    If you used just the standard input on the Crate Limo, my guess is that you're going to have the same issue with the D4 cutting out if you use the line out to go to the PA. Does the D4 cut out with...

    You might have an issue with the D4. It shouldn't cut out the sound at all, since the LINE OUT is basically a straight signal for a DI box (which I've used in that capacity regularly). What input did...

    Deering actually built theirs like a banjo, and are using a standard 11" rim for it, so that one will easily accept steel strings (depending on gauge, of course).

    That's pretty close to the regular wound low G string that many use for their tenor, so on the soprano it should be fine, albeit on the loose side.

    I'm another that will ultimately buy an instrument because of sound, but will admit that I have to like the look of it first in order to pick it up. Playability isn't really a factor to me, unless...

    You probably talked to Mike Albronda then, if you called the showroom. Mike is good people.

    The Q400 is adorable; I got to hold one at NAMM and yeah, it's just adorable. You can play a song...

    I don't think it's out yet. I saw it and the Quantum800 at NAMM in January, but didn't have a chance to try either of them.

    Yeah, Mike is correct; the part/model number for the Double Four is BG-75 and the PJB site confirms the 70w rating.

    Was the Southcoast Low G a wound string? Wound strings that are very low tension will sound really loud and/or boomy.

    That's usually the first thing people think/say when I walk into any gig setting with the Double Four; it can't handle it. Five minutes in, they're usually fine.

    If it helps, I've used the Double...

    It doesn't crush the wound wires, but on heavier strings definitely isn't easy to do (I've had to do it on a couple of .055 gauge classical strings to try them out).

    It's not ideal, but it will...

    Good point. I wish the DF would've come with a carrying bag, like the Cub did (or, it didn't when I originally got mine). I have a backpack that seems like it was made for the DF, but to have that...

    Short answer: yes, you can tie them in a knot and put a ball on it.

    You definitely don't want to tune a set put together for E-E tuning up a fourth, for sure. As for being "floppy," that's really up to personal preference.

    I'm looking at the Requinto gauges of...

    I'm surprised that you couldn't get a .040 nylon string from Just Strings. What did you ask for, specifically?

    http://www.juststrings.com/ghs-t3w.html - the T3W is a .040 nylon...

    Most often they'll be the exact same strings, just cut different lengths and in different packages.

    That said, since the Cordoba mini is recommended for A tuning, is a short scale and uses ball...

    As a final selling point, if you call the number on the PJB World site, you'll speak to either Phil directly, or his wife, Freida. Both are incredibly wonderful people.

    +1. The Double Four, while meant as a practice amp, is the Ferrari (or insert high-performance sports car) of that market. The Fender Rumbler really isn't anything close, especially in terms of...

    Scale length of the instrument does play a critical part in how strings feel and sound, as does the material used. I was really leery when the 5 string version came out, specifically for this reason....
