    Re: Mandolins in the works

    I've been looking at the bench photo again... (bad idea for me!)

    The mahogany LP at the back... What scale length is that? Looks a bit longer than usual, which piques my interest. :)

  2. Re: Good idea / Bad idea ?? Suede back

    Waylon Jennings covered his Tele in tooled leather. I always thought it looked pretty cool. I doubt it has any measurable effect on a Tele.

    Re: Goldtone Long Scale Mando-Guitar

    I know Daniel Lanois used one to add scratchy rhytm tracks to either (or both) U2's Unforgettable Fire and Joshua Tree.
  4. Re: 5 string electric mandolin string info

    I've used D'addario XL's and Ernie Ball Super Slinky's.

    11p 16p, 24w, 42w, and 56w

    These go on both my 14.25" JBovier EMC5 and my 15" Arrow G5. I have to say the Ernie Ball strings were less...

    Re: Mandolins in the works

    Hey Andrew,

    Tell us about the yellow one. :)

    I like yellow emandos and yellow strats. I have no idea why.

    Re: Six string electric

    Back in the late 80s for about 5mins Alvarez made a 9 string guitar. Totally melted my butter. Likewise Martin made (may still be making) a Roger McGuinn model guitar with 7 strings (the 7th being...

    Re: Six string electric

    I have had those kinds of thoughts myself.

    Best of both worlds! Enjoy!

    Re: Rubner tuners are back

    A couple years ago I put a set on the mando you made for me. So you can stop worrying about that one. ;)

  11. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    My usual 'mandola' is actually an Arrow G5 hollow body electric 5 string mandolin with a 15" scale length. It solves a lot of stretching/fingering issues.

    My 'real' mandola is a Weber Alder #2,...

  13. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    I don't have the mandola tab, no. I do have the guitar tab though. I was thinking about putting it in TEF and then trying to convert it from guitar to mandola.
    I caught the A part by repeated...
  14. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    tmsweeney is right about sharing a lot of sonic space with the guitar.

    I've been playing along to Eric Skye's "Kathryn by the Delaware" on the mandola. I can match the pitch of his guitar part on...

    Re: Us newbies are cracking on ;)

    I find the Page 3 shots distracting too. The instruments are porn enough! I could stare at them for hours. Sorely tempted to ask for a 5 string telecaster shape with 15" scale length!

    Daniel
  16. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    Slap a capo on the octave mandolin at the fifth fret and have a go!

    The scale will be a bit shorter than the usual 16" or 17" but the fingering will be the same.

    Re: In praise of solid body mandolins.

    How about:
    6) 100% more control over your tone. No reliance upon sound engineers who may or may not know what a mandolin is supposed to sound like.
    7) Cool chord inversions available if you use a...

    Re: 8 string solid body playability

    Frets can be changed, and all mandolins need a set up from time to time. Solid body emandos are no exception. So don't let the need for a set up or even fret size dissuade you from buying a...

    Re: Acoustic pedal

    I was thinking of it not for sounding acoustic, I have enough acoustic mandolin family instruments that it's not necessary in that capacity. I was thinking of adding a bit of reverb (outboard of the...

    I'd like to try one. If I can find a shop here that carries it, I'll give it a go.

    Re: Eastwood Cosey electric

    I'm trying to sort out why I like Pete Cosy's guitar but not the Eastwood mandolin version of it.

    Cosy's guitar is cool because it's an approximation of a mandolin, a mandolin scaled up if you...

  24. Re: Electronic tuner: guide, or unquestionable authority?

    These are both about guitars, but you get the idea.

    Tuning is relative because it has been equalised in western music. (Thank Bach for that.)
    Trust your ears, but agree about these things with...
  25. Re: What's this then -electric Bandurria?

    Daniel Lanois played one of these on U2's The Joshua Tree.
    Listen for the scratchy bit in the background. ;)
