About This Item

World's Most Versatile Shoulder Support... And Without Rubber Bands!

From the maker of the finest cello and bass support products, the new Xeros is the most innovative and comfortable shoulder rest on the market. Made from finest quality neoprene cellular rubber foam with a soft finish and firm support that will last over time. It attaches safely and directly by means of a special gentle suction strip, and it's just as easy to detach - but won't come off while playing! And best of all, no rubber bands are needed to hold it in place (But, we included two just in case you want to use the older method of attachment).

Place the Xeros Shoulder Cushion in any position - you are not restricted by feet or rubber bands that can only hold in one place. Find the position that works for you!

Available in eight sizes, including standard and tall heights. All sizes will fit all sizes of violin or viola down to 1/8 size. (Extra small is recommended for 1/10 size and smaller violins). Depending on how much support you want, pick the size that works best for you. Many professional players prefer the small or extra small sizes.

Made in the USA

Attention: Fresh, soft, or brittle varnish can be removed by contact with any gripping surface. If you use an antique instrument, recently had your instrument refinished, or are concerned that your instrument's varnish is soft, you should use this accessory with caution. To avoid possible varnish removal, choose a clip-on shoulder rest, or one that attaches with elastic or rubber bands only.

Question by:

  • Trish Myers
  • Scottsdale, AZ

Asked On: 07/09/2018

What size would you suggest for 15 1/4 viola? And if this doesn't work for me, is it returnable?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Trish! These shoulder rests are not sized for specific instrument sizes, but each size offers a different amount of height, support, and surface area for your shoulder to rest on. You could use any size for your instrument, it just depends on how much padding you want. The larger sizes will offer more cushion and support, while the smaller sizes work well for players that don't need a lot of height or don't want the extra cushion. I hope this helps!

Hello. I have a three year old that will be playing a 1/16 Franz Hoffman violin. Is this compatible?/would you recommend this for her?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Joy! This Xeros shoulder cushion is compatible with any 1/16 to 1/10 size violin and should provide enough padding and support for your younger player.

What does the suction strip look like?

SHAR Answer:

Hello, Angie. It is just a shiny black square in the middle of the back of the Xeros, across the whole width, which does not feel sticky to the touch but grips securely to flat surfaces without leaving any residue. There is no adhesive and you cannot see any sort of "suction cup", but it behaves much like a suction cup would.

Asked On: 09/09/2017

Are the dimensions correct for the Standard Large size? Doesn't make sense that the tall end should be lower than Standard Medium....

SHAR Answer:

Hi Ruth! All dimensions listed under "Features/Specs" are correct. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
