    Re: Has anyone tried the KNA UP-2 pickup?

    Red-Eye absolutely has an instrument out. I used to run it between my mando and a Loudbox

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

    Ground well covered but yes.

    If you're already self-conscious about your playing, why would you want to lean into that by bringing a lesser instrument? Bring the lesser instrument where you forsee...
  4. Re: How often should my mandolin need to be tuned?

    So, when I played shows and had the D'Addario I simply clipped it on the headstock but on the underside. I'm able to see it fine from my vantage point and all anyone in front of me sees is the small...

    Re: Mic and Equipment for playing live

    +1 with everyone who's saying solid electric. If you are metaling, you need something cool and cool looking. Buy this, so I don't have to (NFI)...
  6. Re: How often should my mandolin need to be tuned?

    Great catch but there are more reasons why it might need to be tuned. If I tune in the morning and play all day, I stay mostly in tune all day. If I really dig in and whale on it, I might need to...
  7. Re: Changing the strings on my new to me 2nd hand Gilchrist

    I'm seconding the EJ74s. They are fairly accepted here as a baseline. Personally, when trying something new, I will toss a set of EJ74s on first. Play through them and then check the difference with...
  8. Re: How often should my mandolin need to be tuned?

    If you've been using your fingers to type this message, you're way behind. Just start tuning now and keep going until you have to play a song. Repeat after, until the next song.

    Re: Compressor?

    I agree with those that say the purpose of a compressor is counter to the way a mandolin is played. I use one on guitar in one band and it is indispensable in that setting. What I do to get the exact...

    A good clip-on tuner.
    Comfy strap.
    Armrest.
    Case upgrade.
    Strings, strings, strings.

    That CT55 has been sitting in my wishlist for almost three years now...

    Re: Bravo D'Addario XS Strings!

    I tried both and found the XS to be almost as good on my mando as monels. Seems this one just likes monels and heavier strings more than coated. I did not find the XT to be any better or worse than...

    Gotta be that $50,000 Randy Wood two-point

    Looks just like my baby, except with all that inlay work I love. My Kelley is almost identical in the...
  16. Re: Tried this string comparison technique?

    Nope. I give a set of strings the full shot. A full year of experimenting and I am almost narrowed down to one. Goin through one last round of monel experiments.

    Poll: Re: Do you use a Tone Gard?

    The bands I play in are raucous bar band music. At home, I can adjust my position to juice all the tone I need. At the shows I play, nobody would hear the difference. I should protect the beautiful...

    I got a black Wegen 150 for Christmas last year that has been my exclusive pick on my Kelley the whole year. I switch off on other instruments but that Wegen has been enough magic for fifteen shows...
  19. Re: Choice of Strings and picks for New Weber F4 ?

    Is it weak on all strings? All positions?
    Weak means sustain? Tone?

    Wegen
    Primetone
    Pro-Plec
    All rounded, all about 1.3-1.5. I've even started using them on guitar, as well.

    Re: Live Mic for Mandolin Recommendations

    The "Race up Loud Mountain" is a tough nut to crack. It comes with related attitude that also refuses to jibe with a mandolin. As mentioned in many-a-thread, the mandolin is not just a tiny...

    Re: Just changed up my strap

    Shoelace to thread the cord under the strings behind the nut. I am still on the fence about left vs. right shoulder. Right is more common, while playing in bands where I have to switch back and forth...
