Exclusive chinrest models

Three types of chinrests are handmade exclusively for our workshop from Tempel, the well-known producer of accessories. They are made of a very high quality of wood with an enormous precision. The extrem light-weight titanium fittings are also qualified for skin-allergy sufferers. All around the edges the three types of chinrests are softly and pleasently rounded, so the player has no problems with any tender spot at the chin. Another advantage is the possibility to hold the violin both straight and sideways and to change the position during the play.
