Linnd Sandvox Unlock

The unique LINND Violin Shoulder Rest was originally conceived and designed in the Shetland Islands by fiddler Kenny Johnson. The development of the LINND violin shoulder rest combined hand craftsmanship with the latest Computer Aided Design techniques to produce what is probably the greatest-ever advance in the history of the violin shoulder rest. This advance in design is so revolutionary that the Linnd shoulder rest has already gained patents in Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, the UK and the USA and is now in the final stages of obtaining the grant of pending patents in Europe. Design registration and patents are also in place in major international markets.

In overcoming the design flaws that plague all other available conventional violin shoulder rests, Kenny Johnson has developed a shoulder rest that allows a user’s violin to resonate with complete freedom from restriction, dramatically improving both tone and volume in comparison to other shoulder rests. The LINND shoulder rest’s patented additional transverse bar eliminates splay and its small, elegant feet hold the rest in position with the minimum of pressure. The use of high-technology materials means that the LINND violin shoulder rest is extremely light in weight, further reducing any potential effect on the sound of any violin to which it is fitted.

The vast majority of conventional shoulder rests rely on a relatively high pressure across the back of a violin to resist their tendency to splay open and to fall off when the instrument is being played. This transverse pressure badly restricts the vibration of the back of the violin and changes its resonant frequency, thus diminishing both tone and volume. In addition, the large feet of a conventional rest bear both on the back and on the sides of the instrument, further restricting its ability to resonate freely.  Using a pad as a rest - or even no shoulder rest at all - can also result in a tone-suffocating pressure being placed on the back of the violin.

Made in Great Britain from high-technology materials and featuring a unique, padded form factor whose width and height is adjustable to fit virtually any violin and/or violinist, the patent-protected LINND shoulder rest offers the musician a combination of ergonomic and sonic advantages that we believe cannot be surpassed, let alone equalled, by any other violin shoulder rest.

Why You Should Use a LINND Violin Shoulder Rest

• The revolutionary, patent-protected, unique design of the LINND shoulder rest overcomes flaws in conventional shoulder rests.

• The extremely light weight of the LINND shoulder rest has minimal effect on the sound of your violin.

• The structure of the LINND Laxo and Lunna shoulder rest is designed to create a totally stable supporting platform for your violin.

• The "no-splay" design of the LINND shoulder rest means that very little pressure is required across the back of your violin to keep the Linnd rest in position.  This lack of constriction allows back of the instrument to resonate freely, dramatically increasing the tone and volume of your violin in comparison to other conventional shoulder rest designs.

• The small feet of the LINND shoulder rest are designed to have their point of contact outside the purfling line and therefore, when compared to other brands, do not dampen the back and sides of your violin.

• For maximum ease of use and playing comfort, the LINND shoulder rest is easily and quickly adjustable in both height and fitting width to fit virtually any 4/4 violin and player.  The LINND rest has sufficient adjustment range to fit many 3/4 violins.

• The ergonomic and sonic advantages of the LINND shoulder rest cannot be surpassed, or even equalled, by any other violin shoulder rest.

• Each and every part of a LINND shoulder rest comes with a lifetime warranty to its original purchaser that covers both materials and workmanship. Registration is required to activate this warranty. Damage caused through accident or misuse and normal wear and tear is excluded.
