    Re: "Powerful/Loud!"

    I want it loud enough, but responsiveness and tone both across the strings and up the neck are more important to me than pure volume. Iíve played some mandolins that were very loud but the tone...

    Re: Pomeroy mandolins

    I have a Givens that has a very small neck. I believe the nut is barely an inch wide. I find it very comfortable to play. They are not the inexpensive though, but they sound fantastic.

    Re: Gibson A4 1921 Paddle Head

    Seems like a pretty fair price, but that crack looked pretty bad. I have a 1921 A4 as well and I love it. It has a woody growl on the low end and beautiful sparkling notes on the high end. One thing...
  5. Re: St. Anne's Reel -2019 National Mandolin Champion

    Congratulations on your win! You have a beautiful playing style. The melody just flows between the cross picking, mini-chords and bass runs all with a very strong note intonation and chime.

    Re: Tonedexter firmware question...

    I bought mine mainly for mandolin, so I uploaded the treble firmware before recording any wave maps. Since then, I have also recorded some guitar maps and used it without changing firmware and it...

    I play mandolin in a gypsy swing band named Cottonwood Club. I've written a few Swing number tunes like Swing 13 and Swing 17. Recently we played a show here in Helena, Montana with a few guest...

    Re: Why no narrow nut options?

    My 88 Givens A has a 1” nut and a narrow neck. Very easy to play and to access the upper frets.

    Re: Blue Chip meltdown

    There are 2 different types of Primtones. The textured ones don’t sound or feel much like the BC, but the smooth ones do in my opinion. Have you tried both?

    Re: LR Baggs radius?

    I own a radius and have never liked it. Difficult to get a natural sound without a lot of eq. For years I was playing with a Pava A style using a small condenser mic on a gooseneck placed over the...

    Re: D'Addario Strings - Ask Us Anything

    My 2 go to string sets are the GHS A270 and your EJ74’s. On most my mandolins I prefer the D’Addario but I really like that the GHS has an A string in a .16 gauge as opposed to the .15 in the EJ74. I...

    Visually stunning and it does sound wide open for such a new instrument. Nice work Skip!
  22. Re: Anyone Know where I can find a used Gilchrist

    I’ve played the one at Greg Boyd’s and it is outstanding. It almost ruined all other mandolins for me. Bright and full without being thin or harsh. The lowest action action I’ve ever seen. Everything...
