Nobody could tell you, unless one had a chance to test it during an earthquake :) The wall screw size is ~№10-14, as I remember.
Easily. I have 5 up on my wall holding 3 full size, a 3/4 and a 1/2 size violin. I just squeezed the 2 points together about 1/2 an inch smaller. Absolutely secure. Regards
The unit is strong and can be mounted solidly to a wall or similar. The V-shaped neck is tapered so a full size violin sets right against the rear mount so I think it will hold a cello but check the difference in neck size to be sure. I hope this helps Natasha
The one in the picture next to what you wrote looks like the one I bought to hang a violin. If it's a vertical hanger, then it's the same. I can't say for certain so far as weight, but if they claim their hangers can hold a viola, my experience is it will. The one I have that looks like the picture has sheet rock anchors. It's as strong as you can get without using a wall stud. If you can put your hanger up so the mounting screws go into a stud on purpose, then you won't have any issues with your instruments weight. Good Luck!
Yes, it does. The holder suspends the violin far enough from the wall that it hangs straight down even with the shoulder rest in place.
Yes, I have three of these on my wall (drywall) to hold our violins and violas.
For me, this wall mount is hugely practical. It's much easier to jump quickly into a short practice without having to haul out the violin case. My teacher recommended it. Just mount it in a safe place. I suppose the only real concern might be exposing the violin to very dry conditions in the house. But that's fairly easy to monitor. L. Davis
There are 2 inches between the wall and the violin when using this wall mount hanger. You can do the math!!
I have cats that really like to mess with things and have a collection of guitars and other stringed instruments on my wall within their reach. The cats haven't messed with any of it.
…It is very well made and I found it very solid for its use (Violin Version, Wall Mount). When installed correctly in a wall's sheet rock, it will easily support the heaviest of Violins, and a Bow with ease! I have not installed it yet in a wood stud within a wall.…JUST REMEMBER if you are going to wall mount it on sheet rock only, to pre drill pilot holes for the sheet rock screw anchor, doing the extra step is assurance, it will be a clean proper install, and will look good!…
The hanger comes with two screws and pre-drilled holes, one at the top and one at the bottom and you can screw it into anything you'd like.
These wall hangers look awesome and hold my guitars securely. But, beware of the cheap hardware and wall anchors included with the purchase. …So if you are prepared with your own quality wall anchors and screws and these will serve you great.
