Violin and viola chin-rests, handmade to measure, personalized by Jacques Gay, for international violinists and soloists, in my studio in South West France.


I am proud that by the precision of my chin rests, I have successfully adjusted the playing position of many world-famous violin soloists, who now enjoy greater freedom of expression, pain-free, and with more technical ease.
