So I have a Wolf Forte Secondo shoulder rest and it's set pretty high, how I like it and have had it for years. I think my rest is going on 9 years old by now. Recently, the rest started to fall off of my violin more frequently. This happens regardless of lyrical or technical playing, and with a variety of different shirts (I tried to find a pattern and even resorted in changing shirts to see if it was that) I replaced the rubber grips on the feet, and the problem is still here. Does anyone have info on this? I don't want to change brands, but I can't figure out why it keeps falling off.
I highly doubt it is a playing technique issue...I am getting my masters in violin performance and have been playing for about 18 years, nothing in my technique has changed recently and the problem is very new.
