    Re: Really Basic String Question

    I am pretty sure they are the same, or as Ray(T) says very nearly. I have taken plain strings from guitar, banjo or mandolin and noticed no difference. Wound strings from the same manufacturer are...

    Re: Which bridge?

    I adjust all of my bridges while strung up, I don't have a Brekke. They are good bridges all, the most important is the fit pf the bridge.

    Re: 7th fret problem

    I have also cured problems with a string change. I would at least change the offending string first before doing anything else.

    Re: 7th fret problem

    You could simply angle the foot to help. If that is not enough I would not soak the saddle, but instead cut some wood away to take the string back to where it needs to be.

    Re: Gifted mandolin

    If you string it up to play, use really light strings.

    Re: Pre NAMM discussion

    My old Calton has a nice storage space under the neck support. I would opt for a smaller case and forgo the storage at the bout end.

    Re: Tone Dexter users?

    The RedEye is far superior to the K&K preamp IMHO. While I have tried the Baggs, K&K, Orchid, and RedEye, I have not tried a Zoom. The RedEye is the latest and have been using it for a couple of...

    Re: Tone Dexter users?

    McIrish, what preamp are you using? I have a K&K and get a great sound, very similar to my mandolin. I am using a RedEye pre. I also mounted the K&K different and maybe that helps.

    My action is less than that, but if you like the sound have the bridge lowered. It is not adjustable via a screw, but it is adjustable. Is the neck flat or does it have too much relief? I like less...

    Re: Wide neck Mandolins ?

    There are mandolins with a 1/4" neck. My '22 A2 is one of those. A wonderful sounding mandolin, tho like Markus I am preferring a narrower neck these days.

    Re: Need advice on selling Flatiron mandolin

    I couldn't find anything on a 1DC Flatiron either. They did have some other models like 2M and such. Maybe it was a custom instrument.

    Re: Accompanying a guitarists who tunes down

    If you have another mandolin you can always string it up with the next heavier strings so tuning down a half step will still have a fair amount of tension. Keep that mandolin for this particular gig.

    Re: Pearl Nut - Low slots for G strings

    If the other strings are higher and the G does not buzz the mandolin will play much nicer with the other strings lowered to where they should/could be.

    Re: Pearl Nut - Low slots for G strings

    Are the G strings above the first fret enough to not buzz? If so you can lower the rest , maybe they are too high and the G is where it should be.

    It may be that the G side of your bridge is taller than the E side, making the tailpiece higher on that side. It can easily be bent, but if this is what is occurring it will go back to where it is....

    The older Gibson's won't have the access up the fingerboard like the Eastman. If you start playing leads you will want the extra length.
