    Re: Want to take up the cello

    I played cello as an adult for a few years in a community orchestra. So much fun.

    I gave it up when the Great Recession (remember that?) became a thing.

    Re: nylon stringed mandolin

    I think the instrument was poorly made.
    The volume is at least 1/2 of what you would expect.
    And very little tone. Just "pick on string" type of sound.
    I electrified it with a humbucker and it...

    I had this custom made by Bruce Wei last year. 19" Archtop baritone uke tuned CGDA
    I still play it a lot but it is disappointing in many ways.

    Re: The Blackbird on a Kmise tenor guitar

    D'Addario nylons .035 .029 .0402 .028 (CGDA) work great on 20.25 baritone uke

    I have the Kala tenor 21.5 that I'd like to experiment with. I'll give your idea a try.

    Re: Backwards Guitar Solo?

    I seem to remember a few YouTube videos about George Harrison's backward solos.
    They were pretty detailed.

    Re: A medieval citole

    Thanks.
    I'm absolutely sure your instruments are the major factor in the sound your getting, but I can hear those strings.
    I may try those Oud strings on one of my single course mandolas.

    After listening to this video a few times, and some of your other videos I'd like to ask what kind of strings you are using.

    They have a really interesting sound.

    Re: Gear for Electric Mandolin

    Do you like the Behringer VD400 delay? I'm thinking of getting one.

    I just got my Behringer TM300 today and I'm in awe.
    My edola has a very "Wes Montgomery" sound now.

    Re: Gear for Electric Mandolin

    Right now just a Tube Screamer clone set lightly enough to thicken the tone.

    I've watched a million YouTube videos but every demo is about shredding so it's hard to judge.

    Yes we drifted a bit off topic.

    For me baritone ukes CGDA in nylon or steel works well.

    Any nylon string will do I would think.

    Re: Pros/Cons - 4 vs. 8 strings

    The D'Addario's are their "plain vanilla" nylon strings so they are easy to find.

    They tune up easily with low tension so I think the Martins would be OK.

    My Eastwood Airline mandola lost 4 strings a while back. It didn't need them.

    I also turned two Baritone Ukes into 4 string mandolas. (love the wide necks)
