I am interested in getting a chin rest pad for my violin. I think I might get one of the gel ones, but I was wondering of anyone else has tried them. I need one because the back of my jaw bone will sit awkwardly on my chin rest sometimes. So does anyone know if they help? Or does anyone know of other chin rest pads?
Could your problem be that you haven’t found the right chin rest? There’s all different types of shapes and heights out there and often people experiment what works best for them. A pad could help, but if the chin rest is an awkward shape for you, you should probably find a better rest first.
