Everest shoulder rests were designed In the USA by a John’s Hopkins’ biomedical engineer in order to overcome the many shortcomings of existing traditional shoulder rests. The unique computer-modeled design of the Everest shoulder rest raises the violin to an ergonomically correct and comfortable playing angle. Teachers, students, and professionals alike have all praised this innovative and distinctive design: teachers love the way the fixed tilt trains correct playing angles, while students and professionals love the comfort, durability, and style.
The holding legs are made of a soft, non-skid, wear-resistant material, with additional height requirements built right into the body of the shoulder rest. Unlike most other shoulder rests, the Everest has three rubber grips per foot which means it stays on the violins better. The foam is made from high quality, extra-thick and extra-soft neoprene for long-lasting comfort and excellent support. The Everest comes in10 great colours (including the wood finish) and two styles (collapsiable or regular) for violin and is availble from 4/4 down to a 1/10. Also available for Violas 15″-16.5″.
