    Re: Electric mandolin.

    mandolinita,
    You're getting some excellent advice and information here.

    It's worth keeping in mind your goal: "I have to play with amplified mandolin because I have to play on mp3 bases. Mandolin...

    Re: Where to go from here?

    Hi Bill,

    Where to go from here really depends on what you want to do with the EM8.

    My advice is to get a Line6 POD 2.0 off ebay or Reverb. They're cheap and they will allow you play with a lot...

    Re: Today's favorite stomp box...

    I have two minds about multi-effects units like yours. On one hand, I love the idea of one box 'to rule them all' as it were. On the other I am resisting the idea that I should have to learn how to...

    Do you find the 'marshall' setting better for electric mandolin than the 'vox' or 'fender' settings?

    You were lucky! I've had to go at this piece by piece learning on my own as I went, just trying to get good tone with what I had.

    I visited Arthur's home once more than a decade ago, when I was living in the Bay Area. He was hosting a mandolin get together.

    Re: Eastwood Rickenbacker

    I had a look at and a tinkle on a Ric mando at a NAMM show in 2010. (A long time ago now, admittedly.) I was unimpressed, especially for the price. Given the size of the neck and the string spacing...

    I have a Weber Alder #2 mandola with a 17" scale length. I use D'Addario DY-80s (octave mandolin) on it and tune it CGDA. Works great.

  20. Re: Protecting mandolins from changes in climate

    Find a good luthier/repair person in your part of Vermont as soon as you can. Once your instruments have adjusted to different temperatures and humidity levels, they will probably need a set up.

    I realize I'm a bit late to the discussion, but 5 courses does not require a multi-scale construction. Multi-scaled instruments are about making intonation easier to achieve both in set-up and...

    Re: Octave mando 4 or 5 courses?

    I agree with this statement entirely.

    I mostly play 5 course electric mandolins (CGDAE, one string per course), but I also play an 8 string (4 course) octave mandolin with a 19" (48.26cm) scale...
