I own 2 Kinder Chinder Pads and am about to buy a third as a gift. They are very comfortable, can be placed in the case attached to the violin. Furthermore, I actually feel my violins sound better, rounder, fuller and mellower.

I bought this for a student playing a half-size violin because he is growing quickly. It fit fine and works perfectly, despite it being for 3/4 to 4/4 violins. He greatly appreciates the foam inside! It helps him hold the instrument more firmly and the fact that we can leave it on the instrument inside the case and begin playing without searching for rubber bands is convenient.

In getting back to violin playing, I wasn't happy with the rigid shoulder rests I had grown up using. I preferred the more direct and looser connection of no shoulder rest, but that required using a cloth to prevent contact pain. This pad works just right for me. I'm experimenting with adding a bit more padding in the shoulder pocket which has only a very thin piece of foam.

I felt the comfort right at the first moment of trying it on. Now I can really clamp the violin using my chin and shoulder. The cloth covers the hard surface of the existing chin rest and also the metal part that otherwise sticks into my neck. The only negative thing is it doesn't come with the internal chin pad (to use in lieu of a chin rest). However, you won't need it if you already have a chin rest.

Let's face it- beginning violin students already have enough to cope with. Why add the constant irritation of chin rest hardware to the list? The Kinder Chinder makes lessons AND practice so much more comfortable! I recommend these to all my students.

I've tried about every type shoulder rest there is: inexpensive to expensive. Nothing has worked because I have narrow shoulders and long neck. But the Kinder Chinder Pad combination of chinrest pad and shoulder pad works well. The simple design keeps my chin in place, pads the hardware at the end of the violin, and puts just enough padding on the shoulder to provide the comfort and support I've been missing.

This is the best chin rest for little children, that I have found. This chin rest is perfect for little ones and starters. The small is also very good as well with the large and medium. I would suggest the kinder chinder shin rest for little violin starters.

Hi Pierre, thank you for your question! If the Large provides too much elastic, you may want to look into the Medium & Small sizes for this pad.

Hello! This large Kinder Chinder is suitable for a 3/4-4/4 size violin, or any full size viola. If your son plays on a smaller instrument, the medium Kinder Chinder fits a 1/4-1/2 size violin and the small Kinder Chinder fits a 1/16-1/8. I hope this helps!
