    Re: Schaller tuning machine repair?

    Thanks, Mike. I wasn’t confident in my identification of them, so I’ll take a look at what Grover has.

    Schaller tuning machine repair?

    See attached photos showing deterioration of some parts on my Schaller tuning machines. Those little white washers are all rotting out as time passes, the two circled ones are the worst. I wonder if...

    Re: Any Buckeye mandolin fans out there?

    I'm more than happy with Buckeye #66, though it took me a while to reach that satisfied place. I was playing an oval hole, X-braced Breedlove before this, and bought it sight unseen, my first...
  5. Re: Just picked up a Buckeye, would like to know other Buckeye ow

    I'm the very happy owner of #66, it's been with me just about a year now, and keep getting better all the time. I was very happy with Pete and the process of buying this instrument from across the...
  6. Re: Fathead II ribbon mic for stage use? Your opinions?

    I've gotten really good results with fatheads as drum overheads, and even heard good vocal tracks from them, but those were both studio. I think Pete's right on the money in terms of feedback...

    Customizing a Travelite?

    I have an unusually shaped mandola for which the original case has given up the ghost. I'm expecting a travelite from Elderly shortly, and I'm going I have to cut the interior to fit the instrument's...

    Re: Django in June 2011/2012

    I've always liked the look of this event, were any mandolin cafe members in attendance? I'd be inclined to go if I lived on the other coast.

    At that price, I hope so. It is beautiful in the pictures, at least.

    Re: Yank Rachell Indianapolis 1990s

    You might try reaching out to Rich DelGrosso, he apparently knew Yank quite well, and played with him on a number of occasions. Not sure what kinds of records he may have kept, but there's good...

    Yeah! I thought that was you in some of the pictures from a few years back, neat-o. Bill's still playing, and playing well. There are three cellos counting Stuart and myself, three mandolas and an...

    Oh, that upsetting the festival engineer were a problem I had more often. I'd really like to get to a place someday where I can play direct with a good monitor engineer, and let everyone else worry...

    Re: Three channel instrument preamp for stage?

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. Martin, that Rane unit looks like a great bit of kit, but I'm a ways from justifying rack gear on stage at the moment. I'll look more closely at the TC...

    Hi everyone,

    I'm currently in a band where I play mandolin, mandola and tenor banjo and switch between them quickly. Each have pickups that currently run from a Fishman pre to a Fishman amp. The...

    Re: Amp or PA?

    If you have a trusted person running sound (including monitors) you might get away with running through the PA, but I wouldn't hassle with that unless the room demanded it. Personally, I value the...

    Re: Using a mandola in a group

    In my current band, a solid 90% of the solos are me on the mandolin, as the guitarist prefers not to play too many solos. I reach for the mandola pretty consistently for tunes where he solos, and...

    I'm not sure that what you're asking for really exists, in terms of direct conversion. I've had people using Fender Deluxes blow me off the stage when the dude with a Marshall stack sounds timid by...
  22. Re: Unwanted harmonics on strings not being played

    I know my cello's strings between the tailpiece and bridge are pretty durn lively, I have to actively dampen them to minimize that, and I have ringing in the strings with my mandola. In both cases...
