The all new Holstein Comfort Chinrest is really comfortable. That's why we call it the "Comfort" chinrest!
Stylish and Functional
The Comfort Chinrest accommodates many different playing positions thanks to the strong, yet gentle curves. The high arch over the tailpiece is a delight for players looking for a tall chinrest, descending to more standard chinrest height in the center. Weights can vary as these are all hand-made individually. Here are the average weights;
Ebony 68 grams
Rosewood 58 grams
Boxwood 52 grams
- 28mm at highest point
- 19mm at lowest point
Lean Back and Get Comfy
The Comfort chinrest promotes a slightly tilted head position, as commonly seen by violinists like Vadim Repin, Joshua Bell and many others. However, it is delightful with more vertical head positions as well.
I purchased the rosewood, and I really think it’s quite lovely aesthetically. More importantly, it’s extremely comfortable. I’m slender and tall, so finding the right combination of shoulder rest and chin rest has taken some time! I had a lovely experience with customer service who recommended the shoulder rest, and this was the final piece to the comfort puzzle!
Great service. Violin Chinrest is so comfortable. I am so glad I made this purchase and highly recommend it to anyone searching for a comfortable chinrest for their violin.
Love it!!! Comfortable, excellent quality. Provides great stability even without a shoulder rest. No negative impact on tone or resonance. Thanks Fiddlershop!
Finally, a chin rest that fits me without having to excessively raise my shoulder rest and have the violin be unstable. This way, the violin is firm on my collarbone and the shoulder rest is at a level at which it isn’t mechanically stressed. Please let me know when the other woods will be back in stock. I would like to change the chin rests on my other violins too
For me, this chinrest did not do the trick. The side closest to the F-hole was too high and pushed up weird on my upper cheek.
