Excellent comfort and great for allergies
5 out of 6 found the following review helpful

Pros: Great product if you want total comfort when playing. If you suffer from allergies to the wood and metal on chin rests, this is perfect. The original colour seems to be made of more maliable material than the new black version. I first bought the black colour but found it did not mould well enough to my chin rest shape. I would only buy the original colour now.

Cons: Unless your chin rest is already the same shape as the Strad pad, I would not recommend the black version. No complaints as to the original colour.

No good for those with metal allergies.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: There was nothing I liked about it.

Cons: Didn't like the feel of the rubber material. More importantly, I bought it to cover the metal legs of my chin rest, which I'm allergic to, but it didn't. Fed up of using cloths etc. Think it's time for a new chin rest!

Sore neck......thing of the past. Get a Strad Pad.
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: Love the Strad pad, the larger version and the tan colour work really well. Soft and comfortable, good value, mine lasted 3 years before I had to replace it.

Cons: The black Srad Pad is made of harder material, not so comfortable.

I couldn't manage without this now

Pros: The Strad Pad is the ONLY product I have found which prevents neck sores.

Cons: My last one suffered in hot weather - the velcro detached itself from the pad and I couldn't find a suitable glue in order to reattach it.

Very disappointing
2 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: I suppose it does act as a cushion, but see below.

Cons: Very poorly made. Maybe this is produced in someone's back shed? The edge of the pad is ragged, and the surface is pitted. On the packet, it says, 'For that "Professional" Look!' I don't think so. I prefer not to spoil the appearance of my not-so-expensive violin.

Other: Looks a bit like a chocolate pudding. Sorry to be so negative.
