VC GIVEAWAY | Win 1 of 5 KUN Bravo Collapsible Shoulder Rests

KUN is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year! Enter now to win 1 of 5 Bravo Collapsible shoulder rests for Violin or Viola


To help celebrate KUN's 50th anniversary, The Violin Channel, in conjunction with our good friends at KUN, is giving away five KUN Bravo collapsible shoulder rests.

The Bravo shoulder rest was launched in 1999 and is a favorite of professional violinists all around the world including James Ehnes, Lara St. John, Kelly Hall-Tompkins, and many more.

The Bravo’s base is made from bent hardwood laminates oriented to provide the precise combination of strength and flexibility a shoulder rest requires. These bases are hand-made in Italy from European curly maple to reflect the back of a fine violin. The shoulder rests are made and hand-assembled in Ottawa, Canada.

The Bravo shoulder rests are collapsible and available for full-size violin and viola.

The first KUN shoulder rest patent was granted to Joseph Kun 50 years ago. The Czech violin pedagogue and inventor had immigrated to Ottawa where he met Marina and together they developed the Kun business and brand which is now a staple for string players around the world.

The landmark is being celebrated all year, culminating with an anniversary concert that will take place in Ottawa on July 30, 2022, and which will be streamed on The Violin Channel.

Entries close Tuesday, August 14, 2022.
