My daughter, who is eleven and has been playing for three years, is very pleased with this shoulder rest. I bought the size 1/2-3/4, and it fits her 3/4 violin perfectly. She says the shoulder rest lets her hold the violin securely with just her chin. Detached, it also fits inside the violin case with the violin, spooning up against it. Tip: if you have a 3/4 violin, do not order what's listed here as the 3/4-4/4 size, which is actually stamped "4/4" on the plastic (as I found out when it arrived) and does not fit a 3/4 violin. Instead, order the 1/2-3/4 size, which is indeed stamped "1/2-3/4," and you will be fine. Customer service sent me out the right size right away -- thank you for excellent service!

Best value for the price range.

It fits well and does the job. I would suggest going with this rather than the Resonans, or other similar designs in the price range, because it is made with better materials.Read complete review

It fits well and does the job. I would suggest going with this rather than the Resonans, or other similar designs in the price range, because it is made with better materials.
I've been playing violin for about eight years, and I have used three different shoulder rests, including this one. This one is by far the best for two reasons: it's feet are snug and don't damage the violin, and the feet's attachment by screw rod means it's height is adjustable to a certain degree. I've used the Resonans, and another even more pricier one I cannot recall--both that used metal feet protected only by latex, that can possibly scratch the violin and doesn't allow as tight a fit as this rest's more elastic plastic feet. This one fits easily onto my violin and doesn't fall off. The construction is simple and solid also. And as for durability: by the look, sturdy feel, and simplicity of it's design, I'd bet that nothing is going to catch and peel off or come apart for a lifetime.
The simple design and materials are just right, better fitting and not as damaging to the violin as the metal most other shoulder rests use.
Outdoes other rests in its price range for the ability to adjust its height, plus its materials (mostly plastic) are cheaper and fit better.

Comments about Violin Shoulder Rest:

With the shoulder rest my daughter had before this one, she had a hard time holding the violin under the chin without some support from the left hand. This shoulder rest solved the problem in a day or so -- if not right away. I'm very pleased with the purchase.

            This shoulder rest was exactly what I was looking for as a replacement to a different shoulder rest that was not very good quality. So far I find this one to be sturdy, comfortable, and exactly the right size for her viola. I would buy it again!

                  Bought this for my wife. She is a fiddle student with a 4/4 size fiddle. Seems to do the job adequately. She says the comfort is acceptable.
