    Re: You never know who plays mando....

    Good to know the mandolin exists within The First Degree. Guess that makes all of us 2nd Degree Bacons, right?

    Re: Shout out to Collings

    Whaddya know? It does have a radius, but nowhere near as curved as the Weber, and so assumed it was flat. Not so! Thanks for the heads up.

    Re: Shout out to Collings

    I joined the Collings club a few months back and could not be happier. Had some concerns about the neck profile, and flat fingerboard. Neither has been an issue, and it has become the daily player...

    Re: Should I be insulted?

    No reason to be insulted just because she/he chooses to be elsewhere during mandolin time. In this household, 2/3 dogs could not care less while Wiley-dog maintains serious opinions about instruments...

    Re: Using a DI and Preamp

    I keep a Radial ProDI in the gig bag as a passive DI just-in-case. It has enough resistance to work with a piezo p/u to send a useful signal FOH.

    Re: Sold my Collings and got a Pava

    We are all different in size and shape, so how could there be an ideal neck profile? I recently acquired a Collings MF and even through I'd played many before, knew the shape felt good, there was the...
  8. Re: Emando players: What do you want in an amp?

    LoudBox Mini works for me! As said, it is lightweight, has good tone, multiple inputs/types, and loud enough for most any gig purpose. EM200 goes into a small pedalboard and then into the 1/4" input...
  9. Re: Accompanying a guitarists who tunes down

    Cb... song was actually in B major.

    I do want to say that the songwriter is very talented and most any of us would likely be happy backing him up. He's going to do well in Nashville, I hope.
  10. Re: Accompanying a guitarists who tunes down

    Gig Report: Played a Weber Bitterroot with a Radius p/u into a DI for FOH mix, no amp no monitor. Venue is a mid-sized BBQ place with a proper stage and sound engineer. The opener brought along a...
  11. Re: Accompanying a guitarists who tunes down

    ^This my plan for tomorrow! Going to work myself in between the vocal lines, and do my best to anticipate the changes/add dynamics/fills and the take the occasional solo. Last time we played it was...
  12. Re: Accompanying a guitarists who tunes down

    This reminded me of last gig when he capo'd on the 1st fret and played out of 'C chord'. I went into it by ear, closed position and only at the very end did it occur to me it was in C-major all...
  13. Accompanying a guitarists who tunes down

    Showed up to a gig with a local singer/songwriter only to find out he tunes down a half-step. :crying: A 'cheat-sheet' was provided, but I ended up just hanging onto closed positions and not looking...

    Re: Some good practice

    Just did this challenge at a Black Friday gig. Sat in with a talented Singer/Songwriter who informed me on arrival that he tunes down a half-step. Played four hours of originals and covers, all...

    Re: Michael A Lewis Mandolins

    It is good to hear from you, Michael through we all wish the news was different. You have been in my thoughts lately, and that will continue. Take care of yourself, and all those around you.

    Re: Vulfpeck - Thile appearance

    Really enjoying listening to the interplay between Thile and Koz, especially how well they supported groove throughout their improv. Seeing the band sit down to watch was a nice element. "You can...
  20. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    Gig tonight, and as the only soloist for our hour-and-a half set, I'll be bringing the EM-200 as an alternate tone to break up the mandotony. Songs range from 'Grass to Grunge, and obviously will...

    Re: Tascam DR-05 vs Zoom H2N

    Going to throw out another suggestion, the Tascam DP-006 Portastudio. It is only slightly larger than the others, runs off batteries, stereo condenser mics. Advantage is that is is a multi-track...

    Re: In praise of solid body mandolins.

    When the banjo player in the band switched to electric, there was no other road to take. We have moved on to the amplifier wars, and an AC30 most always gets its way.

    Re: What has your mandolin been called?

  25. Re: Two point semi/hollow electric mando w/ magnetic pickup

    2-point beauty is a worthy consideration, but another solid reason to choose the EM200 is that it is not semi-hollow. I greatly enjoy being able to use ample volume and overdrive without any concerns...
