Useless and a waste of money,

Pros: It's soft and comfortable on the chin rest.

Cons: Contrary to the appearance on promotional photos, including all those on USA online sites, the pad does not fix to the chinrest except on its surface. Therefore, the rest of it (the lower half) hangs loose and has to be adjusted and pulled down and tucked under the violin every time you raise your head from the violin, even for a second. And of course, it doesn't stay in that position.I found it to be useless and a waste of money..

Other: For me it was useless and a waste of mone. It is also expensive.

Very comfortable
0 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Very comfortable and easy to attach. I no longer get a red mark on my neck. I also like that they are washable. I have recommended them to pupils.

Cons: They smell a little funny at first, but this goes away after a week or so.

Very disappointing
2 out of 5 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.
