  1. Re: WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals...

    Since context is everything, imagine the meaning the line, "This product can expose you to chemicals...", would have conjured up in the 60s and 70s music scene?
  2. WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals...

    Okay, now I've seen everything (so far).

    Musician's Friends "Stupid Deal of the Day" is for a cheap Rogue mandolin. That's nothing special, but this is the first time I've seen a warning for a...

    Re: Recording King ROST-7-TS - part 1

    FWIW I've setup tons of guitars and mandolins and it has always been a back and forth. It takes time for everything to settle in so expect to keep adjusting for 6-9 months - longer if you live in a...

    Mini Guitar kits

    Got an email today about StewMac's new Mini LP-style guitar. They also have Mini Strats and Teles.

    Specs say they are 16.3" scale, which puts them in the Mandola range. I am able to tune my Les...

    Re: Recording King ROST-7-TS - part 1

    Sounds great for a cheapo.

    Thanks for your review sounds_good. All the things you mention are to be expected at this price point. These days makers are using PLEK equipment more and more for fret...
  6. Re: What's the difference between Tenor and guitar tuned in fifth

    I picked up 2 PeeWees off CL over the years. Both for super cheap. People bought these for their kids and many were never played so they get offed as toys. They have real necks, frets and all so...
  7. Re: What's the difference between Tenor and guitar tuned in fifth

    I don't think so. I broke a lot of strings getting this tuning to work. I almost got it to E Cb Gb Db Ab Eb but the high string would break just before I got there. That last semi-tone is the killer....
  8. Re: What's the difference between Tenor and guitar tuned in fifth

    That depends on the scale. My 19" Les Paul Pee Wee is tuned in straight 5ths - Eb Bb F C G D - with no re-entrants. The D is and 8 gauge and the Eb is pretty thick, but it works and plays great.

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    It's designed for Chicago tuning, which is E standard minus the lower 2 strings, so it shouldn't be too hard to transition. You can tune it in 5ths but the fret marker is in the wrong place which...

    Re: Eastwood Mando Guitar

    Thanks Huck. I like the idea but some of the design choices are a bit off to my eye. I'd also prefer a short-scale 21", as do a lot of other tenor players. Not sure why nobody is doing that as it's a...

    Re: Peavey Composer Series

    Does the power plate make a difference?

    I like the idea of the longer scale length.

    Re: And just like that...

    Pics? I've always fancied that one.



    Learn tenor banjo or guitar. Until I got comfortable with the fretboard I found it best to think of my 5 as 2 instruments - a tenor and a mandolin. Over...

    Re: Recording Mandolin

    I don't own a smart phone so I'm the last person to ask about apps and things. I'm a video producer (trained in the old-days) so my outlook is more pro-leaning. You can get results with phones and...

    Hi Donna1958 and welcome to the Cafe.

    While your questions appear simple on the surface, the situation is quite a bit more complex. Microphone choices and placement alone is a whole topic of...

    Re: Picking technique on electric mandolin?

    Pick-click is pick-click but it shouldn't come through a magnetic pickup like the ER has.

    I've adapted my picking style to avoid the scooped Florida on my acoustic and that carries over to the...

    Re: Kent wc26 mandolin pickup

    As noted above by nmiller, Japanese gear until the mid to late 70s was called "Jap Crap" because that's what it was. Kent's were on the lower rung.

    The reason they became so "popular" had nothing...

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    So glad it worked out.

    The 2 mods I do on single-coil instruments are the parallel/series and phase-reversal. Both work on push-pulls so they are reversible.

    Phase-reversal gives a nasally tone...

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    Series/parallel switching can be easily done using a push-pull pot. And it's reversible.

    Seonachan - sounds like you're pickups were wired incorrectly. If these are being done by hand, which I...
  21. Re: $59,000 Reward for Missing Gibson Shipping Ledger

    Wasn't 59 a pivotal period for Gibson? IIRC it's the 59 Les Paul that's held up as the holy grail so I can see those records being of value beyond the legal. The company is over 100 years old, so...
  22. Re: $59,000 Reward for Missing Shipping Ledger

    59k for the 59 ledger seems about right to me as well.
  23. Re: $59,000 Reward for Missing Shipping Ledger

    The shipping ledger is probably the most accurate record of what models were shipped and when so it would be a gold mine for the trademark lawyers.
