    Re: Tonedexter firmware question...

    I bought mine mainly for mandolin, so I uploaded the treble firmware before recording any wave maps. Since then, I have also recorded some guitar maps and used it without changing firmware and it...

    Re: "Swing" number tunes

    I play mandolin in a gypsy swing band named Cottonwood Club. I've written a few Swing number tunes like Swing 13 and Swing 17. Recently we played a show here in Helena, Montana with a few guest...

    Re: Why no narrow nut options?

    My 88 Givens A has a 1” nut and a narrow neck. Very easy to play and to access the upper frets.

    Re: Blue Chip meltdown

    There are 2 different types of Primtones. The textured ones don’t sound or feel much like the BC, but the smooth ones do in my opinion. Have you tried both?

    Re: LR Baggs radius?

    I own a radius and have never liked it. Difficult to get a natural sound without a lot of eq. For years I was playing with a Pava A style using a small condenser mic on a gooseneck placed over the...

    Re: D'Addario Strings - Ask Us Anything

    My 2 go to string sets are the GHS A270 and your EJ74’s. On most my mandolins I prefer the D’Addario but I really like that the GHS has an A string in a .16 gauge as opposed to the .15 in the EJ74. I...

    Re: New Kelley mandolin violin style

    Visually stunning and it does sound wide open for such a new instrument. Nice work Skip!
  15. Re: Anyone Know where I can find a used Gilchrist

    I’ve played the one at Greg Boyd’s and it is outstanding. It almost ruined all other mandolins for me. Bright and full without being thin or harsh. The lowest action action I’ve ever seen. Everything...

    I hear most of that. Some Mandolins sound much more loud out front. This mandolin provides great feedback for the player too. It is really a fantastic mandolin. It is the first mandolin I’ve owned...

    New to me AL Smart F5

    I’m also curious about Skip and Elkhorns. Played plenty of Collings. The new torriefied MTs sound pretty nice to my ears. You might consider Pava as well. I have a Pava A that is very nice especially...

    I have a Pava I bought used a few years ago. It was still really new and green when I got my hands on it. I noticed then it took a good half hour or more of steady playing to really “wake up”. After...
