To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Overall the product is good . My main disappointment is the fact that the adjustment on the shoulder side does not allow a much lower setting , ideally I would like this to be a zero adjustment so that the violin could rest virtually on the shoulder and not be raised up at this point at all - with any height adjustment as an added option of course .. (I have a short - average neck). This would require you to redesign the way the support on the shoulder side operates - how about a locking ball and socket arrangement - this would be a much much more flexible and variable arrangement .
Shoulder rest is easy to assemble and seamless to slide on and off the violin - my daughter (age 11) loves it! Previously she has refused to put shoulder rest on as model was clunky and uncomfortable, but this is a game changer - highly recommended!
I am so glad I finally replaced my old shoulder rest with this one. It was recommended to me by a friend, who let me try her rest, and I knew I could never go back. It may seem expensive, but having a stable shoulder rest is essential to getting proper posture. My old, wobbly rest had me gripping the neck of my violin in fear that it would give way, but now I am free to relax and focus on the music.
