I'm taking a closer look into the technicalities shoulder rests, and chin rests. I am not trying to start another thread on with or without shoulder rests. We all (I think) can agree that a chin rest is pretty necesary. I am about 5'11" with a longer neck. I currently use a kun, that is maxed out heightwise, and a boxwood chinrest on the left. I am willing to give playing without a rest, a whirl, but something has to fill the space. I will have to order online. I need a boxwood chinrest to match everthing else. Why would anyone want a hump in a chinrest. Is with or without the hump better. Check out this site: http://www.sharmusic.com/search_NonSorted.asp?PageLen=20&PageNo=3&SKW=ACCALLCHINKEY&cat=
I'm thinking of giving the sixth item down a try. (Flesch Violin Chinrest-Rosewood-Ctr Mount-No Hump) Can I have some input.
