Shoulder Rests or Sponges

Shoulder rests are a popular and simple accessory to make holding the violin more comfortable. But there are many different degrees of intensity, and it is a highly personalized choice. They range from:

  • No shoulder rest (maybe still a rag or sponge under your shirt)
  • Sponge or foam pad held on with a rubber band.
  • Traditional shoulder rests
  • Super tall chinrests (Wolf, or BonMusica)
  • Chinrest PLUS Extra Tall Chinrests combinations.
