    Re: Zouk + Capo

    I had a similar problem with my Octave mandolin. The builder suggested a banjo capo for an arched fingerboard.

    Re: jams with friends during covid

    I've been picking with a buddy almost every week. We choose a rain free day (Seattle) and play in my back yard. Both of us are cautious and believe we're being safe.

    Re: Tuscon???

    Hey Steve,

    This is just bad timing.

    Had I known about this camp, I would have scheduled my trip for next weekend rather than this weekend. It's too late for changes this week:)

    Re: Remic microphones

    Anytime I see a cable with XLR on one end and a mini on the opposite I get the impedance mismatch blues. Not always, but often it's a cable to be careful with.

    Re: Mandolin Try-out Etiquette

    I've traded mandolins in jams more times than I can remember. In each case, mine came back to me in the same shape as when I handed it off. The irony is that I got a new guitar once and an old friend...

    Western Montana???

    I'll be in Montana until about the 21st. Are there any open jams that I should consider. I'll be based in the Missoula area, but have car and mandolin.
