    Re: Recording King RA-998

    I am skeptical about people wanting to play slide mandolin.
    I searched youtube and found 7 videos. So, there are some.

    like to try that...

    Re: Recording King RA-998

    I have not seen a Recording King RA-998 resonator mandolin.

    The Recording King uses a 10" hand-spun European Recording King cone.
    National cones are 9.5" as are most other options I have read...

    There are a lot of dogs out there just doing their jobs making sure bones are clean.
    Why would we put them out of work?

    Re: Dealing with pokey string ends?

    I pull the free end of the string around the string in tension
    until it bends. I cut off the extra length. The end springs
    down to the tuning peg.

  9. Re: Fuzz / Distortion pedal recommendations?

    I suppose we will hear recommendations, but maybe you don't
    need a separate box to do this. Turn up the gain in the front end
    or at the input pre-amp in the mixer until you get non-linearity
    and...

    Re: Amplifying a violin in an electric combo

    I hope you are not trying to have us confuse a carbon fiber violin with an electric violin
    or suggesting that a carbon fiber violin needs a pickup.

    If you are be prepared for some protest.

    My guess is you would pay a premium for "water resistance".

    In the US I do not see used Blueridge guitars with cheap asking

    Re: Amplifying a violin in an electric combo

    Though I do not play violin, I have been happy with the sound
    of violins using the LR Baggs bridge pickup. That pickup is best
    used with a high impedance active DI or preamp. I use the

  20. Re: HELP! I'm Running Sound For the (sort've) First Time

    You don't need to optimize signal to noise ratio and distortion is audible.
    So, my advice is keep it in the green. Occasional loud peaks in the yellow
    are all right, but there is no need to push...
