So Murata-De Oro 2-2 so far...
Footstool +1, but -infinity from me.
The hooks and bumps on my nails require me to shape them in a very specific way, which in turn forces me to play at a certain angle to the strings that makes my wrist bent. My ideal position is with a very high neck like a cello that I can't achieve with a footstool. I've read it's not possible to get a steep neck angle with Murata (here viewtopic.php?t=82847
). I'm thinking of combining it with a footstool at low level to achieve the desired angle. The De Oro probably can provide me the needed angle without a footstool and more adjustability but I don't like suction cups et al, especially with a matte finish.
