Adapter Spring Replacement Set
- - - - -
The spring system is designed to hold the angle of the shoulder rest. Despite careful use, the spring may damage depending on your playing style and/or play load. You will need a matching screwdriver (Torx TX4 or Phillips 00) and super glue to replace the springs. The Replacement Set includes 2 - 3 springs (depending on your model) and a new screw.
- Hex Screw / Torx TX4: Purchased between 2019-Q3 2022: Pioneer Edition, Carbon Edition, Signature Edition, Limited AIR Edition
- Phillips Screw / Phillips 00: Purchased in Q3 2022 or later: Carbon+ Edition, Limited AIR Edition
For detailed instructions on how to replace the spring, please follow the tutorial video below.
Important: We do not recommend continuing to play with the shoulder rest unless you can ensure that the 2 feet on the shoulder rest do not touch the back of your instrument. The spring holds the shoulder rest in place, but a damaged spring may not be strong enough for this. Only use the shoulder rest if you are sure the base cork is thick enough so that the shoulder rest will not touch your instrument, even if the shoulder rest "flips over" and the feet end up under the spring. You can also use a rubber band to hold the shoulder rest in place.
