    Re: My Tekno-band has made some recordings ;)

    Thanks for the feedback Ben! Up until now, only I have done the mixing. Since I'm mostly a vocalist I guess I may make the voice a bit too loud. Actually I too have had thoughts of making it quieter....

    Re: My Tekno-band has made some recordings ;)

    Thank you for the nice comments! The Mann is connected right into the computer, and then amplified using Guitar Rig 4 (the electric guitar and bass guitar is recorded with real amps though).

    Re: Baritone/octave owners

    Thanks dude! I guess all of us here can say that a double-stop tremolo on the mandolin sounds great, whatever the occasion though? :mandosmiley:

    Re: What Strings Are Best For Emandos?

    There are two luthiers in Sweden (Ådin & Ekvall) who builds mandolin-instruments like that (not emandos though). Here's a picture of Ale Möller playing one of those instruments:...
