  1. 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: 8 string solid body playability

    I'm a big Eastwood fan.
    I have a bass I bought years ago that is is still perfect to me.
    I have their Airline Mandola and I'm really playing that one hard. I love it.

    If I had money I'd fill up...

    Re: Eastwood Cosey electric

    Their return policy is generous.
    The one I had was well made, but I just couldn't bond with it.

    Re: Fixing a microphonic pickup

    I potted an electric bass pickup years ago.
    It worked and was pretty easy to do.
    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.
  9. 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.
  10. Re: looking to move, but I have no clue where ?.

    I love Brooklyn.
    There is no place like it.
    It's so not like Manhattan yet close by.

    I requested they make a 5 string. That would be awesome.
    Unlikely they would comply.
    If the nut was a little wider I would try to convert mine but I think it's too tight.

    I've been playing my Airline mandola as a 4 string and getting a lot of compliments. It just feels better to me.

    This one sounds very good but I can't get past the look.

    Yeah Rudy's is a short walk from there.
    I haven't been there in a long time. If you can't buy it's no fun.

    Re: De Wick - Iucci mandolins

    FWIW I pass by that address very often.

    Nice to know what was there.

    Old NY is still there just under the surface if you look for it.

    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.

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

    Same thing and pretty cheap.

    Re: electric mandolin strings?

    I have odd intonation problems when using guitar strings.

    Emando.com nickel strings made the problems go away.
