Kun Voce vs Fiddlerman Carbon Fiber Violin Shoulder Rest Review | Violin Lounge TV #338
Review of two carbon fiber violin shoulder rests: the expensive Kun Voce vs the cheap Fiddlerman.
Find out which one sounds best and is most comfortable!
I LOVE the sound of the Kun Voce, but I was barely able to play it because it felt so uncomfortable
Of course this is highly personal and I’m sure there are people who LOVE how this rest feels.
As it’s quite an expensive rest, it looks high tech, but doesn’t really give me the high end look and feel I would expect.
Adjusting the rest in height and width works very well. For people with a long neck it’s good to know that you can make it quite high, but you can’t really make it very low.
Kun advertises that this shoulder rest is light weight, but with it’s 58 grams it’s just 1 gram lighter than the cheaper Fiddlerman carbon fiber rest and about the same weight as a wooden shoulder rest.
The Fiddlerman carbon fiber rest gives great value for money and it’s cool that you can choose between a traditional wood look and a carbon look
Considering the low price, this is a great rest with a good sound. The only downside is that you have limited possibilities adjusting the width of the rest (see video).
