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 enjoyed playing again comfortably . The chin rest was uncomfortable so this helped out a lot. Thank you for creating a wonderful tool to use, so I can feel more confident about playing again.

I need the comfort, I've been using these for years, I have no "mark of the beast" on my chin as a result. I have several instruments and they seem to last a long time, the folks there are very friendly and helpful. Such a brilliant and useful accessory! Thank you GelRest!

The Gel Rest adds a whole new level of comfort to long hours of playing.

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.
