About This Brand

The World’s Most Famous Shoulder Rest, and Deservedly So

Violin and bow maker Joseph Kun pioneered the shoulder rest design that has become ubiquitous with violinists and violists worldwide, and a favorite with generations of artists. Starting with ergonomic design, Joseph Kun solved the age-old dilemma of discomfort for thousands of players. The original three-point adjustment was an innovation that has stood the test of time, remaining popular to this day. Always mindful of tone, Joseph Kun made sure that the new shoulder rest would be attached with minimal contact with the instrument. To meet these ambitious demands, high quality manufacturing was essential, and remains a hallmark of the Kun brand. Today, often in direct collaboration with artists, Kun continues to innovate with new designs and aesthetics, serving violinists and violists at all levels. Kun products are manufactured in Canada.

Asked On: 08/01/2018

Dear Shar Music personnel, What the difference between KUN Original Viola Shoulder rest (fit 15-17") & KUN Super Viola Shoulder rest (fit 15-17")? Are both of them all collapsible? And can fit the 16" VIOLA? Thank you so much. Best regards, Jessica (Yupin)

SHAR Answer:

Hello Yupin! The main difference between the Kun Super and the Kun Original is the maneuverable legs found on the Super. Unfortunately, neither of these shoulder rests are collapsible, but we carry the Kun Collapsible shoulder rest, which folds down more compactly. I hope this helps!

Asked On: 09/07/2017

Is this a short rest. I need a minimal height for my short neck! Also, will this fit a 14 in tertis style viola?

SHAR Answer:

Hi Pam, thanks for your question. Unfortunately, this shoulder rest will not fit a 14" viola. You may want to consider a Kun Original Violin Shoulder Rest. Typically, a full sized violin shoulder rest will fit a 14" viola. Please feel free to contact us directly at 1-800-248-7427 if you have any other questions.
