  1. Re: What Are Some Good Options in the $2-3k range?

    My thought, too. Unless the Bill Monroe look or bling in general matters to you, an A is the way to go.

    The only of your three links that opened for me was the Weber. Were they all f-hole...
  2. Re: New player: a lot of pain in the knuckle of my left hand

    All good advice above.

    Does the same thing happen when you play other mandos? My first two mandos felt fine. When I found that my third mandolin hurt a lot, several folks here (like Keith in post...
  3. Re: My First Mandolin- A Keeper or keep looking

    Welcome, Eda!

    Yes, it's a real mandolin. Is it a Washburn? I'd be surprised if it isn't. People who make fake instruments don't make fake Washburns. There's no money in that.

    But for more info...
  4. Re: My First Mandolin- A Keeper or keep looking?

    Not only that, but your tastes will change and, most importantly, your ear will improve.

    The differences in guitar tones are obvious, even to the untrained ear. Not so mandos. They all sound sort...
  5. Re: Solved! Follow-up to "A pedal tuner question"

    Yes, I've used the quarter-inch send for other things. I know how it works. But since the setup I have works fine, I don't need (or want) to add yet another step to the already elaborate chain.

  6. Re: Solved! Follow-up to "A pedal tuner question"

    Yes, I know. I have some. I just don't have an XLR-to-pedal issue. The pedal board is great as-is. I love it.
  7. Re: Solved! Follow-up to "A pecal tuner question"

    It could be a kindness to the tuner, but the ABCD switch, with its four inputs, would be useless.



    Yes, that would be nice. But the Red-Eye's OUT is XLR, and my pedal INs are quarter-inch. So...
  8. Re: Solved! Follow-up to "A pecal tuner question"

    At the beginning of the signal chain is, of course me. (And talk about mixed signals!)

    Then come four instruments: a Guild D-35 dread, a Gibson snakehead A Junior mando, a Gann and Smally...
  9. Re: Solved! Follow-up to "A pecal tuner question"

    Yep! I do the clicking via a Loop Master ABCD switch box. The instruments (dread, mando, squareneck reso, roundneck reso) go into four dedicated EQ pedals, the pedals go into the ABCD box, the ABCD...
  10. Re: Solved! Follow-up to "A pecal tuner question"

    Four instruments = four inputs = four tuners. In theory it would work, but it would have been expensive and would have made my board too big. (As it is, my acoustic board has more pedals than my...
  11. Solved! Follow-up to "A pedal tuner question"

    A lot of you gave me suggestions on what to do about a pedal tuner that wasn't tuning. I asked the same question at another forum, too.

    Four ideas kept coming up:

    - Get a better power source....
  12. Re: What's are some good guitar soundhole pickups?

    Thanks! I'm not after a Martin sound, either. Very generally, Guilds are my favorites, I like some Gibsons (like the one I'm thinking of getting), and Larrivees make me smile. My two Martins — a D-28...
  13. Re: What's are some good guitar soundhole pickups?

    Thanks! Luckily, I'm not expecting miracles.

    Re: the Harmony Batwing

    I can't justify buying one, but I'd love to have the electric version. If it's good enough for Yank Rachell . . . .

  17. Re: Looking for good acoustic mandolin album

    So sounds like you're okay with vocals and dig bluegrass. My favorite bluegrass outfit is the Seldom Scene. Lots of stellar mandoliniating. The albums with Mike Aldridge on dobro are my favoritres.

    Re: Tunes in "F"

    I play Mark Knofler's "Romeo and Juliet" in F.

    I don't think he does, though.

    Does D-minor count?
  19. Re: Looking for good acoustic mandolin album

    Strictly acoustic? No problem!

    I've always gotten a big kick out of the all-instrumental Stephane Grappelli/David Grisman Live.

    And if you don't mind vocals, one of my favorite CDs is The...

    Re: Temperature and Outdoor Gigs

    I wouldn't play in the rain with either one. I hate wet instruments. When it's sunny I wear a wide-brimmed hat.

    Play the F9. It won't melt. One thing worse than being uncomfortable on stage is...

    Re: What to pay for an old Gibson

    Yup. That crossed my mind, of course. But he knew a few things about its history — comments most thieves wouldn't think of making.

    But who knows? We're rarely sure of the provenence of any used...

    Re: What to pay for an old Gibson

    Hi, Bob!

    Thanks, but I'm not shopping for a mando. I was only interested in this one because it's can't-say-no cheap and it's close to home.

    I do browse the classified here often. In fact,...

    Re: What to pay for an old Gibson

    They're right.

    But I have an alternate theory: The guy, who doesn't overall seem to be real bright, assumed I have a smart phone. At 1:00, our meeting time, he emailed me to say he was running...

    Re: What to pay for an old Gibson

    The guy finally answered my emails. Drove an hour to meet up with him this afternoon. A no-show.

    No wonder he's having trouble selling it!
