    Re: Volume boost pedal question

    Sounds like some good advice here.

    I come from three and a half decades of the gigging electric guitar world, so I've got a lot of effects experience. I like compression on my clean leads, and I...

    Re: I'm finally "getting it"!

    I have mad respect for the players who ONLY play the perfect notes (or the perfect space)... who are capable, virtuoso shredders, but have the restraint and vision to play exactly what's right, and...

    Re: Man....I had a blue guitar...

    I was eye-balling those blue Eastmans. I likey. But I likey the gold top Eastman mandos even more! I've had a bunch of blue guitars and none of them ever stuck around, so I question my ability to...

    Re: I'm finally "getting it"!

    Agreed! Before, I was going through the motions, playing the notes. But they felt sterile and soulless. I'm finally starting to make the instrument sound cheery, but at the same time giving it real...

    I hear ya there! I'm so tired of lugging guitar and PA stuff around. Hell... I put six acoustic guitars up for sale yesterday because I'm tired of taking care of TWENTY acoustic instruments alone...

    I'm finally "getting it"!

    I've been playing mandolin on and off for 10+ years. I'm mostly a guitar player, who's played all kinds of guitars, in nearly all music genres for the past 35 years. I was a classical guitar...

    Re: OM String recommendations

    Right on Jerry! I love Build Me Up From Bones! One of my favorite Sarah tracks. I've thought about working on that tune myself. She's also the reason that I picked-up the OM as well. I remember when...

    Re: OM String recommendations

    I'm currently playing D'Addario strings on my new Eastman MDO305. I don't find them too tinny, but we all have different ears I suppose.

    Just wanted to give your mention of Sarah Jarosz a big...

    Re: Where are the Eastman OMs?

    Yummay! I've seen a few gold top Eastman mandolas and mandos out there, and (being a guitar player), I've drooled a little bit over those. I need to buy another gold top Les Paul...

    Re: Where are the Eastman OMs?

    I was fortunate enough to visit Music Villa in Bozeman, MT less than a week after I'd driven the 140 miles there to pick up my MD515, and spied a OMD305 on the wall. I picked it up and had to have...
  13. Re: PSA: you should try an actual mandolin pick!

    I use sharp-tipped Dunlop Jazz III XLs exclusively on electric, as well as steel and nylon string acoustic guitars for many years. I want my pick tip sharp and the pick very stiff... for precision. I...

    Re: Eastman MD614 opinions?

    I think you're right about that. I played every Eastman in the store when I bought my 515, and the particular one I bought just jumped out at me... even though the 815 was the one that had my eye. I...

    Why would you want to control the actions of others? I get it... not the point you were trying to make. I just tend to roll with the "leave me be and I'll leave you be" philosophy. Not exactly en...

    Re: Why no narrow nut options?

    Yup... as a 35 year long guitar player, I much preferred the wide, radiused necks on the pair of American Breedloves that I had to my new Eastman MD515. It's TINY!!! I Do however like the necks on my...

    Ha ha! I do like the look of bowlbacks… but have never found them comfortable to sit or stand with, so maybe that'll keep me from going down that road. After I pick up a mandocello... I intend to set...

  21. The Three Bears? Or are they rabbits? (mando family pics)

    Just getting back into mandolin, so I bought a new Eastman MD515 less than two weeks ago. Liked it so much, I drove the 140 miles back to the same store (shout-out to Paul and the guys at Music Villa...

    Re: Do people ever change their strings?

    I keep an entire drawer full of strings for various instruments. I change them when I'm in the mood. I just recently purchasde several sets of D'Addario coated strings for mandolin, so I'm hoping...
