I recently bought a Cecilio violin and have been trying my best to learn a new skill, but I became discouraged when I found that no matter how I adjusted my chin rest and shoulder rest, I couldn't hold the violin properly. I tried it without the shoulder rest, without the chin rest and every combination I could. No luck. I packed it up and put it in the closet.
After a week of wanting to play, I broke down and ordered a Bon Musica shoulder rest and a 17 mm Huberman Style chin rest and now I'm in heaven. I think I could do handstands without the violin moving. I can't say enough good things about the Bon Musica. It's a great piece of equipment. Now to learn to play it!!!
In my opinion a good shoulder rest helped my violin progress in many ways. It immediately ended all aches and pains from playing for extended times.
My teacher had me order an Original Kun a few years back. I still use it. A member here on the forum gave me a wooden carved padded shoulder rest. I have it on my secondary violin and actually I have become comfortable with that also.
Vibrato Desperato.... Desperately seeking vibrato
I have heard great things about the Bon Musica. A few years ago my teacher got me to get a Kun as well, and it definitely improved my posture and helped hold the violin up. It was since then that I heard about the Bon Musica, kind of wish i had gotten that one instead but I am happy with my Kun and can't justify buying a new shoulder rest.
I am glad that you got yourself set up nicely Chromedome, looking forward to hearing more updates
