Simple. It all started with a simple quest for the best tone from a valuable instrument. After a major purchase I noticed the slight pinch in the tone of my mint condition J.B. Vuillaume violin when resting the back of the instrument against my shoulder. Then I created this platform to straddle the instrument. The improved tone was astonishing!
When others noticed the resonant tone they tried my shell. Many approved but needed more adjustment options. After being awarded US patents and reaching the market famed performers were seen using my unique comfort solution. Many variants on the adjustable padding later the modular components became a sensation. The search for better materials never ends. Read on. Today we have Floam!
