    Re: more accurate clip on tuner than Snark?

    Unitune is the next best thing to a Peterson. It can be a regular tuner or a more accurate strobe tuner. They are also not too expensive, $28.99 at Sweetwater. The Polytune is more expensive and not...
  4. Re: Microphone recommends for home studio recording?

    Shure SM81 would be a great choice in your price range as is Shure KSM 137. Personally I would not recommend Rode NT5. It's a great mic for the money but personally I always prefer more flat response...

  6. nice comparison of two NF Big Mons-englemann vs Red spruce tops

    I have watched Derek play before, he has a smooth, clear, precise touch. Nice mandolins both, a person would be quite happy with either I think

  8. Re: How did the "curl" on the mandolin body evolve?

    Quote above continues a misunderstanding of Gibson's model designations, that "A" and "F" were initials for words like "Artist" and "Florentine." Gibson assigned letters to different model series,...

    Re: Should I learn to make bridges while I'm at it?

    I think you should slow down a bit and do some extra work out on your handtool skills. IF you intend to become a good builder you should work patiently and carefully. Each stroke of the tool (or even...

    Re: Mandolin Recording Mic Setup

    Is the room treated?

    That is one of the most under-rated but important factors of all in getting a good result.

    Mic position is next. Try moving the mic(s) around while checking the results. If...

    Re: Best Bluegrass Band Single Microphone?

    I think one reason the KSM's are popular is because they are very tough, well-engineered and stand up well to outdoor/live use. They are also very consistent. All mics have their own 'sonic...

    Re: Does Praying Help Find Your Blue Chip?

    Prayer is more effective when accompanied by a sacrifice or burnt offering. Consider giving up on social media for a week. Alternatively, set fire to a banjo. This will impress the gods of lost picks.

    1) There is no such thing as a 'best' microphone. There are a lot of good ones, some superb ones, and which is 'best' is very much open to personal taste, your technical...

    The 2i2 has different, cheaper preamps than the 18i20 - or so I've read. Never A/B'd the two, but have seen some complaints about the 2i2. I have the 18i20 and have had no problem getting good...
