Teka Violin Chinrest in Boxwood by Figaro Importers
The Teka is a high side mounted chinrest favored for its leverage that assists many longer-necked violinists. It has a swooped surface that angles down to the left. Cup height is 29.5 mm at the highest point and 21 mm at the lowest point.
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!
