    Re: DYN-M Preamp

    It also needs phantom power and is primarily designed to plug into a mixing desk. A “preamp” is only required if you’re intending to plug it into a desk without phantom or some other gizmo without it...

    Re: RIP Al Williams, founder of Calton Cases

    Don’t want to disrespect Al Williams in any way but I thought the founder of Calton Cases was Keith Calton? He built my first one in 1976 and retired a couple of years ago.

    Re: Off to Scotland

    I’d normally be in Scotland at the moment but we decided to tour Iceland instead - from where I’m writing this. Personally, I hate Skye. My memory of it goes back to the 1960s and I’ve visited it...

    Re: Robson A style tuners

    The starting price is well below that which I paid for an un-engraved set but I suppose it depends on what price they end up. The fleabay photo, however, isn’t of the item being sold it’s from Keith...

    Re: DYN-M pre-amp

    Assuming the Dyn-m you’re using is the P48, it’s a world away from the K&K. The Dyn-m is a condenser mic which requires phantom power. Plug it directly into a mixing desk and switch the phantom on....

    Re: My País Washburn Lyon and Healy mandolin

    I’d second having a word with Tevor at TAMCO in Brighton. He’s quite approachable and the only thing you have to loose is the price of a ‘phone call. Trevor sold a similar mandolin not that long ago....

  21. Re: Can anybody help me identify this instrument?

    Those tuners look to me as though they’re replacements (....or the manufacturer was saving money on screws).

    It looks like a bouzouki so it likely is a bouzouki. Italy isn’t that far from Greece!
