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.
