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. These additional pairs of 8 mm risers can be added in to make the chinrest as tall as is needed, reducing tension in players with longer necks or who prefer playing without a shoulder rest. Each set comes with one pair. Both must be used, raising the chinrest plate 8 mm in addition to the chosen 0 mm to 6 mm risers that adjust the tilt (included with the chinrest).

Made in Germany.

*Chinrest Not Included*


Item Includes

  • One pair of 8 mm risers
  • Two screws

Asked On: 07/21/2020

Are these extenders the same length as the ones that come with the Augsburg? I have the extenders that came with the Augsburg set all the way up. Well these allow for me to set the chinrest even higher? Thanks, Scott

SHAR Answer:

Hi David, thanks for your questions! Yes, these extenders are the same height as the pair included with the Augsburg. They can be used with the chinrest to add additional height to your current setup. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Do these work with the hypoallergenic models?

SHAR Answer:

Hello, Lisa. All of the Wittner chinrests are hypoallergenic, being made of plastic. However, these height adapters only work with the chinrests that are designated "Augsburg" or "Zuerich". The original model is not height or tilt adjustable.
