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 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 ?
Excelent product!! I have finally found thanks to you a special tool that fits perfectly for me!
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!
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.
The height is perfect, but the shape isn’t very pleasant under my chin, and the thing looks ridiculous on my violin. Just wasn’t right for my body and aesthetic needs
