Chinrests

Chinrests come in a large variety of sizes, shapes, and styles. A player’s personal preference often determines the type of chinrest you choose. If your chinrest is causing some discomfort, you may want to change to a different style or size. J.R. Judd Violins carries chinrests made from a variety of materials including: Boxwood, Ebony, Rosewood and Hypoallergenic plastic.

The StressLess Chinrest

Holding a violin for hours each day can be uncomfortable and ergonomically harmful. Common physical problems among string players include repetitive motion disorders, arthritis, neck or back pain, and scoliosis.

The Universal Chinrest is intended for players who need a taller chinrest in order to comfortably hold an instrument. It provides quick and secure vertical height and tilt adjustment to accommodate a wide variety of players.

This chinrest is designed and manufactured by J.S. Lamancusa, with patent pending.
