It maintains a tonal clarity which a handkerchief cannot achieve, the pad rests directly on the chinrest and not the instrument. You'll be impressed by the comfort supplied by this foam cushioned pad. It is easily detachable but need not be removed to fit into your case. It is also washable. The Strad Pad is highly recommended for students. This model is the original beige colored standard size with velcro attachment.
