This cotton violin chinrest cover/comforter/pad provides additional chin, neck, and shoulder comfort to your violin!
It’s designed for the Guarneri Style Chinrest (and also fits the Zitsman and Varga chinrests). It has a pocket which hooks over the chinrest, covers the chinrest barrels, and lies comfortably under the "shoulder" area. Elastic bands secure the cover to the back of the violin.
This cover is machine washable (on low temperature) - let it air dry!
I have been throwing a piece of thick black cotton cloth over my shoulder every time I played my violin. I purchased a new instrument in January 2020 and the ebony Guarneri style chin rest that came on the violin caused the violin to dig into my neck and collar bone no matter how may adjustments I made. When I saw this Cotton Chinrest Cover advertised on the Fiddlershop site I ordered it right away. It's perfect! No more pain or red marks, and the cover can be left on the violin when it's put away in the case. The chinrest cover fits snugly over the chinrest and doesn't slip or move around. A great buy!
These chin rest covers are great. Comfortable and fit well. No more kerchief sliding around, and they are completely washable. As always the fiddlershop customer service is awesome. I'm always excited to need something so I can order from them.
There is a design problem with the violin. The End Button and the chin rest fittings jab you in the throat when you play. Some intense players even develop a violin hicky on their throat. Besides that, it is uncomfortable to have this hardware rubbing against your neck. You will notice many professionals who try to solve this with handkerchiefs or towels (watch Itzhak Perman). Or Fiddlershop’s own Gibbles, who pulls up his collar to protect his neck. Enter the Chin Rest Cover, a marvelous, inexpensive device that solves the problem by covering the end button and the chin rest hardware. It also covers the chin rest, to keep it from getting sweaty during long playing sessions. An elegant solution to an old problem.
