    Re: GDAE steel string Baritone ukulele

    I just put a set (kr116) onto my €3:50 nylon 23” GDAE. I had a set of daddario folk nylons on it. With the kr116’s the sound is different alright! I used the G .025 for my A but it is too loud for...

    Re: Flourocarbon Stinrgs?

    Re: Tenor banjo help

    A new head is the way to go, to get the best sound out of it it needs to be really really tight. Some people tune the head up to the pitch of A, some say you should have it one quarter of a turn from...

    In Ireland I see lots of players that use that flexible thumb picking style particularly banjo players & nearly all of them are great players! I think it comes from starting off picking tunes rather...

    Re: Timing for Fleadh compition?

    For the Mouthorgan competition they want a "tremolo" Mouthorgan. The brand of choice for all the top players is Tombo. They allow 2 Mouthorgans for the comp, most players use a D & a G Mouthorgan....

    What should I call this?

    This is an idea I put up on a previous post. The idea is to split the neck so the 23" tenor GDAE strings can easily be strummed separately. The 25 1/2" bottom FC bass strings are easily...

    If you're passing through Mullingar you most welcome to use my 16" scale mandolin. I'm through to the Leinster fleadh on Mandolin but I don't think I'll compete in it as I'm through in 10 categories...

    Nice! & I enjoyed hearing it on the banjo. What's the greater challenge knowing the tunes or knowing the names of the tunes?
  18. Re: So what would a 27" scale mandocello sound like?

    For a cellist that explores the instrument like a mandocello it is worth checking out a fella called Rushad Eggleston
  19. Re: So what would a 27" scale mandocello sound like?

    Correct & right about chords on the cello, I play mainly 23" or 24" Tenor guitars & 23" Tenor banjo. For chords I go for the guitar, for Irish trad tunes go for banjo with a flat pick or half size...

    @bruce.b I can manage the 24” scale fine for tunes & chords (although chording some swing songs are tough) of course on a 23” it’s better/easier. The low G string on 24” sounds better to my ears...

    Re: A new tenor guitar?

    @JL227z. If your B string has too much tension 008's, or 0.200mm are available. I kept breaking the E on my 16" GDAE uke so I found the 008's (D Addario) work well. I notice that there are 007's out...
