Subj: [kl] Vol 25, Issue 2 Set it on your Leg

It seems if you are having so much trouble with your thumb it would be
simpler to just set the clarinet on your leg I know that might be
considered sacrilege but many clarinetists do it. If the middle B and low E
sound covered you can just lift the clarinet for that note.

Have any of you ever tried a

Rumba Thumb Support NC75170

See link:

http://www.ncmedical.com/item_1284.html

A friend of mine asked a sports therapist who also plays clarinet once in a
while as a hobby about my problem with holding the clarinet with the right
thumb and the sports therapist suggested the Rumba Thumb Support.??

Before I spend money on it, I thought I would check and see if anyone uses
it.? To me it looks like a splint and would keep the right thumb completely
immobile.? I don't think that is what I should be doing while playing the
instrument.?

A friend of mine uses something like this and it doesn't cause him any
problems.

Indeed. :-)

If you have to mic a saxophone, the rest of the band is TOO LOUD!

And if you tell the band to play softer so you can hear 3 trombones play "O
Come All Ye Faithful" in Anderson's "A Christmas Festival", somebody's doing
something wrong... :-)
