Very Comfortable (But Not As Pretty) Chinrest

I was at a music festival and in desperation I asked a luthier for advice on what would help me hold my fiddle without the fidgetting and pain in the neck. He recommended this chinrest and said he puts it on all the instruments he builds. I was a little sad to part with my beautiful rosewood (but cruelly painful) chinrest. But hey, comfort over beauty. And you know something --- it worked! Much better. Not as pretty, but a lot more comfortable. A side note: I've noticed that Wittner is slowly taking over my fiddle --- first the pegs, now the chinrest. What's next? Their stuff seems to be well-designed.

Its alright

I have this same chin rest. It feels great, but if your going for looks, this isn't for you. It's plastic but it feels good so you have to give up some points for the looks. Its easy to put on but the plastic is questionable. Your choice

The Best Ever

After struggling for years with my violin "mark" on my neck, I was willing to pay what it cost to play my violin without injury. Many of the chinrests that I had tried pinched my skin and infected the area. I was delighted when I tried this one after my teacher had recommended it. Playing my violin has never felt so good. This is very easy to work with, being very versitile - working well in various positions and the different "holds" of musicians. It is also extremely affordable, so you don't really have anything to lose. I am now a teacher myself, and often recommend these to my students.

Great Chin Rest

Very comfortable and DEFINITELY less irritating than other chinrests. I am a violinist with the NJ Symphony Orchestra and playing constantly has resulted in a mild contact dermatitis that this product has helped alleviate.It has made a noticeable improvement in my post performance comfort. The fact that you don't need to use excessive pressure to keep this chinrest on the instrument is also a welcome bonus. Highly recommended!
