Fred Telerico, friend of Violaman.com and co-founder (along with his son) of "The Slipper," has introduced a new model in his line of excellent, hand-made wooden shoulder rests for the viola. To celebrate, he and his son are having a give-away! Visit the FaceBook page for more details about The Slipper and how you can enter to win one of your own! LINK

Now that you mention it, I have no idea. I think it was announced on FaceBook, but since it wasn't anyone I knew, I just let it slip my thoughts.

On the plus side, I will be getting one of Fred's excellent Slipper Rests soon, myself. He approached me with a local (to me) task to undertake on his behalf in trade.

Thanks Keith. Funny thing is that I didn't get a notice of this thread. Weird things going on lately.

Good to know that Fred is actively promoting the Artist :-)
