About This Item

Make your chinrest as tall as you need!

It is recognized by many violinists and violists that shoulder rests are only half of the equation when finding the most comfortable and effective way to hold their instruments. Chinrests often get ignored as a static part of the instrument, when really research has shown that it may be more important in offering a relaxed posture that fits your unique body!

The Augsburg and Zuerich Chinrests by Wittner are not only made from comfortable and hypoallergenic plastic, but they come with interchangeable risers to adjust the tilt in a way that allows for different instrument and jaw angles. Additional 8 mm risers can be added in pairs to make the chinrest as tall as is needed, reducing tension in players with longer necks or who prefer playing without a shoulder rest.

Made in Germany.

Features/Specs

Chinrest Clamp Adjustment Range: 32 mm – 40 mm (1.26 in. – 1.57 in.)

Customer Questions

Question by:

  • MAIXUAN PHAN
  • BROOKLINE, MA

Asked On: 06/26/2021

Will this chin rest fit a 3/4 size violin? If not, is there another center mount chin rest that would fit?

SHAR Answer:

Hi Maixuan, thank you for your question. This chinrest may actually fit as long as the 3/4 violin falls within the 32 mm – 40 mm (1.26 in. – 1.57 in.) range for the clamp. However, we'd strongly recommend item 1120F34 to be safe.

  • OMAHA, NE

Asked On: 12/02/2020

Does this chinrest fit a 1/10 violin? If not, is there another center mount chinrest that will? Thanks!

SHAR Answer:

Hi Rebecca, thank you for your question! This item will likely not fit a 1/10 size violin. However, our Guarneri Mini chin rests (Item# 1127E110) will fit violins from 1/10 - 1/16 size.

Question by:

  • CHRIS TEMMING
  • AUBURN, KS

Asked On: 11/13/2020

Will this fit a half size violin?

SHAR Answer:

Hi Chris, thanks for your question! It's not likely that the feet of this chinrest are short enough for a 1/2 size violin. You may want to consider Item# WZ258 12 instead!

Question by:

  • Joe Schenkman
  • Rochester, VT

Asked On: 03/23/2019

Can you close the average violin case with chin rest on?

SHAR Answer:

Hi Joe! Yes, most cases will have no problem closing. You may need to adjust the chinrest to a lower position to fit properly in a shallow case. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
