Have you heard of Xeros Shoulder Cushions? I intend to try them one day. They are foan shoulder rests that don't require a rubber band. They're quite hard, and don't absorb water (or sweat for that matter). They use a suction technology to stay in, and they won't leave any "residue" on the instrument.

Well, I would try it, but as of right now, it might not be the match for me. It is not tall enough. I could try a higher chin-rest, but they're expensive. BTW, what chinrest model is left-mount, but covers the center as well? There are times where my chin ends up resting on top of the tailpiece for some reason, and I was thinking that type of chin-rest would probably work.

As far as I know there isn't anything that is made specifically like that. However, a left handed Guarneri Violin chinrest would do that. The cup would just be off to the right and wouldn't really be what you are looking for.
At this point I imagine a center mounted chinrest is about as close as you are going to come.

Summer is around the corner.

I realize that this is major advertising and we should really be giving these shirts to you guys but what the heck, these are nice quality and we are basically selling them at cost with shipping. 🙂

LOL,
Maybe not as weird before you mentioned it. Too late now. ROFL
Hope you enjoy the shirt. They are very soft and comfortable.
Thanks

Thanks damfino.

Fran, is this still the case? It took a bit of time to work out the kinks but it should really be working well now.

@Fiddlerman The link above the chat room just goes to an old link, still goes to the new website, but to a page that isn't there.

Current link: https://fiddlershop.com/index.php?_route_=instruments/violin-886012577/fiddlerman-violins 

Guessing you'd want it to be: https://fiddlershop.com/fiddlerman-en if not just a link to the website homepage.

Since writing, I have noticed that the TEKA could work, also Wittner Hypoallergenic might as well, since its left-mount actually extends over the endpin. The Berber and the Kredle are good prospects as well. Trying all of those is the expensive part, though.
