These extra tall chinrests were designed to give violinists and violists the most comfortable playing experience possible, and specifically meet the needs of players with taller necks.
The Guarneri model is a center mounted chinrest that attaches to the instrument with the usual chin rest key (or paper clip if necessary). No special tools are required, and in most cases, it won't impact closing the lid of the case at all.
The Guarneri model is quite possibly the most popular style of chinrest around the world, and this extra tall version simply meets players where they are at. No more clinching. No more lifting shoulders.

I was very, very, very,very
I was very, very, very,very impressed with your service. Your promptness, your willingness to help was very impressive. I would recommend you without hesitation. If only you could help me with my VIBRATO!!! Any thoughts ?
I ordered the tall chinrest to try to accomplish more height so I could lower my shoulder rest. The 40mm chinrest was too tall. I felt as though I was sniffing the clouds and my neck definitely was unhappy. Perhaps in the future will try a 30mm; maybe better for me. I returned to rest and received a prompt refund. Thanks Fiddlershop!
Extra tall chin rest
Excelent product!! I have finally found thanks to you a special tool that fits perfectly for me!
Very happy with the Guarneri model Extra Tall (50mm) Chinrest and with Fiddleshop who delivered it here quite quickly. Chose the chinrest because I prefer not to use a shoulder rest. Like the feel of the violin on my shoulder. With the chinrest, I don't have to tilt my head towards my shoulder, thus keeping proper head/neck/spine alignment.
Best solution for long neck person
I struggled on holding violin naturally all the time. I watched a video on YouTube got to know Pierre helped someone like me to solved problem on slipping shoulder rest by adjust chin rest. I was thought 30 mm height is good enough. But this type is sold out. I purchased a 40 mm one instead immediately. It came fast and was well packaged. It is a little bit high for me. I have to adjust my shoulder rest to the lowest level. One of my shoulder rest will drop during playing. the other one is perfect fitted. The good thing is that I can now play violin over one hour continually without any discomfort on neck, shoulder and arm. Adjust chin rest is the best solution for me. Only one small defect: It is a little bit heavy. Suggestion: add height information on another chin rest will help customer choose right one easily. One small regret: I did not browse website carefully. I found today that SAS chin rest might be better for me, as it has different height and some flexibility of rotation. This is the first time I purchase violin accessory online. FiddlerShop is impressive.
