The unique computer-modeled design of the EVEREST shoulder rest gives the viola to an ergonomically correct and comfortable playing angle. Teachers, students, and professionals alike have all praised this innovative and distinctive design: teachers love the way it trains correct playing angles, while students and professionals love the comfort, durability, and style.
The unscrew grippers and select alternate positions mean the rest is adjustbale for the best fit to the instrument. It is designed to fit 15" size violas, 15.5" size violas, 16" size violas, and 16.5" size violas.
Simple and Virtually Unbreakable, the one piece body integrated with adjustable leg height means that there are no angle brackets or swivel mechanisms to break, and no thumb knobs to misplace. The EVEREST Viola Shoulder Rest is made of a strong, high grade ABS material which provides both strength and flexibility, unlike the inexpensive polypropylene plastic that other shoulder rest manufacturers use.
Improved holding legs and foam and identical and interchangeable parts for both the left and right legs means that there is no longer any need to be confused as to which leg attaches to which side of the body. The newly engineered lyre-shaped holding legs are made of a soft, non-skid, wear-resistant material, with additional height requirements built right into the body of the shoulder rest. The foam is made from high quality, extra-thick and extra-soft neoprene for long-lasting comfort and excellent support.
Functionality and style combine in this distinctive 3D computer-modeled design of the EVEREST viola shoulder rest which maximises comfort without sacrificing style and elegance. Traditional areas of high stress are reinforced for long term durability. Engineered by Americans to American standards, this viola shoulder rest is built to last.
This shoulder rest is designed to help meet the growing needs of school-based strings programs. With limited funding available to these programs, students simply cannot afford the outrageous and expensive prices other shoulder rest manufacturers are charging so this is designed to be as low cost as possible but still of high quality.
