Our GelRest chin rest covers have an incredible, almost human, 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 Wittner style GelRest is a great fit for your 4/4 Wittner violin or viola left-mount chinrest. The peel-and-stick adhesive is extra strong to stick to the non-slip Wittner, or any plastic, chinrest surface. 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!

It fits my chin rest perfectly and is so comfortable. My neck and jaw feel much better now. This is my second GelRest, purchased after getting a new chin rest, and I don’t intend to play without one ever again.

After receiving the gel rest, I followed the instructions o cutting to fit. It has been an interesting addition to relieve the pain of the hard chin rest. Still working on getting accustomed to it. However, I am glad to have purchased this piece. For an older person, this is definitely a help.

I have had constant neck irritation which made playing for long periods very uncomfortable. Now, I don't even notice that time has passed and am enjoying playing like never before. The "mark" I had is virtually gone.
