Hi everyone! I am a beginner with only few months of experience under my belt. The violin feels very uncomfortable due to my long neck. No chinrest on the market (not even the 35mm SAS) allows me to play comfortably without having to press hard with my chin/jaw in order to prevent the violin from falling. I bought some corks (5mm thick) but they dampen the sound too much and the chinrest clamp cannot go high enough to fit all the corks to get the height I needed. So I plan to do some modding myself.
What kind of wood goes with a standard ebony chinrest (Berber)? And what kind of glue should I use? Where can I get everything?
