She Likes It!

By lflier

Comments about Wolf Forte Secondo Violin Shoulder Rest:

I got one of these for my daughter a year ago after listening to many complaints about her Kun (falls off, not comfortable...). I've heard no complaints about this one. If she had any, she'd surely have let me know(she's not shy about expressing herself). This shoulder rest is very adjustable - you can bend it to any shape you need. The full size model will just (just!) fit a 1/2 violin. But it might be a little tall. Haven't tried it on my eight-year old, yet.

      like it better than FOM. Lighter, and seems to be more adjustable to my body.

          My daughter is 9 and she said she loves it and can play longer without getting tired. I'm a novice and was able to put it on the violin with ease. I would recommend this rest.

          Great, but watch for aging rubber mounts and pads

          By Robert Borcherding

          from Michigan, USA

          Comments about Wolf Forte Secondo Violin Shoulder Rest:

          I have used one of these for 15 to 20 years, and been quite pleased with the flexibility of adjustment and comfort, but the one thing to watch for is as the rubber gets older, the pads eventually loose their sponginess and can start buzzing.
          Adjustable to the extreme, easy to setup.

          Comments about Wolf Forte Secondo Violin Shoulder Rest:

          My daughter is happy with this shoulder rest and adjusted it herself as soon as it arrived. It was nice to have the adjustable legs as she is tall and it helps her to keep her neck more upright. She says it is comfortable. I'm glad I bought it.

              I've tried several other rests that were not adjustable and, this one fills the need. Very nice rubber pad that can be formed if needed.

                  Comments about Wolf Forte Secondo Violin Shoulder Rest:

                  I had taken just 4 lessons before ordering this shoulder rest. It came quickly and was a good price/value. I had to have my instructor put it on for me, as there were no pictures showing how to attach it, as in should the curve be towards the base of the violin or away from it. It fits well and is more restful to play the violin now.

                    Comments about Wolf Forte Secondo Violin Shoulder Rest:

                    I bought this because I saw a video online where this shoulder rest was adjusted to a person's body with no gaps or pressure points. In addition to being able to adjust the length, angle of the feet and height of the feet which go higher than others I've tried, the main bar bends and twists. It can be made to hook over your shoulder and contour to your chest. It takes a little strength to bend, especially near the ends, but stays in the position you put it. Seems very well made. Good padding too.

                    It took me and a friend about 45 minutes of experimenting with various degrees of curve and angle and length of feet but that is because there are so many posibilities. It's worth the effort, feels so much better than other shoulder rests I've tried.

                        This has sufficient adjustability in width (continuous rather than discrete settings), height, and orientation, and also enough padding that it seems easier than with other shoulder rests I've tried, to find a configuration that keeps you comfortable when you're playing for long periods of time.
