We offer a large selection of Chinrests. Our chinrests are made in India, using high quality wood and hardware. Many companies make each of the models, so you can not directly compare price and quality just by the model name. Yes, there are lower cost chinrest on the market, but they are not the same quality as we offer. For Chinrest accessories such as Strad Pad, Please visit our Miscellaneous Accessories pages. Consider ordering a few models to try, and then contact us to return. Also, consider different shoulder rests. A change in your chinrest, may necessitate an adjustment to the shoulder rest, or a different shoulder rest product. Our most recommended and popular models are the Wittner Ultra, Guarneri, and Flesch Flat models.

Guarneri. Probably the world's most popular chinrest style. Mounts centrally, with a large cup off to the side. Most players set their jaw over the tailpiece portion, using the ridge as an anchor for secure support.
