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.
Great customer service
I contacted Customer service as soon as I received my Holstein Comfort violin chin rest when I realized it was too high for my neck. The representative who wrote me back gave me easy instructions for the return and the cost was promptly refunded. I will continue to do business with 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
Holstein Comfort Chinrest
Once again Fiddlershop has met my need for a comfortable violin accessory. I have an angular chin and this chinrest is perfect for me, having tried many other styles and heights. You have my gratitude.
Holstein comfort chinrest
This chinrest fits my needs perfectly. I have a long neck and angular jaw and this is, indeed, a comfortable chinrest for me. Well made and stable. Again, thanks to Fiddlershop for quality products and accurate, informative product descriptions and reviews.
If you are in the market for a new, more comfortable chinrest, look no further. This chinrest is amazing, and so much more comfortable than some that are 2 or 3 times as expensive. As someone that doesn't use a shoulder rest, this was exactly what I was hoping for. Fiddlerman does it again!
