  2. Re: Good mandolin choice for woman with small hands

    Big Muddy makes a 13-inch scale mandolin. No financial interest here. https://www.bigmuddymandolin.com/store
  3. Re: Good mandolin choice for woman with small hands

    You can buy a Big Muddy mandolin with a 13-inch violin scale, which makes the notes closer together for smaller hands.

    Re: Humidifier for Mandolin/Case

    I drilled holes in a soap box and put a small damp sponge in it. You have to change the sponge if it gets moldy and many use distilled water to avoid mold. I only need it in the winter months.
  5. Re: Good mandolin choice for woman with small hands

    I have relatively small hands and play an Eastman mandolin with no issues. If your hands are really tiny, you might consider a violin-scale 13-inch mandolin which will have smaller stretches between...

    Re: Red Bear Lilí Picker

    I have both Red Bear and Blue Chip (CT55) picks. I like both but I prefer the Red Bear picks and their sound even though they break easily.

    Re: Looking for tips!

    I think you're off to a good start here. My advice would be to try to play it perfectly at a really slow speed and only play it as fast as you can do it well. That way, you learn good habits instead...

    Re: floor racks

    You can put each in a case and slide the cases under the sofa if they fit. They will stay protected in the case and that's a good habit for your daughter to begin with.

    Re: New flat top mandolin

    I've got a bunch of Sasafras growing in my backyard. It grows like a weed here!
  10. Re: Opinion: Wegen M150 vs Blue Chip CT55

    Both good picks. Matter of taste. I prefer the CT55. Your sound may vary.

    Re: My band asked me to stop playing guitar

    Funny, my wife asked me to go back to guitar. Mandolin sounds shrill to her. Instead I play when she's out, which has been difficult during quarantine here in New York for the last two months.

    Re: iPhone mic and Audacity

    I use Voice Pro on my Iphone and export to Audacity on my laptop as a wav file. It works well enough, but it's not a bad idea to invest in a better mic.

    Re: Eastman mandolins

    I have an older 605 with no pickup, but it's a great little mandolin. I like the look of the back binding, which I don't think the 505s have.

    Re: Viola to mandolin or mandola

    You'll be able to do a lot with a mandola right out of the box. You can always move to mandolin later -- while many mandolinists these days are disovering Octave Mandolin)

    Re: D'Addario picks?

    I have two Red Bears and a BC CT55. Both are great picks, but I find I get better tone out of the Red Bears, even though they do break if you're not careful with them. Will have to try the D'Addarios...
  18. Just changed my strings. Need to replace leather string damper

    So does the leather strip go over course one and under course two, or over and under each individual string, which seems difficult to do? Thanks. I know there may be no official method, but I was...

    Re: Recommendation for an electric?

    I bought a Kentucky e300 and put a Bill Lawrence pickup into it to replace the old lipstick pickup. It was an simple changeover and sounds great now.
