    Re: Sierra Hull- tone tips video

    She uses a LR Baggs Radius. I have one that I run through a preamp/eq device with my Weber. Works great but is a bit "thumpy".

    Re: Sierra Hull- tone tips video

    She uses a Radius pickup. I started with a BC 60, didn't like it so went to a 50, 40, 35. and now use a Wegen TF100 (that I thinned down). To my ear the BC picks are dead sounding on my G string,...

    Re: more accurate clip on tuner than Snark?

    I suspect that they all use the same chip. It is the display and clamping that varies. BTW, none of the clip on tuners are really strobe tuners. If you want real accuracy a real strobe is the way...

    Or give it a few cigarette burns and pour a frappe over it? Maybe laminate a very thin layer of olive wood over the top?

    Ryder 10-string conversion

    Enjoying 10-string so much I never played my Ryder, so I converted it to 10-string. It has a sweet tone from the combination of mahogany body with maple overlay, and the bolt-on maple neck.

    A good question, as they are not all created equal. Between the Martin, D'Addario and Curt Mangan, I found the Mangan's to be the lowest tension, and with slightly tighter windings, all of which...

    I thought Bobby had a '29 fern back then (eventually sold to Vince Gill). Maybe he had a Loar, too.

    Re: The First Loar F-5 I Ever Played

    Nice story Tim.

    I have heard that over the years Bill was not adverse to swapping mandolins with people and letting them play play his Loar.

    Very cool.
