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 Teka 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: 106mm long x 61mm wide

This was for my grandson who finds it comfortable and soothing to the irritation he previously experienced.

The GelRest has been part of my setup for the past two years. Without question, it has created the most comfortable posture/balance I've ever experienced with my viola. Greater comfort has translated into me having far greater endurance and fluidity in my playing.
I highly recommend the GelRest for any player who has sensitive skin, or allergies to woods and stains.

It's working out better than expected. I'd used GelRests before, but I didn't have the correct shape for my chinrest. Now I do, and it's so comfortable that I'm never aware that it's there. Now it seems as if the violin is a part of me, and not some object that I need to grab and hold. So, I can focus all my attention on my playing and forget about trying to hold the instrument up.
It's astonishingly inexpensive--I'd gladly pay 10 times the price! And it's very unobtrusive, much less so than a cloth cushion.
I'm ordering my second one today!

I hated that red mark of dried skin I always had on my neck from playing. Not only does the GelRest get rid of it, but it makes playing a much more comfortable experience! No problems having it shipped to the UK.

Fits perfectly and is very comfortable. I would recommend it to anyone!
