Comfortable, adaptable shoulder rest.

Pros: I like the ability to vary the height and position of the rest and the fact that it does not damage or scratch the instrument (which used to happen with older rests).

Cons: Cannot think of any cons.

Other: Impressed with the quick delivery time.

perfect for me

Pros: Soft, compliant and comfortable. Does not move about or fall off like the old one did. I wish I had found it sooner. Makes playing a pleasure as it doesn't dig into my chest.

Cons: None really - maybe the instructions could be clearer on how to assemble it.

Wolf Forte Secondo
2 out of 4 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!)
