1 out of 5 “Beware ”

Reviewed by Catherine, 3 months ago

Beware this item will scratch you flute!
I bought the item to trial with a student. Trying out on my flute it is now scratched. Also I didn't find it of any help with keeping Right Hand index finger in a good position.

2 out of 5 “I wish I could say nothing but great things”

Reviewed by Misty, 1 year ago

This item does what it says on the tin, then it scratches the daylights out of your flute! I've used my Bo-Pep finger rest for the better part of the last fifteen years. It has damaged three of my flutes in that time and I've just refused to use it with my newest one. It's unfortunate that I've had to give up on this product, even though it helps my hand position and mitigates pain/strain in my left hand a great deal. I've switched to the Fingerport/Thumbport. I don't find them as comfortable as the Bo-Pep, but I just can't keep harming my flutes, even the cheap ones I play outside.

I have placed one of these very carefully, once, on a brand new flute. The flute now has very clear, permanent scratches around the tube. More than a little upset. The pinkie-port, for an extra pound or so, is head and shoulders above the bo-pep.

Reviewed by Krzysztof, 3 years ago

I've used one of these for a number of years and while it is useful, over that time it has put lots of tiny little scratches at the place where it sits on my flute (I don't constantly put it on and off but I do adjust it when needed).

4 out of 5 “Bo-Pep Flute Finger Rest”

Reviewed by Hilary, 5 years ago

My own teacher recommended this to me. She bought one to try out on a pupil and ended up keeping it for herself and buying another for the pupil. I found the same thing after I tried it out as it certainly helped my left hand to feel less tired. I now suggest it for most of my pupils if they are having difficulties, and certainly to those with smaller hands. The main problem is convincing them that it is worth the price. £8.50 for a small piece of plastic seems a lot and the packaging doesn't really make up for it!

This has helped my adult learner hands feel a lot more comfortable on the flute. My hands are more relaxed and less rigid and my fingers move more easily.
