    Re: Using a DI and Preamp

    The preamp I'm getting has a 1/4" balanced out so my plan is to get a 1/4" to male XLR. Then down the line may get an amp for monitor use. Its nice, the preamp has a reverb setting on it but has an...

    Re: Using a DI and Preamp

    I may get some kind of amp to use as a monitor but its really the mixing board part that I'm curious about.

    Using a DI and Preamp

    I am not sure if it is necessary to have both but I have an active DI and am considering buying a Boss acoustic preamp pedal. The pedal has a notch filter on it which seems like it would be helpful,...

    Re: Chris Thile's Loars

    What do you think Thile means at the end of the video when he says Loar was "going nuts" with his personal mandolin?

    Re: Octave bridge slot repair

    Looks great but is about 4" too long for my hands. Had enough trouble with the A chord fingering on the 20.5" Fender.

    Re: Octave bridge slot repair

    Yeah, Western CT is definitely a dead zone for anything mandolin related. That's why I had to go to the net for an octave. Luckily, I got it from Reverb and despite it being sold as-is,...

    Re: Octave bridge slot repair

    Thanks for the advice. The top on it was sunken in as well. I thought I could just humidify it to bring it back but on closer inspection realized the bracing was cracked. It's going back to whence...

    Octave bridge slot repair

    Why I keep buying instruments online I don't know. In this case I guess the complete lack of octaves anywhere near me is why. I bought a cheapo fender off reverb just to try out the octave. Said it...

    Re: Restored Gibson A jr on FB marketplace

    Thanks. Just curious really, not in market for a new mando but just was wondering what would happen if you tried to remove the spray paint. It's too bad this guy didn't do 15 minutes of research,...

    Re: Restored Gibson A jr on FB marketplace

    could the paint be stripped off without totally ruining the instrument? I'm just asking out of curiosity, no interest in it myself.

    Re: Mandolin Inspired Beer

    Randy, they did that one we went and then another one a couple months later but it was the same weekend as Grey Fox so I don't think they had much of a turn out. I know I was at Grey Fox. Haven't...

    That's my game plan. Honestly, the sound is growing on my as I play it but I think the thing I'm have the most trouble with now is the radiused finger board. Never really played one and I'm having...

    Re: My KM 1050 vs other Mandos

    The MK has phosphor bronze, it's the KM1050 with the nickel. It definitely is a step up but just not the distance I expected, mostly in volume. It is definitely a fuller sound. Just still a little...
