    Re: Godin A 8 Mandolin booming.

    Had a similar thing happen when practicing w/my NS DESIGN electric bass (piezo PU). My "A" string would start to vibrate for no apparent reason. It was doing it when we were playing and when there...

    Re: Who'da thunk, muting my mando?

    Hey Tim,

    Yeah, I think folks are viewing out of curiosity since we all seem to strive to make our mandos louder.

    My solution worked out just fine. Thank you. If I were just going instrumental I...

    Down Simba.

    While you may look at a capo as serving a different purpose than your finger, understand that your index finger does indeed do the same thing. Both the capo and the index finger, in...

    Re: Rattling Tuner

    The rattling is somewhat "normal" for this product.
    Slide open your battery door and slip in a little piece of business card between the battery and the battery door. Problem solved and nothing...

    Re: Huck Finn Jubilee

    You betcha. Wouldn't miss it!

    Headline act is Larry Gatlin this year but none of the daily schedules show when he's playing. Guess he'll perform on Sunday some time.

    Re: Who'da thunk, muting my mando?

    Hey CaskAle,

    The mute is offered by Janet Davis Music, a Cafe sponsor, for $11.95 (SKU # JDM-BM).

    It is a banjo mute that slips over the bridge that will bring down your volume, but not knock...

    Who'da thunk, muting my mando?

    For the past few months I've been leading worship at a Bible study in the chapel at a retirement residence.

    The chapel is small, but the acoustics (or lack thereof) produce echos and amplify all ...

    Re: Small acoustic amp for mandolin AND guitar

    Although I don't have any advice on a specific brand or price range for your amplifier dilema, I am of the opinion to get what you need now AND a bit more for what you MIGHT (within reason) need in...

    Hey Jon,

    My limited book-learnin' and personal experience says all items should work OK.

    Re: mandolin to ubass?

    Nothin' like the real thing.

    Now, at least for me, if I want a banjer, I get a banjer, if I want a bass I get a double bass. There is nothing that compares to the actual sound of the "original"...

    Re: Disappointed newbie

    Welcome to "the other side" Eric,

    I too play the uke (and the upright bass) and enjoy both (all three) instruments.

    Don't let it get you down. Once you get things straightened out with your...

    Easy to tell by watching the guitar player's hand, but if you don't play guitar you're outta luck!

    It may not be "rude" to not announce the key before launching into a song, but it certainly is...

    Re: Tweaks for better Mid-Range performance?

    Hey Greg,

    You won't find a gigantic difference, but try changing your strings to the Gibson Sam Bush Monels. I have an OO and I find the mids are much nicer [I]on my instrument.[I] Worth a try...

    Don't fret (pun intended), it's normal.

    As a side effect, due to less finger tip sensitivity, I find I have to pay more attention to my touch typing.

    Find a good ukelele therapist and, over time, your uke MAY become a mandolin, but the uke has to WANT to become a mando!
