Pirastro Korfkerrest Model 2. Where to buy?
I was wondering if anyone knew somewhere to buy it for less than 258 euros (292 dollars), which is the cheapest that i've found so far. I would need it to be sent to Spain.
If anyone wants to leave their opinion regarding other alternatives to the Korfkerrest, it is also welcome (i have long neck.
Thank you, and Merry Christmas!
You may be able to purchase one on EBay. Some sellers will allow potential buyers to make offers.
The price jump on the Korfker is pretty formidable, but your read on the current price is accurate. You'll have to watch for sales, which are rare.
Erin has provided a good summary and description of what's available out there besides the Korfker. You would really do yourself a favor if you could go to a decent luthier and try some rests. I have no idea where in Spain you live, but many of the cities should have good violin shops where you could go. Good luck!
I took the plunge and bought one this year. I had to spend an additional $50 for the short legs. It is very light and adjustable. I like it well enough. But my favorite SR is still the VLM Diamond.
