    Default Alex Heflin on the Eastman ER-M mandolin

    Terrific video by Alex Heflin who should be a familiar name of many, his take on Django Reinhardt's "Douce Ambiance" on the new Eastman ER-M El Rey mandolin.

    Am curious as to what type of amp he is using.

    Alex is a monster talent. I bought his book of transcriptions and am amazed at how much effort and ear was required to produce it.

    That Eastman sounds great, I didn't know they made E-mandolins? I've thought about adding one to the stable? A friend has an E-mando by a maker called Mann-I think anyway, its pretty snazzy!

    I intentionally chose a very simple setup to show off the tone of the instrument. I just ran the mandolin straight into a Fishman Loudbox Artist.

    The eq was pretty flat and I threw on a small amount of reverb, but that's it!
