I have tried all sorts of shoulder rests as I have a very long neck. Then my teacher pointed out a higher and more adjustable chin rest would allow me the support I need without having to raise my arms THAT much higher to play. He recommeded the Kreddle chin rest, I Installed it myself, and am still toying with it, as it is adjustable in, like 12 dimensions. I still cannot give up the bonmusica that I like, but have it adjusted much lower now that I have the new chin rest in place. Hope that helps someone because I feel I am really working toward more comfort while playing.
