There are many models of violin chin rest. We keep the ones we feel are most popular and comfortable.
There are two types of fitting; centrally over the tailpiece and to the bass side of the tailpiece.
Extra care must be taken when fitting the latter, as if it is clamped too tightly it can distort the rib.
Note, If the rest fits the instrument well, it should not need to be very tightly clamped.
For better quality instruments, we suggest a professional fitting where the sufaces of the parts that are in contact with the violin are shaped to fit that particular instrument. The cork is often changed for this better fitting.
