About This Item

The Shoulder Rest That Won't Fall Off!

Made in Europe, these new flexible shoulder rests enable the young violinist to start off right. Elegant and contemporary design, and with the benefits of the top-of-the-line Viva Diamond shoulder rest, at a much lower price! The feet, utilizing the Viva Diamond's patented Lateral Adjustment Clamping System, are made from strong and flexible tool steel, absorbing stress instead of transferring it to the instrument, and channeling stress away from the instrument itself; and they stay put, even during vigorous playing, when other shoulder rests often fall off.

The ergonomics of the Viva Flex start with an extremely sturdy plastic body in an S-shape, with dual-plane flexibility. This allows weight to be evenly distributed across the collarbone; this design significantly reduces fatigue, especially under grueling practice or performance conditions.

Your Viva Flex is collapsible: Fold the feet after you're done playing, for easy storage in your case. And your Viva la Musica remembers your settings -- when you unfold the feet and place your Viva la Musica on your violin, you will not need to adjust it again.

Available in four sizes: 4/4-3/4, 1/2-1/4, 1/4-1/8, 1/16-1/32, and your choice of four translucent colors: Red, Blue, Brown, or Purple:

Asked On: 05/24/2018

Are the VivaFlex shoulder rest made for viola? I need one for a 15' viola. Can you get it for me?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Lorena! Unfortunately, we do not carry a Viva Flex shoulder rest for viola. Viva La Musica does make several different models of viola shoulder rest, though, which I've linked here for you. I hope this helps!

Asked On: 11/01/2016

I'm trying to gather a range of shoulder rest options for my students to test in my studio. I teach a lot of younger children playing on rentals equipped with junky rests. I mainly recommend foam rests for these kids because I have trouble finding smaller sizes that can adjust for height enough for narrow chests, or kids with instruments slightly too large for them. How is the vertical adjustability on this?

SHAR Answer:

Hi Kirbee! You can make fine adjustments in height by rotating the rest leg screws. Please contact us at 1-800-248-7427 and we would be happy to make some shoulder rest suggestions to help your students!
