These two products used together worked for me. The Sattler Strad Pad eliminated the "ow" from my grip at the chin, and the Gelrest gave me a bit more thickness to rest the violin on the collar bone, giving me a more secure hold.
I wish there were choices of thickness, not just diameter, as I would have liked a slightly thicker pad. That said, it looks very discreet on my violin and is extremely comfortable. The ordering process was easy and delivery was fast.
Wonderful products and support via telephone. These are the products I needed as a violinist.. Strad Pad cushions jaw bone and Gelrest cshions collar bone. I have benefited especially in times of extended playing periods.
I used to use a washcloth to cover my chin rest for better support and to avoid neck irritation. I've been using the Strad Pad for a little over a month now and it works very well. It provides the support and comfort previously provided by my washcloth and protects against the violinists "hickey" on my neck. But unlike the washcloth, it stays in place and I don't have to constantly adjust it. Great product. I definitely would recommend giving it a try.
It makes the chinrest much more comfortable, and a more secure hold for my setup. I don’t use a shoulder rest so that is important.
