Wolf Super Flexible for Viola
I bought the shoulder-rest for my viola. Use it almost every day for practicing, as well as in the classroom and (amateur) orchestra. The Wolf Super Flexible was, for me, one of the few pillars that came into question, because it is largely symmetrical and thus also suitable for a left-handed instrument. It is relatively slim built and can be stored well in the accessory compartment of the bratschenkastens (perhaps not straight in the form case). Moreover, it is very light so that the weight of the viola is not significantly increased. The support can be attached well and sits with the rubber feet first also quite firmly to the body. As described, it can be rotated and adjusted in all directions. I'm happy with the support that makes it easy to adapt to my left-handed instrument (15 "), but unfortunately, I have not learned to play without support, but this seems to be a very good compromise I used to have a small slotted screwdriver to occasionally tighten the screws so that the post does not slip from the shoulder during the test, but this is not a big problem. The main criterion is that the Superflexible is only suitable for the viola. It is relatively delicate for the weight of the instrument and does not really support the posture, which led to neck pain in the long run. It will certainly not be easier for larger violas to keep them stable with this small support. In addition, large instruments may be too wide even for adjustment function. Even with my 15 "cabinet, the shoulder strap covers just two-thirds of the instrument base, which also means stability. Conclusion: If you are looking for a lightweight, movable and adjustable support for the violin, the Super-Flexible is certainly a good choice. For the viola, however, it is only conditionally suitable. For large instruments, it hardly seems to have the necessary stability. I now use the Bonmusica viola support. Is slightly more expensive than the super flexible, but much more stable and comfortable.
