Thread: Experience in Using Effects on Acoustic Mandolins

    Default Re: Experience in Using Effects on Acoustic Mandolins

    I've used effects on and off with mando, but tend more toward either time delay, or modulation, but not dirt or distortion/overdrive effects. Same with the fiddle. At some point both a mandolin and fiddle start to sound like an electric guitar with enough distortion, and usually in bands I am in there is already a ton of that. I have to stand out from the guitars.

    Good point. I don't have any electric guitarists playing with me at the moment so I don't have this issue. I would be curious to play with one, though, and see how different we can sound.
