  1. Re: Mandolin > K&K Twin Internal > Grace Bix - Help please

    Yeah, it did that for me without the Yellow, but the Yellow reduces it drastically. Nonetheless, it has a setting to dry out the tone to varying degrees which practically eliminates any threat of it.
  2. Re: Mandolin > K&K Twin Internal > Grace Bix - Help please

    I used to use a Schertler years ago, but it fed back way too easily. A mic would have worked better. My K&K sounds very good, it's not a mic, but still sounds very good.
  3. Re: Mandolin > K&K Twin Internal > Grace Bix - Help please

    Hey there….

    I have a K&K Pure Mini installed in my Martin and run it through the Pure pre-amp. It sounds great. Previously I had a B-Band and it was not for me.

    For my mandolin, however, I...

    Hi Ron, I don't know a lot about the electronics but I have one and the Baggs which is fine for playing in a bar, cafe or other noisy environmont but direct is much cleaner as is of course a good...
  5. Re: Mandolin > K&K Twin Internal > Grace Bix - Help please

    I have a K&K into a RedEye. The sound is really nice, and I don't have any top noise. I have a finger rest/pickguard, and I have one piece we play that requires a percussive tap, the finger rest is...

    I do not have the background on the tech aspects of the pickups and preamps. I do however have some experience with the k and k pickups. Both good and bad. The k and k in my loar 600 is ok. But...

    Looks like ohmic = “of or relating to a circuit element, the electrical resistance of which obeys Ohm's law”
    High impedance is relative to the low impedance of an electric guitar pickup.
    The 10...

    Try running straight into your Helix. Use the Mic Pre, along with an EQ block, and a compressor (LA Comp is my favorite). From there you can add whatever effects you like. I usually use the spring...
  9. Re: Mandolin > K&K Twin Internal > Grace Bix - Help please

    Pedals generally don't work well with passive pickups, UST or soundboard transducer, in my experience (I used to do some live recordings), so use the FX loop for all of that stuff, which should be...
  10. Re: Mandolin > K&K Twin Internal > Grace Bix - Help please

    If I recall correctly you’ll get more noise at the 10mOhm then the one, but both work. I have a Felix and it is switchable and there isn’t much difference between the 2 except body noise and feedback...

    Electronics works with a factor of 10 so 1 meg to 10 meg will work, but the mandolin twin is 1 meg and you will get better sound at 1 meg than if you go into 10 megs.

    Re: Acoustic preamp for mandolin

    How do you like the pickup? It all starts there. If you like the pickup, you just need a nice pre to match impedance and send the uncolored sound on down the line. RedEyes do this very well. I bought...

    Re: Acoustic preamp for mandolin

    The Fire Eye and others are great solutions, each with their own strength. The easy answer to your more involved criteria is the Fishman ToneDEQ. IMO, few do acoustic effects well as Fishman. You can...

    Re: Acoustic preamp for mandolin

    If you are just looking for a simple preamp/DI, I can't hesitate recommending the Fire Eye Red Eye preamp. It is about the size of an MXR Phase 90 and has beautiful sound, and some simple tone and...
