Strad Pad

I've been using a Strad Pad for years and it makes all the difference! I used to have an **** callous on my jawline from it rubbing from against the chin rest while practicing. Ever since I started using a Strad Pad, that callous has gone away and practicing is lot more comfortable. I tried a bunch of different chin rests hoping to find something that was more comfortable, but I found it wasn't the chin rest that was the issue. It was just that the surface of the chin rest was too hard and irritating to my neck. Having that soft Strad Pad cushion made playing so much more comfortable and I definitely feel more relaxed now. I would highly recommend this product.

I use a washcloth… I think it works better. I think mine didn’t come with instructions or they were too weird for me to follow. I’m not sure what the alcohol is for and where things stick, so I don’t use it.

It makes the chinrest much more comfortable, and a more secure hold for my setup. I don’t use a shoulder rest so that is important.

works good but stinks

It works well as a cushion but the material stinks. Even after washing it according to the instructions it still smells funny. It also takes a lot to get the soap out of it because the material is a lot like a sponge -when you think you've got all the soap out, you squish it and more soap comes out of it.

Staler Straddle Pad

I recently decided to play without a shoulder rest. I first tried the pad as designed and found that it seemed to mute the sound some. I did find that it helped protect my neck from violin hickey but I still found that it of course did not help the discomfort on my collarbone. By adding a little Velcro and placing it so that the pad was on the back directly opposite it’s design, was much more beneficial. It prevents discomfort on my neck and collarbone and prevents the violin from slipping and doesn’t mute the sound. I can now relax my jaw grip on the violin and it has helped reduce tension. I am enjoying the freedom and tone of playing without a shoulder rest. The material and shape works well with addition of a little stick on Velcro to the bottom Chinrest bracket and to the back of the Chinrest to hold it in place.
