    Re: Dremel attachments

    If it is an older dremel I wouldn't stress it too much. The coupler from the motor to the bit is plastic tubing that is grooved and not available any more. I have the last one in mine and don't want...

    Re: Help!!! Sanding High Gloss Down to "Satin"

    You shouldn't hurt anything. Start with some 0000 steel wool and see if you like the look. Want more satin get some fine sandpaper. The finish is most likely thick if it is an inexpensive instrument...

    Re: Tonedexter firmware question...

    I have found 250 hz to be the perfect point for mandolin to drop off lows. I have talked to several builders of preamps over many years, to see if they would incorporated this, no one was interested....

    Re: Strange intonation issue with new strings

    I have had bad strings several times over the years. When I bought strings by the dozen, I have had a bad bunch in the dozen. Way more than one string.

    Re: How would you do this?

    When I can't use the old tuner bushing I have used the plastic that things are packaged in. I cut it in strips that are just shorter than the bushing circumference. If it is too tight I will cut off...

    Re: New mandolin for an old man

    Your rental mandolin is most likely not set up well. A well setup mandolin will play easily and most likely after playing this your fingers will thank you and you will be able to play longer, and...

    Re: Question about Acoustic Amps and PreAmps

    I have a stand alone phantom, used it for years and works great. Usually only use it for large diaphragm condensers tho.

    Re: Who doesn't memorize tunes/songs?

    I don't blame you, I thought you took the comment quite well. I was talking to both sides. Just thought I would try to stop something before it got started. Good job all, carry on.

    Re: Who doesn't memorize tunes/songs?

    Let's stay away from the gender bashing here please.

    The folks I play with, some read music, a lot don't. Those that read very rarely bring it out in a jam unless it is something new they have not...

    Re: Gibson mandolin hope to find info

    My first good mandolin was from this same time frame, it was a very nice sounding mandolin. Nice score, I would gladly play many times over the $5 your friend paid for another.

    Re: Question about Acoustic Amps and PreAmps

    I am sure most new equipment, especially a board would have 48v phantom. I use a Carvin Stagemate, it does not have phantom. I play weekly boat cruises and set up a smal 6 channel (new) Peavey, it...

    Re: Who doesn't memorize tunes/songs?

    There are plenty of tunes that I can't start, sometimes can, but can play if someone starts or hums the tune. Tunes seem to change slightly from region to region, reading from music I have not see it...

    Re: Question about Acoustic Amps and PreAmps

    I use the RedEye, still have my Orchid, but too many places I play either don't have phantom or it is not 48 volts so I don't use it much anymore. Liked it while I used it tho.

    Re: Who doesn't memorize tunes/songs?

    I think the simplest way to memorize a tune, not a song, is in a jam. We used to have weekly jams and at first you don't know the tune, next week you have a few more notes. Next year you know several...

    Re: Who doesn't memorize tunes/songs?

    I am the opposite, I learn by playing with others and all tunes are memorized. Well if the melody is in my head I can play it. A few of us played a two day gig at a school with a caller for kids 1-12...

    Re: eBay sales tax

    For decades if you bought something from another state and didn't pay sales tax you are legally supposed to pay use tax, which is the same thing. It has never been enforced, so this is a way to...

    Re: Question about Acoustic Amps and PreAmps

    A nice feature offered by Grace. It is only the pizeo pickups that have such a high impedance, that I know of. A magnetic pickup would be nowhere near that. 6K-12K would be more like it. Nice that...
