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 Guarneri style GelRest is a great fit for any 4/4 size large plate Guarneri violin or viola chinrest. For the medium plate Guarneri, choose the Strad GelRest. 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: 105mm long x 65mm wide

I use both the GelRest and the Micro on my violin and viola and have been using them for years. I wouldn't be without either and they have saved my neck and my life as a violinist! I do not use a shoulder rest, and use the Micro in a very thin width, just to grab my clothing a bit. It is so comfortable and a life-saver! I can't say enough about either product except...THANK YOU!!!

While the Gelrest fits my violin perfectly and I LOVE the color, I was hoping that it would be as thick as the previous pad I had purchased many years ago. I was looking for a replacement for it, but I guess that particular product is no longer available. I really liked the thickness of the previous version. Also, I would LOVE to purchase a MUCH larger version of this pad to be used as a shoulder pad.

I've been using GelRest since 2005. My violin hickey is long gone and so is the scar. You've never experienced comfort like this playing the violin and it is a more than reasonable priced. Try it - you won't regret it.

I play a lot being a Nashville musician. I developed another knot come up on my neck, I purchased one of these and it seems to be going away. I would encourage anyone having problems with their chin to get one!

I am very pleased with the GelRest. It has made my Guarneri chin rest comfortable. I plan on ordering one for a Kaufman style chin rest soon.

As a newbie I found playing the violin painful. If I hadn't found GelRest, I wouldn't have continued lessons. Very comfortable!

I found the GelRest to be a quality and effective product. It fits my chin-rest accuracy, the color blends with the decor of the violin , and it keeps the violin from pivoting under my jaw.
Customer service is excellent.

I love the GelRest! I use it on my viola, which I play 4-8 hrs every day. Very comfortable against my skin. I purchased 4 so far - 2 for myself, and 2 as gifts for others. Happy to continue using these!

I've used GelRests for years and I can't live without them! Years ago I had severe skin irritation from friction from my chinrests. GelRest solved that issue right away!

This is the second GelRest I have purchased. I am very impressed with the quality of the product. It is comfortable, fits my violin to perfection, and lasts just about forever. I highly recommend it.
