Wood effect Wittner chin rest
I saw an image somewhere from a music instrument fair (which I can't find for the life of me) of a Wittner side mount chin rest with a wood-effect finish, that looked boxwood-coloured. Does anybody know where I might find this chin rest available commercially? I know that Wittner produces a rosewood-effect fine tuner tailpiece, which I think looks quite nice. I have boxwood fittings on my violin other than the Wittner chin rest. I'm only concerned about aesthetics at this stage.
I see a lot of concert violinists with mismatched chinrest/tailpiece materials. I use black Wittner chinrests on both of my violins, one of which has boxwood and the other rosewood pegs/tailpiece. Your fingerboard's black. Does that bother you? Don't worry about it.
What if they have a boxwood fingerboard? Cause damn, those look fine.
I'm not going to swap out the black Wittner I have on at the moment unless I can find one that matches! I know plenty of people that have black chin rests with boxwood fittings and I think it looks fine, but I'd prefer it to match if it's possible
Why not write and contact Wittner directly?
