Hello. When I recently started playing again after a 15-20 year hiatus, I discovered that my Yehudi Menuhin shoulder rest was in need of repair. I noticed a link in the discussion of jaw pain to a site that sold "Menuhin" shoulder rests, but upon ordering the rest I found that it is NOT the original Menuhin shoulder rest, but is a Chinese-made knockoff which is not adjustable and is higher than the original. This newer version says "Anton Breton" and "made in China" on it.
The newer version does not work for me like the orginal Yehudi Menuhin rest does. Does anyone out there know where I can get a real Yehudi Menuhin shoulder rest? Are they (I'm afraid) not made anymore? If they are not made anymore, could someone recommend a shoulder rest which is closer to the original Menuhin rest in form and function than the Chinese version? Thanks for your help.
