I respect Kenny for developing an original design based on superb material. It's made of a soft plastic bonded to a rubbery (elastomer) material that has, for me, the exact feel and support that I desire.

The only problem may be that it may press into the structure of some instrument cases. One solution is just to remove it every time you pack the horn ... but I would fear losing it. My solution has been to slit the fabric in the case and dig out some of the foam padding, then glue a patch of similar fabric back so there is a sufficient dent in the material of the case to accommodate the rest.

Then, if the T rest doesn't fit snugly and securely on the horn, use a rubbery adhesive to glue it to the metal T rest.

For me it's been worth the effort on all 3 clarinets I play, the C, Bb and G.
