Does not convince
wirbelschnecke, 23.09.2012
I have been playing with my violin for decades and I wanted to buy the same for my viola. The disappointment was great: in fact, the viola support has only one fixed foot part, the other foot part is length-adjustable. In any case, it is theoretically length-adjustable ... Practically I could not use the support but at all and send it back for the following reasons:
- The foot parts do not hold to the body, since their mounting angle (not the same as the one shown) is not perpendicular to each other, but is approximately at right angles, which means that they move away from each other at (even light) shoulder pressure The prop continually flops from the instrument.
- The rubber on the feet is not particularly non-slip (worse than in my old-fashioned violin support).
- For very small violas (like mine), the extension part must be pushed together completely and then protrude at such a considerable angle from the support that it would pierce straight into the bottom of the instrument with its end. It would have to be cut off. But even then I would not be sure if it would not still be too far and will not try it.
- Big violas will not have this problem. For this, however, the torsional rigidity is when a foot part floats on the long, thin extension rod, which in turn is arrested only by a small screw.
- And woe, the little bolt falls out once ... I'm 10 minutes on the ground crawled until I had it again :-(
