About This Item

Even more ergonomic than the famous original Mach One, the new "Hook" model rises to new levels of comfort for the busy player. Crafted in Canada of North American Maple, The Hook is a mere 5mm thick. A thin leather pad replaces the usual thick foam cushion, no longer needed for this design.
Luthier Peter Mach�s intent in designing The Hook was for the shoulder rest to hug the shoulder even more, for a more comfortable fit. Violin Hook fits both 4/4 and 3/4 violins, while the viola model will easily fit violas with lower bouts in the 230-266 mm range between 9" and 10 1/2".

Are the Feet height adjustable? Been trying to learn violin for the last year without shoulder rest, and it is not working. i have no stability, and I have to raise should and crimp neck even after getting a higher chin rest. Your opinion on this model?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Lynn! Playing without a shoulder rest is definitely not comfortable for most. This shoulder rest has an ergonomic shape that would ease your discomfort. The feet can be screwed in or out further to slightly adjust the height. If you think you may need more height, consider one of our Wolf shoulder rests, as they adjust up to 3 inches tall, where this Mach One adjusts to slightly over 2 inches tall. Let us know if you have any other questions!

Asked On: 05/16/2018

How does this shoulder rest compare to the bon musica? Bon musica is what I currently have and it helps keep my shoulder from raising, but it can be a bit too restrictive. Do you think it could help keep my shoulder down while not locking me in too much?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Amanda! This Mach One is structurally similar to the Bonmusica and will likely feel the same and offer similar support. The Mach One will offer more resonance than the Bonmusica. If you are looking for something that would still give you the height and support you need, but will be more flexible and less restrictive, I would recommend the Wolf Primo Violin Shoulder Rest. I hope this helps!
