Anyone familiar with the Epi MM50 mandolin? I'm looking for something else I can't play.
Want something really humbling? Try a fiddle...!
I don't have the mm50 but the mm30 the drop shaped one. I really like it, for the price it sounds great. Get the store to set it up because I found setting the intonation really nerve racking. I kept expecting the bridge to fall over. it stays in tune great too, I never have any issues with the tuning stability.
I find it really easy to play. the hard part was just thinking of songs to play. Look up Mandolessions on youtube. that guy is great he'll walk you through songs showing how to play them. At a great pace too not too slow, not too fast.
Thanks. I checked Mando Cafe and the MM 50 is not recommended, but the MM 30 is.
Maybe a banjo or cello instead.
Resonator! Let everyone in the area hear your bad playing!
Mandolin and banjo.
I tried a Gretsch 9200. GC and the neighboring area asked me to stop.
Oh Hell Yeah!
Ha! It's the reason I don't get one. no volume control, but I'd still love to have one. I meant to ask, you were looking at the MM-50, why not the MM-30?
I love this! Except for the mandolin and banjo's...
I like the look of the F style mainly. Doing some checking though it seems like the A style would be better suited to a no talent hack like me. Looking at MM30’s/A style now
LOL I had the same hankering for something different a few years ago, I bought a cheap mandolin to try & if I didn't like it I wouldn't be too much out of pocket if I sold it on.
You really need to try one as they are great fun with just a few chords under your belt.
I learned a couple of chords & had a play along to Steve Earle's Copperhead rd.
Seems the big thing with the mandolin is a really, really good setup, as Steven mentioned. This is a point that is really a stickler at Mando Cafe. They say that you need a mandolin guy to do a proper setup as it is completely different than a guitar. Thanks everybody for the input. And the cello/banjo stuff. Priceless.
Maybe I’ll go with an accordion or hammered dulcimer instead.
That's how I ended up feeling after buying, and trying to learn, a pedal steel guitar. I remember starting off telling myself, how much different from a guitar could it be?
I really like these guys.
Wait... Sorry, that's a Bayan, which is different than the chromatic squeezeboxes most are familiar with. Frankly I find it more impressive than the next clip...but YMMV.
There ya go. Wouldn't want to get dinged on a technicality!
Hammer that Dulcimer!
One more... she's that good.
Why are people playing Iron Maiden on all of these "unconventional" instruments? When I say unconventional I mean for the genre.
C'mon people, what did The Trooper ever do to you??
Up The Irons!!
