I am hunting for the 40mm Teka high chin rest but they are nowhere to be found. Chinrests.com offers a tailored one but are so expensive. Not so long ago, I found a website called thestringzone.co.uk only to hear from them that the 40mm(£26)is out of stock. I waited a month and they are still unsure of the status. I now use a 30mm high Teka but feel that a 35-40mm will fit me perfectly. I hate the SAS chin rests and the shape of the 30mm Teka goes hand in hand with my chin. It is just the height of the chin rest which bothers me. Unfortunately, I will also have to give up the idea of playing without a shoulder rest since my neck is so high that I will need both the chin rest as well as the shoulder rest indispensably.
