Because of the quality of both their strings and rosin, PIRASTRO has become the byword for a sound which is both beautiful and reliable. As a result, a great number of string musicians play and recommend PIRASTRO strings. With their tonal flexibility and expressive power, PIRASTRO strings have inspired musicians to create their own unique sound by taking full advantage of their instruments best qualities. Each individual string in the PIRASTRO line has been meticulously crafted to provide musicians with an unsurpassed choice in tonal colors. Musicians can choose from the complete range of gut strings (e.g. Passione and Oliv) to synthetic strings (such as Evah Pirazzi and Tonica) or steel (e.g. Flexocor and Chromcor). Finally, PIRASTRO rosins are designed specifically for use with PIRASTRO strings and this combination is responsible, in no small part, for the excellent world-renowned PIRASTRO sound.
This is by far the best shoulder rest I have ever used. It does not fall off, or requiring any extra effort to hold it on the shoulder to keep the violin secure. I have noticed a significant reduction in neck strain and pain. (It is worth the price.) Unfortunately, the original one did not fit in my violin case, so I ended up purchasing the one with the foldable legs. Overall, I think the original is slightly more comfortable...but I'm very happy with both.
Our teacher has the original PIRASTRO Korfker Shoulder Rest which she loves, but she says the shoulder rest takes time and to customize and may be difficult for a student to use. I saw this new, simpler version and decided to try it for my son who is in 8th grade and is in a full size violin. He loves it - it is easy to use and is the best shoulder rest we’ve had. We love the ergonomic design and the lightness of the material. No extra noise -as we had experienced with the Wolf Forte. The Korfker LUNA is comfortable and sounds great!
This shoulder rest is great. So comfortable and can custom fit to instrument. While it cannot be molded like the more expensive version, I find it has eliminated my shoulder pain. Lightweight and helps the sound of my instrument by not dampening it. Would highly recommend! Worth the price.
