The Bonmusica violin shoulder rest. Pliable metal base allows for a high degree of custom fit.

This rest can be customised to a very high level and is ideal for players who feel their instrument can slip down, especially in the higher playing positions.

The hook can be moved to provide a good anchorage at the prefered playing position. Height and tilt in 2 planes combined with a bendable plate allow an almost infinite range and will enable the vast majority of players to achieve a comfortable playing experience.


  • Pliable baseplate for custom fit
  • Height and tilt adjustable-extra long legs available
  • Replacement parts available
  • Made in Germany

Great relief

Good if complex

Pros: A good shoulder rest. Takes a little time to get all the vaiables correct, but after that it works. It corrected a posture problem which I have had for a long time.

Cons: A little expensive.

excellent for giving height under the neck

Pros: It is easy to adjust and really makes a difference to how I can angle my violin around my shoulder and importantly giving me height as I have a long neck.

Cons: It doesn't fit into my case into the slot where the old one fitted, so I have to carry it separately. The box it came in is not suitable for constant opening and closing and storing the chin rest - it would be good if it came in a more sturdy box or something like a hinged case that you get with spectacles.

Other: I'm not sure whether on your rating scale 5 is excellent or 1 - I want to rate it as excellent so will tick 5

Secure at last!

Pros: It is adjustable to just about any position. It helps to keep the violin stable without much slipping, very important to a beginner! It also is very light weight. After trying other makes. this is by far the best.

Cons: It is expensive compared to other makes.

Works for me.

Pros: I have been trying to work without a rest but found that I am unable to free up the fingers of the left hand so I tried one rest which did not work then I spied this one online and , though it is taking time to work into the different placing of the violin it is definitely freeing up my left hand Many thanks.

Cons: There is nothing that so far I have not liked unless you would provide a fitting service!!!! The instructions are adequate to the task.
