Anyone out there using the Korfkercradle? I currently use the Korfkerrest but I am curious of the advantages of the cradle. Especially with that price, eek! 🤣
In my opinion it's an overbuilt and shockingly expensive neck brace designed for people who like to blame their tools for their bad technique.
Only someone who finds it useful will see why they need it..
I've never used either model, but I can see that the "cradle" would allow for a range of positions that the "rest" wouldn't. Specifically, the "cradle" could have one or both legs positioned further down along the arc of the ribs towards the end pin, to a point where the "rest" would lose its grip and fall off if similarly positioned. Personally, I can see some advantages to that because I use my Belvelin foam pad rest positioned down towards the end pin in that way. No rest that has legs like Kun, Wolf, Korfkerrest, etc. would stay on the instrument where I use my Belvelin. But I believe that the Korfkercradle would.
Mark, as someone who also uses my violin/viola supporting tools very close to my neck I think I get your point. The VLM diamond and VivaFlex can be brought very near the edge of the lower bout. Not totally, but your collarbone should be able to fit inbetween there anyhow.
