I've used Kun Original shoulder rests for over 30 years and they've served me well. When my old rest began to wear out, I had no idea anything had changed in the design, so bought a new rest at my local music store. It wasn't until I opened the box at home that I learned the rest was collapsible (wasn't an option when I bought my first Kun) and also had these awful, overmoulded forks (aka "feet"). Although this particular model isn't collapsible, the feet are still dreadful because they slide all over my instrument. The rest not only doesn't stay in place, but it often doesn't stay on the violin either. The original rubber tubing/classic forks are infinitely because they stay right where you put them and don't move or slide everywhere while playing. Kun does still have the rubber tubing/classic fork feet available, but you have to contact Kun directly for them.

I had a Wolf Forte Secondo shoulder rest for years and it fell off all. the. time. I resorted to anchoring it with a rubberband and I still had issues. I ordered a Kun after a recommendation from my teacher and I love it! I've been playing on it for a little over a month and it hasn't fallen off once!

I have used Kun for violin since I started playing, and now have ordered one for my younger brother. I have found it to stay on very well, though it does fall off around once a month or so... :) I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good shoulder rest! Chloe

I've had a kun with the old rubber over metal feet for a long time so i wanted to buy a new one for a back up. I noticed they changed the "feet" so it's like having rubbery material directly attached to the metal. I actually like this idea better because the rubber from the old model would deteriorate/crack especially if you lived in a cold/dry climate. I've not had any issues with the feet not staying on my violin. I adjust both sides to the 3rd hole and it fits great.

I've had a Kun for 15 years, loved it and recommended it to countless students. Since the change to the new feet I have discouraged students from buying the Kun because it will not stay on any instrument. It's a shame because it's otherwise a great all-around shoulder rest. Until they bring back the old feet I'll be recommending the Wolf.

Everything would be good about this shoulder rest except that with the new legs (teflon? can't tell what this material is), the rest does not stay on the violin anywhere as well as with the older model (latex rubber tube-covered "legs"). After some heavy playing, the rest slips off. Can be very annoying and risky if you are performing.

I would recommend Kun. They are comfortable and light! It makes it a lot easier for you to hold up your violin if you dont have weight lagging you down. Sometimes I almost forget I even have mine on!
