    Re: Picking faster?

    Try to go from 120 to 121 rather than to 140. Getting faster is s slow process ;-)

    By the way as for others, 120 is damn (too) fast for me. There is only one tune that I can play at 120 and this...

    Impendance matching:
    Means that the sink of a signal (e.g. preamp input) has the same impedance as the source (e.g. the PU).
    With matched impedance...

    Re: Do people ever change their strings?

    I belong to the category 'lazy frequent string changer'. That is, I very much like the sound of fresh strings but do not always change them as often as I should.

    On the other side sometimes after...

    Re: My new Airline Electric Mandola

    If the issue persists with new strings, you could check whether the strings in each pair is exactly at the same height at the bridge and nut. I have a slight issue at the lowest course with my...

    Re: radius fretboard why?

    This is for sure true. And whatever I got used to is what I like the best.

    That said, I have to add that I have several instruments with a radius (mandolin, electric bass) and several with a flat...

    Re: radius fretboard why?

    Maybe the difference is more in the picking: the radius helps to avoid those strings you don't like to pick.
    Just think of a fiddler who can't live without the radius.
  13. Re: how many of you venture up to-or beyond the 18th fret ?

    I only have 17 frets on my mandolin.
    On electric mandola this area confuses me ;-)

    Re: How do you pronounce "Wegen"?

    Frau Weh (= Mrs. Vay)
    That's what I understood when I was three years old and my father had that nice light blue Beatle. (I had no problem to understand "Kaefer" ;) )

    Re: How do you pronounce "Wegen"?

    Shame on me, I always pronounced it like the German "because of" ;-) because it shares the exactly same spelling.

    Re: What's gong on with my mandolin?

    I once had a loose truss rod in my mandolin. The setup did not require the truss rod to pull back, but it was way to loose and the nut or washer vibrated when I played. Gently tightening the truss...

    I use Dropbox, mainly to share rehearsal recordings with my band mates. But unfortunately browsing and playing the files is not really in an intelligent way or in any way compareable to the usual mp3...

    Re: unlearning a bad habit

    Lucky one!
    You have identified a bad habbit within 10 weeks, so you should be able to unlearn it within the next 10 weeks.
    For me this is sort of no time at all. Give it a try - good luck!

    Re: choosing a mandolin for playability

    Here are my 2 cents.

    Maybe you suffer from the same problem as I did after starting playing: my mandolin had a very high action, actually it never had a setup done. So I had to push down very hard...
  22. Re: Using the Tile or other GPS tracker in case

    As the Tile tracker does not have its own GPS and cellular radio, it relies on the smartphones of the Tile community. If your Mandolin is lost and you are out of reach of the Tile's bluetooth, you...
