Ah yes, I got that one for a steal as the luthier had built it as a prototype and wanted to find a home for it!
If you're into gypsy jazz you can find our music on CD Baby, I've been playing with Ranger for 12 years now I think?? Time flies…

Built this Vellum setup really quick, it's a bit slow and jittery but hopefully gives you some ideas! There are probably 10 other ways to set this up of course, I'd keep experimenting to find other options that might work better.

Hadn't heard of Hamlett mandos, but they look and sound great!! No banjo shame needed, I have a little banjo uke I pull out from time to time. And a cheap mandola, and old a-style that I can't get rid of cuz Chris Thile signed it, and what I call my ManTar… an Arrow 5-string tenor guitar, gypsy-jazz style with a small oval soundhole, tuned CGDAE an octave below my emando. Fun stuff!

Haha, first time I've heard that from another Houdini user! I take it you're a musician too? Love my 5-string Mann, been gigging with it for years. Also have a Breedlove Cascade acoustic mando.
Glad you sorted out the issue.
As for the setup, I think I've got a sample setup laying around on my HD, will see if I can find something that will point you in the right direction!
