So after many months I have grown sick of no shoulder rest.
I recently jammed with some friends [I am still shocked others like the violin in my area.] They had the fancy proper violins, you know, the wooden ones. With shoulder rests, they were much easier to handle.
From what I understand when you have to support the neck of the violin whilst playing your finger movements are hampered. Having a shoulder rest will allow me to grip with my face and shoulder, if grip is the right word.
So can someone please tell me what types/brands fit Cecilio CEVN type 1 violins? Full size violin.
Or will all types fit? If so what kind is good and what brands to avoid.
In case you are wondering, style one is the normalish version with holes, but still retaining the normal shape.
Then after all your perfect answers. I will remember I live over 250km from a store with shoulder rests.....
At the very least when I grow desperate and order on line, Your advice will stop me wasting all my money.
This is the one I use for the same violin. It's the cheapest but it works for me in that it covers the holes without lifting the violin up too high.
I use the Slipper. http://fiddlershop.com/the-sli.....me=slipper
It is beautiful as well as functional!
Fifi,,,, thank you so much for your comments regarding The Slipper. I am soooooo glad that you like it,,, I didn't know you ordered one (because I don't know your real name, lol).
It warms my heart (not being a chick, I mean it) when I hear things like that about our rest. thanks
Quirk, you might try a few of the cheaper rests, I tried a ton of them!
I have to mention that the shoulder rest I use on mine doesn't come around you and support the violin like the slipper or some of the other ones. I mainly use that type because I have a defibrillator implanted in my left shoulder and it is very uncomfortable having a shoulder rest pushing on it. I only wish I could use a slipper, it would make playing so much better, keeping the angle of the violin consistent.
