About This Item

Mach One V16: The Ergonomic Shoulder Rest for Violists

The legendary fit and feel of the Mach One in an updated high-tech version. The V16, for viola, has the unique highly-curved shape that so many violists have discovered, but in a more economical and lighter synthetic double-injected version. Firm and comfortable support, with a ridged rubberized material for added grip. Easily washable. Adjusts to fit most violas with a lower bout measuring between 235mm-270mm (9.25”-10.6”). See images for how to measure the lower bout.

About This Brand

Designed and developed by Canadian violin maker Peter Mach over 20 years ago, the famous "S-Shaped" Mach One has become a favorite with thousands of violists and violinists. Designed specifically for the player who has had suffered shoulder pain due to unsupportive rests. Beautiful and integrated design not only complements your instrument's wood and shape, but minimizes the size of the feet. Molded from a single piece of rubber, the feet will never damage your instrument. Although no shoulder rest will work well for everyone, the Mach One has gained legions of loyal users who say, "it supports so well that it feels like nothing at all!"

Asked On: 09/01/2019

Hello, would you recommend this shoulder rest more to someone with a tall neck or short neck? Thank you.

SHAR Answer:

Hello Guadalupe! The Mach One V-16 viola shoulder rest is somewhat middle of the road in height. It maxes out at 2.25 inches tall at the highest curve of the rest, and can be adjusted down about one inch. If you are looking for something more suitable for someone with a long neck, I would recommend either Wolf viola shoulder rest, both of which adjust up to 3.25 inches tall. Let us know if you have any other questions!

Asked On: 11/23/2018

Would this shoulder rest fit a 15.5" viola?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Yelena! Typically, this shoulder rest can adjust for a 15 to 16.5 inch viola. It adjusts from 235 mm (9.25 inches) to 270 mm (10.6 inches) wide, so you can measure the width of your lower bout to confirm if this shoulder rest will fit your instrument before purchase. I hope this helps!
