Chin rests are very personal, so I'm reviewing my experience. The material of this chin rest is quite comfortable: I like ebony. This Teka shape is probably high, compared with other shapes, and that’s why I find it good, because I have a medium-sized neck. With this shape I have been able to feel comfortable even without shoulder rest. I think this is quite important to say, because the role of the chin rest is to place correctly the violin even with no shoulder rest. I like this Teka shape because you can mount it where you want on the left side of the violin, since it is not very large.
So, making a summary
- Shape good for posture, especially if you have not a short neck
- It can be mounted where you want
In conclusion, I like this chin rest and I mounted it on my main violin. Maybe I would have preferred it a bit larger (like a Schmidt for example), but this really seems to work food for me.
