    Re: 2020 Duff A5

    Thanks Daniel. I'd be curious to know any major changes he made along the way to achieving his current tone/style.
  3. Re: Suggestions for Good Microphone for Acoustic Group

    Really going to depend on the application. Live gig? Home recording? Trying to record for a stream? So many variables itís really a rabbit holeÖ the deeper you go you start to understand the nuances...
  4. Re: Duff A style mandolins, like to hear owner thoughts, some ?

    As evidenced in this thread from the beginning, the current Duff builds are amazingly strong and amazingly consistent. If you don't want to bother with or risk hot rodding a new instrument just shoot...

    Re: Punch Brothers "Hell on Church Street"

    There are a few cuts I enjoy, but overall its a miss for me. I don't feel like I should need a Berkeley education to understand how a song on a tribute album relates to the actual song. Obviously the...
  6. Re: Duff A style mandolins, like to hear owner thoughts, some ?

    That video is great. Great playing and tone there. Here is a much lower quality production video comparing my 2017 Duff A5 with a 2006 Gil F5 from another thread:

  7. Re: Duff A style mandolins, like to hear owner thoughts, some ?

    At the time I got mine I was playing an Ellis with a radius board, and I considered getting a new radius fretboard because I was concerned about it and it turned out to make no difference at all and...
  8. Re: Duff A style mandolins, like to hear owner thoughts, some ?

    Go for it. His current As are outstanding and pretty consistent. They can go head to head with anything out there. Iíve tried and itís as good or better than just about anything. Fat fundamental...

    Re: Tips for better rhythm playing

    Sometimes you just gotta practice and experiment with it to see what sounds good. Playing along with Tyler Grant is good for woodshedding and trying stuff out: ...
  10. Re: Do you take your best or most valuable mandolin to gigs?

    I bring the tool for the job. Currently my most expensive mandolin does not have a pickup in it, so if I am playing a gig where I need a pickup (most of them) I need to bring my mandolin with a...

    Re: The shipping problem

    I finally got a Heritage policy for my instruments which covers shipping. All in all the policy ended up being less than 1% of the instrument prices. I think with the amount I have paid for shipping...

    Re: David Surette has passed.

    This one is hitting hard. I only got to be around him a little bit at Swananoa Gathering a few years ago where he was teaching, but seemed like a great, kind soul and a wonderful musician. Sending my...

    Re: Bill Halsey's last F-5

    Those seem quite special indeed. I've been meaning to try Old Growth's. One of these days. Seem to have all the ingredients of a killer Loar clone.

    Re: help with leading notes

    I frequently (probably too frequently) walk down from from the root to the flat 7 when going to the IV chord. And also from the V back to the I. I think it is lots of fun and sounds good, but...

    Re: Pickup options?

    Dude, we get it, you like the Schertler, that is great. No one is "dissing it". For some people the adhesive and pressing it on every time causes damage to the finish, which is exactly what the OP...

    Re: Pickup options?

    I would advise against the Shertler. It has good tone, but has the same issue of sticking to the instrument with an adhesive and scratching and messing up the finish. That and the chord is weird and...

    Re: Here's my sad mandolin story...

    Thanks. Not really a fair comparison, since I've only had the Gil a few days. It is a remarkable instrument, but I think it has been pretty quiet the last several years. Meanwhile I've played that...

    Well, here's a rough video. Not the best comparison since they have different age/type strings and the Gil is still setting in, but ask and you shall receive.

    Well it safely arrived today. It is definitely a beauty and has nice dry crispy tone. Plays really easily up the neck. Gonna let it season and get through the rest of the week. I hope to find some...

    This is our struggle here. I can't provide any recent pics or sound clips since I don't have it... if all goes well tomorrow this may change. For now you will have to settle for some pics Mr. Gil...
