Best shoulder rest (for me) so far!
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: I reckon this one is probably the best shoulder rest I am going to find for my requirements i.e. it suits me in all respects - recognising that, like chin-rests, they are a very personal matter. It is ergonomically functional, aesthetically pleasing and lightweight - just about perfect.

Cons: Nothing whatsoever to dislike.

Other: The String Zone service is second to none. Always helpful and informative with any queries. Orders are well packaged and swiftly dispatched - excellent in all respects.

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

Beautifully made and actually improved sound.

Pros: First time with a shoulder rest after 30 odd years without one. Really good looking rest and once adjusted was very comfortable. It can be set very low without worries about contact with the instrument which enables use with a Flesch style chin rest. The feet can get twisted round, adjusting the setting, if stored in a case. The most noticeable thing was the improvement in sound on the instrument - something I was not expecting and the main reason I'd opted not to use one in the past - 30 wasted years!!!!

Cons: Only negative is the lack of fore - aft adjustment. Would have been 5 stars otherwise.

The best on the market for free mvt

Pros: I already had the cheap plastic version of this rest & thought I would treat myself to a diamond version. This is basically the only type of rest which I have found to work with both side & centre chin rests. Beautifully made & so comfortable that I forget I'm using it! The plastic version is also very well made & more comfortable for children than any other I have found.

Cons: Weirdly, the plastic version still sounds nicer when used with a carbon fibre bow. But paired with a wooden bow the sound improvements are amazing

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.
