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.
Glad to be back! Here I thought I was the only one to come up with that combination of products. 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!
