Stuber Chin rest
Super fast service.. And the best chin rest I’ve ever used
The traditional chinest and most variants of it dug painfully into my jaw. I wound up getting the center mounted berber, which was very comfortable until I started doing more shifts and I found the lack of ability to "hook" effectively was leading me to scrunch my shoulder during shifts that I couldn't conciously stop. Also, when I removed it, there was far more rosin build up for my liking so I'm turned off to bulky center mounts now. I was originally considering 4 chinrests as possibilities but threw the Struber, 2 others, and the moldable chinrest cushion in to make sure I got it right. If you're unlucky enough not to work well with the traditional chinrests, finding the right one is like finding Cinderella's slipper as all of them have subtle curve differences. Despite the inconvenience, it was well worth it to buy a variety. I also bought the 30mm extra tall Hamburg and initially thought I struck gold (at least with the design, the item weighs as much as a car ornament and would be eligible as a projectile weapon) but I realized I needed the give of the gentle slope. The Struber's tallest side appears and feels like the same height as the 30mm. The boxwood is super lightweight and my violin responds very well to it. As always, awesome customer service.
Due to smaller surface of contact, thickness, and edges, it hurts my chin. It doesn't cover the tailpiece, which might end up being used as an extension of this small area chinrest. I am not using it.
Doesn’t match product description
The Chinrest is of good quality but I was very disappointed in that it was only 3/4 high at its highest point. I didn’t even try it. The reason I ordered it was for the side mount and it’s described height. I am hoping to return it. Fiddlershop is the best.
It was better than what I had before but still not comfortable. it was the molded chinrest that actually helped more. I am able to rest my chin now comfortably alone with the shoulder rest now I just have to PRACTICE.
