi James, just so I am clear, are the following correct?

    You can record a mandolin using GEN and it will sound the same when you switch over to HGH, and vice versa (if eq is set to flat)?

    You...

    Re: Mandolin Recording Mic Setup

    My favorite mic for mandolin has been the Shure Ksm32. And yes room treatment is important, but you can build a “good enough” booth out of blankets and pillows. Keep in mind ribbons typically have a...

    Re: Old Ellis F5 vs New Ellis F5

    I have a Pava and have played several others. Also played and heard a handful of Ellis mandolins. Hard to quantify, but the Ellises in general had a more sophisticated, complex tone, though the...

    Re: Tonedexter firmware question...

    Yes, AFAIK. I think you would set up your guitar WaveMaps using the GEN firmware, then your mandolin WaveMaps using the HGH.

    I guess this also means you really have only 11 slots for the HGH...

    Starting with v1.3 firmware supports use of guitar and mandolin eq settings without needing to reload the firmware:

  11. Re: Grace Design BiX Acoustic Instrument Preamp

    Also a ToneDexter fan, though I have only used it with my fiddle (don’t have a mandolin pu yet). I said elsewhere that if you want your instrument to sound like it’s mic’ed but you can’t or don’t...

    Re: Condenser mic for live and home recording

    Plenty of good suggestions above, I’ll add in the Shure KSM32. As others alluded to, mic choice is situationally dependent. An LDC on a stage with a quiet audience is great. In the corner of a noisy...

    Re: Fender Cybertwin and JJB Marcato

    I don’t have a pickup on my mandolin yet, but I do have a cyber twin for guitar and Rhodes. Great amp, super versatile, not surprised that you were able to get a great sound out of it.
  14. Re: Do you bring your expensive mando to the bluegrass festival?

    I don’t live in the mountains but have spent plenty of time there in every season. I’ve never had heat related issues with any of my instruments. Then again, I am almost always camping where there is...
  15. Re: Do you bring your expensive mando to the bluegrass festival?

    Good common sense, but for the OP, average high temp in Telluride in June is 68 degrees. Other considerations of course if one wants to bring their nice instrument, but “too hot” isn’t one of them.

    The Sign Off has no indicator light, but a couple other Pro Co models do - the Power Mute and the Panic Button.

    Re: Microphone mute switch

    I use a Pro Co Sign Off. It passes phantom power, and there is no pop when you hit the switch. Solidly built.
