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.

Chins up

Extra tall chinrest was very uncomfortable for me and forced my head into a strange downward angle.

Very grateful to have this

When I had neck surgery 17 years ago, my violin playing had to cease. I have a very long neck and had gotten used to playing with a standard chin rest and Kun shoulder rest, but that became impossible after surgery. Last week I tried the 50mm chin rest with a Bon Musica shoulder rest, and I can hold a violin again! Not only that, I can do so without any abnormal tension in my neck or shoulder (I think I had been playing the wrong way my entire life.) Now I just have a whole lot of practicing to do...

Chinrest quest.

As a player with a long neck I thought this chinrest might work. It turned out to be very uncomfortable and forced by hear too far forward.

Too tall!

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!
