    Re: Tonedexter firmware question...

    According to the article I linked to above, the firmware also affects the frequency ranges for the notch filter and equalizer.
  3. Re: The long, arduous journey of Silverangel #438 - with a happy

    Now your Silver Angel has a cool backstory! :)

    Ken is building an Econo A for me and he has been amazing to work with. I'm eager to get my hands on my Silver Angel, so hopefully mine won't have a...

    Re: Eastman MD-305

    Not necessarily. I've heard some of the better dealers say that they've sent some of the lower end mandolins back due to manufacturing issues. A good dealer who performs a setup on a mandolin before...

    I wish we could help you out! Honey Amber Collings MF mandolins have been calling out to me lately!
  8. Re: Music for duets for me (mandolin) with my brother (mandola)

    I think mandolin and cello would go wonderfully together! (I just did a quick search and readily found music books with violin and cello duets. Since the violin is tuned the same as the mandolin,...

    Re: New mandolin for an old man

    Congratulations on taking up a new instrument!

    Since you're concerned about small hands and less finger flexibility, you need to try different instruments yourself and see what might feel best...

    Re: Rogue RM-100A A-Style Mandolin

    Rob Meldrum has noted that these mandolins are arriving better set up these days. I bought two about Christmas time for a couple of my grownup sons to mess with and I thought the setups were good...
  11. Re: Best mandolin wall stand, e.g. hook etc?

    String swings are u-shaped but curved upward. Mine also have end caps that you have to lift the mandolin over. I just went over and experimented with mine. I can't imagine a mandolin coming off the...

    Re: Loud, or Not So Loud?

    Re: Back to f-holes?

    Why f-holes? I just watched some of your YouTune videos and the oval hole mandolins you have sound good. (Thanks for sharing those videos! I enjoyed them.)

    Re: Wow, what a flip!

    I'd like to have an old Gibson mandolin someday, but I just can't tell when an old Gibson is priced reasonably and if it might have some structural problems that will be expensive repairs. The good...
  16. Re: Best mandolin wall stand, e.g. hook etc?

    Any of the instrument wall hangers can attach to a stud or not.

    I hadn't hung a wall hanger in a while but put up two last month. I had forgotten how smooth and easy String Swing's instructions...
  17. Re: Best mandolin wall stand, e.g. hook etc?

    The "hang it or not" question has been EXTENSIVELY argued on this forum lol. You might do some searches to see lots of discussion over pros and cons. Here's a recent multi-page discussion.

    The selection available from Internet shopping is tough to beat, but I know folks who go to Best Buy to try out camera gear, then order from B&H or Adorama to save the taxes. I'm sure the same thing...

    Lol. I really struggle remembering some fiddle tunes - they can sound so similar, and folks plays them so differently. When I'm trying to memorize a tune, I try to get the chords in my head first,...

    Re: Who doesn't memorize tunes/songs?

    I would encourage tune memorization from day one. It is nice to be able to play tunes with just you and your mandolin - no music stand, no sheet music.

    The mandolin is VERY flexible, whether you want to play melody, chords, melodic-type fill. A great way to expand your mandolin learning is to just take song books with songs you like and learn the...

    Re: I Don't Do Tab

    Playing by ear is great, but my least satisfying musical interactions have been with musicians who can't read standard notation. They can be very good players, but trying to sample new stuff with...
