  1. Re: Experience in Using Effects on Acoustic Mandolins

    I think if I really love the multi-pedal presets I will eventually progress to the Line 6 HX. I have heard really good reviews from people I know.

    I am really thankful to have gone to the...

    Re: Good idea / Bad idea ?? Suede back

    I find that keeping the back open has a noticeable benefit for tone and volume and own a tonegard in order to to help keep the mandolin away from my body and fully resonant. Many players use a strap...
  3. Re: Experience in Using Effects on Acoustic Mandolins

    I made the mistake of walking through our local music store around my birthday a month ago and decided to buy the new Zoom A1X Four pedal that just came in. Well, it wasn't a mistake as I am enjoying...

    Re: Thick Picks?

    I absolutely love the Wegen M250 which is 3.5 mm with the same slices cut out for grip.

    It seems to have improved my tremolo and fast picking, perhaps because it makes `digging in' impossible and...

    Re: High frets on mandolin.

    Very very short-lived bell like tone.

    I find those high notes on the E are more for emphasis and excitement and less for pure tone. While my Breedlove got the people excited when I ran my solo up...

    Re: Grace Design BiX vs. Red Eye

    I have my pedal tuner on the RedEye effects loop, it serves as a mute [as it mutes while tuning]. I have found that effects loop really useful some gigs.

    Re: $200 to dress mandolin frets? Ouch!

    Were the frets off from the beginning? While this shop might be expensive, so is a new mandolin that needs work straight out of the gate!

    Re: Very high notes on a budget instrument

    I know exactly what you speak of, and IMO I haven't heard many sub $1k mandolins that sound great above the 12th fret [quite a few don't sound great to me above the 7th, but I have a very critical...

    Re: Pick “spinning” while strumming

    I keep the same in my case for those super dry points during winter when I get droppy with my pick.

    Stuff is great. Just sticky enough, washes off easy, only need a little.

    At that price, it is worth flying somewhere for an overnight shopping trip IMO.

    Re: Collings MT2 en Route! ;-)

    Got a used 2017 MT2 this spring and I absolutely adore it. Sweet, resonant, and it goes from whisper to well over 11 and everything in between. Holds its own with customs.

    I hope you enjoy yours...

    Re: Collings MT Prices

    And yet in the classifieds, you can find used MT2s for $3k or less at least once a month.

    I know, I just bought a mint 2017 MT2 for less than that from here this year that I adore (and my...

    He has 3 young kids, which is more heartbreaking than my personal sadness at losing a musician who gave me joy.

    Re: K&K for mandolin

    It is worth checking to see if your mandolin already has a proper sized hole. My US made Breedlove like all of theirs was drilled for one at the factory.

    I believe Collings already have proper...
