Belvelin Shoulder Rest Video Review
The Swedish-made Belvelin shoulder pad is perhaps the most comfortable shoulder pad you will ever use! It is formed to facilitate a healthy posture and give full freedom in the movements when playing the violin. The secret is in the unique cellular foam, offering the firmest support, yet possessing a soft , velvety finish. Unlike other foam shoulder pads, it will not "bottom out", yet it cushions away all the sharp edges of your violin or viola. Simple to use - just position it where it is most comfortable, and secure with a standard rubber band.
The Belvelin Collarbone Rests come in three sizes: small, medium and large. All three sizes can be used for all violin sizes and be placed anywhere on the violin depending on the shape and desire of the violinist. Choose the size that works best for you, depending on the amount of support you prefer, and regardless of what size violin or viola you play.
The Belvelin Collarbone Rests were designed 23 years ago by Eva Belvelin for some of her students who complained about discomfort or had a fear of dropping the violin. Today the Belvelin Collarbone Rests are used by many Concert Masters, Violin Professors and Violinists of all ages.
