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.

  • Boxwood
    Boxwood is an excellent choice for the player looking for a lighter chinrest. Boxwood also causes fewer allergic reactions than the other chinrest woods.
