There are 3 major brands of shoulder rest, Kun, Wolf and Bon Musica, each with their own particular advantages. The most important aspect of a shoulder rest is that your instrument sits comfortably, enables you to have the correct posture and your left hand is free for movement.
We provide a complimentary fitting service where we make appropriate adjustments to the shoulder rest to fit you and your instrument perfectly.
There are many styles of case, made from various materials for you to choose from. Particular attention should be made that your instrument fits well in the case you like. Considerations of weight, shape, construction and storage features will determine which case is best for the situations where you travel with your instrument.
Other accessories we provide include Rosin, Humidifiers, Mutes, Chin Rests, Tailpieces, String Adjusters and Peg Paste. Contact us with your requirements as there is a wide range to choose from. We are always happy to provide a complimentary fitting service for the items that require it.
