Viva la Musica Original violin shoulder rest

This polycarbonate cushion is quite flexible and easily fits violins from 4/4 to 1/4 with its two models.

It adapts to many morphologies thanks to its ergonomic design especially studied for the comfort and the balance of play. It allows a relaxed playing and a total liberation of the left hand, making possible the greatest virtuosity.

In addition, its width lined with a high density foam and rather generous in thickness brings an appreciable comfort.

Its average weight, and its retractable attachments make this accessory take up a minimum of space when stored in the case.


The advantages of the shoulder rest

  • First, it fits many violin sizes
  • Like all Viva la Musica shoulder rests, it has a circular adjustment system that allows for unique positioning on your instrument.
  • Secondly, the legs are foldable, which allows a minimum of space when storing.


The opinion of the violin maker

Viva la Musica shoulder rests are a great alternative to the very popular KUN. They offer a great stability to the instrument when it is installed on the shoulder and is not too complicated to use.

In general, I also really like the retractable pads, which really allow them to fit optimally in many cases, even the narrowest ones.

Of course, all musicians’ morphologies are different and it is important to find the best compromise by choosing an adapted chinrest.
