Well, now I started to put it on 1/8 violin to try and it says GEWA in the chinrest.
Now is Flesch flat a Gewa chinrest or did they mistakedly send me a wrong one?
It is very similar in shape but not quite and it is not higher than the 1/8 one, which is strange. Obviously I cannot complain to them because I did thepurchase in spring and didnt notice, but do I now have to start searching for the right chinrest again? Im pretty sure this one is not high enough for her when she is in 1/2 violin (the flesch one was supposed to be 1/2-1/4) and probably not high enough when she starts 1/4 (she plays restless with thin and soft sponge and I hope she will continue like that at least for a couple of years until her shoulders grow enough).
How difficult can it be in Europe to find a childrens flat chinrests? Does everybody play with standard chinrests here as a child? Well answering that is maybe yes, I have seen only one kid besides my daughter playing with anything else that the standard chinrest.Tweet
