The Gelrest Micro shoulder pad is perfect for the violinist who doesn't use a shoulder rest but still wants protection plus a surface that doesn't slide. Having this secure connection keeps a violinist from having to use excess tension to hold the instrument in place. The Micro is a super low shoulder rest and easily attaches to your instrument without sticky tape or rubber bands by using a new micro adhesive technology, derived from the study of the common gecko. Sticks securely and removes cleanly with no damage to your instrument. No more slipping and sliding!
The Gelrest Micro is awesome. Helps with the small gap to rest my viola comfortably. I've tried other shoulder rests and like the this the best. It is more compact and not bulking. I can leave it on and my viola fits in my case with no issues. Makes my viola feel more secure.
The Gelrest-Micro keeps my fiddle from slipping off the shoulder. I have about twenty other shoulder rests. After using all of these, "comfort" means little for me because nothing but practice can make me a better player (darn!). With my short neck, the Micro is a good, no-hassel way to keep the fiddle where it is supposed to be.
It was perfect for me and fairly economal more practical than a shoulder rest (that I have never used) I recommend to anyone .
I can use a traditional shoulder rest on a Violin with satisfactory results. I was never able to find a shoulder rest that was comfortable when using the Viola. With the Viola I had constant irritation on my clavicle, even after trying several different styles. I switched to ( Gelrest - Micro ) and was much more comfortable. After moving the pad a few times I found a location that was very satisfactory. As a side note I can put the Viola in the case without removing a shoulder rest an unexpected and appreciated side result.
The product would be good, but it just keeps falling off, even fresh from the package. Frustrating—it’s my second one like this. I may try to find a way to adhere it w/out damaging my instrument. Basically, it’s perfect as a cushion & just the right size, but once you stick it on, keep your instrument under the chin & hang on!
