You asked and we listened. The Micro is a super-low (3/8" or 9mm) shoulder rest for young students, players with baroque instruments, violists, or anyone who needs a shoulder rest that adds a minimal amount of extra height. The name Micro comes from the "micro adhesive" that is used to attach this product to your instrument. Micro adhesive sticks securely, but can be removed and re-installed hundreds, even thousands, of times without losing its stick! That's because micro adhesive sticks via tiny suction cups instead of sticky tape, so it lasts far longer than ordinary tape based adhesives. Stick it in place, then remove it. Over and over. The Micro is 3" in diameter, the same dimension as the popular cosmetic sponge used by players for decades. You won't need rubber bands with the Micro, howeverType a description for this product here...

I am very happy with the GelRest Micro. It adheres well to my instrument. It is a little thicker and a lot firmer than the red cosmetic pad I had been using which suits me well. Be sure to view the video to get the discount.

This helps keep the instrument from slipping off the shoulder for those who don't want to use a standard shoulder rest.
