  3. Re: Straight Up Strings by Siminoff - any thoughts or experiences

    I like them better than anything so far on my Mike Black A2. I play Irish sessions and am going for fatness and volume, otherwise it really hard to hear me. I play hard with a heavy pick. At home...

  6. Re: Volume of oval vs f-hole for Irish session music

    Backing in an Irish session isn’t done on a mandolin. Backing is on bouzouki, guitar or piano. If you want to play in sessions either learn melody on mandolin or get a guitar or bouzouki and learn...

    Re: Straight Up Stings - Review and Question

    I have been using them as my preferred strings for a while. I think they are great. Even balance and good response. I did notice a recent set gave me some minor (but noticeable to me) tuning issues...

    Re: another dpa 4099 question

    How did you feed to a pedal tuner?
  13. Re: Bose S1 Pro rechargable amp, backpack unit. Love it!

    I would disagree about them sounding more natural. The paper cone drivers they use don’t have wide dispersion of natural high frequencies. The overwhelming majority of speaker manufacturers ( pro and...
  14. Re: Bose S1 Pro rechargable amp, backpack unit. Love it!

    Yes. Itís a weird company and unusual stuff. If you ever take their gear apart itís obvious how cheaply itís made yet they charge a premium. It strange to me that they never put tweeters in their...
  15. Re: Bose S1 Pro rechargable amp, backpack unit. Love it!

    Bose has always operated this way. I called them once and they wouldn’t give me an impedance of one of their speakers.

    Re: Suggestions for one hand capo?

    I recently got a Planet Waves NS and it is easy to put on and does not detune my mando. They are cheap so you could try one and see if it works for you.

    Re: Buying instruments in Ireland.

    Check to see if there is a VAT. It’s pretty high for sending instruments to Ireland. I am not sure if there is one for taking them out.
