    Re: David Surette has passed.

    Rest in peace. This is very sad news. He was one of my favourite players, and one that I've always wanted to sound like.

    My thoughts are with David's family and friends.

    Re: David Surette has passed.

    So sorry to hear of David's passing. Condolences.

    Have you had a look under the pickup? ...... If those poles are rod magnets, then you may be able to tweak the balance by adding small Neodymium discs.

    I love the bass and overall tone of the pro-plec but I always lost treble cut which led to me overplaying to get more volume in group situations.

    That's a nice use of sustain and partial chords on that OM. That's what they're made for when playing melody, in my opinion. The slower tunes where you can really work the sustain of the longer scale...

    Re: Bouzouki, OM, or Mandola?

    My Weber Bitterroot OM has a shorter (20 inch) scale, which makes melody playing accessible, but it’s also a rhythm machine when strung with EJ 72 mandola strings. And, capo at the 5th fret and you...
