PostSubject: Suggestions for shoulder rest?   Thu Aug 19, 2010 2:24 pm



Hello,

Can anyone recommend a GOOD shoulder rest? the ones I buy in the music stores are not too stable. And if you have recommendations, can you also tell me where you bought yours?

I'm looking at some models over the internet, but I'd like to be able to try it on before buying it.

Thank you!

Thank you for your response, Justin!

I've heard a lot of recommendations for KUN. Where did you get yours? and for how much, please?

What about Bon Musica?

I've read good feedback on this, too. Quite expensive, though, at 50 dollars.

Link to Bon Musica, on the Amazon Site (disclaimer: I'm not connected with the seller in any way! just looking for feedback from Pinoy users) I'd like to know if it is available in the Philippines, too.

I bought it from Ebay. (Thanks to Gian)
Almost 3,000 + Shipping cost.


First time ko makakita ng brand na yan. Pero based on reviews. KUN is the leading SR.

Bon Musica is tooo pricey!!! And they dont fit inside most violin cases. Pero maganda naman siguro grip nito.

@julius
I'm going to buy something from JSI, maybe sa December. I need your help. I'll just contact you...

May connection yan sa post ko.

I'll try Mach One since it looks like the OVH OEM Shoulder rest. I want to buy the OEM sana kasi I tried it (Macky has OEM SR).

Dati I'm not a shoulder rest user. Pero malaki natulong sa akin ng SR dahil may back pains ako. Lalo na pag long hours of practicing or performance. Lalo na sa performance dahil tuloy tuloy ang mga songs na tinutugtog.

Anyway, i hope this helps. Kun is pricey din eh. Pero in fairness, ang ganda nya. But I'm more satisfied with OEM (affordable at perfect for my shoulders)
