The Thumbport is a revolution in holding the flute. By providing additional support and improving the balance of the instrument, it reduces strain and stress on the hands, and allows for greater freedom in finger movement. Simple to clip-on and doesn't scratch or otherwise damage the finish of the instrument. Supplied in a cloth pouch. Available in a range of colours to really customise your flute!
Recommended by William Bennett, Emily Beynon and Wissam Boustany, amongst many others.
"The Thumbport allows greater balance in holding the flute. It is comprised of a C-shaped shell and a thumb-like extension. The Thumbport helps the player to place the right hand at an efficient spot and provides additional support.
"The Thumbport guides the player's right thumb to support the flute at an angle. The force created at this angle is the sum of two partial vectors: one supports the flute from below, and the other counters horizontal rotation. The extension arm rests on the thumb gently, which easily prevents the flute from rolling backwards."
