your violin chin rest the chin rest come loose quite often mean there is a lot of
pressure on our chins here as we hold the violin so these things do come loose
after a while see wanna make sure you have a nice it’s
not because really mean it’s going to damage the fiddle if it comes and and you know you all rounder anyway
so let me show you how you actually take these things up now you know spec here there are there
are two looks there are two om the kinda screw
things that that are on the there are on the chin rest in place now am you can see that there’s actually
holes in the these so these holes what we need to use to
tighten it now I have a specially designed nah chin rest tightener you might not have one of these but you can
use a lot of things work you can use a skewer like for chicken or you can use a a very heavy the paperclip the constraint noting use I’m there’s a
lot of things as long as it’s got a little bit a strength to it when you see
the tip it is about the size have a a heavy paperclip okay so what you do is you need to put the
tip up whatever it is he using into this whole

straight through the whole and I’ll come out the other side so

because as soon as you start twisting it the extra length of the skewer will hit the wood
annual gala and salute as you twist so you seats are turning the scratched
will be low so be very careful about that okay so what you do is you give it a
couple turns until you feel the tension here now here is another important thing if
