    Re: Sierra Hull plays a Duff octave mandolin

    If anyone is interested, I transcribed that video for my own practice (and in preparation for the Heiden Octave I should be getting any day now).

    Re: In Praise of Michael Heiden

    I love my F5 but I miss my old A-009. I wonder if anyone on the cafe bought it from Dusty Strings and if they like it and play it? I had to sell it to pay for my F5 (which is the joy of the world)...

    Re: Heiden string choices

    I use the D’Addario Chris Thile set and my Heiden likes the sturdier A string and E string, but I also used the Simonoff sets for a while and they were good too. I’ll try those GHS sets.

    Has anyone played a Hopf Model 34?

    Hi folks,

    I'm looking to enter the world of German classical mandolin, but of course don't want to start with a bespoke instrument at this stage. Anyone with experience will the D Hopf line of...
  12. Re: Fourth Finger or not to Fourth Finger, that is the question

    I'm liking the discussion. I'm on board with the fourth finger, use it all the time, but I wondered if there was something unconscious going on with the great players that gives them greater success...
  13. Re: Fourth Finger or not to Fourth Finger, that is the question

    Thanks! He says live on stage he goes for power, which is the third finger, but he "should" use the pinky. This is the crux of it, I think. Should he really?
  14. Re: Fourth Finger or not to Fourth Finger, that is the question

    I agree with you both, as I started with fiddle and moved to the mandolin in my late teens. That said, it does take more force to fret a pinky on a mandolin, and I wondered if, as upright players...
