    Re: Tuning failure

    Re: If You Are Able…

    Re: Reduce costs pleased

    I recommend a 90% price cut on high-end mandolins. It's the right thing to do
  7. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Wait, are you saying Slash doesn't make every one of those Les Pauls? Next thing you are going to tell us is that he just does it for the money

    Re: Learning songs by ear

    A tool that can slow down the song without changing the pitch can be very useful. Amazing Slow Downer is popular. I use Music Speed Changer (which is free). Both allow you to loop so you can learn...

    I'd be happy so sell you my Ibanez M510BS (first mando) if you want to end that trend.

    Re: electric hum

    In this case I don't think that was my issue. The room where my instruments are only had one 3-prong outlet (my house is from the 1660's). So when I got the amp are changed out one of the 2-prong...

    Re: Mandolin as carry on?

    I took my mando on a business trip to Australia last year, and the final leg was on a Dash-8 prop plane. With these they take your carry-on bag as you board the plane and toss it in cargo because...
