To look at, this shoulder rest doesn't scream comfort and yet, somehow, it is the most comfortable shoulder rest I think I've ever used. It just fits. It is practically invisible and what do you see is incredibly sleek.
The fit is perfect and it's extremely stable.
Nothing could have prepared me for the difference in sound. It seems that not only does it not choke the instrument like traditional shoulder rest, but it even helps the sound resonate and boosts the deep and rich sound of my instrument.
I am extremely impressed and, as I write this early in the morning, I cannot wait to play my violin and discover more about the instrument I thought I knew.
The only negative (?!) is that, due to its unconventional shape, it doesn't fit into my current violin case. Case shopping it is!
