"I have now been using The Loft Violin Shoulder Rest for two years now and must comment on how much I am enjoying the comfortable fit of my violin. I have tried every system imaginable up to this point and this inexpensive and simple system is by far the most secure and the least fussy. The sponge moulds to my shoulder and stays put allowing ample support and freedom of movement at the same time."

The Loft Sponge is extremely utilitarian and flexible. It can be adjusted to fit the preferences of each user. Install with the thick end of the pad a little off center and the thin end extending beyond the side of the violin. (See picture at right)
Placement will vary according to the type of chinrest and can be adjusted for comfort and fit. A single rubber band attached to the tail gut or end button and stretched to the bass side of the instrument is all it should take to secure The Sponge. Although the pad comes in five sizes, the sizes can be interchanged for comfort and personal preference.
