Comfortable, sturdy, built to last

Pros: I find this shoulder rest very comfortable. I've been using this model since I was a kid; this is only the third of these that I've had in 30 years and I play quite a lot. I say it's very sturdy and built to last.

Cons: Nothing.

Other: Brilliant service from The String Zone as usual, delivered quickly and for a good price.

I fully recommend this rest to all standards.

Pros: I've always liked the straight Wolf rests. This was fine for 3/4 (ten year old student) after we worked out that one side of one end has a little tab that prevents it from tipping over. It folds completely flat which is very useful.

Cons: Probably grips better on a full sized violin.

Excellent, highly adjustable rest.

Pros: Finally I've found the shoulder rest that suits me, and my very narrow shoulders and long neck. I started off with the Kun and never found it comfortable, despite trying it with the extra long feet. Also tried the Wolf Secondo, but could never get it quite right, it seemed just a bit too wide for my shoulders. The primo has the perfect combination for me - the straight style of the Kun but with a high degree of flexibility - i've been able to bend this quite significantly to make the perfect 'hook' for my shoulder, and the feet can be adjusted to the perfect height. Really pleased with this rest.

Cons: No cons for me.

Other: A big thumbs up to the String Zone for consistently good service.

A comfortable, adjustable, well made rest.

Pros: A comfortable, well made rest. Well padded around the clamps so it doesn't damage your violin. Easy to adjust and very secure once on the violin.

Cons: None that I've noticed so far

Quality comfy rest
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: This a comfortable rest with plenty of hight adjustment. the way it also swivels to align with your body is good.

Cons: None

Other: A lot better than my previous rest which was not making much contact with my shoulder. I tried my teachers Wolf forte primo, that is why I purchase this model. Always best to try before you buy, which was my mistake with my previous rest.
