    Re: Dots or no dots

    I just use the side dots; fretboard dots are useful to help work out what some else is playing :)

    Re: Help with budget mandolin.

    As you’ve probably discovered mandolins are few and far between over here. Don’t know where you’re located but Hobgoblin stock the Ashbury range....

    I’m very happy with my Ashbury https://hobgoblin.com/ashbury-am-240-solid-body-electric-mandolin

    Re: Notation to Tablature

    I'd do as Michael suggests and get Tabledit. I've tried and failed to learn notation and now use Tabledit to convert notation to a legible :) format.

    Easy to learn and well worth the money. I also...

    Re: Musician Jokes

    Totally agree, I’ve even gone to the extent of editing out the spoken parts when they get too annoying on some tracks in my collection.

    If you put your current strings, scale length and tuning into http://stringtensionpro.com/ it will suggest a string set that will give the same feel as the current set and tuning. If you’re lucky...

    Whatever it is I’m sure someone will be along in a minute to ask what the point of it is! :))
  11. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    There’s probably a pedal of some sort that will do that. They seem to do most things these days.

    And it would complete the circle :grin:
  12. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    Why do I play electric mandolin?

    Like any other instrument. Because I can*.

    I originally got mine for quiet practice but it gives me a palette of sounds that I can’t get from a guitar or...

  15. Re: Anyone know what mandolin hes playing?

    Thanks jfiction and apologies to Bob; the first set of Breedloves I found had the name on the headstock but more diligent searching found ones with the logo.
  16. Re: Anyone know what mandolin hes playing?

    Thanks Bob, that’s what I thought but the headstock logo seems wrong. The Breedloves I’ve seen have the word on it, this has what looks like a backwards C

  18. Re: Advice about Bouzoukis' prices and value.

    Have a look at the Ashbury range. I had the Octave Mandolin in the same range as this https://www.scayles.co.uk/ProductDetails?ID=Mjc1Mg== which had a lovely tone. I only sold it because I wasn't...

    Re: Mandolin Stand Recommendations

    It depends on how you want to use it for and how likely pets, children or other family members are likely to knock it over! I’ve got a variety of stands.

    Eurovision has long ceased to be about the music (whatever you think of its merits or otherwise) and all about the politics; a sort of UN with glitterballs and dry ice. Everyone votes along political...
  23. Re: Experience in Using Effects on Acoustic Mandolins

    The mandolinist I saw on Saturday night used a few pedals to great effect: EQ, looper, chorus, octave and reverb IIRC.

    Re: Do people ever change their strings?

    I think that the definitive answe will be “it depends” :) How often do you play, how long for and how sweaty are your fingers. I play for about 20 minutes a day on average and change every 2 - 3...
