Description

The Etude is a light weight thumb rest for clarinet made out of durable plastics. The Etude enhances the freedom of playing. Faster and easier movement of the ring- and little finger and it prevents fatigue of the thumb and hand. It gives your a sense control and of a firm grip on your instrument.

The Etude makes it possible to move the pressure point of the thumb rest to the first phalanx of the thumb to the space between the two joints. The lever momentum is much smaller at this point so the thumb can support the weight more easily.

Much of the energy used for supporting the weight then becomes available for handling the instrument and can be used to improve control and speed up playing technique.

The use of the Etude offers you a new way of holding your instrument!

Instead of holding in the tendons, the musician will now hold the instrument

in an active way!

The thumb is held higher and is either straight or slightly bent. The result is a natural and individual posture.

Chose the row of holes in the mounting slide, that allows the Etude to be fitted on the instrument at a height, that when you are playing the instrument, the thumb will be opposite the index finger.

No new holes have to be drilled. You can use the holes from the old thumb rest.

Professional Installation recommended.

This pouch will hold and protect your valuable woodwind mouthpiece. Available in two sizes:




P200 Small holds Bb Clarinet or Alto Saxophone mouthpiece.




P201 Large holdsTenor or Baritone Saxophones mouthpiece.

Available in two thickness'.  Thin clear (.33mm) works best if used behind the ligature to prevent scratching the mouthpiece. The black thick (.87mm) is most popular if used on the mouthpiece beek where the teeth rest. Each Bay package comes with 4 cushions. Please choose the appropriate thickness. 

You will never lose that favorite reed with these brightly colored neon edge Muncy Reed Caddys. Every Reed Caddy is laser cut from a clear poly-crystal material available in 5 colors. Each reed is held in place by two retainers keeping them safely flat against the poly-crystal caddy. Reed channels are numbered so that you may organize your reeds for proper rotation.

Keep clean with warm water and mild liquid detergent; wipe with soft cloth; avoid abrasive cleaners and aromatic solvents.

Available in four hot neon colors!

  • Blueberry
  • Lemon-Lime
  • Tangerine
  • Watermelon
  • Plus Crystal Clear

*Comes with a humidity pouch to retain the moisture in dry climates, or remove from the pouch to allow the reeds to dry.

*Add the Rico Reed Vitalizers to increase humidity in the Muncy Reed Caddy Humidity Pouch.
