Please use this thread to post pictures of chinrests that you don't plan on ever using but would like others to benefit from. Also give us a price or give it away as a donation.

I have a cheapie 4/4 shoulder rest that could use a good home, but it might cost more to ship this sucker than it's worth, and you can buy a nicer quality adjustable one from Amazon for <$10.

 

That being said, have a lightly used 4/4 shoulder rest (or two) from my "Import Cheap Things From China Adventure!" lying around not being used. I've pretty much settled on switching between a spongy-thing and a FOM shoulder rest, so it has been used probably less than a 10 hours. 😀

[No photo yet!]

It's up for grabs to anyone who'll pay shipping on it.

I think your right sipping costs would be a problem in this deal!

I would gladly pay travel expenses for a 4:4 shoulder pad (from the pose X-mas budget), Cuting a temporary one form bed foam has yet to turn out stable enough. And I'm a pretty thin guy with a long neck.

I have a 3/4 Kun shoulder rest. It was used for a month or so I think, before I switched to a 4/4 last year. It'll probably be available for grabs for a month or so (just pay shipping, or part of shipping if it's too much XD), after that I'll probably donate it somewhere here.

Does anyone know where I can get a "foot" for my Kun shoulder rest? I just replaced the rubber tubing but as I was doing the last foot I realized that it was broken. I think it was dropped or stepped on my my husband. Anyways, I've found some but they're like $9 a piece and that seems a bit much. That said, I've had this sucker for over 25 years so maybe it's time to invest some money in it. I'd chuck it but I'm sentimentally attached -- my dad engraved my name in it when I was just a youngster. :D

We can get them for you but 9 bucks is really not a bad price. Kun charges a bit for their spare parts. :-(

Thanks, fiddlerman, good to know. I ended up being very patient and using gorilla glue. It worked pretty good, probably not forever but good enough to practice and record for the Pachelbel Cannon project and that's all that matters for now! ;) And I've bought the replacements so I'll be good to go for another 25 or 30 years! :D

One more thing -- totally unrelated, sorry -- what about getting a pickup? My husband has nice recording tools for his singing and guitar but I hate standing next to a microphone because I'm always afraid I'm going to knock it over. Any opinions on what's best? I don't want anything permanent and my violin is pretty nice/old/precious. Thanks for your advice!
