Genius accessory for string instruments.
The two-layer design of the AcoustaGrip Concert Master is a key feature. One layer is made from special acoustical materials, delivering enhanced sound and ultimate comfort. The other layer attaches to the back of your instrument using micro-air technology. The Concert Master's ergonomic design sets the violin's position at the most favored angle for sound projection and ease of performance. No more sores, marks or shoulder pain.
The Concert Master attaches with No Glues or Clamps and helps to preserve and protect the quality and condition of the violin or viola. The 1697 ˜Napoleon' Stradivarius and the 1778 ˜DeLay' Guadagnini enjoyed AcoustaGrip for many years. Both instruments were acclaimed for their condition and set world record sales prices.
The AcoustaGrip is a non-clamping, non-stiff and non-muting shoulder pad lift accessory; It does not clamp onto the instrument, as clamping mutes and diminishes the wood's vibrations. It provides an comfortable ergonomically designed cushion that fits between the instrument and the shoulder of the musician that will not fall off and sticks to the instrument without glues.The AcoustaGrip will not dent, scratch, or damage the sides, back or any part of the instrument. It can be removed and replaced again and again and is easily cleaned with a wet paper towel if needed.Many find it also lessens and may diminish the musicians sores and markings on their chin, neck and collarbone, as it allows constant freedom. It stores easily in the instrument case. The AcoustaGrip increases the volume of sound, adds better quality and increases the production of overtones.

Comments about AcoustaGrip Concert Master Shoulder Rest:
My fiddle teacher showed me this, and it has been a godsend! The Wolf I had been using is really good quality and well-made, but I could never adjust it to make it comfortable. It was too tall, or not high enough, and it still bothered my collarbone. The Acoustagrip is like not using a shoulder rest at all! It is SO comfortable! If I had it to do over again, I might get the thicker model, but this one works fine. I haven't had a chance to clean it or to see how long the adhesive will last, since it is still sticking fine on the violin after a month. They also say that it doesn't interfere with the acoustics of the instrument, but that was never an issue with the Wolf. It has always been an issue of comfort. If you need a shoulder rest but are bothered by the "mechanical" types, try this one!
