Figaro Importers Berber Violin Chinrest in Rosewood for 4/4 Violin
The Berber (or Ohrenform) is a high center mounted chinrest favored for its leverage that assists many longer-necked violinists. Cup height in the center of the edge that meets the chin is 30 mm, and the arch underneath the chinrest has been engineered to clear peaked tailpieces.
Figaro fine fittings are made only from the best sourced materials and finished by hand by craftsmen in a family owned business. The quarter sawn rosewood(Dalbergia Latifolia), is harvested in north east India. It is aged in the log for a minimum of two years. Only large logs with the straightest grain are selected for our fittings. Figaro Importers fittings are carved precisely to maximize acoustic performance, strength, and durability. 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!
