    Re: .012 - .042 strings for a MANDOCELLO??

    I am using the Curt Mangan mandocello light, so far so good.
  2. Re: Humidity different in same 10x10 room with humidifier in plac

    Same issue, same room size, I was talking to a luthier about it and he said if you are below 40% humidity, start to worry.
    So I purchased a hygrometer and found that I was generally in around 37%. ...

  5. Re: Blue Chip CT 55 versus Dunlop Prime Tone 1.4

    I am gathering from this thread that both Prime Tone and Blue Chip are quite popular, however that seems to be from more experienced players.

    Does it make sense for a beginner to start with...

    Re: Fiddle Tunes with History?

    Most pickers are acquainted with "President Garfield's Hornpipe", I have seen the "Lincoln Hornpipe" in Coles 1001 Fiddle tunes.

    "Lincoln's Farewell train" is another that comes to mind.

    Re: electric mando / amp pairing

    I used the fishman loudbox ( 50watt) for a long time and it was @ $300 but plenty of amp for electric mando, but they are really for "a clean acoustic sound" and don't do much for distortion or...

    Re: I知 afraid woodshedding has made me worse

    First I will let the "Mean Old Timer" speak and say that picking on a mandolin substitute instrument while watching T.V. is not wood shedding.
    Wood shedding really implies, the performer- the...
  9. Re: Blue Chip CT 55 versus Dunlop Prime Tone 1.4

    At any rate I gave the Blue Chip CT 55 a 5 star review on their website.
    I do especially like it on the dola, octave and cello, but it also sounds great on the mandolin.
    I will still use Prime...

    Re: Mandola string advice sought

    I use the Curt Mangan sets pretty much exclusively, and highly recommend them.
    I have used the John Pearse, they were a little darker.
    I did not like the GHS.

    Re: Mandolin Care?

    Best care for your instrument is to play it regularly.
  14. Re: Best mandolin video courses - Homespun or Peghead?

    While Peghead isn't strictly Bluegrass and Old Time, it leans that way, Artist Works works does seem a little more diverse.
    I like the Peghead approach, its more laid back, however it tends to be...

  16. Re: Embarassing Question - Which Mandolin to Bring to Jam?

    if you have a nice mando, bring it out, show it off, let others check it out while you play theirs, you tend to start figuring out what you really like about different mandolins, and after that I can...

    Re: Weber octar

    Very cool. Is it called "Octar" just because of the guitar shape? - I am assuming its coursed GDAE, the 23 1/2 inch scale is the same as my Eastwood octave, a little stretchy for me compared to my...

    Re: Nick's Front Porch Mandolin

  23. Re: Blue Chip CT 55 versus Dunlop Prime Tone 1.4

    Well I don't disagree we can have a variety of various picks in the arsenal, I do believe the pick itself contributes to right hand execution and tone production.

  24. Re: Blue Chip CT 55 versus Dunlop Prime Tone 1.4

    I also received a tone slab with a purchase, but I think it must be lighter than a 1.4 so it seems very bright, I will say I like the CT-55 on my mandocello, but for mandolins, I can't really tell...
