About This Item

The Impressionist

The Most Revolutionary Advamce in Violin Comfort Since... the Chinrest!

In 1831, violinist Louis Spohr invented the chinrest. Since then, violinists and fiddlers alike have tried, and usually failed, to find a chinrest that really fits them. The sad results: chronic pain and discomfort, teeth clenching and poor positioning.

Professional fiddler and educator Paul Anastasio knew there must be a better way.

The Impressionist is the first real improvement in chinrest comfort in 177 years. Just soften in hot water, towel-dry, and place it on top of your violin or viola chinrest. Holding the instrument normally for five seconds allows The Impressionist to take an exact impression of your jaw. Give it fifteen minutes to cool, and that's all there is to it. And, you can reshape it as many times as you wish!

Question by:

Asked On: 09/28/2016

How does it adhere to the chinrest? Does it damage the finish when removed?

SHAR Answer:

Thanks for your question James! The Impressionist is attached by softening the chinrest comforter with hot water. Once softened, you can mold and attach it to your instruments chinrest by making a firm impression. You can remove The Impressionist by placing your thumbs on the edge and pushing up gentle. This will not damage your chinrest finish. Once removed, it can be re-softened and reshaped indefinitely. Hope this helps!

Asked On: 07/14/2016

What material is this item made from? Thanks!

SHAR Answer:

Hi Susan, this Impressionist Chinrest Comforter is made from a type of plastic that has a remarkably low melting point. That way, it can soften easily in hot water and then take an impression of your chin. It feels almost like rubber and it has pretty good grip. It is non-irritating to skin and it should adhere naturally to your chinrest. It is not soft and squishy or gel-like at all, so that makes it fairly different than some of the other chinrest-cover products out there that have more soft or gel-like cushioning. It is really quite firm and dense when you touch it. We hope that these details are helpful to you. Thanks for your question!
