About This Item

The Remarkable Chinrest That May Well Change Your Life!
Click here for tips from Kréddle.

There are hundreds of different types of chinrests. Finding the one that fits your chin and your playing style is often a long and arduous process, and too often an unsuccessful one. Even though there is such a great variety, they all have one thing in common: Each one is fixed in place on your instrument, with little to no adjustment possible. The result is that most of us simply make do – we adapt to our chinrest, all the while struggling to improve our technical facility. Perhaps we try dozens of different shoulder rests, complicating things further. And too often, we start developing aches and pains . . . or worse.

The Kréddle changes all that! The most significant innovation since the invention of the chinrest itself, the Kréddle will set you free like a breath of fresh air. The reason is that the Kréddle adapts to the unique physical characteristics of each player by being fully adjustable in multiple ways: Height, lateral placement, tilt, pitch, and rotation. Although this may sound complicated, it is remarkably easy to adjust your Kréddle using only the simple hex wrench provided. Detailed online instructions go well beyond mere technical descriptions, and into the realm of teaching you to discover your own “sweet spot”. Imagine the Aha Moment when discomfort slips away, and a world of new possibilities presents itself.

The Kréddle is precision crafted in the US by Jordan Hayes, a professional violinist who suffered like most players, refusing to give up until he found the solution. Available for both violin and viola, and in your choice of side mount (to the left of the tailpiece, the most popular), or center mount (over the tailpiece). The side mount offers slightly more adjustability, while the center mount equalizes clamping pressure more uniformly. Regardless of which mounting method is used, the position and flexibility of the Kréddle itself is identical. Beautifully boxed, with hex wrench and three different height posts included.

Due to the handmade nature of Kreddles, supplies are very limited. If your size or style is out of stock, please place a back-order to reserve yours today - More Kreddles are due to arrive in August. You will not be billed until your Kreddle ships.

Question by:

  • College Station, TX

Asked On: 05/28/2017

Hi Shar Music Shop, I heard you from my son's school Orchestra teacher by asking a customized chinrest as his neck is relatively long than others. I have some questions and concerns about ordering this products about the height. You may have different sizes about the height, but I am not sure about if it is just right for meeting my son's need?

SHAR Answer:

Hi Guozhen, thanks for your question! Finding the right fit for a chinrest can be difficult but the Kreddle is a great place to start. It can be customized by adjusting the height, lateral placement, tilt, pitch, and rotation. If the chinrest doesn't meet your son's need, it can be returned for full refund with 30 days of the purchase. If you have specific questions regarding this chinrest, please feel free to contact us directly at 1-800-248-7427 and we would be happy help!
