This collapsible Everest shoulder rest has a uniquely designed folding mechanism that is elegant and extremely robust and without pinch points. When unfolded, this shoulder rest is identical to the traditional Easy Model (non-collapsible) EVEREST Shoulder Rest that everyone loves. The comfortable curve and top quality USA manufacturing makes the EVEREST Shoulder Rest the top of its class. All EVEREST Shoulder Rests now comes with Everest Style gripper that is softer, more flexible, and improves the gripping function over traditional versions. Fully adjustable to fit 3/4 size violins by moving the grippers to inner positions. Although it was originally designed to fit 4/4 and 3/4 size violins, but it will also fit most of the 1/2 violins.
