  1. Re: So... They seem to think I'm starving and homeless?

    FWIW

    I'm wrapping up the busking season here in NYC (man it's cold).
    I started in May and did it 2 or 3 times a week for the last 7 months.

    I learned a lot also (as Chris Calley above said)....

    Re: I've Got A Feeling

    According to my bathroom scale 3.2 lbs

    It lighter than my Eastwood E Mandola & heavier than my Epiphone MM-30 mandolin.

    It's has a solid feel to it.

    I've Got A Feeling

    Hope it’s not a bad Feeling® (end of pun)

    In another post I was admiring the Goldtone Mando Guitar when I realized that the Chinese maker Feeling made the same thing for half the price. I really...
  4. Re: Emando players: What do you want in an amp?

    Telling an amp manufacturer how to create an amp is way over my head.

    But I always look for warmth and cheap in an amp.

    Re: Natural talent vs practice

    When I was a kid (in the 60's) I thought the musicians I admired were special people touched by the gods.
    I would never be able to be that.

    Now I know they just invested more time into it than me...

    Re: Goldtone Long Scale Mando-Guitar

    I compared the photos from Gold Tone's website and the ebay ads and they are identical photos (except head stock name).

    This is of course not proof of anything.

    But my guess is that neither...

    Re: Eastwood Airline solid electric mandola

    I love mine.
    I've been busking all summer (4 strings) and the feedback (from people) has been great.

    Emando.com sells normal, light and extra light gauges.
    Normal sounds the best but hurt my...

    Thanks for the links, but I'm not following what this has to do with Gold Tone Mando-Guitar.
    What are they playing? Looks like a great instrument.

    Re: Goldtone Long Scale Mando-Guitar

    Thanks.
    I'll keep that in mind.
    The jury is still out for me, but the sound intrigues me. So maybe early January I'll give it a try.

    Any one have any experience with these?
    Search gives me no hits so I'm guessing not many do.

    Re: Naming your Mandolin

    Same situation with my mom.
    She gave me what little she had when she passed and I put it towards an instrument I named after her.

    Re: Blackstar fly practice amp

    I love mine. The sound is extraordinary.
    Consider getting the extension speaker. It makes a big difference.

    Also: an EQ pedal really lets you shape the sound.
  17. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    Mandolin never happened for me even after years of trying.
    Mandola is just perfect in every way.

    A non musician woman a few weeks ago asked me why my mandolin had a deeper voice.
    It was nice to...

    I'm a big Eastwood fan.
    I have a bass I bought years ago that is is still perfect to me.

    I potted an electric bass pickup years ago.

    As I recall you could speak into that pickup and record your voice! Now that's microphonic.

    Re: baritone ukulele with guitar string

    I'm using nylon guitar strings on a 20" scale bari uke tuned CGDA.

    It's a perfect fit really, tension and tone wise. I've giged with it. The sound is unique.

    I think it's a Bari-ukeadolatar.
  25. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    My EDola has a very "woody" sound to it through a Blackstar amp and some eq.

    It's really unique. Not like a guitar at all.
