Excellent product for all
14 out of 16 found the following review helpful

Pros: I always buy this brand and I highly recommend it to all my pupils. It is adjustable on many different levels - height (it also has extension supports if you want it even higher), width, angle and shape. As it is metal, it can be bent to fit the shoulder if desired, and it is slightly flexible anyway so is always comfortable to use. The foam gives support but is soft enough to cushion all the edges. It is easy to adjust between each size. It suits all needs, is very durable, and gives the best amount of support and flexibility. Replacement parts are easily obtainable - not that you'll need them anytime soon.

Cons: The only slight disadvantage I can think of is that it can be a little bit high for someone with a very short neck, but I find this to be very rare.

An excellent product
10 out of 12 found the following review helpful

Pros: It's the only shoulder rest I've tried that gives me the angle I like for playing. There's considerable height possible on the right-hand arm of the rest. The rubber-covered claws grip the violin firmly as well.

Cons: The only slight drawback to the design is that the actual rest can swivel on the arms and there's no real way of tightening it so that the same angle is maintained constantly.

A versatile shoulder rest
8 out of 10 found the following review helpful

Pros: Able to adjust width as well as height which you can't for the forte primo. Also able to bend it slightly to fit around the shoulder/collar bone.

Cons: The width arm can catch on the back of the violin and scratch it if you aren't careful. Occasionally the feet can slip, so double check you put it on properly.

Other: My daughter started off with a kun, but has now changed to the wolf now she is older.

Good value and does what it sets out to do.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Easy to use and simple to adjust. Many modern rests have integrated 'feet' which is good for most instruments but does not grip well enough for older instruments with a narrow lip. The Secondo with its chubby feet overcomes this and grips securely.

Cons: Not the most elegant. Otherwise, none

Great shoulder rest and well worth the money
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: I bought it for my daughter. I knew it was a good product as I use a Wolf shoulder rest myself. I first got her a 2.99 shoulder rest but it fell apart pretty much straight away so that was a waste of time! However, this product is well worth the money and I recommend it to anyone.

Cons: N/A

Well worth the money!
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Very adjustable- I needed a much higher shoulder rest and this is perfect for me & my long neck. It won't damage your violin either.

Cons: No cons that I can think of!
