  1. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    The last thing I would want from an electric mandolin would be for it to sound like an acoustic mandolin. Electric guitars generally do not sound like acoustic guitars. To the extent that 'sounding...
  2. Re: Rio Grande Mock 4 Pickup for Gibson EM200

    Hey there everyone, Happy Friday to you all! Bumping this back up to share what seems to be the ideal solution for the hum issue: EHX Hum Debugger. Works perfectly with no tone changes that I hear....
  3. Re: man I need a good tuner foot pedal model. not clip on

    Just talked with a pedal steel player using a BOSS needle style tuner, and said it works great for that set-up. We also had a good discussion of Peterson tuners, strobe-light vs digital and all...

    Re: Adventures in Clip-On Mics

    Late to this thread! I play in a similar situation to the OP - acoustic instrument along with drums, cajon, e-bass, pedal steel, accordion, electric banjo... occasional horns. Cops get called.

    I...

    Re: ‘Beach’ mandolin

    Small World: My travel/beach mando originally sold from Gryphon, but came to me very slightly used—not a scratch or nick to be found and still light blonde, 200 bucks. It's been over 10-years and...

    Re: Who doesn't memorize tunes/songs?

    Quoting f-d because this approach is also not memorization.
  7. Re: backpack straps with sternum strap?

    I believe you can purchase third-party sternum straps for backpacks without one already, so you might look at REI and other camping outfitters for this as an a la carte item.

    Re: Bought & I Don’t Even Play

    Did that same move one day, bought a mandolin and joined the cafe. Welcome! Philphool is absolutely right, and you'll want to spend some time re-visiting LH and RH mechanics as you adjust.

    Re: Over the Rainbow chord melody

    Amazing and wonderful and brilliant! Thank you Aaron for sharing this with us all. As a piano player, this is the competency level I still hope to achieve on the mandolin. Your Peghead Nation course...
  10. Re: Rio Grande Mock 4 Pickup for Gibson EM200

    Good point! The current strings are a nickel medium set from emando.com. The setup from The Music Emporium was perfect, so I asked about the strings and ordered sets to spare.

    Only issue is the...
  11. Re: Rio Grande Mock 4 Pickup for Gibson EM200

    It does seem to be the original electronics, and have been impressed with the knobs: clean sounding and satisfying to turn, tone cap is subtle and useful. They do like to be used, and it sounds...

    Re: Man I need a good tuner...

    Peterson StroboPlus HD is the one for me. Have used it on all the instruments for over 6 years now, including calibrating the key tracking for synths and tuning the spinet piano. I genuinely credit...
  16. Re: Sometimes you gotta go back to the basics...

    I treat my mandolin teacher as if they were a coach. There isn't a whole lot left for me to study or learn, but of course we always do find things. Most of the discussion is about efficient mechanics...

    Re: 4- vs 8-string electric mandos

    I recently joined the electric mandolin club. After a long debate about all the various build styles, and different ways we might amplify a mandolin, I chose an 8-string solid body, a classic Gibson...
  19. Re: My mandolin got eaten by a Stratocaster.

    Strat has not been picked up since getting this EM200 from our Classifieds last week. Also putting in a good word for the fantastic Vox AC30 as tube amp of choice for this household.

    Re: Mandolins have ruined my ears

    Yep. Truly enjoy the Pono, but its tone is nothing like the all Koa Kanile'a sitting next to it, and the price difference is as described. It was outside my budget, but after playing it I literally...

    Dot position aside, is there anything about the fret spacing that would hinder tuning in fifths?

    Always figured the popularity of using guitar tuning on a tenor came from The Kingston Trio. If I...

    It certainly is quite a challenge playing mandolin for a band with drums, e-bass, acoustic and electric banjo, multiple ukuleles and accordion to boot. Last gig was billed as an unplugged event yet...
