    We can only change the opening post title. All that fall after that we'd have to go in and edit each individual which leaves a time stamp with the administrator's user name and makes us look like...

    Re: Stripped screw on case

    I'll note that you could also use a sledge hammer or a reciprocating saw but it might help if you could actually see the screw that the OP is talking about.

    Re: Separation of Singing and Playing

    Like anything else with music you have to train yourself to be ready for the moment when this happens. I sometimes will say the firs couple words of the line to myself ahead of time before I even...

    Re: Straight Up Stings - Review and Question

    JimKo:
    Just so you understand, some of us remain unconvinced by what I consider less than scientific evidence attaching meaningful attributes to 'Straight Up Strings'. That said, I doubt that the...
  8. Re: Straight Up Stings - Review and Question

    I love the tone of Straight Up Strings and have not had any tuning problems after the initial stretching period which was no different to the strings I used to use. I play mainly Irish/Scottish music...
  9. Re: Straight Up Stings - Review and Question

    Hey! I have two cents worth! I've also tried Roger's Straight Up Strings and they were cool. I used them until I chanced upon the Mapes brand. You can buy their pre-made sets or make your own at...

    Re: Straight Up Stings - Review and Question

    I've got them on my '99 Flatiron Festival. They sound much better than the J-75s which were my old favorites. I've been using them for a couple of years now.

    I haven't had the tuning issues, but...

    Re: Straight Up Stings - Review and Question

    I recently converted from 74's to the Straight Up mediums and love the sound and balance. I didn't notice any issues with staying in tune, once they settled in. At least not any more than most any...

    Re: Wireless Pro 35 Mic question

    I've used the AT 'System 10' digital for quite a while - excellent. Very solid connection. Wide dynamic range. Low noise floor. Good indications on receiver and dead easy to synchronize. You can get...

    Re: Fishstick vs Bose L1 Compact : A Quick Review

    I tried the Bose L1 Compact about a year ago. I A/B'd it with my Loudbox Mini, and actually preferred the tone of the Loudbox to the Bose. I just felt the Bose sounded compressed, or 'small'. Hard to...

  18. Re: Anyone using Schertler DYN-M P48 Mandolin Pickup?

    Whilst I stand to be corrected, there is a difference between the original Dyn M (to which some people are referring) and the current Dyn M P48 ( which the o/p is asking about) - for starters, the...
  19. Re: Anyone using Schertler DYN-M P48 Mandolin Pickup?

    I would second Jim's remarks. I like having the Dyn-M, which I've had for nearly five years, but in most of my own gigs I use a Shure SM-137 condenser mike instead. The Dyn-M is the best sounding...
  20. Re: Anyone using Schertler DYN-M P48 Mandolin Pickup?

    I've used a schertler pickup for years on several different mandolins. The only time i don't use it is, just occasionally, when the venue has a good condenser mic. The only real problem I have with...

    I recently restored a mid 30's Regal spider cone resonator. It also has the same intonation issue. Even by pulling the cone as far back as possible, the strings were sharp. After trying to file off...

    The bridge is off center from the center point of the spider, unlike a dobro where it is centered and split with the cone tension screw down the center between the two halves of the bridge.

    Re: Questions on a Dobro Mandolin

    I have one of those that I bought new in 1985. I should have cleaned it better before storing it away for 26 years. Some of the chrome is badly pitted. Hopefully I will have new strings on it soon.
