After years of using Guarneri cinrest(cheek rest actually!)
I switched to SAS (32mm)
I'm really comfortable with it but my luthier strongly adviced me to remove it and told me that it causes damage to the body of your instrument (having only one bracket that mounts on the left side from the center that puts too much pressure) is there any other kind of high chinrests?(more than 30 mm)
i visited 2 music shops around me but they don't offer chinrest test unfortunately.
How should i choose the correct chinrest for me?
My hand length from arm to the top of the middle finger : 78 cm
My Neck's height from the center of the jaw to breast bone: 14 cm
Jaw width ear to ear: 25cm
P.S:i checked the lately topic about chinrests higher than 30 mm but i don't want to add material to my chinrest in order to makes it higher.
