Shoulder Rests

Shoulder Rests

Violins and violas can be slippery buggers, sliding all over your shoulder while you try to play. To avoid this, you have two options:

1. Scrunch up your neck and contort your shoulder to hold the instrument in a death grip
2. Use a shoulder rest

Most players prefer the second option. If you're one of them, we have a fine selection of shoulder rests from outstanding manufacturers like Artino, Bon Musica, Connolly, Everest, Kun, and Wolf, among others. They range from simple foam pads to elegant devices that are fully adjustable to perfectly fit your body.
