How to choose a chin rest
There are many different kinds of chin rests. Most fit into two categories: 1) chin rests that extend over the tailpiece and mount under the button; and 2) chinrests that mount on the side and do not extend over the tailpiece.
Your right arm must be able to easily pull a straight bow all the way to the tip. The right arm should not be fully extended at the tip and the bow grip should not change between the frog and the tip.
Players with long arms can afford to hold the violin further to the left. Chin rests with plates to the left of the tail piece work well for this position.
Violinists with shorter arms have to hold the violin more in front of their bodies. They need to hold the violin higher on the shoulder to make the bow angle easier for the right arm. In this case, chin rests that are centred over the tail piece are more advantageous.
It is also important to recognize that the fit of the chin rest and the shoulder rest must be evaluated together, since the design of the shoulder rest influences the characteristics required in a matching chin rest that fits securely and vice versa.
