    Re: Eastman 515 neck too heavy

    Try their Del Ray guitar for the worst neck dive of all time.
  2. Re: Wrapping strings around tuners too many times restringing?

    It might be a scientific study by the marketing department, but a selling point for the new style of guitar tuners that grip the string is that wraps are bad for staying in tune and provide some...

    Re: 4 string El Rey Mandolin

    I've got the jazz guitar version and the pickup, a Kent Armstrong, is terrible. Great neck for jazz but no pop.

    Re: Fan to cool the band

    Listen to a fan long enough and I start hearing tunes in it.
  5. Re: HELP! I'm Running Sound For the (sort've) First Time

    I hope you have a helper on stage that will control things there when you change bands. The helper needs to be firm with the performers. Have all the mics labeled. Different colored windscreens or...
  6. Re: Tested: Where Does The Tone Come From In An Electric Guitar?

    Can't say I learned anything from the video.
    I have played electric guitars without the amp allot...good for technique, really have to listen. A semi hollow telecaster sounds much different from a...

    Re: B.B King box on mandolin?

    G minor is a pretty good box for minor blues on mandolin. The instrument is well suited to it. Try "As the years go passing by" as done by several Kings, or "Thrill is gone"..Try em in Gm.

    Re: B.B King box on mandolin?

    It appears to me that this BB Box business is talking about using a particular range on the guitar as a sweet spot for sound. This depends on the guitar, the strings, the tuning, the amp and how...

    Re: Let's talk small, high-end, acoustic amps

    I googled the Boogies and the manufacturer site didn't list the weight. The other Boogies I've known have been about as heavy for their size as anything out there. Always a surprise for someone being...

    Re: Let's talk small, high-end, acoustic amps

    Speakers need to be driven to a certain volume to sound good. A system that will fill a club will sound bad as a desktop. If you want a holy sounding monitor make sure it sounds good with the volume...

    Re: Building a solid body mandolin

    I bet if someone were to come up with a Warmoth style neck and body business for mandolin they'd sell a few.
  13. Re: Tennis elbow in the picking arm - how to avoid it?

    The business about wrist curls (a flat out cure for me) is from the book "Sports Health" by Southmayd and Hoffman. There's more info there.

    Re: microphone feedback cures

    The Sennheiser has a pop filter for vocals, though it's fine for instruments. A 58 is more comparable. 58s and 57s are about the same but the 58 has a pop filter for vocals and it's superior to the...

    Re: microphone feedback cures

    Put a third octave EQ in line, turn up till it feeds back, notch that frequency down...repeat.

    I struggled with this years ago. I read about doing wrist curls to strengthen the forearm muscles which helps to hold the tendons in their proper positions which is where the pain comes from. I sit...

    Re: Microphone recommendations

    If you've never played with a mic before I'd recomend practicing with the mic while wearing headphones, preferably the closed type so that what you hear is coming thru the mic. Small movements make a...

    Re: Microphone recommendations

    There are some very high end mics on that list. If you are using them in a recording studio and have plenty of cash, fine. When those mics appear with a show for live sound, it's probably an ego that...

    Re: Your favorite mandolin tuning tips?

    As a recent guitar player convert I'll say tuning this mandolin is a pain. Kind of have to play it into tune. I don't get satisfactory results just with a tuner and I've tried a few as well as PC...

    Re: Microphones for home recording

    If you are recording in a quiet place where the mic can be placed away from the instrument/singer then there are countless cheap options that will perform better than a 57. If you want a more up...
  21. Re: Now that I have actually tried playing one.. a few questions

    I've had mine almost a year now and awhile back I noticed I was more able to fret higher on the neck a few months into it. I've decided that's because my calluses are a little different now so that...
  22. Re: Expanding my searches. Thoughts on USA Ovation mandolins?

    Are the necks a standard shape? I have one of their classical guitars I bought in the seventies and it's neck shape was a revelation for playing jazz on a classic for someone used to a stratocaster.

    As the 81s have been around so long you might find a used one at a good price. There are plenty of mics out there that have been sitting in a drawer for a couple of decades. When you buy a used mic,...
