    Grammy Mandolin Siting

    Lil Nas X sitting on a couch at the beginning of his performance seemed to be using the mandolin as a prop to get the tune going.

    Re: I built 2 F5s and a custom 3 point

    I 've been lucky enough to have played them all and these are top notch mandolins made by a really great human being!

    TC Polytune Mini is what I have on my pedalboard. It is very easy to use and I can see it clearly while playing in bright sunlight with sunglasses on.

    Grace Design preamps are the best I've found. I use the Felix.

    Check out the Grace Alex for single channel use.

    Re: Strap locks.

    I use rubber washers on all of my instruments. They are inexpensive, work great, and you can get them at the hardware store too.

    I have a Grace Felix that I use for mandolin and dobro and it is by far the best preamp that I have ever used. The amount of control on each channel is more than enough to get the job done.
