"Magic Pad" incorporates a high-tech adhesive pad that can secure the whole shoulder pad on a violin/viola without using any straps or rubber bands. Therefore, the "Magic Pad" can be placed at any preferred location where the user feels the most comfortable. The adhesive pad, on the other hand, provides the optimal stickiness without damaging the varnish. To maintain proper stickiness of the adhesive pad, just use wet cloth or paper towel to wipe off the dust on the adhesive pad. The ARTINO SR-11 "Magic Pad" comes in different shapes and designs.
