    This thread, the piezo and preamp threads as well, will probably all be impacted if Zeta gets traction with its new mandolins.
    Play it like you mean it.

    Are you implying that everybody is going to get rid of their pre-amps and pickup'ed mandolins in favor of a Zeta mandolin? It will be nice to have that option, but I don't think it will have such an impact that people will stop trying to find ways to optimize sound reinforcement on their mandolin of choice.

    I'm not looking for a "silent" electric option. I simply want my instrument to sound as close to "itself" as possible when playing live. Tone Dexter and my geek option don't slap a sound onto your mandolin. They both just make the preamp sound close to the mic'd up sound. So, it sounds and feels completely natural. The sound of the real instrument is what inspires me to play.

    Of course not. It’ll be another option for players who need a solution to the volume problem, either to play natural or with any variety of synth sounds. I think the jam band group will like this as well as other players who play a variety of genres and will now have the ability to change sounds easily.

    I was surprised to be impressed with the sound of a flat top, f hole mandolin. You can listen to it on their website.

    And electric instruments are pretty real too.

    Well, to carry on with this completely geeky thread...
    I bought a Joyo Cab Box to handle IR loading. The Mooer Radar works fine but the lack of an easy interface made me look at other options. The Cab Box also has midi in so I can use it with a midi foot controller to change patches. Pretty cool.

    I spent last weekend and created the IRs of all my instruments (using my instructions above with a few edits). I loaded them into the Cab Box and tweaked the internal EQ a bit. All instruments sound great. I head out on tour (North Carolina and West Virginia) tomorrow and I will be using this pedal setup for the first time. Wish me luck! I will post back on how it goes. Who knows, maybe I will make some generic IRs and make them available to anyone who wants to try them out.
