Our GelRest chin rest covers have an incredible, human-like texture that you have to feel to believe. We achieve this baby-skin texture with an ultra soft, non-absorbent, plastic material. We don't use foams because they are like sponges -- full of tiny air pockets that absorb dirt, sweat, and even bacteria. A GelRest will give you a violin chin rest that gently molds to your jawbone, yet is durable and easy to keep clean.
The Flesch style GelRest is a great fit for any 4/4 size flat Flesch violin or viola chinrest. The peel-and-stick adhesive makes installation easy. It stays securely in place and can be removed cleanly with no residue. Easy to clean with any mild, streak-free cleaner on a soft cloth, or paper towel. Say good-bye to your violin hickey as you transform your hard chin rest into one that feels comfortable, yet looks good too!
To see how this GelRest might look on your chinrest, use the following dimensions: 100mm long x 57mm wide

I've been using one of these for a number of years and recently bought another. They make playing the viola a dream.

I found the GelRest pad for my chin rest to be great. It seems to be staying in place under a lot of wriggling around when I play. It is very comfortable. So I would recommend this product. I sent a picture of my chin rest to GelRest and they told me just what I should buy!

I've been using my GelRest for a couple of weeks now and it's fantastic. I've recently changed my chin rest to a SAS and the Flesch shape fits nicely to this. I'd been struggling for some time trying to get comfortable whilst playing my violin and the GelRest has solved this problem with the added benefit that it remains place on the chinrest.I would recommend this product strongly. (especially for boney chins !) I'm an amateur musician and play with the Oldham Symphony Orchestra. I will be recommending this product to my fellow musicians.

Very useful: I use my GelRest with a Wittner Augsburg violin chinrest, which adjusts wonderfully.

I have been using GelRest for some time now and recently bought a wood color model. I use a plastic Wittner chinrest and the new model GelRest stays firmly in place!!! BEAUTIFUL! I play in the Gulbenkian Orchestra in Lisbon and have a very full schedule. The GelRest never leaves my viola. It is simply the most beautiful and comfortable chinrest pad on the market today.
