Kun Bravo Shoulder Rest for Violin. A shoulder rest must fit snugly on the instrument. During playing, it sits between the chin and the shoulder. These factors require both strength and flexibility. The Kun Bravo's bent hardwood laminates provide the only solution, and also help your instrument produce a great sound! Handcrafted in Italy from European curly maple, the Bravo's base is finished like the back of a fine violin, while polished brass parts add a final dash of elegance. The result? A shoulder rest graced with startling good looks and the exceptional functionality players expect from their Kun.
