Choosing Your Perfect Shoulder Rest for Violins

Selecting the best violin shoulder rest is a personal journey, one that should align with your comfort, playing style, and musical aspirations. At Simply for Strings, we love encouraging players in their musical journey, so we’ve comprised a list of helpful tips to guide you:

  • Pay attention to how the violin shoulder rest feels. The best accessory should provide support without causing discomfort or pain on the pressure points. Your comfort is paramount for succinct and captivating playing.
