Shoulder Rests

We stock an excellent range of shoulder rests for violin and viola. Our selection features leading brands (see below) in most available styles and sizes. We have found there to be no superior shoulder rest in our range. What is important is the correct shape for the individual.  


Please visit our Christchurch store for a fitting. For those based outside of Christchurch but within New Zealand we are generally happy to courier out a small selection of shoulder rests for a five working-day trial. Some conditions may apply.

We stock replacement parts for most of our shoulder rest brands, most parts are sold separately. Prices vary.
