The completely new Holstein Freedom Chinrest is a bold redesign of the modern chinrest. With 20% less surface area, and 25% less weight than a standard Guarneri chinrest, it's the most exciting thing to happen to chinrests since Louis Spohr!
Lighter is Better
The standard Guarneri chinrest weighs in at 60 grams, but the Holstein Freedom is only a mere 40-44 grams. That's 25% less mass attached to the instrument. Removing this weight and reducing the feet size means the violin can vibrate more freely, and will sound more resonant.
More Violin, Less Chinrest
The smaller size of this chinrest means that you can see more of your beautiful instrument, and less chinrest. The sleek design provides the ergonomics you need as a modern violinist, with minimal visual obstruction.
The highest point of this chinrest is 7/8 of an inch. Over the tailpiece the height is approximately 3/4 of an inch, where the chin sits.
Unlike Anything You've Ever Seen
The Freedom chinrest is sure to catch the eye of your fellow violinist because this unique design was made exclusively for Fiddlershop.com. Choose the wood type that compliments your tailpiece and pegs, or mix and match as desired.
- Currently available in Ebony, Rosewood and Boxwood
The Holstein Freedom Violin Chinrest is beautiful and functional. It is very comfortable and provides excellent support without a shoulder rest. It has improved the look of my violin. I also ordered the round red pads in lieu of using a shoulder rest. I am very happy with my purchases. I recently discovered Fiddlershop and my new idol Fiddlerman. I will be making all of my future violin related purchases here. Thank you Fiddlerman!
great assortment of quality parts.

Exactly what I needed.
The Freedom Violin Chinrest provides the exact control I need to control my intonation. I didn’t realize how crucial this was for my playing. I’ve tried several other chinrests, and this one really works. Looks great, too.
Perfect for what I needed.
As a professional symphonic violist with a big awkward viola, this chinrest allows the maximum amount of “lip” to hold onto my intstrument in a variety of neck configurations. Wearing a tuxedo with many layers, I need as much security from a chinrest as possible and this provides plenty to hold onto. The light weight also contributes in a small way to having more projection and clarity. Would love to order it made from pernambuco, Fiddlershop please produce it!
Perfect shape! fits a tall Bradavarius tail piece attachment, minimal overhang over top of the violin still allows me to hold the violin under jaw without much pressure, feels balanced. Good price, too!
