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.
It gives your a sense control and of a firm “grip” on your instrument.
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.
The Etude3 has a metal hook covered with soft rubber and a casing with improved ergonomics.
The hook is adjustable in height as well.
There are several hidden features to improve the physical strengt of the design such as
better materials and a redesign of dove tail slide and mountingslide.
