Gelrest for chinrest comfort


The GelRest is a contoured gel pad which sticks to your chinrest via a special "cling" adhesive. The cling adhesive lets you remove and re-stick the GelRest as often as needed. Now available in 7 styles that closely match the following traditional chinrests:

Strad, Guarneri, Teka, Flat Flesch, Ohrenform, Kaufman, and Guarneri 1/2 size.

Note that all styles can fit more than one type of chinrest. For example, the Guarneri 1/2 size also fits the Dresden 4/4 size. By measuring your chinrest and comparing with these dimensions you will be able to choose the GelRest that best fits your chinrest

Rather than simply cut from a flat sheet, like other cushioning materials, our gel is cast into a mold so it can achieve the cupped shape needed to fit the human chin. Once installed, GelRests maintain the look of a traditional chinrest.

The gel material used for the GelRest contains no silicone, and is even approved by the FDA.

GelRest is non-slip, even when wet, so holding your instrument is comfortable and effortless, whether it's a hot summer day or a cool autumn night.

Models and Sizes: GelRest's are available in colors that match the 3 traditional woods for violin fittings: Ebony, Boxwood, and Rosewood.

To Clean: GelRest is easy to clean, especially with the new cling adhesive. We recommend that you peel the GelRest off and wash in the sink with a drop of dishwashing liquid or other mild soap. Then, pat dry with a paper towel and re-install. The cling adhesive is waterproof so, if necessary, it can be washed as well.

Durability: A GelRest indeed is very comfortable, but also very durable. The gel does not compress or flatten over time. The gel is a solid material and will not leak.

Guarantee: A GelRest is guaranteed to be free from defects for a period of one year from the purchase date. In addition, if the purchaser is not satisfied with the product for any reason within 90 days of purchase, you may return it to us for a full refund. Refund of shipping cost is not included. Proof of purchase must be supplied to receive a cash refund.
