Reasons to love the attachment

  • It supports a freely moving and consciously formed vibrato
  • It relaxes the fingers while practicing 
  • It helps with the independence of right and left
  • It helps to increase fluency
  • It helps to be able to trill faster and more evenly
  • It is attractive for all performance levels
  • Helps teachers to implement their plans with the pupils

Special features

A special feature of the fingerboard attachment is that - unlike other grip aids - it does not restrict or limit movements. On the contrary: the fingerboard attachment brings movements more into the flow. This is not only due to the design, but also to the material, which overall makes mass production impossible: each fingerboard attachment is cast, spread and reworked by hand. Other special features: The ResoundingFingerboard not only supports one thing, but has very effects on many aspects of practising. This is especially due to the fact that the finger attachment and the finger drop change and feel much lighter overall. This then allows for changes in e.g. fluency, trills, double-stop technique. It is also described that using the fingerboard attachment relaxes the arms. Users notice this because they feel that their shoulders are no longer pulled up so high. In combination with the changes that result from the relaxation of the fingerboard attachment, among other things, all types of vibrato benefit from this. Another advantage of the fingerboard attachment is that it can be used across methods and allows you to experiment with it yourself at any time.
