Kun products have been known and appreciated world wide for over 35 years. The first Kun Shoulder Rest was designed and patented by Violin and Bow Maker Joseph Kun, who was a renowned violin pedagogue in his native Czechoslovakia before emigrating to Canada. Prior to the introduction of Kun rests in the marketplace, there were very few such devices available, with players often having to struggle with limited and makeshift solutions to correct or avoid discomfort while playing their violin or viola. The early Kun Shoulder Rest possessed two breakthrough characteristics: a new ergonomic shape for ease and comfort in playing and simple mechanisms allowing the rest to be adjusted in three directions. As well, the Kun rest had been designed with sound quality in mind. Our objective was minimal contact with the instrument, so that vibrations would not be absorbed. Thus, Kun basically established the world market for shoulder rests. Kun’s original prototype pioneered the market and its original shape remains popular today. Together with all of the important features of Kun rests, it provides the ideal in shoulder rest functionality.
