Asked On: 05/03/2018

I recently purchased Item 1127CHE (Guarneri Continental Chinrest Ebony Hill Clamps). Although I like most all features of this chinrest, I feel as though I need a larger plate. How does the 1127GHE compare to the above? Is the plate on Vintage Gotz chinrest actually larger? And, in what other ways is it different or similar from/to the 1127CHE. Obviously I am in search of the perfect chinrest!

SHAR Answer:

Hello, Suzanne. The 1127GHE chinrest (by Goetz) does in fact have a larger plate than the 1127CHE you purchased. The plate on the 1127GHE is also flatter where it goes over the tailpiece and along the edge of the plate, whereas the 1127CHE rises higher and is rounded with a hump above the tailpiece, then slopes down to a valley where the jaw crosses the edge of the plate. The 1127DHE is very similar to the 1127GHE in shape, but is made in India. The 1127GHE offers top-choice cork, very fine hardware, slightly more streamlined carving, and very consistent, tightly grained ebony.
