 Pretend for a minute that you don't have to grip your violin between your chin and shoulder. Imagine that the violin stays effortlessly in place, your head and hands free to move. Even the most aggressive bowing doesn't move the instrument. It seems to float lightly but securely next to your body in the perfect playing position.

If you could take all the energy you use to hold your violin and apply it to your playing, would you play differently?

The Balanced Shoulder Rest liberates violinists from the limitations of holding the violin.  It uses the physics of a simple lever to counterbalance the weight of the instrument.  A slim three-point mounting bracket cradles the violin securely and attaches to a flexible, weighted aluminum arm.  The arm wraps gently around the upper torso, lightly but securely spreading the load over the shoulder, chest, and upper back.  Adjustable connecting screws allow the musician to maneuver the instrument into optimum playing position and fine-tune it for comfort.  The violin stays securely in place without help from the hands or chin, but it remains mobile and responsive to the player's movements.

The Balanced Shoulder Rest converts your holding energy to playing energy, freeing you to play better.

For acoustic violins, the three-point mounting bracket fits inside most violin cases while it is still attached to the instrument, much the way a conventional chin rest does.

The primary focus is on bowed instruments - the violin, viola, cello and double bass. Ned explains, "Bowed electric instruments have been made since the mid-thirties. Unfortunately, most of these instruments are the victims of the misplaced idea that an electric instrument should soun...
