Pros: I purchased the Kun shoulder rest as a result of seeing a video on you tube from Red Desert Violin where you are shown how to adjust a Kun Violin shoulder rest. I found this extremely helpful. I'm very happy with the Kun; the best so far. It does need a bit of time to find what height and position on the violin suits you, but worth it - people have commented on the improvement of my playing both in confidence and posture.
Cons: The Kun sometimes slips off the shoulder or the chest. Once again, Red Desert Violin suggested wrapping something "grippy" on those parts of the shoulder rest. Those thick elastic bands the postman sometimes drops are very useful!
Other: Hats off to The String Zone for providing such excellent service in "test driving" various shoulder rests - and many thanks to their staff for posting things out so quickly!

Pros: I've Been using this for quite a while and it's been no problem as a shoulder rest.
Cons: The new plastic safety retention feature is no good. The shoulder rest fell down several times. I wish Kun would go back to the original rubber retaining feature,which was far more effective than the new one.

Pros: Clean looks, easy to fit, comfortable to use.
Cons: It took a while and some experimentation with adjusting it before I felt it was both comfortable and properly secure on the violin. Some instructions to help get the optimum arrangement would be helpful.

Pros: I knew that the Kun shoulder rest was an excellen product for the full size violin but was concerned it may not be so good for a 1/2 sized violin. It is adjustable and fits well, never falls off. The price offered was very good compared with other places that I looked.
Cons: No problems

Pros: Having tried many different shoulder rests, the kun was recommended to me by my violin teacher. It's nice to have a rest that not only fits properly but is also fully adjustable and very comfortable. I would recommend the kun rest to any violinist who is looking for a new one.

Cons: Dad had to pay for it.
