Ton Kooiman Etude 3 Thumb Rest For Clarinet
The Etude3 is a light weight thumb rest for clarinet and Oboe made out of durable plastics. The Etude enhances the freedom of playing. Faster and easier movement of the ring- and little finger and it prevents fatigue of the thumb and hand.
The Etude makes it possible to move the pressure point of the thumb rest to the first phalanx of the thumb to the space between the two joints. The lever momentum is much smaller at this point so the thumb can support the weight more easily.
Much of the energy used for supporting the weight then becomes available for handling the instrument.
New features: 1) The Etude3 has a new metal hook covered with soft rubber and a casing with improved ergonomics.
There are several hidden features to improve the physical strength of the design such as better materials and a redesign of dove tail slide and mounting slide.
