BonMusica Viola Shoulder Rest

I am hooked (so to speak) to the BonMusica shoulder rest. I have one for my violin and I really liked it. It felt like the violin was sliding or “creeping” on my shoulder when I played it using a different shoulder rest. So I got the BonMusica and feel in love with it. It might be psychosomatic mumbo jumbo but it seemed to help my violin stay in place. So when I decided I go with the viola I made sure to order the BonMusica shoulder rest for viola. So glad I did!! They say perception is reality and it must be right because once again it seems the instrument isn’t sliding/creeping on my shoulder when I’m “trying” to play the viola.

Bon Musica Viola Shoulder Rest for 16in Glasser Viola

Had to create a one inch spacer using a 1 and 1/2 in screw and washers. Attached to the shoulder side. The rest indicated it was 16 in. In my opinion it was loser to 15 in. I like it better than the Everest shoulder rest. I have large shoulders and the Bon Musica Viola Shoulder Rest can be formed and adjusted to the individual. I recommend this rest.

Get exact measurements of lower bout before you buy

Good shoulder rest but if you have a Tertis model viola, make sure you get measurements of the lower bout before choosing a shoulder rest size. I bought the shoulder rest based on the viola size (16") and even at the widest setting, I couldn't get it to fit. I suppose I should've known better. I am using it with my 15.5" teaching viola with a narrower lower bout and it works just fine.

Bon Musica Viola Shoulder Rest

This shoulder rest is great! I am a fairly tall person. This rest gives me the support that I need so I don’t have to use my left hand to support the instrument. Almost perfect.

Excellent.

I have a 16.5 viola and have struggled to find a shoulder rest that will actually accommodate my instrument. This one? It fits perfectly and has let me get back in to my practice without having to constantly re-fit or re-align the shoulder rest.
