Good quality reliable shoulder rest
7 out of 7 found the following review helpful

Pros: Apart from the fact that it looks attractive I have absolute confidence that it will not fall off my violin. Also with the feet being sprung, I have no worry about the shoulder rest damaging the violin.

Cons: I have no concerns about it.

Best shoulder rest ever!
6 out of 6 found the following review helpful

Pros: Having played for 32 years professionally and tried just about every shoulder rest available this is by far the most comfortable and attractive one I have purchased. There are so many adjustments possible to adapt to the individual physique that I would imagine everyone could benefit from its comfort.

Cons: I don't think there is anything I don't like. I can imagine people might find the cost too much but if I had bought this rest 32yrs ago I could have saved myself a lot of money as I have a drawer full of uncomfortable rests that in total cost way more than the asking price.

Viva Musice Diamond shoulder rest review
4 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: I have been using this rest for over two weeks now and at first I had difficulty finding the correct position for a comfortable fit, I am now happy to say I have found a good set-up and am happy with the purchase. My violin does sound a lot better by using it. I was also reassured to see that Joshua Bell also uses this same shoulder rest.

Cons: Takes time to find the right setting, despite one review here saying it comes with a case, it doesn't. I would have expected one especially as this is a premium price product.

A moderate rest
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Very beautiful to look at

Cons: I was not comfortable as it is too straight. I felt that it should be more curved to hug the neck. It is rigid and not flexible

Brilliant, finally what I've been looking for
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: -Can be moved to the position you want it for comfort -Snug fit to the violin - forever fed up of my shoulder rest falling off but this one is a tight fit and can be adjusted easily

Cons: No cons bar the fact that the legs (shown a white/silvery cover in the picture) were black when I received it - but this doesn't affect anything to do with the shoulder rest and is only a very very minor complaint

Other: the stringzone service is brilliant, i've never had to wait more than a day (or two) for my order- very efficient

Excellent shoulder rest highly recommended!

Pros: A beautiful shoulder rest that fits the violin very well and stays there. Very comfortable. Whilst it's not cheap I wish I had started with this one and not wasted my time with cheaper ones first that didn't fit me or the violin. I am comfortable playing for hours with the help of this rest - I highly recommend it.

Cons: None

Other: Qudos to string zone for excellent customer care and fast shipping.
