|Genius accessory for violin, viola.|
The Soloist violin/viola shoulder rests offer 3 unique layers of acoustical material, each of a different density and responsiveness. One layer is made from special acoustical material, delivering enhanced sound, ultimate comfort and a secure hold while protecting against bruising, sores and marks on your chin, neck and collarbone and relieving shoulder pain. Another layer attaches to the back of your instrument using micro-air technology. The White Layer gives the Soloist violin shoulder rest added projection, increased resonance and allows the musician to create the maximum overtones for the Violin or Viola.
The Soloist’s Ergonomic design sets the violin or viola’s position at the most favored angle for ease of performance and the best sound projection. The Soloist uses no clamps or glues that would stop the wood’s vibrations or damage the violin’s finish. The 1697 ‘Napoleon’ Stradivarius and the 1778 ‘DeLay’ Guadagnini enjoyed AcoustaGrip for many years. Both instruments were acclaimed for their condition and set world record sales prices.The AcoustaGrip is a non-clamping, non-stiff and non-muting shoulder pad lift accessory; It does not clamp onto the instrument, as clamping mutes and diminishes the wood’s vibrations. It provides an comfortable ergonomically designed cushion that fits between the instrument and the shoulder of the musician that will not fall off and sticks to the instrument without glues.
The AcoustaGrip will not dent, scratch, or damage the sides, back or any part of the instrument. It can be removed and replaced again and again and is easily cleaned with a wet paper towel if needed.
Many find it also lessens and may diminish the musicians sores and markings on their chin, neck and collarbone, as it allows constant freedom. It stores easily in the instrument case. The AcoustaGrip increases the volume of sound, adds better quality and increases the production of overtones.
