Viva Flex Violin Shoulder Rest
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:

Ratings & Reviews
I much prefer this shoulder rest
I played Kun for years but this is much more adjustable and actually says attached to my violin. Adjusting it isn't the most intuitive but basically you loosen it and move it around and find where you like it the best. It's adjustable in ways most shoulder rests aren't. It doesn't fold up but it's a trade off with how comfortable and stable it is.
Good shoulder rest!
I have used this rest for several years, it is comfortable and very adjustable to fit the player. The plastic its made of is semi flexible for a great fit and secure hold. The only reason its 4 stars not 5, is that it seems to have a weak spot in the middle. I've broken 2 of them in half after about 3 yrs of regular use apiece. They just snap in half while I'm playing. They last long enough before breaking though, that I will keep buying. Overall this is my favorite rest. Very nice.
