Reply To: shoulder rest torture
Do you have a long neck? I have found that I need an extra tall chin rest for my long neck. Once I did that, I was comfortable with several different shoulder rests. So far, my favorite chin rest is the Wave I. It is pricey, but he has a 30 day money back guarantee.
As for shoulder rests, so far I like the Wolf Secondo the most. My second favorite is the Kun Super. But I am still experimenting till I find the “one”. I tried the Bon Musica. I think it works well if you like the chin rest on the left side, but if you prefer it in the middle, the Bon Musica is too far over the shoulder to be comfortable to me.
Tomorrow, my Wittner Augsburg arrives. I will try it for a few days and let you guys know if I like it better than the Wave I.
