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 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.

I have finally found a comfortable rest for my chin when playing violin. Nice and neat too and unobtrusive. My friends are very impressed.

I am a beginner. Violin was simply painful and a comfy shoulder rest alone was still not comfy. I was on the verge of qutting until I got these chinrests!

I stopped using a standard shoulder rest last year because they always felt like more of an impediment than a help to me. I changed to a small pad attached with elastic for that. I felt that the contact points were all just right now except for a bit of pain from the chin rest. The GelRest solved that problem perfectly. I bought a black one for my violin with ebony fittings and the brown/boxwood one for the violin with the boxwood fittings. Both blend in beautifully with the esthetics and don't stand out as an "add-on." I finally have the perfect comfort level with my violins...a very inexpensive fix!
