Excellent product for all
11 out of 12 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
9 out of 10 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
7 out of 8 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.

Wolf Forte Secondo
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Upgrade from Wolf Forte Primo on teacher's recommendation: its curved shape helps against slouching. Indeed the Secondo is much more comfortable.

Cons: Nothing I can think of.

Other: Well made, fast delivery and excellent compact packaging (it actually fit through the letterbox!)

Top quality, lifetime shoulder rest.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: This was purchased for an adult pupil who wanted me to order it for him. I've had the same wolf shoulder rest for the last 30 years - it's still going strong. Just renew the rubber feet every couple of years.

Cons: There's absolutely nothing not to like. They're very adjustable, and it'll probably outlive me!

Good rest, unless you have a screw loose...!
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Bought this to replace an old, worn out, but otherwise identical rest that I'd used for many years... Can't believe I waited so long! So much more padding- I'm back to using it on it's minimum setting. V pleased.

Cons: One of the screws was loose & rattling. When I tightened it, the screw head came off! Seems to be holding together fine tho. Hopefully this will last as long as the old one did!
