    Whatever it is I’m sure someone will be along in a minute to ask what the point of it is! :))
  2. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    There’s probably a pedal of some sort that will do that. They seem to do most things these days.

    And it would complete the circle :grin:
  3. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    Why do I play electric mandolin?

  6. Re: Anyone know what mandolin hes playing?

    Thanks jfiction and apologies to Bob; the first set of Breedloves I found had the name on the headstock but more diligent searching found ones with the logo.
  7. Re: Anyone know what mandolin hes playing?

    Thanks Bob, that’s what I thought but the headstock logo seems wrong. The Breedloves I’ve seen have the word on it, this has what looks like a backwards C

  9. Re: Advice about Bouzoukis' prices and value.

    Have a look at the Ashbury range. I had the Octave Mandolin in the same range as this https://www.scayles.co.uk/ProductDetails?ID=Mjc1Mg== which had a lovely tone. I only sold it because I wasn't...

    Re: Mandolin Stand Recommendations

    It depends on how you want to use it for and how likely pets, children or other family members are likely to knock it over! I’ve got a variety of stands.

    Re: Eurovision song contest worst song?

    Eurovision has long ceased to be about the music (whatever you think of its merits or otherwise) and all about the politics; a sort of UN with glitterballs and dry ice. Everyone votes along political...
  14. Re: Experience in Using Effects on Acoustic Mandolins

    The mandolinist I saw on Saturday night used a few pedals to great effect: EQ, looper, chorus, octave and reverb IIRC.

    Re: Ashbury Resonator

    No experience of that model but I’ve just sold an Ashbury octave mandolin, lovely instrument but it wasn’t getting played enough, and I needed to fund a guitar. I’ve also got an Ashbury electric...

    Re: Do people ever change their strings?

    I think that the definitive answe will be “it depends” :) How often do you play, how long for and how sweaty are your fingers. I play for about 20 minutes a day on average and change every 2 - 3...

    Re: 19" octave mandolin - tune as CGDA

    Using a set of EJ76 as a starting point and putting in your scale length suggests that a. 012, 022w, 030w, 044w will have a similar tension to EJ76 on a 1 3/4” scale
