Hi Beth, I wanted to get some  advise on chin pads and covers. My daughter is beginning to develop a dry patch on her chin where the chin rest sits and I was wondering if purchasing one of these items might help prevent this developing. Also if they are good could you please point me in the direction of where best to get them from. Thanks. Sharon

Hi Frank and Beth, Thanks for the advise. I have invested in a Strad pad and so far so good.

Sharon, I know a lot of players like the Strad Pad. It is cushy but also kind of adhesive,to prevent the violin from slipping out from under the chin.

Hello Sharon:

Just so you know, if you order one of these, it most likely will not be black with a yellow elastic band.  Rather it will probably be a chocolate brown color with a brown elastic cloth band.  In my opinion, it is better looking than what you see in the photo.

Best wishes,

 

Frank

Hello Sharon:

I use several of these, and find them to be quite comfortable:

Shar Music - Cushy Chinrest Cushion

They are washable, and can be washed many times. They are also very inexpensive.

Best wishes,

Frank
