The best shoulder rest money can buy?
Christopher2751, 30.01.2015
I've struggled for a number of years to get a suitable shoulder rest for my big 17" Viola. Firstly, getting a shoulder rest to fit was a struggle in itself, but the main problem was that the shoulder rests I was using weren't offering any support at all and weren't very far away from just not using a shoulder rest at all!
The Bonmusica 17" Should Rest is a revelation. It is fully adjustable in every way, so you get get it to sit comfortably on the most awkward shaped violins (and shoulders). The shoulder support itself is made of a firm but malleable metal which allows the player to subtly mould the rest to the shape of their shoulder. Genius!
You're able to obtain a snug fit which makes the Viola feel comfortable and secure. This is first shoulder rest that has passed the "just using your chin with no hands" test.
A must buy for any string player, but particularly if you have a larger than average Viola. Also a very good price.
Thoroughly recommended!

Sehr stabile und flexible Schulterstütze
JaschaHeifetz, 05.02.2013
Für mich nach wie vor (nach vielen Jahren Berufsalltag) die beste Stütze, aus folgenden Gründen:

- sehr flexibel einstellbar, nach ergonomischen Gesichtspunkten
- trotzdem stabil
- in versch. Größen verfügbar (besonders wichtig beim Bratschenmodell)
- Hersteller zeigte sich kulant und hat auf Nachfrage kostenlos Verschleißteile zugesendet

Barre perfectionnée
14.01.2016
Je joue habituellement sans barre, mais en orchestre, la fatigue commençait à se faire sentir, et il m'était difficile de jouer avec des cravates ou n½uds papillon. Elle me permet de remplir mes missions sans me fatiguer dans ces contextes.

Cette barre comporte de nombreux réglages et bénéficie d'une qualité de fabrication très élevée. Elle tient très bien sur l'alto, l'inclinaison est ferme grâce à des vis de serrage, et elle semble prendre rapidement la forme de votre profil.

Maintenant, ayant un long cou et les épaules basses, cette barre ne me permet pas d'avoir précisément la même posture que lorsque je joue sans, et l'alto se trouve un peu bas. Peut-être en peaufinant les réglages arriverai-je à trouver le bon équilibre.

Pour tous ceux qui jouent avec une barre en permanence, je recommande ce produit.

Jättebra
01.12.2016
Jag har under åren provat många olika axelstöd till min viola, allt från kuddar, svampar och andra axelstöd. Till slut köpte jag denna trots att jag var skeptiskt. Men den är fantastisk. Det är det enda axelstödet som verkligen är ett stöd. Jag har en stor viola och det är kanske därför det har varit svårt att hitta ett bra stöd.
Man kan själv forma till stödet efter formen på ens axel och bestämma böjningen. Det är lite trixigt innan man hittat sin form, men när man väl gjort det ger det fantastisk avlastning.

Stödet sitter även bra på violan och ramlar inte av i tid och otid som så många andra gör. Däremot, när det väl ramlar av har i alla fall mitt haft en tendens att ramla av på så sätt att det på nåt sätt kommer åt baksidan på violan. Jag har fått lite märken i lacken av det.
