Subj: [kl] Adjustable thumb rest for Eb clarinet
Date: Thu, 20 Jul 2000 14:10:39 -0400


Am playing a little Eb clarinet these days - not the norm for me - and I
notice that the thumb rest is placed so low (for me) that it creates a
great deal of tension in my right hand. It surely isn't the weight of
the little beast. I am wondering if an adjustable thumb rest made for a
Bb/A would fit this (Leblanc 1176) Eb. The thumb rest on the Eb horn
looks from first perusal to be of a similar size to that normally used
on a Bb/A. As I play a Rossi Bb (w/wooden thumb rest), I can't compare
quickly. Does anyone know for sure?

Many thanks,
