The Berber (also known as the Ohrenform) is a high center mounted chinrest favored for its leverage that assists many more petite players, with its prominent rounded edge and medium-deep cup. This extra high version is designed to assist the exceptionally long-necked player. Normal Berber height is 29 or 30 mm, but the height in the center of the edge of this chinrest is 40 mm.
Figaro fine fittings are made only from the best sourced materials and finished by hand by craftsmen in a family owned business. The Boxwood (Buxus sempervirens) is harvested in the foothills of the Himalayas. It is originally off-white and air aged to assure stability. After sectioning into quarter-sawn boards, it is carved and then stained a tasteful orange-brown. The cork (Quercus suber) is the finest quality, fitted precisely to minimize acoustic interference and to maximize stability. The chrome fittings are all individually fitted by hand and are straight and thread easily. There are no chinrests available that are superior!
