Pirastro Korfker Shoulder Rest
The new shoulder rest from Pirastro reduces the dampening effect experienced by many heavier shoulder rests and allows the violin to resonate more freely.
Weighing in at approx. 30 g, the very elegant Korfker shoulder rest is causing quite a stir in the playing community.
The shoulder rest is made of bendable tone wood which allows you to make very precise and minute adjustments to its position, tilt and height to suit your personal shape.
It holds the violin securely without slipping off, reduces the dampening effect experienced by many heavier, more traditional shoulder rests and allows the violin to resonate more freely. If you are a serious violinist who plays at least 3-5 hours every day, you could well find that the comfort and weight advantages far compensate for the cost.
