Hi, I've had my Cecilio CEVN for a year now and I love the sound. But it keeps slipping. I have a long neck. Maybe I need a new shoulder rest (using an Everest now). But I measured the Cecilio's thickness vs my acoustic, and the Cecilio is about 1/4-inch thinner.
I'm thinking I could have a higher chin rest and/or shoulder pad. I called my local violin shop and he told me over the phone that the brackets for a new chin rest won't fit the Cecilio.
Has anyone replaced the chin rest that comes with the Cecilio with a new one?
Yes. with a 35mm extra tall Guarnerri style. (Not sure if I spelled that right).
I started out with the Fiddlerman shoulder rest, but had to move to an Everest to get the height. I have limited mobility when it comes to tilting my head to the left from an injury.
The Cecelio is fun to play with, especially when I start messing with the effects on the amp (When no one is home). Otherwise, I do use it to practice silently (to others) with headphones on.
