The shoulder rest is an accessory commonly used by violins and violas players. It attaches to the edge of the back of the violin and its goal is to provide more comfort while playing by adding height to the shoulder and preventing the instrument from slipping.
Shoulder rests enable you to perform an effortless vibrato and a good intonation, no matter if your playing in the first or in the eighth position or if your shifting somewhere in between.
Attaching a shoulder rest to a violin is a simple process. You should, however, remember to be careful with the instrument since violins and violas are fragile and may scratch easily.
The padded curved base can be easily manipulated to fit the exact contour of the player’s shoulder, holding the instrument in place while promoting hands-free stability for easy shifting and vibrato.
The foam padding is highly resistant to wear and is extremely comfortable. Unlike many other shoulder rests.
