the handle is enjoyable trs, it is easy to play. trs ergonomics is good, it would like in place and does not take too much.
I do not play too much treble, I rarely Exceeds the 12th box, but if we want to do is very easy.
For a sound, just play the chords, there's no easier by the fact that it takes a little more force than an electric guitar. If I do not play and I rgulirement APRS gives me a long PERIOD abstinence, to play for over an hour, I pint of big bulbs at the end of fingers ... well it does not matter, must leave for 2-3 days, and getting better ... Must say that it is taut, and we play the chords 2 by 2.
But good info for my pulling rope is brand GHS Bright Bronze 11-16-26-40, adfaut to find GHS Silk and Steel strings trs be difficult, but the Bright Bronze trs sound good. I tried other brand, with a light pull over, I do not AIM at all, I found a incontrlable.
To replace the strings, just simply pull the collection's outdoor instrument the small plate that protects the tailpiece base mandolin. Should not panic, it's just a cache s'enlve and returns.
on the other hand, you have to think about changing the strings one by one, least of all to remove all at the same time as the bridge is normally floating ... I have done and resumed his place in case it moves, as has happened with an old Neapolitan mandolin that was almost out of rope, to have the bridge of dplac and it is the cata ... In the era I thought it s'tait dcoll because of the time, I have not glued trs law, once the mandolin is unplayable ... but it is so old that his only place is to be hung on the wall as dcoration ...
I agree for years with a tuning fork 440. I granted the LA and the other strings from it l. I realized in granting rcemment empty electronic tuner that c'tait compltement shit if I granted the strings empty, I end up with a quarter-tone or a 10 me of your DCAL, like I would have added a hoop in the middle of the box I play by my rcuprer note! So if I grant it with a tuner, not the ear, I give in my eye A string is to say that I look at the needle (I have a real needle that moves, not something liquid crystals) I put it right in the center of LA, and I press the 7th case (for the guitar is the 5th and 4th ..) and I look at what needle tells me this note "mi" is the one below for the mandolin .. Finally adpend how you give (the needle is not cal on the environment but on a scale DCAL), and then I place the following string with the same dcalage that told me the needle ... brief is visual, but at least your exact is like when I give ear, I have more than a quarter or 10 th of your trip that is, all my cords are awarded each and I have more souscis has just falls.
This mandolin is perfect my style of music, finally I want to play with, because frankly I do not dsign a particular style, I play what I want with it. Well, not mtal recess is plutt of traditional music, but if I want to play modern music, a little bit of rock, why not? ... do not care as long as a sound:-P
In fact it sounds trs well! One day I think an Irish musician who played the mandolin in a pub, he advised me I do not know what brand, saying that he nearly prvoir a little more money for the lectrifier do (because c'tait useful for concerts), and when he saw mine and he tried it dgout silent and said "especially not going to look for another, that is the really great, plus you got the microphone top dj! "
I jou acoustics for 10 years, but recently I started investing in effect, and I plugged into a T-rex Tonebug reverb, chorus, a Boss DC-3 and TC Electronic Delay ( Finally, I alternate is not always all at the same time) and it's really nice trs. As a result, the I'm glad it is electrified, even if I was not used for years as I had no need to add sound to the neighborhood, and acoustic sounds well enough to not feel the need to plug it.
Prior to the mandolin, I had a rear HRIT great aunt (a far back) of a Neapolitan mandolin (rounded to the body). He was missing a few strings (the beginners), grant c'tait difficult because many old mcaniques silent, and especially c'tait mga galre play, because a Get out camp all the time because of its shape! Had to be caught in the arms and legs, lie on if not "hop" she turned and slipped!
I came home one day a music shop in Paris, they had this mandolin MODEL (Fender), the silent cheap because there were two tiny hooked on it, and the price of truly silent risoire, about a hundred dollars. I tried, APRS have explained with difficulty, to the vendor who gave me that c'tait a mandolin, not a guitar, so the tuning diffrent silent, and that if I could not play on c'tait not know that I play, but he had agreed no matter how ... * Cough *
In short I am left with. I bought a crate Liverpool (UK), passing by chance in a shop that sold lots of mandolin, because "Paris is galre to find a box, cover and comes with simple m ' empchait to dare to carry it without risk. Now she follows me very easy, takes a lot less space than my bass:-P
yes, exprience, I do it again without hsiter this choice, and I will be very unhappy if my bad luck came a mandolin. I will go seek a London Direct (more than the choices down, it's more in their culture than in ours), and I repeat no one MODEL electrification hsiter see m MODEL me if it still!
