I'm anxiously awaiting to try one for myself but would love to hear thoughts from those of you who have used a Pirastro KorfkerCradle.
What's the difference for the KorfkerRest?
From what I see here they are quite different.
Ah, I see.. On the violin they look the same, if you don't pay close attention... The Cradle has a huge mounting.
There is also a huge price difference. It's really about the attach points, the rest itself is the same. I have a Korfkerrest so I won't comment further since I've never used the cradle.
I played with the KorfkerRest for awhile but then found a used Cradle and purchased it. It's pretty amazing and the level of comfort it provides was worth the price for me. Took me a long time to get the right fit and it was super frustrating at times, but I found the sweet spot finally. I also find the sound of my violin more resonant as well.
Wow. That is breathtakingly expensive for a shoulder rest. I have to wonder if it's worth it? I have a small collection of SRs and have been using the VLM Diamond lately which I find quite comfortable and I can adjust it fairly low and close to the collar bone.
