    Re: Gm chord

    thanks Tom, I do use some of those, probably not as much as I should.

    I try to not play the same exact chord shape (where it works) as the other mandolins when in that scenario.

    I tend to use...

    I remember her doing a fiddle tune thing with Billy Strings at Grey Fox a few years back, nothing planned just calling out tunes and audience requests.

    Re: Gm chord

    Thanks I never thought about the D on the 7th,
    I use the 553 on the dola more than the mando, but there are always new worlds to gain.

    Reischmann was doing these very cool minor 7 suspended 2253...

    Re: Gm chord

    All that mandola, octave and cello work has stretched me good, I will admit fatigue is setting in more and more, on those stretches.
    3rd in the bottom is "wierd" sometimes.

    A 5 (D)

    Same here Mandobart, and now at 50% humidity, I do notice an improved difference in tone, so if you have more than a few mandolins and or wooden instruments, its worth it to at least understand your...

    Re: Road Trip III - classic Eastman 815/v

    I agree there is a significant difference to sub 1K and most 2.5K and up instruments.

    Do not- I repeat Do not go to the Music Emporium and start playing Collings and Kimble and Ellis......

    Same issue, same room size, I was talking to a luthier about it and he said if you are below 40% humidity, start to worry.
    So I purchased a hygrometer and found that I was generally in around 37%. ...

    I am gathering from this thread that both Prime Tone and Blue Chip are quite popular, however that seems to be from more experienced players.

    First I will let the "Mean Old Timer" speak and say that picking on a mandolin substitute instrument while watching T.V. is not wood shedding.
    Wood shedding really implies, the performer- the...
  17. Re: Blue Chip CT 55 versus Dunlop Prime Tone 1.4

    At any rate I gave the Blue Chip CT 55 a 5 star review on their website.
    I do especially like it on the dola, octave and cello, but it also sounds great on the mandolin.
    I will still use Prime...

    Re: Mandola string advice sought

    I use the Curt Mangan sets pretty much exclusively, and highly recommend them.
    I have used the John Pearse, they were a little darker.
    I did not like the GHS.

    Best care for your instrument is to play it regularly.

    While Peghead isn't strictly Bluegrass and Old Time, it leans that way, Artist Works works does seem a little more diverse.

    Re: Weber octar

    Very cool. Is it called "Octar" just because of the guitar shape? - I am assuming its coursed GDAE, the 23 1/2 inch scale is the same as my Eastwood octave, a little stretchy for me compared to my...
