My name is Emma and I am a doctoral student in Violin Performance. I am planning on writing my dissertation on choosing the optimal type of chin rest and shoulder rest to suit the individual player's body. Does anybody know a good source for the history of chin rests and shoulder rests? I am interested in details like when the centered chin rest, or the fractional-size shoulder rests, became available on the market. I looked in many books and searched many websites, but could not find the answer.
Thank you so much,
