BELVELIN by FIOLOSOFEN
The Swedish made Belvelin Collarbone Rests are formed to facilitate a healthy posture and give full freedom in the movements when playing the violin. They are made of soft and supportive cellular rubber that keeps their shape and color for years. The dense rubber material makes them firm yet flexible.
The Belvelin Collarbone Rests come in three sizes: small, medium and large. All three sizes can be used for all violin sizes and be placed anywhere on the violin depending on the shape and desire of the violinist. The Belvelin Collarbone Rests can be mounted with one or two rubber bands.
The Belvelin Collarbone Rests were designed in 1993 by the violin teacher Eva Belvelin for students who complained about discomfort or had a fear of dropping the violin. Today the Belvelin Collarbone Rests are used by many Concert Masters, Violin Professors, and Violinists of all ages.
The Belvelin Collarbone Rests are Made in Sweden by Fiolosofen.

"I believe Eva [Belvelin] might be the best violin teacher in Europe right now. Her team of students, Scandinavian Strings, performing at the European String Teachers' Association's conference in Paris, displayed excellent violin technique, beautiful sound and intonation, musical rendering and a joyful relaxed attitude." • Elspeth Iliff, Vice President of ESTA Central Board
