Hi everyone,

I guess Chuck Levin's is the place to go.=A0=A0 That is where I had bought =
my current clarinet.=A0 Yes I agree the thumb rest on the clarinet is not i=
n a good position and there are not many options for positioning in a prope=
r ergonometric fitting.=A0=A0=A0 =

When I was a child and teenager 40 some years ago I had a metal clarinet (a=
Bb clarinet) and played in the high school band.=A0=A0 Never had a problem=
with the weight of the instrument and being able to hold it still without =
making my thumb tired and achy.=A0=A0 I had not played the clarinet for man=
y years.=A0 Then as an adult I bought a Buffet wood clarinet (also a Bb). =
=A0 I am wondering if a wood clarinet is heavier than a metal clarinet.=A0 =
I dont have that old metal clarinet anymore so I can't put both side by sid=
e to compare weight and position of thumb rest.=A0

Arthur,

This is a quick and dirty "fix" I do with all our rental horns in the store=
. It still is not high enough, but is a big improvement. It isn't a Bay, bu=
t it is free. =

School teachers should do it to the whole clarinet section. First take the =
thumb rest off, then cork it using Super Glue. After that re-mount it. Don'=
t EVER get Super Glue on the plastic.

The cork can be put on a little thick and then shaped. I often just slice w=
edges out of composite wine corks.

Kurt

i.e. with screws below the plate?
