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.

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.

It's a bit tricky to find the right setting because there are so many ways to tweak, but once I found it, it fits perfectly. Grips very securely. Great service and fast shipping as usual from Fiddlershop. Thanks!


Bon Musica Viola Shoulder Rest

I bought this for my 15 1/2" viola. I really need a little more support than from the other shoulder rests. I have one for my violin already. I love for my viola. It gives me a lot more support and feeling of being secure with the hold, without actually being chained to it, so to speak. On my violin, after I got more comfortable holding, the Bin Musica seemed to restrain me too much. I think with the viola being heavier and larger, I may be using this permanently. I really like it better on my viola. It feels like part of the viola with me. Now, remember, what one person likes in a shoulder rest or chin rest, someone else might not. That does not mean the product is not good. This is a good product. The customer service with Fiddlershop was perfect.

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.
