  1. Re: Emando settings for ancient Digitech RP 200

    I have a Digitech RP250 which I assume is fairly similar to your RP200. I like it even though I’m sure the newer ones are better. I play an EM200 through the 250 into a Peavy Classic 20 and I’m not...

    Re: Stiver F vs Gibson F2?

    I understand your dilemma. My main player is a Nugget A, but I also gotta have an oval, so I have a pretty beat up F2 for that. Im a big fan of Stiver mandolins, even though I've only played few. I...

    I got a compensated aluminum saddle for my EM from Rigel many years ago. It fit right where the posts are so there was no modification necessary. The intonation is perfect with sustain to spare, if...

    Re: Gibson EM 200

    Chief, glad to see you found what you were looking for, the EM200s are hard to find. I don't think I've seen one under 2K; I have an early 60s EM200 with a compensated aluminum bridge, Price...

    Re: clamp on condenser mic for collings A

    There's rarely any mention of a Microvox setup, I'm not sure why. A lot of violinists use them and I have never had an issue with them. They are a lot less bulky than some of the set ups discussed...

    Re: Reignwolf on the eMando

    Huh? Blues is about tone and groove, of which neither one of those guys captured in that clip. Id call it speed metal grunge, devoid of soul. Not that there's anything wrong with that. They...

    Re: Gibson A50"s

    Short neck yes, but with proper set up an A50 can be a very reasonably priced mandolin for all types of music. The one I have now is a beater, that I put a fossilized ivory bridge on and I would put...

    Re: 1949 gibson a-50

    tpeter,
    The first decent mando I bought was an A50, back in the late 70's. She was blonde, the only one I've seen, and somehow I let her slip away. I've been wanting another ever since for a travel...
