What shoulder rests do you know of that don't make contact (or very minimal contact) with the back or the sides of the violin, but still have the support and 'feel' of a shoulder rest.
I have seen a couple
-The Phantom Rest. This is too dangerous for the endpin, I won't consider it
-Wittner "Isny" - new shoulder rest. Has anyone used it? I have not seen a review of it yet. Seems well designed
If there are some other ones, I would love to know about them and see which could be the most practical. Since I am essentially stuck using a shoulder rest because of a long neck, I would like one that does not inhibit the violin's vibration.
