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 Ohrenform or Berber style GelRest is a great fit for any 4/4 size Ohrenform 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: 124mm long x 62mm wide

I have been using GelRests for about 10 years on various styles of chinrests and have always found them to be comfortable and eliminate any trace of chaffing or soreness under the chin, a great relief from chin burn.

Really is more comfortable to play with Gel Rest...playing more relaxed.

I purchased this to use with my new Ohrenform chinrest. It is just sufficiently soft to remind me not to "clench" or grip with my chin (an old habit I'm finally getting rid of).
I've used a gelrest before with a similar centred chinrest; but with the Ohrenform I find it much more relaxing.
