Pros: It has a great shape- much improved on the Kun. Also very solid feeling and those feet are amazing!!! The rest just doesnt come off- these are a major improvement, MUCH better than anything Ive used previously...bring on those feet!!!! very solid

Cons: For me its not high enough on one side, longer feet are available but not from stringzone- probably as its a new product

A1 shoulder rest, sturdy, great fit, grip & price
7 out of 8 found the following review helpful

Pros: Bought this shoulder rest for my son to replace a KUN which had been stolen at his school. It had good write-ups but was also half the price so I decided to give it a go. WHY everyone hasn't heard about these rests, I cannot imagine. Sturdy, much better padded than the KUN, feet are very well fitted to the violin and don't fall off and they dont have rubber covered feet that split as do the KUN rests (though the latest ones are improved). EXCELLENT PRODUCT, will never go back. This is the product we have all been waiting for, a good solid shoulder rest that stays in place, doesn't wobble, and cost half the price. A much better rest for a child too.

Cons: A little bulky to fit into a 1/2 size case with the violin but just about fits.

Other: I recommend this shoulder rest to my pupils

Insufficient support

Pros: Sturdy and the height was adjustable to some extent

Cons: All my previous rests have been straight. The curvataure of this one made it feel very insecure.

It's good but wears out exceptionally fast.

Pros: Inexpensive; not too heavy; good shape/support (but see cons); adequate height range.

Cons: I can't understand the claim for durability for this shoulder rest as it's worn out like no other I've used (namely Kun and Wolfe). Apparently it has a two and a half year guarantee, but this showed compromising signs of wear under two years of use. The foam padding's adhesive depleted and, most significantly, the screws wore away their plastic holes. So the legs become wobbly and you have to adjust your height lower to gain that stability back. Also, I wore out all the holes by alternating them to maximise the longevity. This was the most problematic aspect of wear as it compromises support. Perhaps I got a dud, and this isn't a criticism of The String Zone as they're a great shop, but this is my experience and it's the only one of these I've used. I will order another though because, three years later, it is finally unusable and thankfully it isn't expensive and it is good while it lasts.
