    Default Clamps

    Referring to the clamps that hold the armrest to the mandolin AND the one Myers pickup that uses the same clamp...

    Does anyone know where these metal clamps come from? The hardware specifically.

    I need the middle piece at a size Myers doesn't have. One size is too small and the next size up is too big.

    Billy, I am of no help finding what you are looking for, but if you can't find it take the other two pieces to a machine shop and have them thread a piece of round stainless steel. It will be cheap enough and do what you need.

    I may have solved my problem. Gregg Myers sent me to the folks he buys them from and they say they can fix me up.

    BTW, I really like my Myers clamp 'pickup', they call it a pickup but it's a mic. Easy to deal with and sounds great.

    I'll let you know
