    Re: Strumming like guitar?

    "Strumming like guitar" can mean different things. To me, Mike Compton strums the mandolin and I think he's fantastic. Is he "strumming like guitar"? I dunno. There's a pick in his hand and it's...

    Re: octave pedal or multi-effect pedal?

    In one of my bands I play what I'd call rock mandolin. The chain goes like this. A Sarno Black Box sits on top of my Genzler Acoustic Array and is the first stop, as an impedance buffer and for...
  4. Re: "banjo-mandolin" and "nice sounding": an oxymoron?

    I have one - it's from the 'teens or '20s and was probably a decent one in its day. I'm away with family but will post a pic of it on here when I get back - I'd be interested to hear any thoughts...

    Re: What's the big deal about changing strings?

    I don't mind choppin' wood ... and I don't care if the money's no good.

    Seriously - good thread. A few things to think about here.

    Great interview. I've worn out her "Third Journey" album with Mike, and I love her musical philosophy and her insights on the mandolin. Interesting personal history too.

    I grew up playing various instruments (there was an old bowl-back mando in the house) and eventually became best known playing upright and electric bass. I took up mandolin for real in...

    Re: Gibson doubleneck

    wow - I so totally want that '65 EMS 1235. And I've never been a fan of the SG shape (on bass either, which I also play). But that thing is killer, and as the guy says, it's actually a pretty...

    I have one of those octave mandos - bought it from Lyn a few weeks ago. They're cool. I'll see if I can post a pic. If this comes thru that's Lyn's octave on the right, a standard scale...

    Re: What mandolins are made in North America?

    Yup, as are Collings. My two faves, and not because they're made in North America (although they are).

    There definitely are. Upright bass players discuss this all the time. I suggest you go to the website called Talkbass, go to the section for upright bass players (as distinguished from bass...

    Re: K&K pick up and Baggs Venue DI Help

    I'm using a Fishman not the Baggs (although they look very nice), and I join with those who suggest the 1/4 inch output direct into the PA. As noted, the XLR can be very hot and, more important,...

    They must be evil, because their appeal induced me to buy my first one today! A Gibson TG-25 or 25N (it's natural finish), made in 1965-67 (exact year not determinable because of some kind of...
