Custom made chin rest for Violin and Viola

Don’t play through pain! Don’t accept an ill fitting setup on your instrument!

As a performing and recording concert violinist and teacher, I’ve experienced first hand how a poorly fitting violin can limit your potential, cause pain and long term disability.


  • A convenient way to easily try ALL of the most popular chin rest styles, within minutes.
  • A lifted chin rest, that can eliminate the need to prop your instrument up on a shoulder rest.
  • A new standard in healthy, playing comfort.
  • NEW: fractional size fittings for kids.

A historical first in the string world, this unique fitting process (patent pending by Frisch and Denig) is designed to enhance physical comfort and therefore, technique and sound. The Alpert Studio is currently a officially approved source for this service in Central Coast California.

A lifetime of comfortable and healthy playing

In most cases, a custom fitted chin rest will eliminate or minimize the need for a shoulder rest, and will create a healthier, more intimate and more comfortable playing experience. Fitting is currently available for full size and fractional size.  A one to two hour in-studio fitting session costs $90. You’ll receive the full specifications and instructions to order your chin rest, and a customized playing analysis.
