Mandolin sound

Recommended Posts

I've just built one this evening - Workbench file attached (I think!) Good luck with it 


I muted the low E and A strings on a 12-string (actually, it might have ended up on the Jumbo body, but still with the secondary strings). I "split the difference" on shifting the pitch, so it's correct with a capo on the 7th fret - it also balances authentic feel vs playability on my JTV-69. I tweaked the mix of the secondary strings, and added octaves (wrong, I know!) so they're a bit more evident.


In the past (i.e., on last week's shows!), I've faked it with a capo at the 12-fret in standard tuning, but I want to practice playing in mandolin tuning (and maybe use it on a gig before too long)
