"The GelRest seems to have just the right thickness, density and freedom of placement to provide really great relief . . . "

With our new "Cling" adhesive system, GelRests can be peeled on or off as often as needed. This really helps to get the perfect placement when you install on your chinrest. Once in place, they stay in place and don't fall off.
We believe that a chinrest cushion doesn't have to be bulky and unattractive. That's why we make GelRests in 8 different shapes to fit a wide variety of chinrests.
I've been playing the violin for over 3 decades. As a result I have a permanent "lump" under the left side of my chin due to the wooden chin rest. Over the years playing, I've come to accept the continuing inflammation and accompanying pain that goes with being a violinist. Since I began using the GelRest, this suffering is no longer a reality for me . As a professional violinist, it is not uncommon for me to play for four or more hours at a time. Now that I use the Chinrest, I enjoy a painless musical experience and I no longer have to endure the unsightly inflammation I had always accepted as an inevitable price of being a violinist. Thank you Stephen for creating the GelRest.

I have tried almost every competing product before I discovered the GelRest. Now I am hooked on unmatched comfort and durability. It has a streamlined, cool look that is great for live performances and a favorite of all of my students.
