  1. Re: WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals...

    Going off topic, but I think some of these warnings are actually detrimental. Putting a warning sticker on things that are not dangerous in normal use, makes people numb to warnings that are...

    Re: Guitar Center

    Here is what I would like to see happen. GC goes belly up and is replaced by the "Mandolin Center". MC stores have a huge selection of mandolins at insanely low prices. They are staffed by...

    Re: Guitar Center

    A classic case of taking on too much debt ($1.3B). I have no love for GC but I dont want folks to lose their jobs. Sales were solid during COVID so maybe if the re-negotiate their debt they can...

    Re: Monroe's mandolin smashed to bits

    Near the end of the video Charlie seems to be using the same tool my dentist uses to scrape plaque off of my teeth! I have often wondered why Monroe didn't simply get a new mandolin that wasn't a...

    Re: Kentucky KM-252 A model anyone?

    When I first got the Ibanez, I didn't know any better and it sounded OK at the time. Nonetheless, I learned to play on it and it got into mandolin enough to want something better. Once I got the...

    Re: Seeking a virtual program where we can jam

    You lose about .8 milliseconds for every 100 miles the signal travels over fiber optic cable. You can't fix that (the speed of light in a non-vacuum). That delay gets a lot worse every time you go...

    Re: Kentucky KM-252 A model anyone?

    I have a Kentucky KM-250 that I bought here in the classifieds. I am quite happy with it. The construction seems good although the finish coloring seems a bit cheap. I also have a J. Bovier...

    Re: Transcribe or Amazing Slowdowner?

    If you just need something to slow down the music without altering pitch, the Music Speed Changer Android app is free and to me sounds just as good as ASD

    Re: Recent A model Mandolin

    Love the natural look; it really stands out. What is the price?
  13. Re: The merciless camera (recording ourselves as a reality check)

    I agree with this. When I am playing I am noticing all sorts of minor errors, but when I listen to the recording afterwards those "mistakes" are not as noticeable as I expected

    Newbie question. Is 45% RH considered ideal? What is the acceptable range?
  17. Re: Carbon Fiber Builder wants our input on a Carbon Fiber Mandol

    I would be interested in hearing more about the Ekoa material. What is it and how close does it sound to a wood instrument? If the tone was close to wood and the durability was much better than a...

    Re: Should I buy a Charango?

    The answer to "should I buy a ...?" is usually "yes". I have never heard of a charango before so Google to the rescue. It has a nice sound, sort of like a Uke but brighter. They are not expensive...

    Re: Learning Mando - Udemy??

    I tried the Improv Bluegrass course. It was easy to follow and was basically exercises, based on scales to help you learn the fret-board and create solos. Not a bad course but not a game changer.

    I started out with Sharon's beginner course. Note that she really stresses learning by ear and there is no TAB sheet music. I am using Mike Marshall's ArtistWorks course now and I think it has a...

    Re: impulse purchase - non-mando

    I was fortunate that the seller was 35 minutes away. I would not have done the deal if shipping was involved. I can see that if I later decide to sell it, that will become an issue
