    Re: 2020 NAMM Show Report

    Steve, looks like a carbon fiber body. Can you share what company?

    Re: Pre NAMM discussion

    <Oh, and of course it wouldn't be a NAMM thread without the fun of tossing out some red meat. There's one announcement we're privy to that will rock the industry that's not on anyone's radar. Nope,...

    Re: Eastman El Rey?

    So today proved that this instrument sounds great even through my modest 1982 Peavey Studio Pro's maligned high gain channel. Once dialed in, it sounded fine just straight in with the onboard reverb...
  4. Re: McClung armrest to match Phoenix pick guard

    Doug custom finished an otp McClung to match my Eastman 515. You can see it sporting a ToneGard and a Bailey Long Hollow Softy. For some reason the upload won't orient properly. I welcome an admin...

    Re: Eastman El Rey?

    I spent about an hour this evening putting it through its paces. I was plugged in to the Rivera. Used the amp's reverb and gain, using the footswitch to mix it up. The R212 is loaded with 25 watt...

    Just wait until the right 515 gets into your hands.

    Re: Eastman El Rey?

    A little more time on the El Rey has been fun. The neck is different from the 515 regarding heel cap design, etc. The width and shape are pretty much the same; the ER-M may be just a bit more...

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    There's at least one at Melodee Music in Sterling, VA. I was picking up the El Ray mandolin, and the sales guys brought it up. Not my thing, and NFI.

    Re: Eastman El Rey?

    E string sounds fine to me, but I haven't really dialed it in yet. It is really still acclimating. Neck feels like my 515, or at least not different enough to notice.

    Re: Eastman El Rey?

    Mine came home today. Acclimating to the house, but the first few minutes thru the Cub 10 and some fx were a lot of fun. Really comfortable, and sounds great no matter the style, all across the frets...

    Re: What's The One That Got Away?

    A plain-vanilla Washburn, likely late 1970's. Fit my hand perfectly, sounded amazing.

    Traded away my MK-O for an octave. The MK was tweaked to perfection, especially the neck and frets. Octave...

    Re: The Kentucky

    I was looking at a K1000 and the K1050 among other options, including some vintage MIJ axes.

    I ended up with the Eastman 515. It was on sale from The Mandolin Store, and came with a case. Not...
  17. Re: Import Flatiron Festival vs Eastman MD515

    I can't speak to the new Flatties. I can tell you my 515 is a little over a year old. I am always taken by the great tone of this instrument. Fit and finish are also impressive. Mine also sports a...
  18. Re: Emando players: What do you want in an amp?

    I would want an amp that captures the various tonalities of the instruments. Stealie should sound different than the 335 style 8 string.

    Also, I want a versatile voiced amp. Blues should be able...

    Re: Eastman ERM El Rey

    I saw one in a local store today; played it thru a Rivera Thirty Twelve. I have to say EL34 is not my choice circuit; I'm much more a 6V6 guy. That said, this little axe played wonderfully, and...
  21. Re: Bose S1 Pro rechargable amp, backpack unit. Love it!

    Reviving this thread. I just got back from the Bose store where I tried one with the Rigel. I was only able to fill the room dimed. Clearly it snd the piezo aren't getting along. I presume it would...

    I still regret trading my MK-O for a custom octave mandolin a decade ago. Yep. The Michael Kelly line, bought used. Once I had the frets and neck adjusted by Steve Sauve in North Adams, MA it was...
  23. Re: what strings do you recommend for a rigel mando ?

    Also pretty much stuck with the J-74 and their follow-on for all my acoustics. The Rigel certainly seems to like them.

    Looking at the Rubner page. The worm-under F style tuners are not yet available, and I see nothing about worm-over tuners. Is this accurate?

    You're killing me with this one. I really like your take on it. What are the dimensions and scale of that instrument?
