Ton Kooiman Etude 3 Thumb Rest

  • Great comfort and balance for the demanding player.
  • Prevents fatigue and injury over many years of playing and relaxes all muscles even the neck.
  • Supports a thumb and hand position by their wide range of adjustability.
  • Speeds up technique and supports a "flow-state" of playing.
  • Facilitates even an improvement of your tone quality.
  • It's so much easier to carry your instrument now! Works for clarinet or oboe.
  • No callous on thumb or cramping of hand. Easy to install using a mounting slide by your tech!
  • Provides for a natural and individual hand position.
  • The hand opens more for freedom in technical phrases.
  • The thumb is held higher and is either straight or slightly bent. The result is a "natural and individual" posture.
  • Much of the energy used for supporting the weight then becomes available for handling the instrument. And can be used to improve control and speed up paying technique.
  • Easier reach of lower keys.
  • High-quality materials and construction for lifelong comfort.

Small size has a slightly larger cushion where the thumb sits, and is best for people with smaller thumbs.
