Chinrest Clamp Adjustment Range: 27 mm – 37 mm (1.06 in. – 1.46 in.)
Asked On: 05/07/2018
Hello, Barbara. While some establishments simply set violins up as violas, we make all of our violas with greater rib height to improve sound - even the 12-inch violas. For this reason a 1/2-size chinrest clamp might not always fit a 12-inch viola. However, here are the clamp ranges for the three Wittner Zuerich Chinrest sizes that we carry: 1/2-1/4 Violin: 27mm-37mm. 4/4-3/4 Violin: 32mm-40mm. Viola: 38mm-50mm. Measure the thickness of your viola where the clamp attaches to the instrument and if it falls well inside any of those ranges, you will have no trouble installing that chinrest. The plate on the Viola and 4/4-3/4 size chinrest are just slightly larger than the 1/2-1/4 size model.
