Comfortable. Functional. Practical. These are probably the kinds of words you’d conjure up if asked to describe your shoulder rest. And all of these adjectives describe a shoulder rest that is working well for its player. But Kun was hoping for descriptors with a bit more flair, especially from its younger customers. Thus, it has rolled out shoulder rests in a variety of colors: atomic green, razzle dazzle, blue moon, and papaya in its Junior Collapsible models (for 1/2- and 3/4-size violins). Who says a shoulder rest can’t be fun?
