Dear Violinist, Violist,
I would like to introduce you to a very new product: the Mach
One Shoulder Rest. I developed it in October 97 and it is currently
in full production. It is available in plastic for 1/4
to 1/2 size violins and 3/4 to full size violins. It is also
carved out of maple for full size violins, and for small and
large violas. It features a simple but fully adjustable design
(for width and height) on both ends. The ergonomic shape almost
eliminates the need for padding. That makes the rest slim and
light. It is the lightest of all bridge type rests on the market.
The Mach One Shoulder Rest does not collapse. The attaching
feet never wear off and will not scratch your valuable instrument.
The attachment foot never touches the ribs of your violin or
viola. The "S" shape fits comfortably on your shoulder
and minimizes the size of the feet. Your dealer will carry extra
parts such as a foot with an extra long stem and a replacement
foam pad. The wooden rests are made by hand. Players like the
natural look of the wood, which matches the back of the instrument.
They also have noticed that the rest actually improves the sound
of their instrument. - Peter Mach, luthier
