The ArcRest Thin Set* includes two thinner pads, for players who require less height: 5/16″ and 7/16″. Fits 3/4-4/4 violins & most violas under 16 inches. For large violas, check out the ArcRests for 16+
The design of the ArcRest was inspired by great players of the 20th century who balanced the violin on three points: the collarbone, the jaw, and the hand. Unlike other shoulder rests, the ArcRest does not disturb the natural relationship between the instrument and the player. The violin is not elevated, but sits in its natural position on the collarbone, supported by the ArcRest.
