    Re: Ukrainian Pub Folk with Mandolin

    No kidding! We were lucky enough to be open for St. Patrick's, but now it's back to lockdown :crying:

    Ukrainian Pub Folk with Mandolin

    Been a while since I posted anything on this forum, but one of my bands just released a new song with me playing the mandolin. I think it turned out pretty well, so I wanted to share :)

    Re: Drunken Sailor

    Here's my band doing it, the mandolin should be loud enough to pick out. It's a slightly modified version, but the main motif is unchanged.

    Ball end strings for an electric mando?

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know of any manufacturer of ball-end strings that would work with an electric mando? It's my understanding that only steel (not phos-bronze) strings work properly with a...

    Re: Is My Mandolin Fretboard Radiused?

    Yeah, works much better in the opposite direction :)
  7. Re: Why did you gravitate toward the electric side?

    Acoustic with pickups wasn't loud enough and produced too much feedback on stage.

    I rarely ever use effects with it, and didn't even think of using guitar techniques, but then again I have an...

    It looks like he's playing in a location with good acoustics, which likely compensates the sound quality more than a little.

    Re: Curt Mangan Medium Strings !

    I have them on my The Loar right now.

    TBH, I hated them compared to SIT STrings when fresh, but they do get a nice tone once the fresh strings "zing" dies down. They still carry the chop quite...

    Re: Beginner Mandolins

    OP, FYI, there's a Kentucky 252 on the Classfields: https://www.mandolincafe.com/ads/117323#117323

    You could do a lot worse for that price.

    Re: Beginner Mandolins

    Some people swear by the Eastmans. A friend of mine has the 505, and it sounds good, though I never liked playing it all that much. I have The Loar 220, and it's a good instrument at the price. It...
  12. Re: Has anyone bought a Kentucky KM-140 recently?

    The Loar instruments are just fine, from what I've seen of them. Don't know about the 110, but my 220 is a good instrument with decent volume and sound that's comfortable to play. It did take a good...

    Re: Electric mandolin.

    Solid body sounds very different from an acoustic mandolin. You can sort of get it to sound close but not quite. Only really needed if you play in a loud rock band where feedback from amplified...

    Re: E. European Mandolin - Trash or Treasure?

    As I thought, this one doesn't ring a bell among the experts here.

    Unfortunately, I don't have the luxury of trying it out in person, as it's in another town. Guessing it's not worth the hassle...

    E. European Mandolin - Trash or Treasure?

    I've always wanted to get a European-style mando for my collection - something with a big body, loud and full sound, and preferrably decent looks.

    I'm looking at yet another posting on local...
  16. Re: Inexpensive mandolin for a piano player who'd like to "dabble

    The Loar LM-220-VS is another good choice under $500 (under $300 if used).

    Mine took some time to open up, but now sounds quite good, especially if recorded and equalized properly.

    Re: Playing Chords on an Oval Hole?

    How about open chords? I mean, you can still play (then silence) them on 2 and 4 for the rhythm to replace the chop. You don't get the "thump", but the idea is similar.

    You also can invent all...

    Re: New Folk Rock Record w/ Mandolin Content

    Haha, yea, we do tend to get a heavier sound than most of the bands of a similar style. Mostly unintentional, though - it's just that at least half of the band members (myself included) are into...

    @JL277z: Yeah, we like to have our way with traditional tunes :D Glad that you like it, to be honest we didn't expect such a positive response for this specific song.

    Re: What my audience prefers to hear (rant)

    I find that audiences generally don't know what they want. If you're any good, you can convince them that what you do is it.

    Bookers, on the other hand (especially in bars) tend to be one big bag...
