The Impressionist - The Most Revolutionary Advance in Violin Comfort Since... the Chinrest! The Impressionist is the first real improvement in chinrest comfort in 177 years. Just soften in hot water, towel-dry, and place it on top of your violin or viola chinrest. Holding the instrument normally for five seconds allows The Impressionist to take an exact impression of your jaw. Give it fifteen minutes to cool, and that's all there is to it. You can reshape it as many times as you wish!

Designed by Paul Anastasio, this chinrest comforter adheres directly to the chinrest and permanently molds to the exact shape of your chin. Great for players who have trouble finding a comfortable chinrest and don’t like the way that traditional chinrest comforters slip and slide under the chin. Also works well as a spacer for players with very long necks.

  •     Permanently molds to the exact shape of your chin
  •     Soft, rubber-like material is comfortable under the chin
  •     No glue or tape necessary
  •     Once molded, maintains its shape indefinitely
  •     Made in the USA
  •     Latex Free

Amazing Indeed

I was hesitating a bit about buying this because I saw a lot of medium-normal reviews, nothing breathtaking. I finally decided to give it a try (even though the shipping to Spain is more expensive than the item itself) and I don't regret it at all ! It's extremely flexible when you put it in boiling water, it becomes like a gum and softens up to your chin shape !! Super quick, easy and solved the problem of my uncomfortable chinrest until I buy a better one. It's true that adds some weight to the violin and height to the neck but could be a perfect go-to chinrest comforter if you don't really know the shape you need to look for in a chinrest to feel comfortable enough, or even if yours (wooden or plastic one) is not feeling right. I will definitely buy it again if needed and I extremely recommend it for any type of violinist. This is my first, but not last, investment on Fiddlerman :) (My dear carbon fiber bow.... I'M ON MY WAY!!!)


It works. Just

It works. Just follow the instructions and don't do what I did and submerge it in the pot, because bits of it will stick and break off. Find a glass that's barely wider than it is and lay a fork or something diagonally to keep it submerged. It didn't stick to the ceramic cup or metal utensils, just, ironically, the non-stick pot. Otherwise, it stays on the chinrest and holds its shape.


I highly recommend

I highly recommend this to anyone that has trouble holding their instrument, or has pains after playing. Holding the instrument is in my opinion the foundation of being able to play well since it affects everything you do! It's easy to install, easy to reinstall if you happen to need to tweak it, and it is very comfortable. Fiddlershop had it to my door within 2 days, and I will never go without one again.I made a full review on the fiddlerman forum if anyone would like to read more about my experience.
