Kun Collapsible Violin & Viola Shoulder Rests


The Kun Collapsible is by far the most popular shoulder rest since its inception in 1975. Modeled on the Kun Original, the innovative Kun Collapsible has “feet” that fold down for easy carrying and storage, and incorporate Kun’s patented locking device to limit rotation.

Kun innovations include pioneering the use of composite materials which ensure that the shoulder rest is light, unique folding mechanisms on the Collapsible, Bravo and Voce rests. The Bravo model, constructed with Italian hand made flamed maple resembles the back of a fine violin. The base member of the Voce rest is made from aerospace-grade carbon fiber, chosen for its superior acoustic properties, strength and light weight, while incorporating a unique lateral adjusting mechanism.

Kun’s strategy is simple and rigorous: they combine high quality with creativity and technical innovation to provide products that consistently lead the field. A new ergonomic shape for ease and comfort in playing and simple mechanisms allowing the rest to be adjusted in three directions. As well, the Kun rest had been designed with sound quality in mind. Their objective was minimal contact with the instrument so that vibrations would not be absorbed.

Available for viola and violin.
