SAS Chinrest -Original Model Violin - Ebony or Rosewood
* Please note that the rosewood used for this chinrest is of a very light color, as shown in the main picture.
New SAS chin rest is remarkable, allowing for modern playing technique without affecting the individuality of handling the instrument. Its fabrication is compact, yet perfectly elegant design. Available in 4 different heights 24, 28, 32, 35mm to suit almost everyone. The rest can be adjusted to pivot towards the left or right of the violin.
The importance of wood as natural material without varnish is conspicuous, while the precious metal segment is goldplated. It is therefore health-conscious, as the chin piece is in constant touch with the skin. The new chin piece is superb and ideal also because it reaches over the tail piece. This way it offers several manners of holding the instrument. It is fixed above the violin block and it could be tightly screwed in. This model of chin piece is definitely going to become popular very soon, as it is suitable for everybody, from complete beginners to professionals.
Available in two wood materials:
Very adjustable. Like the assortment of heights. I have along neck so the 35mm works well.
Fiddlershop was excellent as always, but the SAS was too flat for me and did not support the violin. The violin kept slipping despite trying the different cants on the chinrest, as well as, 3 different shoulder rests. Nice design with silicon instead of cork on the feet.
Fiddlershop was awesome, but the SAS chinrest was very uncomfortable for me. Even though the chinrest tilts from one side to another, the cup was too flat for me and resulted in the scroll pointing down to the floor.
It’s pretty good, it just pinched my neck a little bit because of the pieces that go attached to the violin. I finally found a way that’s comfortable for me, but it took me a while
My buying experience was unfortunate. Chin too high for my neck
