Thumbport ergonomic support. Suitable for students, professionals and casual players. Used worldwide, convenient and easily installed.
Being made from a round tube, the flute tends to roll while being played, and has inherent balance issues. The Thumbport counters the rolling, and helps establish a stable three-point balance support system freeing the musician from the effort of trying to physically control the instrument. The stability gained when using a Thumbport will help the musician produce a better and more consistent sound, and will aid in improved facility while reducing stress on fingers, hands and arms.
Before installing the Thumbport for the first time, wipe off the area with rubbing alcohol. This will reduce the likelihood of the Thumbport moving when in use. Because the contact surface is made of a soft plastic, it does not slide easily once in place on a clean surface. Snap the Thumbport onto the flute at around the F key where you would normally rest your thumb.
