    Sweet looking instrument.
  2. Re: Complete Bach 1st Cello Suite - ukulele in 5ths tuning

    Well done.

    I've been playing the Prelude on a baritone uke CGDA.
    It's amazing how much tone you can get from those little boxes with a light touch.

    Still waiting for my F Style Baritone Uke. Almost two months now.

    It's behind schedule, but there is a world wide pandemic going on after all.
    Hard to complain.

    Beautiful.

    I'm splitting my time between the Bach Prelude and a Vivaldi movement.

    Re: Recommendation for an electric?

    I've got an Eastwood Airline Mandola. Low price high quality.

    The mandos look very tempting.

    Re: Hora Octave Mandolas

    I have to push down harder than I would like to get a clean (buzz free) note.
    Nothing wrong with the setup.

    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.
  13. 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...

    Re: In praise of solid body mandolins.

    I've been busking with mine all summer and yeah the reaction has been enthusiastic to my tiny guitar.
  15. 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.

    Nice to know what was there.

    Re: Soft Picks ?

    Don't get the rubber picks IMO.
    I have some in various thickness and they are very harsh.
    Don't know why.

    Pro Plec is a nice choice.

    Re: Strap Locks

    The Grolsch washers work great. But Fender sells a similar product.

    Same thing and pretty cheap.

    Re: What plectra for the mandole?

    After many changes of mind I think D'Andrea Pro Plec 1.5mm give me the woody dark sound I like.
    Their cheap enough to just give it a try.
