    Comments about Kun ORIGINAL Violin Shoulder Rest:

    I had an older style HUN shoulder rest before and this new style is much better. The parts that clamp into the violin are now hard rubber rather than the soft rubber that rip and tear away exposing the violin to the metal underneath. It is also very comfortable so I don't have neck and shoulder strain.

        Comments about Kun ORIGINAL Violin Shoulder Rest:

        They need to update the product picture, because I did not exactly receive what was pictured. I ordered this thinking it had the removable rubber pieces on the end hooks. I guess KUN changed their product, because now the whole hook ends are made entirely of this "hard-gummy" type of material. This shoulder rest still serves its purpose, but it does not look the same. This is more of cosmetic con, because as stated before, this shoulder rest still serves its purpose.

                Comments about Kun ORIGINAL Violin Shoulder Rest:

                Greetings,
                I'm an experienced musician but new to the violin. I've been playing for several decades. The violin has been the biggest challenge to play for me, and this device gave a lot of stability to my instrument to permit my hand to move about on the finger board without needing that hand to also hold up the instrument. It is easy to install, and has really improved my control of the instrument while trying to learn proper technique. I would recommend this to any level player. I think this sounds like a commercial, but I'm a 57 year old guitar head from NJ. This device really is worth the money.

                    I have only been playing violin for 2 years (I have played mandolin and other instruments for 40 years) and was using a no-name rest that came with my violin. The Kun was a huge improvement. I have wide shoulders and this rest stays put. It also keeps its settings when I remove it. It's making playing much easier.

                      These are the only shoulder rests I would consider using

                      Comments about Kun ORIGINAL Violin Shoulder Rest:

                      An excellent product which will last many years, unlike some identical looking copied shoulder rests from another manufacturer. I have used the original Kun shoulder rests successfully for many years on other violins - I like to keep a correctly adjusted shoulder rest in each violin case rather than change them from one violin to another. I also like the fact that replacement feet are available if necessary; however, the current feet do not wear as much as the older ones with separate rubber covers did. My only disappointment was the excessive cost of the postage for what was essentially a small item.

                              These are what they are, but they do what they do well. I have more than one, I have more than one violin. I have one for my viola also. These are much better than a folded towel on your shoulder. And it lets me move my hands more naturally since the device and my chin are keeping the instrument in place. I keep buying them as I ad bowed instruments that you shoulder (got a fiddle also). I'd buy another if I needed it.
