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 Strad style GelRest is a great fit for any 4/4 size Strad 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: 95mm long x 60mm wide

After having to get cysts removed 3 times, I discovered the gel rest. No more skin issues!!! With so many hours of playing a day, it is a real life and neck saver!!!

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.

The GelRest completely got rid of a stubborn sore I'd developed from the chinrest. I've used it ever since (about ten years). It's so comfortable, and I recommend the GelRest to all my students. Thank you Steve!!!

I have been using GelRest for some years. So comfortable and it adds just a little extra height to the chin rest which is what I wanted.
Brilliant product. The customer service is excellent too. Thank you!

The great security afforded by these very comfortable gelrests makes it easier to play with enhanced accuracy and facility - once you've played with one you'll never want to be without!

I enjoy the GelRest, which provides the perfect amount of cushioning and looks good to the eye. Any more padding and they would be too squishy.
Thank you, Stephen, for your help and standing behind your product. Great customer service. Merry Christmas.
