If you could take all the energy you use to hold your violin and apply it to your playing, would you play differently?
Optimal chin rest position is crucial for player comfort and the NS Adjustable Chin Rest addresses this issue head-on, by allowing the player to customize the chin rest to fit vastly different body shapes and playing styles.
The clamping screws in the centre of each hub can be adjusted to provide the desired amount of friction to ensure that the chin rest does not move in use. Using the hand to overcome the friction allows the player to instantly adjust the chin rest angle as desired.
The adjustment screws are loosened slightly to position and rotate the chin rest to the desired position. The hub and rod can be rotated for all the positions shown below… Tightening the screws maintains correct position (using a 9/64" hex wrench).

|Far from bridge (hub turned out) ||Close to bridge (hub turned in) |

|Centre position (rotate hubs & rod as shown) ||Side position (rotate hubs & rods as shown) |
The height of the chin rest can be lowered by reversing the inner hub so it is on the bottom side of the attachment plate. Thicker washers can be used to raise the chin rest.
The NS Fully Adjustable Chin Rest is designed for use with all NS Design Violin & Viola models as well as acoustic instruments.
