The BonMusica violin shoulder rest is extremely versatile with adjustable height, width and curve for a precise fit and optimal comfort, making it one of our most popular shoulder rests.

  • Promotes hands-free stability for easy shifting and vibrato
  • Capable to obtain the exact contour of the player's shoulder
  • The foam padding is highly resistant to everyday wear and tear 
  • Ergonomically friendly by relieving tension through the neck and shoulders
  • Left-handed player friendly

To get the most of your rest, make sure the pads touch as much of your chest & shoulder as possible leaving no gaps

Absolutely amazing

This is the best shoulder rest, it keeps your violin in place, its extremely customizable to your liking, I cannot play with any other shoulder rest after this one. The only issue I have with it is that if you play sitting down for wayy too long it kinda hurts in your chest and ur arm gets tired but i dont think thats a shoulder rest problem. 10/10 recommend

Good shoulder rest for folks with the giraffe neck!

I bought this shoulder rest because I already have one and love it. My husband tweaked it a bit for me, but he passed away in August. I need to get someone to tighten the feet a bit on this one as it slips off my fiddle too easily. I also need to bend the piece that touches me a little as it bites into me when I'm playing. Bottom line is that I know I love this shoulder rest for my body build; it just needs a little tweaking. Thanks so much for having it available to me.

Best rest I’ve tried

After trying 4-5 styles of shoulder and chin rests, this malleable custom fit shoulder rest and one of my std height Guaneri style chin rests with a soft padded cover provides a secure shoulder-chest feel, comfort at my clavicle-neck area as well as a secure violin. It came highly recommended by my violin instructor as he had used the same device for many years. He quickly got the shape conforming to my shoulder and chest. Clearly, I would never have figured out the correct shapes on my own. Highly recommend both Bonmusica and great price point from Fiddlerman. Ray

Excellent Shoulder Rest

My experience has been very positive. I injured my shoulder and required surgery. That put my playing in the rear-view mirror… that is until I started using this rest. Highly recommended!

Great reviews, but be careful

I decided to try this shoulder rest partly because it's well reviewed. However, be careful of the metal pieces under the feet. This was my first violin and shoulder rest, and one of the feet slipped a few times. On the last time, the metal under one of the feet made a small scratch on the back of the violin. After that, I decided not to risk it anymore and purchased a different shoulder rest. Also, the instructions that were included weren't the best in my opinion. It may not be an issue for those who have used shoulder rests before, but it's a potential problem for some and something to be aware of.
