    Re: New here and new Tenor Guitar

    I swapped my tenor over to GDAE too, and that instrument has a whole new life. I'm really enjoying playing it now, after years of intermittent interest with CGDA tuning. Welcome to the Cafe Tug!

    Re: Makeshift home studio

    If you're building new walls, I suggest using metal studs instead of wood studs. I think they're cheaper than wood now, and easier to work with (plus much less mess). Plus, they won't be ruined if...

    Re: '60s (?) Suzuki 226

    Other than knowing almost nothing about bowlbacks... any mandolin that is structurally sound, plays well, and appeals to you is a steal at $125. Looks like some of those go for double that on the...

    Re: pick-up options for a A style mando

    Sweet A5 you got there!

    I've got a K & K twin, accompanied by the Pure Preamp and think it does just fine through a Fender Acoustisonic 30 amp. (I'm itching to trade the amp for a Fishman Loudbox...

    Re: Help with EQ'ing K&K mandolin pickup

    I've got a K&K twin - and it works great with the K&K pre-amp. I know you'd rather not spend another $100, but adding that will save lots of hassle and be well worth it in the long run.

    Re: What strings are you currently playing?

    I play GHS LSB250 strings on my oval hole. I tried them one time and really liked the way they sound, play and last a long time.

    Re: 10-year mandolin anniversary

    Congrats on a decade of mandolin!

    My suggestion is to take a mandolin themed vacation.

    Re: What if I bought the wrong instrument?

    I was quite relieved to read your anguish was choosing between oval and F holed mandolins, because my first impression of the subject line implied that you bought a banjo.
