The poly-pad contoured shoulder rest is remarkably comfortable, simple, and inexpensive.

Unhappy with his shoulder rest, Michael Kimber began to experiment with creating his own design based on the actual slope and curve of the human shoulder. After a period of testing out various foams and densities and perfecting the cut and shape, the poly-pad was finally born. His design quickly caught on regionally with his students and colleagues. Now over 30 years later, Kimber's poly-pad is loved by musicians around the globe. Others have attempted to imitate the poly-pad, but these cheap imitations are quickly discarded. The combination of the poly-pad's uniquely ergonomic design coupled with the perfect amount of density is only found in the real poly-pad.
