We've just purchased a starter violin online for our children (1/2 size) & the wooden chin rest was broken on arrival...Mom & Dad do not play violin & have no idea what to do...how can this be fixed?, and how much can we anticipate paying if we take the violin to a shop to have the chin rest replaced? also...What kind of chin rest should/can I get to replace it? Thanks so much!!!
the chin rest is almost perfectly in two pieces...
the wood looks like it was decent, real wood...just thin and a little curved....so the case is not a hard case (and this soft case was packaged only in a cardboard box marked "Fragile") and it wouldn't have taken much pressure to break it....
any ideas what to do?? we know nothing about violins....
Keep us posted, miss A. as I stated above, the seller should replace it free of charge. I am assuming you purchased it online, I had a problem with one of the fine tuner's when I bought a violin online about 7 or 8 years ago so I emailed the seller and one was sent within a few day's.
Before you go somewhere and buy another, try the one they send to see if it work's or not.
