Viva La Musica shoulder rest
What is the difference between VLM Diamond and VLM Augustin Diamond shoulder rest?
The difference? About $7 - and the shape! And the shape and be critical.
The Invisi-rest is 100% cheaper...
Nothing. Augustin is not a model name, it's actually part of the full company name. Some sites refer to the company as VLM-Augustin and others Viva la Musica, same company. I have a Diamond and the box had both names on it. I've seen a couple of site pictures when I was looking for mine that showed the older Diamond with not as much curve as the current Diamond, but it's either a discontinued older style or an incorrect photo. If you order by either name, it will be the same rest. That is what my research bore out when I was shopping.
The invisirest may be cheaper, but I keep loosing mine, some how I can't seem to see where I put it down ;-) Shoulder rests are so personal, you ought to try them before you buy if you can.
I find the invisrest hurts my collarbone. Must be a design flaw.
@Roger. I can sell you a couple so you have a spare...
