  1. Re: In praise of solid body mandolins.

    How about:
    6) 100% more control over your tone. No reliance upon sound engineers who may or may not know what a mandolin is supposed to sound like.
    7) Cool chord inversions available if you use a...

    Re: 8 string solid body playability

    Frets can be changed, and all mandolins need a set up from time to time. Solid body emandos are no exception. So don't let the need for a set up or even fret size dissuade you from buying a...

    Re: Acoustic pedal

    I was thinking of it not for sounding acoustic, I have enough acoustic mandolin family instruments that it's not necessary in that capacity. I was thinking of adding a bit of reverb (outboard of the...

    Re: Acoustic pedal

    I'd like to try one. If I can find a shop here that carries it, I'll give it a go.

    Re: Eastwood Cosey electric

    I'm trying to sort out why I like Pete Cosy's guitar but not the Eastwood mandolin version of it.

    Cosy's guitar is cool because it's an approximation of a mandolin, a mandolin scaled up if you...

  8. Re: Electronic tuner: guide, or unquestionable authority?

    These are both about guitars, but you get the idea.

    Tuning is relative because it has been equalised in western music. (Thank Bach for that.)
    Trust your ears, but agree about these things with...
  9. Re: What's this then -electric Bandurria?

    Daniel Lanois played one of these on U2's The Joshua Tree.
    Listen for the scratchy bit in the background. ;)

    Re: Eastman El Rey Video Review

    The e string issue is endemic. It cannot be avoided.
    Nothing will make an electric mandolin have the same output as an electric guitar. Electric mandolins have shorter scale lengths, and...

    No one has brought up the Brazilian 'guitarra baiana' yet.

    Re: Playing a five string vs a four

    I think of a 5 string emando as a mandola with a cheater 'e' course.

    Get yourself started with mandola chords/CGDA. Then start playing scales using all 5 strings. What you'll quickly sort out is...
  14. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    The whole idea of electrifying instruments was to amplify the acoustic sound. It follows on from other efforts: Archtops, Resonators, reverberation boxes, etc. Our own patron saint of the mandolin,...
  15. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    Love that Jason Anick video. I play a similar beast made by the same luthier, Paul Lestock, but I only aspire to that level of musicianship.

    Re: General Mandolin Post

    If we didn't discuss the minutiae what would we say to each other? :)

    Take all this advice with a grain of salt and use according to your situation.

    For example, I have NEVER humidified my...
  17. Re: What is the most mandolins you've owned at one time?

    I'm not sure what you're counting as a mandolin, but I currently have 8 mandolin family instruments (3 solid body electric, 2 F5s, 1 hollowbody electric, 1 mandola and 1 octave mandolin), 4 guitars...

    I think you're right. They are looking for a market. It's a solution in search of a problem.

    Re: I play a little guitar...

    I once described my dreadnought as a "six single string course octave mandolin in an alternate tuning."
    It got a laugh.

    Re: Notation for Long Black Veil

    Thanks Al! I'm having flashbacks now. :)

    I arranged that song a bit differently than most people do. I hit a Bm early rather than hanging on the G, and I never go to the D.
