Haven't been on the forum in over a year. I have been too busy with grad school but I finally got my master's degree so now I can start to play the violin again!

I just got my Stuber tall chinrest in the mail from you today and it is amazing. Wish I would have purchased this a long time ago when I got Fred's shoulder rest. Now, between the shoulder rest, the Stuber, and the Impressionist mold I have almost a perfect set up. Hopefully I can play for longer periods of time now. Breaking one's neck and then trying to learn the violin do not compliment each other. :(

Thanks again Pierre.

I have the Stuber tall chinrest. It was suggested by MFM > It has really helped with my playing.

I just bought the Stuber tall chinrest, too. I like it a lot! It feels very comfortable with my Slipper shoulder rest.

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

That is at least four of us. :-) I like the idea of combining the Stuber with "The Impressionist"
If I wasn't completely happy with my set-up I would try it. Just don't know if I want to change things right now. facepalm

Anyway. You are very welcome and it's nice to have you back here. thumbs-up

Glad to be back! Here I thought I was the only one to come up with that combination of products. :D I have to say it is awesome. What sucks is that I have to re-learn the angle of my bowing. The violin is not as angled down as I had it which relieves a lot of pressure on my neck, but now the angle of each string is different and I have to learn my arm positions again lol. Oh well, at least now I'll hopefully be able to practice for the same amount of time you guys get to.

Reverie: I broke my neck 10 years ago so I'm "normal" but I am in constant pain. I love the violin and don't want to stop but I have to fight the pain in each practice session. And yes, Metroid for life!
