Simple sore thumb fix
« on: June 20, 2018, 04:00:56 AM »
My clarinet has a rubber thumb rest which works ok, but I find it gets sore where it presses against the instrument body itself. The fix was simple. I had some old gloves and I simply cut the thumb off, snipped the end off so its like a sleeve, voilà.

Thanks Windy. I got a bit despondent after upping to 2.5 reeds but its not so bad. You have bad days but you just have to get over it.
