    Re: In search of a mandolin...

    Couldn't agree more. You could probably get a flight, car, hotel and mandolin of your dreams for 10 grand. Just please wear your mask and try to physical distance. Alright, I'll get off my soapbox...

    Re: Pick Question

    I guess we should do some experimentation with a decibel meter and some kind of robot arm to play with the exact angle and force. Then we could try all different thicknesses, shapes and materials.

    Re: Tuning up

    A good friend of mine has an octave mandolin, tuned in unison, that he Capos at Mandola tuning for solo stuff. He says the lower tension is more comfortable. He's a bass player.

    Re: Tuning up

    Yes, or get a Mandola. It has the same tuning (CGDA) as the Soprano only an octave lower. The longer scale makes it easier to Capo to wherever your singer sings.

    Re: Tuning up

    Just use a Capo. It's a tool that is available to you.

    The BG police will get over it.

    Re: How Long do your J74Strings last?

    I do string changes every three months (four times per year) or sooner if need be, which isn't often. I like the sound of broken in strings though.
  19. Re: key of G: #G (0023) etc what does it mean?

  22. Re: key of G: #G (0023) etc what does it mean?
