    Re: Multi-track Recording?

    Well, if you are going to do a lot of recording you would buy or assemble a dedicated pc, and once it is installed, keep it off the internet, and never patch it. But that’s not cheap anymore.

    Re: Uh oh THE Gibson may have a problem

    That’s ok, we can get along without them. I, however, am claiming t, n, s, h, r, d, l, c, and m. In that order.

    Re: Out of my league

    In the seventies, I not only had a Devastator, I had a first-run Exterminator. It was pretty player-grade, though - but it had tone to die for. I later traded it for a Firebird X. Stupid move.

    Re: Out of my league

    Fools! The first 23 Shmergels had a ‘c’ in them. He changed the name to hide his German background. A genuine ‘Schmergel’ is worth twice a Loar!

  6. Re: Tonedexter wavemaps for mando and mic position...

    No, using mismatched tonemaps won’t make your Rogue sound like a Loar. Think of it like this: the TD listens to the mic and pickup sounds, and figures out how to get from one to the other. To use an...
  7. Re: What is the most mandolins you've owned at one time?

    Well, I'm not very far along in this mandolin game, so I only have one, a Silverangel. But I can imagine an oval hole, as well as a mandola some day.

    I've been reducing my guitar inventory...

    Re: My new Silverangel Econo A has arrived!

    Just do it. My skills certainly donít justify it - but since I got mine I hardly play anything else (meaning guitar, banjo, or whatever) and I have improved quite a bit. Owning an inspirational...

    Well, I'm a new player, and thanks to this thread, I picked up some of the stuff mentioned here. I am working through the Steve James videos, and it's just what the doctor ordered. When he presents a...

    Re: cites rules on older instruments

    Please note that although the regulations may be a pain for musicians, there are good reasons for them. Gangs would illegally clear-cut rosewood growths for use in furniture, popular in Asia. They...

    Sure looks that way. Iíll have to check, but it sure it was controlled by an improper scan code.

    Yep.




    Yeah, I like clean, simple designs.

    Ken if you ever make it over drop me a line and I’ll host you. I’m right on the German-Swiss-French border (Basel) so we can do 3 countries in 15 minutes, if we don’t get out of the car. I can show...
  13. Re: The long, arduous journey of Silverangel #438 - with a happy

    I live on the German border - it would be, shall we say, poor taste here. Too similar to other words.

    I'm pretty sure the guys in Swaziland wanted to finally learn what the airspeed velocity of a...
  14. The long, arduous journey of Silverangel #438 - with a happy end

    I am not a mandolin player.

    I play a bit, but it’s a sideline. I play a cheap pressed-top instrument. It’s fine.

    I’ve been listening more and more to music with mandolin, and got the bug, and...

    For what it's worth, TommyTedesco tuned everything he played (which was quite a bit) like a guitar.
