I've found that if I use a hand towel instead of the Kun shoulder rest that I was given when I purchased my first violin, it seems more comfortable and the violin sounds more like a violin even in my beginner hands.
I'm wondering if anyone has made their own foam shoulder rest and how it was done. I see them for sale on various websites but I am thin (family genetics) with a long neck. I would need something a bit taller (or thicker) than the commercial foam shoulder rests I see for sale.
I'll go to a couple of stores today and look for some foam that might work as well as larger, durable rubber bands. Any insight and information that would assist in creating my own foam shoulder rest would be highly appreciated.
