    Whatcha up to?

    OK. No gigs for a while here in France.
    I'm off work now too.

    The double string course on an acoustic mandolin is (or perhaps 'was' now because the state of the art of lutherie is much improved in 125 years) necessary to create enough power to hear the mandolin...

    Re: JBovier

    I've had my EMC-5 for nearly a decade as well and I love it. I just wish Jeff was still doing emandos. I need a backup!

  5. Re: counter-intuitive use of octave pedal

    Hi Stew,
    Given the color of this particular Mooer pedal, I'd say they copied the Boss circuit.
    I would not say I was impressed by the tonal character of the octave output. So subtle is better.

  6. Re: Do You Play ALL of Your Mandolins Regularly?

    No, I don't. Currently my F5s (a Vessel and a Mix) are languishing in their cases while I practice and gig with electric mandolins.

    I don't often play my Weber Alder #2 mandola, so I couldn't...
  7. counter-intuitive use of octave pedal

    Hello folks,

    I bought a cheap Mooer octave pedal last summer because I needed something for when my guitarist and I covered Wish You Were Here. The low octave helped flesh things out while he...

    Re: Neck bowing in an odd place

    Thanks all.

    To be honest, I had not thought that a forward angled headstock would be a design feature. That staple has always driven me nuts. I don't think I have changed the strings more than 3...

    Neck bowing in an odd place

    Hello all,

    I thought I might ask for a little advice about a bowing neck.

    I have a Fender FM-988, 8 string electric mandolin whose tone I love, but whose neck is annoying me.

    The extra long...

    Update:
    Ran mono through the PA last night in rehearsal. The amps I chose for the living room don't really blend well with my guitar player and bassist. But the Fender-y ones worked well.

    Emulation v circuitry

    Howdy all,

    Maybe I should have called this 'chips v tubes'.

    In my search for affordable, light, good sounding emando amplification I have begun to focus on emulation.

    Re: Thank you Scott and Dan!

    You guys must have had a very rough couple of days. I hope all further upgrades are kinder to you!

    Thank you for creating, maintaining, and improving our favorite spot on the Internet.

  17. Re: What's the longest scale mandolin you have seen?

    My Arrow G5 (5 string emando CGDAE) has a 15" scale length. It makes going back and forth between it and other mandolins other instruments a bit risky. I over reach on the shorter scales and under...

    I wonder if Jethro Burns ever considered one of these. I bet he would have made it sing.

    Re: Some Questions on New Purchase

    I have a Hathway octave mandolin with a 19" scale. I tune it GDAE, an octave lower than a mando. D'Addario make an octave mandolin set with 12's as the top e. Works for me.

  21. Re: Info on J. Bovier mandolins, please

    I have one of about 250 of Jeff's JBovier solid body electric mandolins. Met him at NAMM in 2006 or 2007 when these had first come out.

    I love my EMC-5 and wish he was making more. Jeff was...

    Re: Electric Octave Mandolin. 4 vs 8

    Hi Miles,

    Expect a solid body electric octave mandolin to remind you a lot of an electric guitar. It won't matter whether it has 8 strings or four (or 5).

    Re: Schwab #79

    Indeed very cool.

    Went to 5 strings when I bought my JBovier EMC-5. At the time I made a promise to myself to get comfortable with the low C and not fixate on the top 4 strings. That was one of...
  25. Re: Favorite Electric Mandolin Albums or Artists?

    Playing 5 string I am really enjoying the low end of the instrument. I've probably always been a natural mandola player, but one has to arrive at these things in stages I guess.
