Chinrest in German and Swedish? Looking for Flat Flesch 1/4
I wonder if some German or Swedish speaking violinist could help me with this one. What is chinrest in both of those laguages?
The thing is Im looking for Flat Flesch 1/4 chinrest for my girl and I havent found it anywhere except Ebay and just asked for posting costs and they said 55 euros plus the 17 euros for the chinrest. On top of that I would have to pay taxes. So quite too much sadly :(
How an eath can it be so much? Its quite a small package anyway and I have never come accross UPS taking so much for post and package.
So I thought of trying to find it from German or Sweden. I can cope with both languages but I have no idea what a chinrest is in German or Swedish and therefore cannot look for it online.
Chinrest in German is called Kinnhalter, maybe try a local luthier/shop for one?
In Swedish it's "hakstöd"
You might look for a Wittner center mount chinrest. They are essentially flat Flesch in design, and they are made to fit small violins. I use Wittner center mounts (Augsburg model) on all of three of my violins, so I can recommend them without reservation.
And Ive found it in geige-cello-bass.de. The pages seem reputable but dos anyone know the webshop?
I don’t think I have a Flesch, but apart from that I have most kinds og chin rest for smaller violins. Anything else that might work? Berber? Dresden?
Maria, if you've got problems with shipping to Finland, or not getting along with German webshops, sent me a PM and I'll be looking forward to help you.
Would this one suit your needs?
Nuuska, thank you so much :) but I managed to get through with my German and found the Flesch Flach (flat) :) It cost 28 euros with delivery cost, quite far from 70 euros...
