    Re: Fender mandolin and amp

    That's very good to know! I brought a few small amps with me from the US when I moved to the UK (and then to France), and I have been constantly toying with he idea of bumping up the intenral...

    Re: Simplifier clone

    Cool.

    Have you tried running the reverb through the effects loop?

    Do you find the 'marshall' setting better for electric mandolin than the 'vox' or 'fender' settings?

    (I tend to like...

    Re: Today's favorite stomp box...

    You were lucky! I've had to go at this piece by piece learning on my own as I went, just trying to get good tone with what I had.
    When I was younger, I had a '65 Fender Bandmaster head and a 67...

    Re: RIP Arthur Stern

    I visited Arthur's home once more than a decade ago, when I was living in the Bay Area. He was hosting a mandolin get together.

    I got to see his stained glass artwork at his studio. Amazing...

    Today's favorite stomp box...

    I don't know how long I've had a DOD FX-10 Bi-FET Preamp, It certainly sat around in cupboards and boxes for a couple decades. But today it is my favorite stomp box.

    Re: Eastwood Rickenbacker

    I had a look at and a tinkle on a Ric mando at a NAMM show in 2010. (A long time ago now, admittedly.) I was unimpressed, especially for the price. Given the size of the neck and the string spacing...

    Re: EastWOOD electric mandolin

    I have strung a concert uke as a mandola. I forget which company does this, but there is a specific set for CGDA tuning.

  13. Re: the Lloyd Loar F5s: in the 1920s and today

  14. Re: Flight Pathfinder Tenor Uke as Mandola

    I have a Weber Alder #2 mandola with a 17" scale length. I use D'Addario DY-80s (octave mandolin) on it and tune it CGDA. Works great.
    The samme guage strings should work for your Pathfinder.

    Find a good luthier/repair person in your part of Vermont as soon as you can. Once your instruments have adjusted to different temperatures and humidity levels, they will probably need a set up.

    Re: Octave mando 4 or 5 courses?

    I realize I'm a bit late to the discussion, but 5 courses does not require a multi-scale construction. Multi-scaled instruments are about making intonation easier to achieve both in set-up and...

    Re: Octave mando 4 or 5 courses?

    I agree with this statement entirely.

    I mostly play 5 course electric mandolins (CGDAE, one string per course), but I also play an 8 string (4 course) octave mandolin with a 19" (48.26cm) scale...

    Re: New carbon fiber mandolin builder

    I paid $4000 for my Mix F5 used in 2013. Not sure what its resale value is now, but $5000 would certainly be tempting. I play 5 string now almost exclusively.

    I gigged the Mix F5 for several...
