"Good with Modification"

hobbyist various Ringoes, NJ

My daughter got me one after I told her about an occasionally painful thumb joint. It definitely puts the thumb joints in a different position. But I found the saddle didn't follow the contour of my thumb, making it uncomfortable. I was able to easily re-countour it with some sandpaper, leveling the bulge where your thumb supports the horn and where your thumb rests. It feels much better and time will tell if it actually helps relieve the joint pain.

Great product - it helps relax your right hand and makes playing easier. Try this: form a nice, round letter "C" with your right hand, and see how easily your fingers move. Now pinch the hand tighter, with your thumb closer to your fingers and try again. Big difference. That's what this thumb saddle does for you. I also bought an almost $200 Kooiman thumb saddle as well. I do like it, but I like this thumb saddle even better, and it's easy to get on and off. You can't lose - give it a try!

This product relieves tension on the right thumb. For me it gives extra agility to my right little finger. It was an agile little digit anyway after years of practice, but now it is allowed to be relentless with the thumb saddle. It is not for all players. I would think that people with especially long or thick fingers might find it a hamper. However for me it works well. I'm ordering a few more. (Works well on my Buffet, Selmer, and my Buffet Albert System clarinets.)

"Tops!"

This is a must for the clarinetist that double on the Eb sopranino clarinet. It fees up the right hand from the tight almost cramped hand position and certainly eases he access to the right inex finger trill keys.

"Wasn't comfortable"

The title says it all. I was interested to see if I noticed an improvement in my fingering from using it, but I never used it long enough to tell. After ten minutes my thumb was already sore, and I just couldn't use it any longer. It might have worked if the material was softer/spongier or something.

After decades of clarinet playing, I found this thumbrest immediately improved my right hand position, opening it up a bit as advertised. I never play without it now. Mind you, the improvement may be subtle; it will not make you a different player - but for the price/ease of use, it's a great deal!

This is more than just a thumb pad. This saddle makes playing easier and promotes correct finger curvature. It is well worth the pirce - probably the best accessory you can buy as far as enhancing your playing.

My thumb and hand were hurting enough to consider some of the more complicated solutions, but I tried the Ridenour thumb saddle first. After a couple weeks the problem is much improved and as a bonus I think it allows a better position for the right hand and fingers. It's simple and inexpensive and it works.
