    Re: Playing a five string vs a four

    I think of a 5 string emando as a mandola with a cheater 'e' course.

    Get yourself started with mandola chords/CGDA. Then start playing scales using all 5 strings. What you'll quickly sort out is...
  3. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    The whole idea of electrifying instruments was to amplify the acoustic sound. It follows on from other efforts: Archtops, Resonators, reverberation boxes, etc. Our own patron saint of the mandolin,...
  4. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    Love that Jason Anick video. I play a similar beast made by the same luthier, Paul Lestock, but I only aspire to that level of musicianship.

    Re: General Mandolin Post

    If we didn't discuss the minutiae what would we say to each other? :)

    Take all this advice with a grain of salt and use according to your situation.

    For example, I have NEVER humidified my...
  6. Re: What is the most mandolins you've owned at one time?

    I'm not sure what you're counting as a mandolin, but I currently have 8 mandolin family instruments (3 solid body electric, 2 F5s, 1 hollowbody electric, 1 mandola and 1 octave mandolin), 4 guitars...

    :) Not just points and a scroll, but interchange f hole and round hole tops!

    I think you're right. They are looking for a market. It's a solution in search of a problem.

    Re: I play a little guitar...

    I once described my dreadnought as a "six single string course octave mandolin in an alternate tuning."
    It got a laugh.

    Re: Notation for Long Black Veil

    Thanks Al! I'm having flashbacks now. :)

    I arranged that song a bit differently than most people do. I hit a Bm early rather than hanging on the G, and I never go to the D.

  17. Re: Question about Acoustic Amps and PreAmps

    Really? Nearly every desk I have ever seen has a button for 48v phantom power. Most people never use it. So I can imagine quite a few amateur engineers wouldn't know about it.

  18. Re: Question about Acoustic Amps and PreAmps

    Yep. Non-musicians listen with their eyes. But better sound will improve the overall experience, so they will like it better. They just won't be able to tell you why.

    What? No photos?

    I'm interested because I am thinking about a 5 string OM (GDAEB). Though I may just give up and go back to guitar. <gasp>

    Re: Electromagnetic output from pickups

    Just had a thought.

    As one ages, the hearing above 17kHz disappears. I think the threshold age for that is about 40. I wonder if the gear is working perfectly and I just can't hear it because the...
