Question for current Korfkerrest users
Do you carry it separately in the little bag when not in use? I mess up the configuration everytime I place it in my case.
Is there something I'm missing ? lol
I do the same with the height on my Wolf Secondo. I keep it out while I'm at home to avoid messing set up up
I had to barely rotate the feet (maybe 10 degrees?) to get it to fit in my old case. That's just rotating the foot itself, not the connection to the wood.
You'd think they'd include a hardshell case with a strap for $450.
I have a Musafia Master Series Oblong and there's plenty of space in there! But can't seem to get a good spot for it.
It should fit in the lower compartment, with the feet slightly rotated out of position to fit the door closing. It's easy to rotate the feed back each time.
One needs a koffer to carry one's korfker!
Fits fine in my Musafia Enigma with a slight rotation of the feet that does not mess up the config.
What Lydia said should work for your case as well. Good luck.
It fits nicely in my Musafia. I have the model with open space around the scroll an there is a velcro band to hold the rest under the neck of the violin. I see a pattern here; Korfker users have Musafia cases :)
Let's say we've tweaked the design of several of our models to make sure the Korfker will fit. Kinda got tired of answering all those emails "will my Korfker fit?"
Mine stays in the music pocket, inside the satin bag, in my Musafia too. Love that case and shoulder rest! Two brilliant products!
Oh, really? I used it twice, 5 min each, then abandoned it permanently, due largely to the poor build quality (the sponge started to show wear and one of the feet was defected if not broken after a total 10-min use!).
My Korfkerest is still in the box in which it was shipped to me; I don't know when I will gather the patience required to read the 33 page instruction book, master the tools/technique required, and adjust it.
The Korfker is popular amongst orchestra pros in the DC area. The foam things do indeed come off; the box includes extra ones. The screws on the feet sometimes collapse, but Pirastro has supposedly fixed that.
Lydia, Thank you!!!!!
I think you're looking at it from the wrong angle. The question is, will the rest fit in the case? The answer to that will usually be "yes", but you have to consider whether you can then fit the violin in without damaging an expensive rest. The answer to that may well be to get a separate case for the violin.
(1) Would we prefer the natural and intrinsic sound of our violins, or the enhanced and somewhat altered, even by the accessories, such as a shoulder rest?
I have two korfker rests and two Musafia cases. in my Enigma I put it at the end of the case compartment along with a digital hygrometer. The lid does not completely close, but it does not interfere with anything. I believe as my Enigma is a few years old, the new ones can accommodate the rest perfectly. In My Aeternum there is no problem.
