The Advanced Ergonmic properties of Gel make it the perfect material for a violin chinrest.
With texture like a baby's skin, Gel gently molds to your chin, resulting in a chinrest that firts like it was just made for you.
The ebony colour and sculpted contour maintain the look of a traditional chinrest. So, throw that hanky away...
The GelRest is a contoured gel pad which attaches via peel-and-stick adhesive to your chinrest.
Rather than simply cut from a flat sheet, like other cushioning materials, each GelRest is cast into a mold to achieve the complex, contoured shape that fits anyone comfortably, yet maintains the look of a traditional chinrest.
The gel material used for the GelRest contains no silicone, and is even approved by the FDA. It's non-slip, even when wet, so holding your instrument is comfortable and effortless on hot summer days, or cool autumn nights.
Models and Sizes: The GelRest is available in Black as well as a selection of colors and patterns, but only in 4/4 size.
Dimensions: The GelRest ranges from 4 mm in height at its thinnest point to 8mm in height at its thickest, and weighs about 16 grams or 1/2 oz. The hand-carved wood frame measures about 102 mm (4 inches) long and 62 mm (2 3/8inches) in width.
To Clean: Gel is easy to clean, and, unlike other cushioning materials, will not absorb odors or trap bacteria. We recommend cleaning in place and wiping as needed with soap and water, or alcohol. The pad can also be polished with instrument polish or ArmorAll.
Durability: The GelRest indeed is very comfortable, but also virtually indestructible. The gel does not compress or flatten over time. The gel is a solid material and cannot leak. Still, keep sharp objects away and a GelRest will last indefinitely. Replacement pads will be available should they ever be needed.
Guarantee: The GelRest is guaranteed to be free from defects for a period of one year from the purchase date. In addition, if the purchaser is not satisfied with the product for any reason within 90 days of purchase, you may return it to us for a full refund. Refund of shipping cost is not included. Proof of purchase must be supplied to receive a cash refund.
