Ton Kooiman is well-known for his innovative products to make musicians’ game position better.
The “Student 3” thumb rest is an ergonomic and cheap improvement to standard thumb rests for oboe and clarinet. The hand will be maintained in a natural position ‘around’ the instrument by increasing the hand pressure surface. This adaptation improves the right hand position. Furthermore, the difficult and technical passages will be easier playable.
