Well worth the money!

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!

Great product for use at all levels
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Very stable, flexible, easy to adjust for all types of set up, comfortable

Cons: Wolf Shoulder Rests have a tendency to scratch the back of violins with the adjustable bar. This put me off from buying one for a long time, but after borrowing my colleagues Wolf, hers was much more stable so didn't ever cause damage. Mine on the other hand is a bit loose, so I have to be careful.

Elegant and well designed
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: comfortabe, secure

Cons: nothing to criticize

Other: I had been using a very common shoulder rest prior to this, a simple pad with a velvety covering - fine as far as it went - and then I tried a friend's Wolfe Forte Secondo and was immediately impressed by how much more secure it felt. The pad is very grippy and the curved shape seems to sit more naturally against the body. Each side of the rest can be adjusted independently to achieve the best angle. The rubber feet are quite soft and chunky and attach securely to the violin. I'm very impressed with this rest, definitely an improvement for me.

Wolf shoulder rest...the best you can buy!
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: This is the best rest you can buy. They last 2 or 3 sizes of violin, have fully adjustable feet height and angle to your shoulder. Many other makes pupils have tried, don't adjust and fall apart. It's worth paying the price of these.

Cons: None

Other: I have been teaching for 25+ years and found these the best rest.
