    Re: Post a picture of what's on your bench?

    This is on my bench right now - the resurrected build of Graham McDonald's Celtic model mandolin and my first build from scratch, which began a few years ago. Neck shaping is in progress.

    Re: Cd containing the standards in ITM?

    It's true that the tunes vary from session to session and it's best to pick them up where you play. Sill, if you really want to listen to some "core" tunes (if there is such a thing) you could do...

    Re: Slow Air

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Here is the story behind this composition as per Matt Cranitch

    Tomás Rua Ó Súilleabháin (1785-1848) was a poet, schoolteacher, fiddler and dancing master. He worked...

    Slow Air

    Here is an Irish Slow Air I've been working on lately. It's been on my mind for some time now, but I couldn't imagine how a slow air would work on this instrument. There is so little to reference....

    Re: Electrifying a Mandolin

    I installed a K&K pickup inside the mandolin body and hear no difference in the acoustic tone.
  12. Re: Recording mandolin - dealing with breath noise

    That belongs in a David Lynch film for sure.
  13. Re: Recording mandolin - dealing with breath noise

    a) I think the problem is solved. I managed to control my breathing a little better and some EQ helped too. Also in real life playback the background noise (in your car or even room) is high enough...
  14. Re: Recording mandolin - dealing with breath noise

    The more closely I listen (especially through revealing near field monitors) the more I'm able to separate that various components of the reverb and then the fun of tweaking gets going. My interest...
  15. Re: Recording mandolin - dealing with breath noise

    This is mostly room but there is a very small amount of Valhalla Room reverb mixed in to add some air and a little more space. I recently realized that just tweaking reverb plugin parameters can...
  16. Re: Recording mandolin - dealing with breath noise

    Thanks for the kind words, folks. I don't mind any comments on this recording. This is still work in progress and I'm experimenting with this sort of arrangement, as well as the recording technique....
  17. Re: Recording mandolin - dealing with breath noise

    I thought I should at least share some sounds after all of this discussion. So here is my interpretation of the Irish slow air Amhran Na Leabhar

    Thanks for all the comments and suggestions so far....
  18. Re: Recording mandolin - dealing with breath noise

    I almost sprayed my screen with coffee, reading this. LOL!
  19. Re: Recording mandolin - dealing with breath noise

    Thanks for the mic suggestion. I've heard about it but never tried it myself. For this particular piece, however, I am trying to use more room sound. To that end, I really like your suggestion to...
  20. Re: Recording mandolin - dealing with breath noise

    Thanks John - all valid points. I do have a couple of string squeaks in there and I don't mind them. I do have some dust masks and will give them a try as well. I also believe that I notice flaws in...
  21. Re: Recording mandolin - dealing with breath noise

    Ok I realize that this statement is made will not sound right to some of you "You would not want to be an audience member with your head 10" away from a mandolin. The impact is impressive. " because...
  22. Re: Recording mandolin - dealing with breath noise

    I have not had good luck with closer micing. I feel the need to capture the sound as it develops in front of the instrument. I like the sound in my room for this application and so I'm ok with being...
  23. Re: Recording mandolin - dealing with breath noise

    Allen - thanks for the brainstorm. I have not tried putting anything in front of my face to help the isolation but I may try it. However, this quoted statement actually is relevent in a way. See, my...
  24. Recording mandolin - dealing with breath noise

    Hi folks,

    I'm doing a home recording of solo mandolin (me playing) and working on a very slow and sparse piece - an Irish air. The setup is an LCD cardioid mic (KSM27) about 18" in front of the...

    Re: How to keep a spruce top clean while sanding

    Maybe a good idea but I have no compressed air in my workshop. I may end up doing it in stages and sealing as suggested above

    Thanks,
