Kun Collapsible Viola Shoulder Rest

Kun Collapsible Viola Shoulder Rest is modeled after the Kun Original shoulder rest. The design is practical and simple. It is adjustable in 3 directions, which include height, width, and tilt. Kun has a patented locking device on the end members. This prevents the shoulder rest from tilting so much that it touches the instrument. The feet swivel so the player can adjust the shoulder rest’s position on the back of the instrument.  In addition to these features found in the original model, the Kun Collapsible Viola Shoulder rest features feet that fold down. The collapsible feet provide carrying and storage ease.

The Kun Original has remained the favorite of amateur and professional players alike.

Shoulder rests add height to the viola, as well as prevents the instrument from slipping. This prevents tension in the neck. Shoulder rests also make techniques such as shifting and vibrato much easier.

To use the shoulder rest,  turn your instrument over so you can see the back. Be careful not to put any pressure on the bridge. Slide the rubber feet of the shoulder rest onto the viola very carefully. The dip in the shoulder rest, the shorter end, should be under the chin-rest. Adjust position as necessary for comfort. If the shoulder rest is falling off easily, you may need to adjust the feet to a smaller width. Likewise, if the shoulder rest feels too tight, you may need to adjust the feet to a larger width.
