Composite Chinrests 

A new generations of hypoallergenic chinrests from Wittner (German) eliminates need for purchasing few different models. It allows positioning in wider range - from far left to well over the tailpiece.  

For super comfort - try "Wolf Maestro"chinrest with leather covered, flexible pad that is moldable.  

Any standard type chinrest can be softened by attaching "Chin Comforter" - self-adhensive pad constructed of fabric covered layer of charcoal. Great for young and sesitive players! 

 

TIP: Hold the violin in playing position and observe yourself in a mirror. If a large portion your chinrest (25% or more) is not covered by your chin, it should be adjusted to fit you better.

If good fit is imposible to achieve, search for and try different models. 

Pegs, Tailpieces, Endpins

Many instruments can benefit from upgrading fittings in terms of sound quality as well as appearance. Better quality pegs that are properly fitted will provide more reliable tuning, prevent frequent "popping-out" and enhance look of an instrument. Lighter tailpiece with selected number of integrated fine tuners will improve sound projection. 

KCM carries variety of models and styles of all fittings: pegs, tailpieces, endpins are available as sets or can be installed separately. They can be plain, with ornamental inlays, dots, parisian eyes or fully carved in ebony, boxwood, rosewood or other excotic hardwoods (snakewood, pernambuco). Fittings in many styles (traditional, french, swiss, Hill, Mirecourt, Winterling, Pusch etc.) are available from well known makers - Wittner, Thomastik, B&C, JSB, Otto Tempel, Gotz, Le Bois d'Harmonie and others.
