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.

For this chin rest what is the bracket height adjustment range? My son's violin has 2.6cm in rib height. Does Kreddle accommodate it?

SHAR Answer:

Hi Jiji! The bracket height can be adjusted from approximately 4.5 cm to 3.3 cm. This chinrest is intended to be used with a full sized violin. I would recommend looking for a chinrest designed to fit fractional/smaller sized instruments. Thanks for your question!

Asked On: 11/21/2016

Hello - I have an old violin that is a bit thinner. How tight/small do the clamps/brackets adjust? I have a Guarneri chinrest from Shar that does not clamp tight enough to be solid on the violin, so I want to be sure this will fit tight. What is the return policy on this item?

SHAR Answer:

Hi Eden! The chinrest clamps adjust from 1 3/8" to 1 7/8" in width. If the chinrest does not fit your instrument properly or you are not satisfied with this item for any reason, you may return it for a full refund within 30 days of purchase. Hope this helps!
