    Re: SNARK ST-2 Super Tight Clip On Tuner

    Snarks are cool, I’ve been using them for years and have several. But I recently decided to try the Unitune and frankly, it is superior. Not ditching my Snarks or anything, but the Uni is now my...

    I suspect there are only good years. Mineís an Ď01 Gallatin F and it is a wonderful mandolin. Original owner had it built with flame maple back and sides versus the then-standard mahogany. I do...

    Re: My new mute pedal: brilliant?

    Yep, that works. Some pedals use a relay based swich so when power fails it runs as full bypass. But a 'normal' dpdt will work just as you've found.

    Re: Your Opinions on inspiring a new student?

    Well, after dropping clarinet/bass clarinet as a freshman in the seventies in favor of the electric bass, I do recall a primary motivator: I wanted the girls to like me! It kinda worked.

    Re: Looper recommendations.

    The Electro Harmonix 360 works well for me. The two-switch 720 is over a hundred, but a good option. Buy used.

    Re: Weber Gallatin A

    I have an older maple Gallatin F and the fit, finish, tone and playability remain excellent. Lacks nothing but the fiddly bits, compared to the upper line Webers I've played.
