And finally here Lizzie Ball describes the best way to place your shoulder rest on your instrument; written instructions follow.
The safest way to install your Kun shoulder rest on your violin or viola is by carefully sliding it onto the lower bout of your instrument until you reach the desired position.
Some musicians prefer to position the shoulder rest quite high on the instrument’s lower bout, away from its waist. Those players might benefit from our patented offset forks, which grip further down the bout while allowing the shoulder rest to sit closer to the chin rest.
Kun offset forks come with our Voce model, but they are also available as a spare part. Contact your local Kun supplier to order a set. If you’re having trouble finding them, let us know. Please note that these forks are only available for full-sized instruments.
