I have been searching for shoulder rests for a long time now, I have tried many and there are only a couple that I haven't. I noticed that I sound much better without one, and I've grown to get used playing without one. Recently, I went back to using one just for fun and realized how much more comfortable I was. Thing is, the sound is muted when I play with it. I have never used a wooden shoulder rest before, would my sound be better because it is wood and the vibrations can still somewhat continue? I was thinking about purchasing the Viva La Musica Diamond Model.
