  1. Re: Dealing with a floppy G string in GDAE

    i use this set if that helps at all
    Clifford Essex Ultraheavy(or another manufacturer obviously!)
  2. Re: Guitar Body Octave Mandolin for Irish?

    maybe it's because the Pono is short scale as well - this will make it darker sounding than a gzouk.
  3. Re: Guitar Body Octave Mandolin for Irish?

    exactly this - it's one of the holy grails amongst zouk players. He also owns a normal shaped Foley IIRC.
  4. Re: Guitar Body Octave Mandolin for Irish?

    I've owned a Gzouk, It also sounds NOTHING like a guitar and everything like a bouzouki - but yea a different too.
    That was a forster.

    Check out Aus/UK musician James Fagan and his Sobell.......

    He's a nice lad is Tom (his Dad too) & we have a mate in common. Hung out with him & Pons Aelius guys year before last at the most recent Purbeck Valley Folk Fest. It's a Davidson thing :)
  9. Re: And now for something completely different

    Definitely a him - not sure why there was a doubt! As on the other thread - I'd love a bubble when i get back to the stage - but neck or mid pickups are my thing, not bridge
  10. Re: Another unusual one on U.K. eBay

    I know Alan. Interesting character! Lives not so far from me in the Glasto region

    Re: ? about Dunlop Primetone picks...

    No need to change for me.

    I had a BC. I lost it of course being brown (whyyyyy!!!????!!). Was recommended one of the white...
  25. Re: Advantages of Guitar Bodied Bouzoukis?

    one comment you might get is that they 'sound too guitar like' - but as a former (regrettably so!) owner of a forster gzouk, I can tel you that's utter bobbins in my experience.
