    Re: Mandolin As A New Direction

    @CBFrench, it's great you still love and play acoustic guitar. *Any* instrument that brings you joy is a wonderful gift and just because one doesn't get your motor running, so to speak, well, that's...

    Eastman re-fret in progress

    The Eastman MD815v (2009) I got from an old friend last May had some seriously worn frets, and when I got the Northfield, with the larger "guitar size" frets, I decided to put the same thing on the...

    Re: Modern F4 options?

    Not answering your questions (and whatever circle I'm in does not intersect "mandolin cognoscenti"), but I'll toss out that while not as expensive as a Collings, and not an F-4, there's a Northfield...

    Re: What is a C2 chord?

    If you find a chord book, even a guitar one, with a C2 in it, just post a picture of the fingering.

    If you're writing a chart, then I'd ask (plead) that if you want a Cadd9 or a Csus2 or even a...

    Re: What is a C2 chord?

    My understanding is that C2 is not Cadd9, which is just what it says, and C9, as noted, is built off the dominant. Instead, C2 is almost always a shorthand (?) for Csus2, which does *not* have the...

    Re: Has COVID affected your MAS?

    I wasn't even playing mandolin before 2021, so while I seem to have avoided catching the pandemic, I did catch a case of MAS... I now have 2 mandolins and probably a dozen mando-focused albums, a...
  9. Re: Logic Pro: Best effects for mandolin recording

    I have only been playing for about half a year, and not done a lot of mando recording, save my "video exchange" submissions, so don't have any rules or [project] templates in place (yet).

    But, for...

    Re: Essential David Grisman

    Nice article, thanks.

    I've got many of those, and a few I had as LPs, but all of those went to the library when my turntable died years ago and parts weren't available. (It was only 30 years old,...
  11. Re: Recorded mandolin music now in the public domain

    If you click on the song link, on my browser at least, there's a list of file formats on the right for "download" from FLAC to MP3. Just click on the MP3 one and, again, on my [Chrome, Mac OS]...
  12. Re: Can you use a Tone-Gard with an armrest?

    As @phydaux and @Mandobart said, yes. No problem. The armrest is generally a semi-permanent thing, and goes on first, of course.

    Whether all of this fits in the case is another matter. My Eastman...

    Bach Invention No. 11, BMV 782

    Our son was visiting a bit over the Christmas holiday and before he left this morning, I was able to put a mandolin into his hands for a little bit and we recorded this at home yesterday. This...
  14. Re: buzzing - truss rod, setup, or fret leveling?

    The bridge is too low seems obvious from the description and picture, at least as much as I can tell. But I would get the setup PDF that is frequently mentioned here and just do a complete and proper...

    Re: Eastman MD-404BK Mandolin Frets

    My '09 815v has small frets and there is very little left of them. They've been leveled at least twice (last time by me).

    When I see a warm-enough stretch after the holidays to be able to spend...

    The differences are subtle, but if you don't hear *any* difference, you may need a different listening setup. And, YouTube's compression algorithm may have a lot to do with it, so make sure you have...

    Re: Dunlop Primetone picks

    I've been using the Primetone picks for a few years on my guitar, the 1.5mm smooth, large triangles. The have a slightly darker tone than the "grip" models. Definitely my favorite for that use. (I...

    Re: microphone feedback cures

    I didn't quite clarify that it's the small lobe at the back of the polar pattern that can create problems. It the mic is pointed down, it may not be an issue, but I prefer cardioid patterns (SM57,...

    Re: microphone feedback cures

    Super/hyper-cardioid mics do have a small lobe in their polar pattern. I've found that can be a problem if the gain is high and/or there's any PA or stage monitor at enough volume to be picked up....

    Re: Microphones for home recording

    The SM57 is a good mic, especially for live use, and, TBH, most mandolins do not really put out a wide frequency range, so it can work. It does have a low output (sensitivity), and will require a...

    Re: Recommendations For Headphones?

    I wouldn't call them "terrible" but they have a limited lifetime. It's some sort of thin "pleather" IIRC and that has the advantage of being relatively pliable (good seal) that can be easily cleaned...
