    I'm very happy to write a brief but much needed review of my Schertler pickup/preamp journey tonight.

    Re: DYN-M Preamp

    I hear you that it can be tough for the person on stage to hear, but I got finicky about my sound a few years ago after playing some gigs where the sound of whole band was dialed in. It's possible to...

    Re: DYN-M Preamp

    Thanks so much, Br1ck. I appreciate your experience and wisdom on this one.

    For the gigs I play, I often don't have a sound guy, or if I do I try to be as communicative as possible. Frequently,...

    Re: DYN-M Preamp

    Thanks so much, mandroid.

    I stuck with the Schertler after all. As I mentioned in my original thread, I love the DYN, and I couldn't help but think I was making an unnecessary mando pickup change...

    Re: Collings MT2 - Dixie Hoedown

    Thanks so much, Nic. I've got posts all over the Cafe about this awesome mandolin, so I won't repeat myself here. It's enough to say this instrument and I have an evolving, symbiotic relationship. it...

    Re: Collings MT2- Two Weeks in

    I know what you mean about it sounding new and/or somehow different each time you pick it up. Certainly, the shelf life of the strings has something to do with that, along with the end of summer and...

    Re: Solo Performance Gear

    Hey, Everyone:

    Thanks so much for indulging my gear situation. I've moved and shaken and here's what I have ended up with:

    Re: Sound descriptions

    Heya....

    I agree. Describing tone can be difficult, but the wine analogy makes a lot of sense. As a point of entry into this conversation, I'll say my Collings MT2 has evolved over the first two...

    I've been playing the heck out of it since that video two weeks ago, and am tempted to record it again and post it here to highlight any differences in the sound of this new MT2...

    Collings MT2- Two Weeks in

    Hi, Everyone:

    Tone galore over here in State College, PA. I’ve put many hours in on this MT2 and it is an infinite source of evolving tone, not to mention it is incredibly easy to play. This is...

    Re: DYN-M Preamp

    Yeah. Thanks, man.

    I checked it out and see pros and cons for each rig. I needed the preamp for my guitar too, so the Schertler DYN-M preamp alone wouldn't solve that. This decision doesn't have...

    The Schertler is very nice, but considering the price and what I need to do to optimize the sound... Schertler preamp, an impedence transformer... I am officially getting out of...

    I appreciate all the input and love this discussion. :-)

    I agree that relaxing is key to playing fast and loose. The opposite is to be all wound up and rigid, like concrete or something. However,...

    DYN-M Preamp

    Hi, EVeryone:

    I use the DYN-M pickup for my mandolin and am very fond of it. It consistently sounds very good, sometimes even when I'm not using an EQ.

    However, I am in search of more control...

    Thanks, everyone! I went all-in on the BOSE S1, the backpack, a new mic stand, a Behringer mixer (the 6 channel, four xlr inputs), and the LR Baggs preamp. It's a slew of things, and I'm broke, but...

    Re: My KM 1050 vs other Mandos

    I agree keeping it and playing the heck out of it for a while is the answer. It will reveal itself to you when you put time into it. If you can log a few hour or two hour sessions on it that will...
