  3. Re: looking to move, but I have no clue where ?.

    Do NOT move to Colorado, it is awful. Weather is terrible, people are miserable, music scene is lousy. The doctors are quacks. I am telling everyone I can to not move here.

    I wish you well.

  5. Re: Grace Design BiX Acoustic Instrument Preamp

    Also a ToneDexter fan, though I have only used it with my fiddle (don’t have a mandolin pu yet). I said elsewhere that if you want your instrument to sound like it’s mic’ed but you can’t or don’t...

    Re: Condenser mic for live and home recording

    Plenty of good suggestions above, I’ll add in the Shure KSM32. As others alluded to, mic choice is situationally dependent. An LDC on a stage with a quiet audience is great. In the corner of a noisy...
  7. Re: Do you bring your expensive mando to the bluegrass festival?

    Good common sense, but for the OP, average high temp in Telluride in June is 68 degrees. Other considerations of course if one wants to bring their nice instrument, but “too hot” isn’t one of them.

    Re: Mandolins are Cool

    This definitely is a contributing coolness factor. Likewise, when...

    Mandolins are Cool

    I've been a fiddle and keyboard player most of my life, and play some guitar (poorly) too. I would pick up a friend's mandolin from time to time but never really thought seriously about getting my...

    If you go to the Denver Folklore Center, might be worth stopping by Victor Guitar which is close by. Primarily guitars (duh), but sometimes has a few mandolins on consignment.

    Ivan, she sounds as good as she looks (especially when played by a better player than me). I recently got to play an Ellis A (2010?), and if my Pava sounds anything near to that when it opens up I...
