Gelrest Chinrest Solution and Micro Review
Why use a Gelrest?
A violin chinrest is carved from hard wood, usually ebony, one of nature’s hardest. The contact between this hard chinrest surface and our vulnerable face, chin, and neck has caused generations of violinists, from beginners to professionals, to endure skin irritations, bruises, and red spots. Often called a violin hickey, or rose patch, these bruises are more than just unsightly; they can be quite painful and typically result in a reduction in practice time, at the very least. Worse yet, if your chinrest is gouging into your face, the tension that results can easily migrate to your hand and fingers, especially in the left hand, and can even cause back and shoulder pain, which can affect your bowing arm. So, having a comfortable instrument is crucial for mastering basic techniques like playing in tune, vibrato, and even bowing.
The chinrest arrived on time and in good condition. It was easy to attach to my viola and felt great immediately. I would recommend it to anyone needing a bit of comfort.

In this day and age where everything goes wrong and the burden of it always lands on the buyer, it is a great comfort to do business with a small, caring company like this. The products are fine, but as usual there were problems and they eased things better than I could have hoped by sending the new piece first and making the return easy only after I was outfitted with the proper item. Thanks guys.
The package arrived on time and in good condition. I was anxious to have the gelrest for my chinrest. I kept feeling as if I needed a bit more padding and sure enough, it is perfect. It adds just a small bit to the chinrest making it at a more comfortable height and it is exactly soft enough without being too soft. [Goldilocks??] I'm really glad that I bought it and recommend it highly.
