Tido Pad Violin Shoulder Rest & Chin Comforter 1/4-1/32

Violin Shoulder Rest

The Tido Pad Shoulder Rest and Chin Comforter for Violin is a great solution for violinists looking for more playing comfort and ideal for younger players who aren't quite ready for a conventional shoulder rest.

The Tido Pad goes over the chinrest, eliminating discomfort sometimes caused by the chinrest rubbing against the player’s neck or by the instrument rubbing against the collarbone.

The Tido Pad is a great first shoulder rest for young players, or it can be used in combination with a conventional shoulder rest.

The pad is made from soft foam that is covered in a soft velvety fabric that goes over the chin rest for maximum playing comfort. It covers the chinrest barrels and attaches to the corners of the c-bouts of the violin with soft black elastic.

If you find that the pad is too high, the interior foam can be removed for less height. Similarly if it is too low, more padding can be added to raise the height of the rest.

This is our go to solution for 1/32 violins, and is a great way to get children playing in a comfortable position.


  • Made from soft foam and covered in a soft velvety fabric.
  • Foam can be removed for less height.
  • Comes on and off with ease.
  • Often used as an alternative to the 'kitchen sponge', which is recommended in the Suzuki method.
