Mach One Violin Shoulder Rest. Carved out of maple. Curly Maple
Superb Should Pad
I've had a Mach One shoulder pad for years now. The curve fits my shoulder well. The curly maple is beautiful and looks great on my violin. The shoulder pad gives me the support I need when I need it like when one plays the Brahms Violin Concerto. It is of high quality. The pads will never wear out nor ever harm the instrument. I've recommended to my students men and women who also found the wonderful support a bit of a revelation. Looks like a pad for a professional musician playing a fine instrument. I highly recommend it.
Great features with less padding
Securely holds the violin with the best non marking clamps on the market. The curved shoulder hook is a nice feature. The padding is quite thin however which requires chin pressure to feel comfortable. Otherwise this would be an exceptional go-to shoulder rest.
Mach One Violin Shoulder Rest Curly Maple
I tried the Mach One Violin Shoulder Rest Curly Maple and was not pleased with it. The curve did not fit me. There is not much comfort padding for your shoulder, either. I would not recommend this product. Shoulder rests are personal preference, but I could nit give it more than one star because it is so hard. I know, wood is hard. The problem is the padding on the wood. It is not soft and hurt my shoulder when I tried it. That said, I was extremely pleased with the service from Fiddlershop. I received a refund immediately after the returned product was received by them. I recommend Fiddlershop with 5 stars, but I can only gibe the Mach One Violin Shoulder Rest Curly Maple one star.
