Heiden Mandolins

Heiden mandolins are the result of a genuine interest in making the most responsive 'player friendly' instrument available. Customers frequently state their preferences for a deep yet bright and clear sound and an effortless 'woof'.

By using premium tone wood and carving to the optimum weight and stiffness, and by paying particular attention to the graduation of the top and back plates and the tone bars, you can achieve wonderful results in a new instrument.

There is no shortcut to having the warmth, tone and power of a 60 year old mandolin, yet you need not wait to have an instrument that is enjoyable and full sounding right away.

Eastern maple is used for the sides and neck. The hard sides provide a rigid rim which the top 'floats on, delivering more volume and sustain. The neck is reinforced with a carbon-fibre bar, providing stiffness while still transmitting vibrations. This is one of many important factors in an instrument's ability to to be clear and powerful.

Guaranteed to satisfy the most discerning player.
