    Re: Volume boost pedal question

    I have talked with K&K several times about a preamp more suited to the mandolin/violin frequencies, but I think they think the market is not there. The K&K pre is definitely more suited for guitar. I...

    Re: Man I need a good tuner...

    I have a couple polytune/unitune tuners. They are great tuners, but have one weak spot. I take them off and put them on after opening them. The small thin plastic can otherwise crack where you would...

    Re: Question about glue

    I agree with grandcayonminstrel. I also have done several upright bass tops or backs with HHG in a session with no help.

    Re: Volume boost pedal question

    I have had several preamps over the years, but have been using the RedEye for years now. I did wire in a micro switch for a mute in mine.

    Re: Man I need a good tuner...

    Clip on tuners are designed to work with very little effort when you pluck the string. Striking it hard can overdrive them. Very lightly touch the string with your finger or a pick, very lightly.

    Re: Do people ever change their strings?

    I just do one string at a time. I never take them all off at once unless a repair is needed. As mentioned change them all tho.

  8. Re: Looking for a clip-on tuner that works well in daylight...

    Another plus, besides working well and being accurate it that the batteries last. I have used mine daily for a year it seems, while my partner is always changing her battery.

    Re: Cleaning Mold From Inside a Guitar?

    Set it in the sun, you are going to glue it back together anyway, if something else opens up glue it. Sun should kill mold.

    Re: Eastman 304 fretboard extension

    I find oval hole mandolins sound better when played at the beginning of the hole on the bridge side. No need to remove anything.

    Try lowering your pickups, that should warm the tone some.
