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.
- Nickel Silver barrels
- Cork lined bottom and clamp
- 30mm (height from bottom to top of chinrest)
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.
Extra tall chin rest
Excelent product!! I have finally found thanks to you a special tool that fits perfectly for me!
Long neck and tiny shoulders
So the regular Guarneri chin rest fits my chin but I needed to fill some extra inches. This is a good chin rest for people with long necks who look straight ahead and only slightly to the left when they are playing, kind of like a center chin rest but with a better fit for the jaw. Nice transaction, shipped immediately and good price.
The 30mm is perfect for my 14 year old
We initially ordered the 40mm, but it’s just a bit too large for a teenager and intended more for adults. He is pretty tall for his age (around 5’9”with a long neck), but not quite ready for the adult size. Was glad Fiddlershop was accommodating with the exchange.
Extra tall chinrest
This is a nice chinrest, and I like that it comes in different heights. Unfortunately, the Guarneri shape was not right for my jaw, and I had to return it. I bought at Fiddlershop because I knew they would take it back without a problem. I can't fault the chinrest--it will be the right one for someone else.
