Asked On: 05/04/2020

Hello, I wanted to know what is the difference between this chinrest and the "Wittner Augsburg Violin Chinrest - 4/4 Size" that you have published. Does this chinrest work with the 8mm Adapters? Thank you!

SHAR Answer:

Hi Guillermo, thanks for your question! The Wittner Hypoallergenic chinrest does not offer the adjustability of the Augsburg model. The Hypoallergenic model will not work with the 8mm adapters. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Asked On: 09/15/2016

What size viola does this chinrest fit? We have a 12 inch in need of a center chinrest.

SHAR Answer:

Thanks for your question Anna! A 12 inch viola is typically similar in size to a 1/2 size violin. This particular chinrest might be a bit large for your instrument. We do carry a Flesch Center Mounted Chinrest that fits 1/2 size violin/12 inch viola. Hope this helps!

Asked On: 07/24/2016

This chinrest was recommended to me for my violin....if it doesn't work out for me, is it returnable?

SHAR Answer:

Hi Stanley, thanks for your question! Yes, if it doesn't end up being quite what you're looking for, it is returnable under our return policy: We might suggest that you try out a few chinrests and return whatever doesn't work. We do carry a few other center-mounted chinrests as well if you're interested in trying out a few different ones. As a violinist myself who made the switch to a center-mounted chinrest a few years ago (from using a Guarneri style for years), I can attest that it has worked well for me personally and helped me with my set-up and alignment (although everybody's experience is different and every body is shaped differently). Hope you'll like it!
