5 out of 5 “Two Thumbs Up!”

Reviewed by Lisa, 3 months ago

It had been 40 years since I played the Clarinet when I decided to pick one up and take some private lessons. After numerous tragedies in my life, it was suggested that I find something to do that would be fun and bring me joy. I almost picked up right where I left off and immediately fell right back in love. I started to experience repetitive stress injuries such as tendonitis, bursitis, back, neck and shoulder pain and, the worst, trigger thumb. In sheer desperation I began adding prosthetic attachments to my instrument. The Ton Kooiman "Etude 3" Clarinet/Oboe Thumb Rest was my only hope! It is a MIRACLE!

It is my opinion that this should be on every clarinet produced. Playing clarinet requires sustained extension to the thumb to hold the instrument while allowing fingers to curl into position. My injury actually began in elementary school and had I not decided to play again, I would never have known. 50% of all musicians have hand related injuries, it can limit, interrupt or end a career. Using the thumb rest from the onset could prevent this in the future for those very few people who do end up playing beyond their youth!

Good thumb rest. Easy to adjust. Takes time to actually fit to instrument though.
