WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

My investment in a DOLFINOS already paid off many times!

Gregory Maytan

1st Concertmaster, Anhaltische Philharmonie, Germany

DOLFINOS allows a much healthier posture, extends the flexibility of the body while letting the instrument breathe and sound at its best. It offers a physical freedom which reminds of playing without a shoulder rest, while keeping the control over the instrument at all times. I am convinced that this innovative system will establish itself.

Fedor Rudin

Concertmaster, Vienna Philharmonic, Austria

The DOLFINOS Violin Rest system is an innovative and ingenious solution for violinists. It offers the player the opportunity to personalize the shoulder and chinrest precisely to their body type. I feel it offers physical freedom and comfort while helping the sound of the instrument. I encourage violinists to give it a try."

Noah Bendix-Balgley

1st Concertmaster, Berlin Philharmonic, Germany

I play the DOLFINOS now for nearly 2 years and I warmly recommend it to my colleagues and students. 

Prof. Anton Sorokow

1st Concertmaster, Vienna Symphonic Orchestra, Austria

When I had my Carnegie Hall debut, the DOLFINOS Rest System really made a huge difference in sound, comfort and reliability.

Why I chose DOLFINOS: 1) No more pressure points on collarbone, 2) the instrument can vibrate completely freely, nothing disturbs the sound, which becomes bigger and freer

You can't expect more!

Lukas Hufnagl

Austria

The shoulder rest does not fall off again and again. The violin sits more stably than ever before, without constricting. The sensitive varnish on the side of my violin is not repeatedly scraped off by the shoulder rest. And the sound seems "freer" to me.

Andreas Garzotto

Switzerland

My motivation is a rest system which doesn’t kill sound. For years I played without a rest for that reason, but I have a very long neck and it eventually became untenable for my body. I tried several rests and eventually chose the DOLFINOS because the sound I get with it is far and away bigger and better than with any other system.

In 2020, at the age of 39, I was about to retire for health reasons. Then, the Bremen employment office approved the AIR Edition as an orthopedic aid on the basis of a medical certificate. Since I have it, I am back in full use! THANK YOU DOLFINOS.

FEEDBACKS FROM OUR AIR EDITION PLAYERS

I am so happy happy to have found the DOLFINOS Rest System! The fit is extremely comfortable and I am able to play the Amati my mom left to me. She passed a year ago, but her violin vibrating over my heart brings me close to her once more.

Asenath Cadavos

Music Instructor, Philippines

It's amazing, that it's just there for you. And once you're holding it, it just stays in place and you can move freely.

Maya Meron

Switzerland

Back in July of last year I received your pioneer edition of the AIR and marveled at the precision of its manufacture, its elegance of appearance, but mostly its lightness, minimal space to connect to the violin, and the extraordinary variety of adjustments to get the shoulder and chin rests just right.

J. M.

When you consider what a set of high-quality strings costs, new bow covers etc., i.e. the annual costs for all those wear parts that should and are regularly renewed for purely tonal reasons, the price for a DOLFINOS system is abruptly put into perspective. Because here you get a permanent tonal improvement as one feature among several.

Max Hilfenhaus

Germany

It is a great and important thing for Violin and Viola players. If they don't have a great shoulder rest, they will lose a lot of power! DOLFINOS can help you with this 😊 Thank you for giving me this great chance to share your great product with all the world!

Chia Wei Ma

Absolutely undampened sound! That’s the main reason I chose DOLFINOS. It makes my instrument play inherent sound and gives me a completely different overtone as well as projection. Besides, I can set the height of the chin rest based on the pieces which I play or daily condition. I highly appreciate and recommend it.
