Ton Kooiman Prima Flute Thumb Rest

Prima Thumb Rest for Flute

Properly balancing the flute has never been easy – until now!

The Prima Thumb Rest prevents the instrument from rolling towards you. It also reduces the flute’s pressure against your lips, it incites a correct position of your fingers, and helps to prevent tension in fingers, hands, arms, and shoulders. The ergonomically shaped thumb plateau prevents the thumb to slip away to the left, and the flute to roll towards player, especially while changing octaves.

The Prima thumb rest allows the right hand to be more open and relaxed, therefore the ring- and little finger move easier to the lower keys.
