Since 1976 Johnson String Instrument has provided teachers with exceptional customer service. By offering the best rental program in the country, a vast selection of new and antique instruments and bows, sheet music, method books, teaching aids, and every imaginable stringed instrument accessory, we help teachers maintain their teaching studios.
In 1997, Peter Mach introduced the Mach One Shoulder Rest for violin and viola, surprisingly the first commercially available shoulder rest made out of the most natural of materials, wood. The "S" shape fits comfortably on your shoulder and minimizes the size of the feet. These are crafted from a single piece of maple and have a lifetime guarantee. They will never touch the ribs of your violin and will not scratch your valuable instrument.
