Excellent service. I received my merchandise in a timely manner with no issues. Thank you!
I'm 6'1" with a long neck. I wanted to play without a shoulder rest but no matter what chinrest I bought my violin kept falling off my collar bone or wouldn't hook under my jawbone to where I had to raise my left shoulder to keep the violin from slipping which in turn created tension in my neck ,shoulders & arms trying to keep it steady. So, I resorted to buying the Bon Musica. It worked great but I still wanted to be able to just pick up the violin without having to put the shoulder rest on or carrying extra pieces of equipment around. I took a chance with the 40mm and what a dream. It filled the gap between my neck and violin PERFECTLY. It hooked under my jawline without even having to clamp down. Due to the size, there is a bit of weight to the chinrest which helps keep the violin in place on your collarbone and steady. I barely and I mean BARELY do I have to rest my jaw on the chinrest and the violin doesn't budge,. The stress & tension in my shoulders and neck are totally eliminated. If your looking to play without a shoulder rest, you can't go wrong with this chinrest
Flesch Extra Tall Violin Chinrest is very comfortable for me. I ordered two sizes. I kept one and returned the other. Fiddlershop also gets 5 stars. Their customer service has never failed me. When I returned the rest I did not want to keep, my refund was credited to me promptly upon Fiddlershop’s receiving the returned item.
When I have bought a chinrest before a small tool was included. Tried it to raise my eyes and reduce the angle of my neck. Have an unusual position due to shoulder problems. Don't like shoulder rests. The tall chinrest made it difficult to see the bow on the strings.
