When ur daughter needed a new should rest, I did not hesitate to go on Thomann's website and buy one. In the haste, I bought the wrong thing.. a chin rest :-). No problem, quick email to Thomann and the shoulder rest was delivered, even before we returned the chin rest..this is exceptional customer service.
Now to the shoulder rest..excellent, fits without problem on the violin and provides the required stability. My daughter has played many hours and still enjoys using it. It is also very sturdy. In fact there is nothing to complain about it...all stars.
