    Re: 3 instruments-One mic

    I agree with the suggestion that you play around with your positioning of the mic. You'll probably find a sweet spot for each instrument. I've even had good results with the old stand-by...

    Re: Help with video conferencing

    Good luck on simultaneous playing over any medium. There will be a time latency lag that will be very noticeable especially if you are not in adjacent rooms. You will be better served with file...
  5. Re: Wegen (bluegrass) picks without grip holes available?

    If this were April 1st, I'd point out that the picks with holes in them have reduced wind resistance, allowing you to pick faster! I'm pretty sure Wegen will make them for you without the holes.

    Re: Breaking in or Opening Up

    I have a friend whose mandolin didn't get broken in, it got broken down by his fingernail & pick drag on the top. He claims it sounds better than when it had a pristine finish, but I find that there...

    Re: Eva Scow - After You've Gone

    "Working from home" does allow one to find plenty of musical wormholes to go down on YouTube - and this is a good one!

    Re: When You First . . .

    First was really the Dawg, but I played more like Levon. When I starting playing more seriously, It was Jethro's final sessions with Don Stiernberg playing rhythm guitar that really lit my bulb.

    Re: A new prototype mandolin

    Graham - I always like to see non-traditional design elements and this is a real looker. Agree with the comments about the tailpiece, but that is an easy fix. Would love to hear a sound sample!

    Re: is an arm rest a benefit to technique ?

    I like the fact that I don't have a sharp crease in my right arm when I use an armrest. Also in the summer, it protects the finish from sunscreen, insect repellant, and sweat - of course, there are...

    The luthier for this instrument - a Florentine guitar (?) - [I]may [I] have salvaged a Gibson guitar neck and bridge for this creation... or just slapped a decal on the headstock.

  18. Re: D'Addario's new Chris Thile signature mandolin pick

    I like the black Wegen picks in general, because they have a darker tone than the white ones. :grin:

    Re: Why do people only sell the great ones?

    In my ultimate tone quest, I've got my # 1 and a slightly different #2. I don't mind auditioning instruments. If recycled, it often doesn't have the tone that turns me on when I play it (although...
