More than just a novelty!

I have a Ming-Jiang Zhu G925A with boxwood fittings(or is it jujube wood...?) from 2014, before the Noble Heart workshop started fitting them with rosewood accessories. It has a wonderful, luscious, dark tone, though the Guarneri style chin rest that came with this model was rather uncomfortable to play on for long periods of time. I’d often quit practicing long before I wanted to. Enter this chin rest- for one, the rest has defied my expectations of possible discomfort due to there being less surface on the cup itself. It’s actually quite supportive on the left side where I tend to rest my chin as it curves up ever-so-slightly and holds my chin as well as my jaw in place(I am a die-hard fan of side-mounted rests on principle because of their ergonomic advantages towards my own way of holding my instrument). Plus, it looks pretty nifty in boxwood and matches my violin’s standard outfit. It’s maybe a shade lighter. I so wish I could upload a photo of it! I also ordered the Stradpet titanium chin rest U-clamp hardware along with this rest to further reduce the mass on the instrument and improve resonance, and the main advantages as far as sound goes are very significant. Not only does the total chin rest assembly weigh in at a mere 30 grams(!) including clamping hardware vs. 52 total grams for the old rest, but the top plate vibrates more openly and there’s a larger range of overtones that wasn’t there before. The upper register has never sung so sweetly, and my violin now produces more raw power over the entire tonal spectrum than I’d ever thought possible. I’m very satisfied with my purchase here. Thanks, Fiddlershop!!!

Chin rest

The quality is excellent but it’s not as comfortable as I thought it would be. I think that’s because it’s just to big for me though.

Different but good

This chinrest works well. I let a couple of friends play my instrument. One commented that it looked different. It seems very comfortable to me.

Holstien Chin Rest

This rest was sent in a timely manner and I wanted to check it out. It turned out to ride a little higher that I anticipated but I may still find myself using it in the future. Good rest.

Love it!

Love this chinrest. "Freedom" is definitely the right name. I've been looking for something like this that would provide more ease of movement without feeling stuck and prohibited by squeezing with my shoulder and and collarbone. This is it!The violin can rest across my collarbone and I can move my left hand and arm much more freely than with traditional chinrests.
