Pros: A good shape for securing the fiddle under the chin - hands free.
Cons: The cork was rather ungenerous. But I could easily fix that.
Other: Excellent value and service from StringZone.

Pros: Nice, smooth rest and fairly easy to attach, though I had to buy a key separately. (I could have used a paperclip). Looks very attractive on my fiddle and would look good on most instruments.
Cons: There are problems with the exact fit on my particular instrument but there is no advice at all in the package. Some advice on fitting might help, though information is available online so it isn't essential.
Try before you purchase.
Pros: Excellent finish at a reasonable price. Very professional service.
Cons: Unable to use this chinrest on any of my violins as the cutaway portion to clear the tailpiece is not sufficient. I can rectify this problem so decided to keep it and will attend to it when I have the opportunity.
Other: I strongly suggest trying before purchasing. The manufacture of this product should consider re-designing it.
