AcoustaGrip was founded by famous Violinist Albert Stern, who was dissatisfied with using a traditional hard clamping shoulder rest that would limit his movement, and the adhesives used on foam shoulder rests that could damage his violins. Acoustagrip uses micro-air technology and acoustical foam to give you the best support and the best sound.
The latest unique design in violin and viola shoulder rests. The AcoustaGrip Shoulder Rest attaches easily underneath your instrument and adjusts to the shape of your shoulder. The AcoustaGrip increases volume and overtones by not clamping onto the edges. When you Clamp wood it stops the Natural Sounds and Overtones. Old style rigid, brace-like “Clamp-On” shoulder rests suppress the sound, may injure your instrument and your collarbone over time. Clamp-On shoulder rests will also restrict your freedom of motion. Most Great violinist never used them and neither should anyone.
